Schneider Weisee Meine Hopfenweiss Manufacturer: Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn ABV: 8.2%
Pours cloudy straw with two fingers of rocky off-white head, good retention and lacing. Nose is banana, cloves, yeast, oranges, mild resin. Taste is moderate sweet, moderate bitter. Medium bodied, moderate sustained carbonation and a mild bitter finish. An interesting wheat beer, with lots of characteristic banana and cloves, underpinned by citrus and mild piney resin. The stronger flavours work well to support the higher ABV and prevent it from being intrusive.
