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 6,2%.
Beautiful orange colour and very coarse haziness.
Small head that is gone in a short moment.
Fresh and hoppy aroma with a sweet fruit to it.
Medium CO2, flowery like a spring field in peak, sweet fruit and some slight bitter hops in the after taste. Organic beer which is a plus but it is also in the sharp end of the flower taste scale.
Overall rating 79 / 100
