Georg I Schneider was the creator of the Schneider Weisse Original recipe, which is still used today. Two-hundred years ago, wheat beer could only be brewed by the Bavarian royal family in their breweries. In 1872, King Ludwig II discontinued brewing wheat beer due to a steady decline in sales.
Georg I Schneider was sold the exclusive right to brew wheat beer. Today, Georg VI Schneider is running the brewery in Kelheim, which the family acquired in 1927 and has remained the Schneider Weisse brewery to this day. It is the oldest wheat beer brewery in Bavaria. Wheat beer has been brewed there without interruption since its founding in the year 1607.
The unfiltered yellow beer fills the glass with a orange or even with red tones, but still it stay mostly with a dull yellow colour. There can be some heavy sediment that flows around in the beer.
The head starts out big and fades slowly, rough in the bottom and fine on the top, perfect!
The aroma gives off a balanced fruit and just gives a hint, not a dominating aroma.
Good fruit in the taste and with a suitable finish, fades slowly. With a little luck you will have the lovely fruit taste going through drinking the beer, between the sips. CO2 is bubbly and suits it well.
