500 mL bottle. Incredibly attractive color on the pour, a real, deep golden. Not necessarily all that typical of many a Hefewieizen, which often come with a somewhat lighter, yellow hue rather than the deep golden color we get here. Head is solid with some lace and retention, and perhaps more in line with something that is typical for the style. Light banana in the nose and tastes. A little hop bite in the back end to complement the usual banana, clove, bubblegum and light phenols. This is...

Extraordinary that I have not reviewed this before now. $4.29 for the 500 mL bottle from the new Total Wine store in the Perimeter area of Atlanta/Dunwoody, GA, USA. The appearance of this beer always confuses me a little - much darker than I always expect. Almost has a Dunkel hue. Cloudy, and the head is not as impressive as some in the style. In the Tucher Weizen glass it looks orange more than yellow. Standard yeast, clove and banana/bubble gum nose with the emphasis on the yeast as far as...

Schneider Wiesen Edel-Weisse Mein Grunes

Very difficult to believe that I have never reviewed this one but here it is! Bottle is a bit of a gusher. Poured into the Tucher 500 mL Weizen glass the beer forms a thin, slightly light looking head a top of the dark orange, clouded body. Lace is not really in the equation. Nose and tastes are quite fruity with some acidic apple notes. The fruit notes are of the sweetened variety rather than the purer, unadulterated sharpness. Body is a little light for me. This is just a disappointing brew...

Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse

So this is the US version of this collab, my understanding being that the two beers are slightly different. $11.99 from Green's on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA. GREAT looking 750mL corked & caged bottle, a super looking presentation. It pours a light, honey colored body and a big head in the Tucher 500 mL glass. A lot lighter than the other version. After an initial big frothy head it fades to give a much less dense, wispy type of head. Some very fine lace. Smell has pretty much a sweet, light...

Additional notes 10/06/23 (pictured) Another beer that I never thought I'd see again. Poured into exactly the same glass as I did 16+ years ago. Label carries the old TAP 05 moniker. Still that iced-tea look, that although understandable for the style, still doesn't greet the eye all that well. This is still a bit oniony, DIPA-like in the back-end, and very weird if you ask me. Unsurprisingly perhaps, I find a lot of the same notes that I recorded below 16 years after the fact. Body is a bit...

Schneider Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock

Dark, dirty brown pour, rather unattractive. Bubbly head forms quickly, but leaves equally quickly. The aroma is all malty alcohol. It's obvious that this is a high alcohol brew, but 12% still seems mighty high. The initial tastes seem "Belgian" to me, almost like a strong dark Belgian, but these fade quickly to give a sugary, rich dry finish. There is certainly a warming sensation on the way down due to the alcohol, and there are some very sweet pineapple and pear based esters in there in...

Additional notes 02/06/21 A relatively rare draft sighting that smooths out a lot of the size of this beer and offers just a delightful, warming experience. It's still as big on draft as you'd expect, but the keg seems to even out some of the sharp pointy parts! Delicious and memorable. Der Braumeister Restaurant, Cleveland. Pictured  08/28/21 Original notes 09/11/04 Abiding memories of this drinking experience are the massive carbonation (bad) and the complex, rich flavors (good). Pours with...
