Notes/Commercial Description:
Brooklyn version. This brew is the result of the long friendship of Brooklyn brewmaster Garrett Oliver and Schneider brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler. Garrett had always admired the delicate balance of flavors in Schneider Weisse, while Hans-Peter had long enjoyed the effusive hop character of Brooklyn East India Pale Ale and BLAST! Garrett's concept for the collaboration was that each brewmaster would brew essentially the same pale, hoppy weissbock in the other's brewery, but with different hopping to reflect the local hop flavor.

Dry-hopped w/ American Amarillo and Palisade.

I have been hunting down this beer for a while; probably there aren’t many bottles still available.
It produced a big stomp after releasing the cork. Amber golden color with a thick off-white head with apparent carbonation, great retention and leaving some laces.
Wonderful intriguing aroma, subdue notes of banana with honey, cloves, overripe oranges, peaches soaked in rum and mango chutney.
Flavor of wood, Cointreau liquor, subdue banana, caramel malt, pine, wheat, honey, spices and Weiss yeast. Interesting that I also got some floral and herbal hops. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Medium to full body with good carbonation. Alcohol of 8.5% abv is harmonic with the overall beer.
Excellent Weizenbock, bold flavor with great complexity. It would be interesting to compare it to the German version.

Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

A collaboration between two solid brewers that somewhat alters/updates a classic style? I'm in. This stuff pours a cloudy sunrise amber-brass topped by over a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises grass, dry wheat, light clove (I think), and a couple twists of orange. The taste brings in more of the same, with a slightly fresher wheat component and a bit more clove. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, I wasn't the biggest fan of this stuff. It's not really bad, per se, just not my cup o' tea, what with the grassy hops not really fully melding with the mild citrus and wheat. I dunno, something like that...

Pours a cloudy orange with a white bubbly head -- good retention.

Smells of freshly mowed grass with orange and spice backed by a floral bouquet.

Grassy with a bitter herb punch, followed by sweet citrus that flows into the slick malt backbone and is lost in deliciousness. This a big beer with lots of flavor and subtle complexity.

Looks like a Belgian Pale Ale, cloudy orange in color with a bright white head. The head has good retention and a slightly sticky lace.

Very fruity nose, smells like banana bread with lots of spices. Ever so faint scent of bubble gum.

Taste is a little bit fruity banana and biscuity. Pineapple in background. Straw with some alcohol esters in the swallow.

A bit spicy, ever so sweet, mostly cleansing bitter finish, along with some heat from the alcohol.

I'd heard good things about this collaboration, and while the beer is good, it's not world class. The smell is sharp, but the taste is slightly duller. Still a good beer.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with some citrus notes with a heavy side of wheat malt with light residual sugar notes. Taste is a good mix between a solid wheat malt backbone with light residual sugar which are balanced by some pretty dry hoppy notes with light citrus undertones. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Very solid and unique offering. I would definitely like to try again.

A - Pours a clear orange brown with three fingers of craggy white head. Nice retention, but not much lacing.

S - Nice citrus aroma, with a big orange presence. Also quite floral.

T - Nice floral hops, though the hops have likely faded a bit. Held on to this bottle a bit too long. Good wheat malt presence. A bit of spice. Some hop bitterness on the finish. Pretty refreshing tasting beer.

M - Medium mouthfeel that is petty smooth, with a semi-dry bitter finish.

O - Would love to try a fresh bottle to get a bit more hop bitterness, but this is still a very nice brew.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: It poured very cloudy yellow when it settled it was still somewhat hazy in the carbonation. The head was creamy white domed in the middle. The lace was thick and the residue was sticky.

Smell: It was like a citrus fruit bouquet, orange, grapefruit and lemon with floral accents.

Taste: I knew the hops were coming and they still caught me off guard. Great floral hops taste with some bitter grapefruit. Then came weizen traits banana and clove with allot of malt.

Mouthfeel: Some bite with a chewy dry finish.

Overall: Overall complex, but great. It was like an IPA Wiezen Bock. Three styles that are great by themselves or combined

This poured out as a hazy golden yellow color with a fluffy white head on top. The head leaves a nice spotted amount of lacing on the glass with a decent retention. The smell of the beer gives off a soft wheat aroma along with plenty of hops too. The taste of the beer started with the wheat upfront that fades into a pretty strong bitterness that the hops bring to the beer. The mouthfeel is light bodied and smooth. Overall this beer was pretty nice.

