Schneider Weisse Hopfen Weisse

Schneider Weisse is a well established German brewery that specializes in wheat beers. It lays claim to being the oldest wheat beer brewery in Bavaria.  Generations of Schneiders have been brewing wheat beer and now the brewery produces basically as many different beers as there have been Schneiders.  The beers include the Original, the Blonde and the Hopfen Weisse.

The Hopfen Weisse pours a nice golden color with a foamy head.  I noticed pouring the beer that there was quite a bit of yeast that went from the bottle into the glass.  The beer has a slight aroma of banana.  There is a lot more banana in the taste, along with a little clove, although both are somewhat outmatched by the alcohol.  The beer has an ABV of 8.2%.

Overall, this is a good beer, although not one of my favorites.  It sells for $3.99 a bottle and is available at many stores like Whole Foods and Rodmans.
