Review of Schnieder Weisse Tap 4 Wiesen Edel-Weisse

21 Nov

Hello everyone.  For today’s craft beer review I’m going to be trying the Schnieder Weisse Tap 4 Wiesen Edel-Weisse brewed by the Private Weissbeirbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH brewery located in Altstadt Kelheim, Germany.

I haven’t had too many beer from Scnieder Weisse, but the one’s that I’ve tried have been solid to the core, so I’m expecting nothing less from this brew.

I checked on the website,, and found this short, but informative bit of info about this brew.

Exclusively brewed in reminiscence of Georg Schneiders privilege of being part of the world famous Munich Octoberfest until 1942 when his renowned “Weisse Brauhaus im Tal, Munich” was destroyed. Enjoy and celebrate!

Let’s have a sip, shall we?


This beer came in a 16.9 oz. bottle and it had an ABV of 6.2%.

It poured a very hazy, golden/honey color with a bright white, fluffy, soft, soapy and somewhat rocky head.  It was sized extremely well and the retention time was more than solid.  The lacing didn’t look too bad either. This appeared to be a typical wheat beer in the glass.  Very enticing and inviting.

The nose was very bready and yeasty.  Hints of overripe banana.  Strong aspects of clove too.  It had almost a sorghum type of aroma as well.  Interesting to say the least.  I can’t say that I’ve ever experienced that in a wheat beer.  It wasn’t off putting at all…. just different and unique for sure.

The taste was a bit more typical of a Weisse beer I thought.  More of the bread and yeast with sturdy tones of the spicy clove while the pleasant fruitiness of the banana coincided with a stable and commonplace accent of grain.  A nice and sound flavor with this one.

The mouthfeel was medium bodied.  Smooth, but crisp and airy.  It was somewhat dry, yet not too dry to be refreshing and thirst quenching.  An ok amount of flavor was left behind also.  Just enough to keep me interested and wanting to take another gulp.

Overall, I found this to be an alright beer.  It was a very easy drink and would obviously be great for the Spring and Summertime weather.  It’s definitely worth a try if you favor this style.  It has all of the appropriate components and it’s pronounced enough to keep a person interested for the entire session.  I’ll probably be on the lookout for it next year if they produce it again.  Have you guys ever tried the Schnieder Weisse Tap 4 Wiesen Edel-Weisse?  If so, what did you think of it?  Did you like it?  Feel free to leave your opinion in the comments.  I really enjoy the interaction.

Thanks for reading everyone.  I really appreciate it.

Until next time.  Cheers.
