An original Weissbier, Schneider Weisse comes from a Bavarian brewery company founded in 1872 by Georg Schneider I and his son of the same name, after they acquired the Weisses Brauhaus in Munich; the oldest wheat beer brewery in the city.
The Original version from this brewery is amber-mahogany in color, this beer has a laced head that leaves traces on the glass. It is subtly fruity with a typical top-fermented smell, and an aroma of cloves nutmeg and apple. The taste is fresh, clean, full-bodied, and well-balanced. It finishes with a light, delicate taste of bitters leaving behind a slight sour impression.
From Scheider Weisse:
The wheat comes from the upper Altmühltal, lower Bavaria, and Upper Palatinate regions. The malting barley is grown in the Kelheim and Riedenburg areas. Hallertau hops are used to give the beers their bittering and aromatic properties.
And of note, the Schneider's have been at it for some time, now on it's 7th generation of brewers, and is still family run:
