Rebrewed for May 2017 release. Brewed with rare Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand this bottle fermented wheat beer reminds of an expressive, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc. An exotic flowery nose is balanced by malty spiciness, lightly sour fruitness and a fine bitter finish. Pairs very well with pickled vegetables, Parma ham, pasta, creamy ripe cheese and fruity desserts. Enjoy this refreshing special brew!
Schneider Weisse is a family owned Bavarian brewery located in Kelheim in the heart of Bavaria.
Brewing great wheat beer was our passion long before its value and its contribution to the Bavarian "savoir vivre" were commonly acknowledged. Since Georg I. Schneider obtained the right to brew wheat beer in 1872 (the first commoner to be granted this privilege), we have been constantly creating new wheat beer specialities, at times against all odds and conventions, independent of trends and with enduring courage. The knowledge and experience gained over generations is nearly unrivaled in Bavaria, Germany and the world.
Wheat beer is a fascinating universe of possibilities, of combining ingredients, flavours, aromas, colours and intensities. That's why we not only appreciate all the different types of Schneider wheat beer we offer today, but also look ahead with excitement, to all the new, exceptional treats we will generate from the wheat beer universe tomorrow … for your very special pleasure.
Good beer is born on the land: we purchases our ingredients nearly exclusively from the region of the "Hallertau", the uplands of the Franconian "Jura" and the area of the "Straubinger Gäuboden" close to Munich – with all the very best soils right on our doorstep. For generations the farmes cultivating these stretches of land have been masters in producing best brewing ingredients. And for generations they have been on friendly terms with our family – great relationships based on trust. This way every Schneider Weisse wheat beer is a product of our respect for experience and tradition ... and furthermore a unique expression of our provenance.
