Brewer Description: (from tag on bottle) Passion of love. “Marie’s Rendezvous” – a tempting golden honey enjoyment of wheat beer with exceptional intensity and opulence. Tap X Marie’s Rendezvous is dedicated to our ancestor Anna-Marie Schneider, whose encounter and her deep love to George I. was the start of our six generations of wheat beer passion. Full-bodied, with soft sweetness, complex fruitiness, fine peppery flavour and courageous strength. A true feast for the senses with a refreshing dry finish! Simply fantastic liaison with a festive roast, light mousse with fresh fruits or aromatic apple fritters with vanilla ice cream. Be careful – it could be LOVE!

Intro: A 750ml bottle with a best before date of 15th January 2018. Poured into a Riedel weizen glass.
Appearance: A clear copper amber colour with a one finger light beige head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some lacing.
Aroma: Freshly crushed apple juice, red grapes, plum and brown sugar with light caramel in the background.
Taste: Sweet fruitiness, plum, prune, raisin, grape and apple. Honey and caramel sweetness and a touch of peppery spice come through on the finish along with a hint of boozy alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: I’m a big fan of Schneider, but this one just didn’t work out for me. Too much sweetness, the spice and the booziness just clashed and made it hard for me to finish.
