This hefe-weizen comes from the G. Schneider & Sohn brewery in Kelheim, Bavaria, Germany. According to the bottle it is Bavaria's oldest Weizen brewery. It is bottle fermented, unpasteurized and unfiltered. Pours a light, slightly cloudy brown with champagne like carbonation.
It has an aroma of bananas, yeast. sweet caramel, fruit and root beer. It has a light taste of roasted malt, a lot of light, sweet fruit and a hint of root beer on the finish, with an extremely carbonated and crisp mouthfeel. I don't like a lot of hefe-weizens because the yeast and old banana predominate to my palate and I find them disagreeable in that combination. This is like hefe-weizen root beer and quite intriguing. I also like the champagne like carbonation.