Poured from a corked-and-caged bottle. The cork shot out of the bottle on its own after loosening the cage - a first for me.

Dark golden/copper in color with a rocky head. Very hazy.

Aroma is hop-forward, but well-balanced with toasty malt and yeast. Generally floral and honey-sweet in the nose. Alcohol scent is faint.

Hop flavors are prominent but not overwhelming; notes of orange peel, grapefruit, honey and peach dominate. Faint bitterness in the finish - much less than expected.

Almost medium-bodied with tingling carbonation.

I'm extremely impressed with this collaboration, and I'll be on the lookout for the Schneider version.

Great Weizenbier - with an outstanding hop aroma. Opaque amber, medium white head, orange, fruity, banana aromas, some grapefruit . Nicely balanced, with bitter finish...

Worth checking it out, any time,

611th Review on BA
Bottle to Weizen
750ml c/c

Big thanks to my wife for finding this in upstate NY for me on a business trip.

App- A darker yellow with orange radiants and a big puffy head. Great three fingers of head and a decent amount of cling and lace.

Smell- A yeasty balanced hop aroma. A little bit of sour on the nose but I did walk throug a casino before opening. My nose could be off.

Taste- A lot behind this one. Very hoppy, yeasty, a little bitter with a nice wheat backbone. This was very tasty, crisp and refreshing. Hit the spot at midnight in LV when it was still 85 out.

Mouth- Medium bodied and medium/ high carbed. Not much remains but the bitter hops.

Drink- This was a big want of mine for a while. Very glad the wife was nice enough to bring one home. I would love to have another bottle. Also want to find the other version.

This is my second time with this brew, first of this bottling. My sister-in-law shared this 750ml with my wife and I.

Bottle -> Weyerbacher tulip

A - Hazy straw gold, tall big bubble white head, light lacing, 1/4" head retained through the tasting

S - Light creamy lemon citrus, fieldy spices, sharp hop notes

T - Huge sharp hops up front, very light watery citrus in the middle, long bitter finish

M - Thin to medium

O - This is a good beer. However, I prefer the other bottling to this one. I'm fairly certain that one was done in Germany and this here. The German one had a much creamier, almost lemon meringue flavor to it that was much more dessert like. This very is much thinner and hop forward.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

From a 750 mL custom amber champagne bottle with no freshness date. This is a pale weizenbock, brewed with German pilsner malt and wheat, Willamette and Cascade, dry-hopped with Amarillo and Palisades, and fermented and bottle-conditioned with Schneider yeast. Pours a chill-hazed gold, with medium carbonation and two fingers of frothy head that retains well and leaves decent lacing. Very cloudy on the second pour. Pretty much all hops in the nose, with notes of stewed pineapple, citrus, mango, orange, pine resin, green tea and peaches and apricots later. Pretty similar on the palate, with the addition of floral alcohol, moderate bitterness and a dash of spicy/clovey yeast. The wheat and yeast really take a long time to come out, and the lees are very bitter, so be careful there. The body is dry, well-carbonated and warming, with chalky dry yeast in the second pour. This is an interesting brew, and one that is hard to judge as any established style - an American weizenbock perhaps? It is not very German, nor is there that much yeast or wheat, but it is tasty and much better than Schneider's version.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle into Chimay goblet. Poured in low altitude Galway, Ireland.

A: Pours a two finger head, disappointingly thin, of poor retention, and very little cream. Semi transparent yellow colour. More haziness was expected.

Sm: Very floral and estery. Delightful. A medium strength scent. I'm excited to try it.

T: Very floral, but the esters are more limited. Alcohol does punch through, unfortunately. Body is very hoppy. There isn't a clear three act division, though the finish is comprised on lingering body flavour and alcohol. Not a great finish to an otherwise well done beer, throwing off the balance. Built well for the style, although admittedly atypically - nothing wrong with effective innovation. The first two thirds is much more flavourful than the last third. I like it.

Mf: Moderate thickness to support the flavour, but to the detriment of suitability to the style. Delightfully coarse, bringing out the notes of the body. Certainly not light. Wet until towards the finish, where some slight dryness enters in.

