Schneider Weisse Original (Tap 7) (33 of 1001)

Rating: 3.5

Again a beer I didn’t really know much about & only decided to go for because it was one of the few international beers in my local shop i had yet to try, well that & it is a wheat beer. Once home it was a pleasant surprise to discover that the beer was also in the 1001 Beers list & as such will be the 32nd beer from the book I will have reviewed. As previously, I am expecting good things from this beer given that it is a hefeweizen as well as the fact it will be my seventh Germany beer, hopefully it’ll be one of the better ones. Described as golden amber in colour with the usual hefeweizen flavours of banana, cloves & some vanilla too, something tells me I’ll enjoy this one.

Appearance (4/5): A cloudy light amber colour that almost borders on an orange colour.Like most good hefeweizens it has a large, fluffy white head that has excellent retention. It looks excellent.
Aroma (7/10): Your usual German wheat beer smell here with a nice coriander & clove smell with a hint of citrus on the nose. Not as strong as some hefeweizens but quiet pleasant.
Taste (7/10): Start similar to the aroma with coriander and clove upfront along with hints of citrus. It has a nice blend of spices in there too.
Palate (3/5): Very smooth and medium bodied, going down rather well as expected. The only slight down side is that the carbonation is perhaps a little high.

Overall (14/20): Very nice overall although there is definitely much nicer, cheaper hefeweizens out there to be had. I enjoyed this one but not overly & probably wouldn’t buy it again, simply because I prefer other beers in this style a little more.

    Any thoughts on the new TAPX Nelson Sauvin by Schneider?

      I’ve had a look & something tells me I would be a fan of the beer, sadly I don’t hold out much hope of me finding a bottle in the UK without some serious effort. How about you?
