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.
I bought this beer in a local beer shop in Berlin, Germany at the price of 1,8 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 8,2%.
A orange coloured unfiltered beer, sediment can be present as large pieces floating around.
The head is big and have a yellow hint to it in the colour, the head stays.
The aroma have notes of the hops, bitter fruit and a fresh feeling to it.
Low CO2, sweet taste, bitter fruit, hides its very high alcohol percent really well, but it can be too much, the after taste lasts long.
Overall rating 77 / 100