Dr: The off-balance and the alcohol are severe limitations for this beer. Clean up the finish and focus the flavour, and it'd be an A.

Tap at Macs Steel Creek.
Lightly cloudy gold pour. Just a ring of white bubbles.

Aroma, caramel, malt some spicey grain.

Taste starts with some malty caramel. Light apple, caramel covered apple and a grassiness. Clove, allspice, banana some nice herbal hops.
Less overbearing banana and clove, which is what usually turns me off to wheats and wheat bocks. This was really enjoyable.

Lighter side of medium. Lively carbonation keeps this from being sticky. Goes down like a regular wheat even though it is 8.5%.

Picked up from Julio's on a whim, pretty darn glad I did.

A - Poured into my Duvel tulip a crystal clear golden hue with a big, rocky over two finger white head that slumped down to become a creamy white blanket atop the gold with heavy side lacing. Really nice looking.

S - Very light aromas here. Getting some of the light spice notes, but not any of the banana that others have stated. I do get plenty of alcohol though.

T - Much like the nose its kinda like a hoppy weize. You've got the nice yeast/spice notes and just the faintest of banana. Some light almost grassy hop notes but again, very light.

M - Really nice carbonation here. Medium carb keeps things very light and crisp, which is shocking considering the ABV. That 8.5% is incredibly well hidden.

O - Pretty good brew here. Really interesting callaboration here. Some super impressive head here kinda wish I had tried this fresh though, think it lost alot of its hop characteristics.

Shared with gwuilliums. Poured from 750ml bottle into tulips.

A: Dark yellow/brass color. Slightly hazy. Excellent head formation and retention. Good carbonation. Some lacing.

S: Wow!! Spicy and woody and hoppy. Has some banana and citrus, maybe. What a complex nose.

T: Even better than the nose. Spicy and fruity and just ever-so-slightly funky. Really complex. There is more bitterness than the nose hints at, so this ends up being a very balanced beer.

M: Medium body, slightly dry finish. Excellent carbonation persists. Very nice.

O: I bought it because it was on sale. I went back and bought two more because it is a fabulous beer!

07 Hopfen-Weisse on tap at the Gate for the Brooklyn evening. Had remembered hearing good things about this beer, so I made it my first stop. An almost clear dark yellow pour with a little bit of haze. Very sexy looking. Smells of sweet wheat, clove, and a bit of background citrus. Really nice. I suppose the banana had faded all out of it, which meant my lady actually got to enjoy it.

Flavor started out with a little bitterness and a burst of bright sweet wheat with a bit of lemon, followed by a wave of clove and a little pine and orange hop flavor. It was really well-integrated, smooth, very easy drinking and enjoyable. Excellent work all around.

I was very excited to try out this collaboration and boy I was pleasantly surprised by my friend who ended up giving me this bottle for my birthday.

I really enjoy Aventinus, which is currently my favorite sipping beer so having enjoyed Brooklyn's various offerings I was excited to try this one out.

The color is a nice semi-solid gold with a nice color to it. The taste was on point and very easy and enjoyable to savor. I have been fortunate to find about five more bottles at all places a local downtown liquor store...who knew? I usually don't see liquor stores carry a wide variety and decent selection of beers in my area but this one definitely did and I pretty much wiped them out of this beer.

Not to be missed!

A: Pours a slightly hazy gold with loads of visible carbonation. The head is white, airy- almost pillow like- that last till the final drop leaving behind great lacing.

S: A nice strong nose of yeast, wheat, hops, spices, tropical fruits, and a hint of booze. There's a bit of hops as well and perhaps slight hint of honey sweetness.

T: The nose is a bit larger then the taste, but still very good. A soft palate of banana, lemon zest, spices (pepper & clove), grains, tropical fruits, & citrus. There is also a mild malt background that hold it all together.

M: Light body with high carbonation.

D: Great beer that easy to drink. Light enough mouthfeel and nice enough flavor makes me wish I bought more then 1 bottle.

I was very excited when I saw this beer. I saw that it was a new Brooklyn, a special one, and when I gave it a closer inspection, my taste buds trembled, my mouth watered, and my stomach growled. Why? Because I've had "hybrid" beers before, beers that mix two distinct styles. The first hybrid I had was from Midnight Sun Brewing Company up in Anchorage, AK, an amazing, outstanding, extraordinary, etc. brewery. Their hybrid was their Obliterator IV, an IPA-Hefeweizen. It was one of the best beers I've ever had. And when I picked up this Hopfen-Weisse, a hoppy-white/wheat beer, I knew it would at least be similar to the Obliterator IV. This was enough of a reason to get it! Anyway, let's get to the review.

