Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

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.
