REVIEW: Schneider Weisse – Tap 4 Wiesen Edel-Weisse

20140529-175147-64307171.jpgThis organic wheat beer is brewed in the tradition of Georg IV Schneider by Germany’s Schneider Weisse. Its golden and refreshing, showing off what a German wheat beers should be like.

From the brewery:
“A shiny-brass colored organic wheat beer, certified Naturland organic. An aroma of hops and citrus with a spicy note perfectly balances the malty character with the easiness of the hops. Refreshing and full-bodied at the same time.

The recipe for TAP4 Mein Grünes dates back to Georg IV Schneider. This refreshing wheat beer with its hoppy notes is brewed after the Oktoberfest-beer the Schneider family brewed as long as production was in Munich: „Georg Schneider’s Wiesen Edel-Weisse“. It is now brewed as an organic, „Naturland“ certified wheat beer. Outside Europe, we may still sell it under its original name.”

And what did I think?

Appearance: Golden. Good carbonation, clear, with no head to speak of, which is surprising from a wheat beer.

Aroma: Sweet and fruity with a slight malt presence and no hops. Cherry, currant, and clove note highlight the aroma.

Taste: Clean and light with a bit of the carbonation flavour appearing. Very much lager-like and very easy to drink. Some grassiness and clove coming through.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with appropriate high carbonation.

Overall: Easy drinking and refreshing. Balanced nicely with some of the classic wheat beer flavours coming through, but restrained to make it very approachable.

80/100
