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 unfiltered weissbeer from a German webshop at the price of 1,49 Euro for a 500 ml bottle at 0,0%.
A super good looking orange coloured unfiltered beer, almost with a little brown in the shine.
The head is big with a fine top.
The aroma is overly sweet, wheated and with some darkness to it.
Powerful CO2, dark and malted with fresh wheat in the after taste, some hint of slightly bitter green plant in the end.
Overall rating 73 / 100
