A mediocre Hefeweizen, certainly not one of my favorites. I have to say, I'm kind of unimpressed with beers that come in flip-top bottles such as this one. It's a neat-looking novelty, but so far, all the beers that use that bottle type are in desperate need of a novelty to sell their product. Schwelmer Hefe is no exception. It wasn't among the worst, but it was so lacking in the required wheat lemon flavor that it's mid-range only. Plus, it had a huge clump of sediment in it, much bigger then normal, indicating an infection. It wasn't bad, it didn't poison me, I was just underwhelmed.