I loved pouring this out of the bottle. Since it is partly a weiss beer, I put the bottle up to the light, and sure enough, I saw sediment. YES! I poured out about a 3/4 glass and then twirled the bottle a bit to stir up some of that non-filtered goodness to then fill up the rest of the beer glass. The head bloomed very large and looks very appetizing, being very bubbly yet clings to the glass. Indeed, the head is like a hefeweizen but an IPA too. Very bubbly but frothy enough to retain its form, at least for a bit until the bubbles pop. When you first take in the aroma of the Hopfen-Weisse, it smells like a pale ale. It's hoppy and smells faintly of flowers. On the other hand, the citrus and yeasty/wheaty smells lie tucked underneath the hops. As far as aesthetics, this beer is a clear golden, unless you swirl the sediment like I did that adds particulates.

Now to taste. This is why I like the hybrids (I own a hybrid car :P)! Unlike the smell, where the pale ale came before the hefeweizen, with taste the latter came before the former. It starts out with a strong wheat taste but with subtle underlying bitterness of hops. Lemony-orange citrus tang floats around in there as well. Talk about having complexity in a beer's taste. Wheat, hops, and citrus. One thing I really like about this beer is how the hefeweizen flavor stays throughout while the hop spice-zest stays right along with it. This is a full-flavored beer but isn't heavy. I love the spiciness at the end.

If you're a fan of hybrid beers, complex-tasting beers, hefeweizens and/or pale ales, this is definitely a beer to try. I don't think it's a great beer, but it's certainly extraordinary and something you should certainly pick up if you see it. Good stuff!

Splitting a bottle with my lovely wife while watching the Beatles Anthology...

A - Three fingers worth of big chunky airy audibly fizzy egg shell white colored head... Impressive retention ultimately gives way to a thick fluffy creamy lacing... Medium sized carbonation bubbles race to the top of the glass at varying paces... The color is that of a vibrant medium yellowish gold with a faint orange hue... A mild haze throughout... A bit of lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the session proceeds...

S - Grains... Cereal... Sweet mashed bananas... Mild green apple... Some faint notes of bubble gum... A touch of lemon zest... Some light brown sugars... The lightest of vanilla notes... There's a lot of goodness with each whiff... Loads of complexity are abound...

T - The palette is not quite as complex as the nose, but there is still a lot going on here... The bitterness of European hops are at the forefront... Banana... Bubblegum... Cloves... Loads of bready and grainy malts... A touch of pepper... A touch of lemon zest...

M - Medium bodied... Quite sturdy... Possibly even a bit stiff... A pretty good carbonated bite on the tongue... A bit lush, a bit chalky, and a bit dry all at the same time...

D - A unique beer all the way around... Leaded with character and complexity... Well crafted in every facet... I would highly recommend and seek out again for myself...

25.4oz bottle, Boulevard tulip, bottled on the 259th day of 2009. Thank you to drabmuh for this big want via Secret Santa 2010!

The color is a straight yellow with a bit of haze and depth. Think of all the incremental shades of banana yellow. The head is a towering affair in eggshell with good retention.

The aroma carries a lot of chalky, banana dominant Weizen yeast and light wheat bread. There's a green wood note and one can tell that this was originally highly hopped with American hops. Unfortunately they've mostly gone and only a background note of grapefruit and Meyer lemon zest. Clove goes from nothing to a lot as it warms.

Initially the beer is lightly wheaty with the expected banana esters. Things take a turn away from Weizenbock expectations when a sturdy citric bitterness hits; it's reminiscent of West Coast style. Apricot, green apple, and pear are playful fruity flavors. Once the big American hops have mostly gone, this is apparently a good, fairly standard Weizenbock.

Moderate-high creamy carb in a moderate body. It's not clean and the flavors linger on.

I'd like to try this beer fresh to really see its difference from standard Weizenbocks. As it is, hints of citrus and a moderate bitterness work passably well with a solid base beer. I like it but wish I'd opened this with my brother.
