Episode 104 – Georg Schneider’s Wiesen Edel Weisse

The weizen, or Weissbier variety of beers were originally served at Oktoberfest – when the festival was still in October. A little higher in ABV than the Marzen, they were meant to warm the drinkers. The Wiesen Edel Weisse from Georg Schneider is a Certified Organic weissenbeir. Georg Schneider suffered losses during WWII, but came back to continue the tradition of brewing Weissbier, and are credited with saving the style. This particular wheat beer scores nice and high.

    I haven't had this one, but I will have to look for it. Aventinus is one of my all-time favorites, so I would expect their other beers to be top notch as well.

    Also… I'm assuming you guys meant to say clove in regard to the phenols?

    Hey Steve, thanks for the comment!

    The scent and taste of both coriander and cloves are present in this beer. As with many other Wheat and White variety’s of beer both phenols are represented. In this particular beer it is the coriander that stands out most prominently. Although you can get the aroma of cloves in this brew, it is coupled with that signature coriander scent characteristic of wheat beers.

    So you were right, Steve. I just should have mentioned both cloves and coriander.

    Keep on enjoying the beer!
