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 weissbier in a local supermarket in Odense, Denmark at the price of 3,5 Euro for a 500ml bottle at 5,4%.
A lovely dark orange to light brown colour of unfiltered beer fills the glass.
Large white head that settles down to a thin layer.
Delicious sweet fruit in the aroma.
Good CO2 that feels bubbly, fresh fruit with a sweetness over it and a short after taste.
Overall rating 83 / 100
