Just like you, but different
Schneider Weisse Original (TAP7). It’s a Friday and this is the 3rd of the 3 that I had to drink, the others have been entertaining enough, and this hopefully is another step up.
This is a 500ml 5.4% ABV beer and it has 14 IBU things, this is about 162 calories a serve size, and is 2.1 standard drink units.
With its amber-mahogany colouring and streaked with fine top-fermented yeast, this beer has a fine, persistent head that adheres well to the glass. It is pleasantly fruity with a typical top-
fermented smell, an aroma of clove and nutmeg apple tantalises the nose. On the tongue it is fresh, clean, full-bodied, harmonious and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a sour impression.
Pours absolutely incredibly. The bubbles are all finely defined and fall in row one by one to form a huge persisting head. A gorgeous colour, tawny spring sunset. The texture is nice and aroma is a full bouquet. Flavours of well pronounced wheat, fully robust, so tasty. This is an excellent beer.
So, What could possibly go wrong?
A lovely pour of a chestnut brown beer that has a lovely but small white head and wonderful fruity aroma to it.
But it’s not a beer with a lot of body about it, and you’d err towards it being thin and a bit listless really.
This is top fermented beer, and then in my mind reminds me of the Belgium style beer I enjoy so much that binary ester thing going on, but this isn’t that, it’s a wheat beer, so it might be that.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 of its things from the thing. I’m trying to like it more than I think I can. it’s a pleasant enough beer but it is also not a beer that crackles and sparkles. I’d have this in the fridge if it was more accessible and priced right is the nicest thing I can say, nothing wrong with the beer, it’s just a bit everyman.
The double dip review
Music for this: “ Cassettes on Tape ” and ” Anywhere” on Spotify
Cassettes on Tape Cassettes on Tape is heavily influenced by college radio and the 80s and 90s U.K. indie scene–from The Smiths to My Bloody Valentine.
Depending on the style can range from pale and light body to dark brown with full body. Wheat beer is characterized by its cloudy appearance and its banana and sometimes vanilla aftertaste
