Undoubtedly this is well done. Porter characteristics of dark and roasted malts as well as a fuller body are there. Fruity esters, a wheat acidity and the fluffy head give a typical wheat character. Therefore, mission accomplished for the brew master. However, I do not think that the two styles result in a great (harmonious) beer. Some extra points for the craftsmanship though.

2014 bottle from the lcbo. Poured a very frothy creamy tan head, great retention and lacing, over a dark brown, near black body.

S - spicy and estery, very ripe banana, with lemon drops, wheaty creamy notes, custard, with a toasty malty character. Very enticing with its combination of aromas melded together.

T - roast malt notes, coffee, toasty wheat, custardy creamy notes, robust banana notes, lemon meringue, earthy spice notes, cardamon maybe, with dry hop notes that come in also. Banana notes, on dark rye toast, some cinnamon. A subtle sweetness matched with a decent bitterness, deliciously satisfying and the combination I find to be quite interesting and thought-provoking.

M- creamy, rich, with a strong wheat undertone, moderate carbonation. Easily sessionable while also being quite well balanced.

Impressive beer, that is for sure, to be able to skirt tradition and tiptoe a fence line basically. It doesn't really fall cleanly into either camp but is in itself something quite special, to be able to take the influence of combining a Weizenbock and Porter and marry them so cleanly I believe speaks to the talent that crafted this. Drinks quite easily for the strength and could be a session porter, but it holds also the strength and character of the weizenbock. Very solid and I would definitely try to grab this again.

A: Dark deer skin brown with a cm amber hue on the edge when held to the light. Topped with 4 fingers of cappuccino beige head with fair retention.


S: Toffee, candy, fruity, light smokiness, caramel, toasted notes.


T: Brandy, toffee, toasted porter like notes, a hint of tar, lightly sweet with a sour fruit note like an orange lollipop, light coffee. Oh its complex and great.


M: Medium almost borderline syrupy body but smoothed out with fine powdery carbonation. Smooth finish, an almost coffee like coating left on the tongue.


O: Found this on in Kunming, China at a hip little bar on a back street. Amazing brew. I understand the name now after trying it, a cross between a porter and weizen in my opinion. My goodness. Find one, though its retired, and try it!

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

The colour is brown (70 EBC), the liquid is clear. The four finger head is pale beige and compact; it sinks slowly leaving thick lacing on the glass.

The smell is smooth with wheat sourness and some deeply roasted notes. It is rather sweet. Hints of delicatessen, plums, biscuits and cloves.

The taste is very smooth with distinct wheat flavours, roasted nutty malts, chocolate and raisins. Medium to full body. The aftertaste got some metallic bitterness, thick chocolate and a touch of cloves. The finish is smooth and somewhat sweet.

The carbonation is strong, but the large bubbles are very short-lived. The liquid is thick.

Very smooth, very porter, less hefeweissen. Not bad at all.

Schneider Weisse Tap X Meine Porter Weisse
$9 for a ,5l glass on tap @ Brauhaus Schmitz, Philadelphia, PA 05/31/2014

Notes: Deep mahogany brown body not unlike a porter. Full head of frothy tan foam not unlike a hefeweizen. Very good head retention and lacing. The aroma expresses bittersweet chocolate, roastiness, clove, dark fruit, and a hint of smokiness (that's probably a phenol coming from the yeast). The flavor follows suit and it's like a porter that's had dark fruits (plum, red grape, raisin) and cloves soaking in it. The chocolatey dark malts work extremely well with the darker fruit notes and clove, just as they do in so many dark Belgian ales, except that this is wizen-yeast based, and as such there's also some lower-level banana notes. Vanilla steps in as well, and combines with dark coffee to bring it back to the 'porter' side. At the very least it's interesting. Enjoyable.

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Moderate hand. Dated 2014.

A: Dark brown body that appears opaque in the glass. 1.5 finger of dense, creamy tan head. Good retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Lightly roasted malt with notes of almonds, nuts, raisin. Accompanied by lesser wheat notes, banana, tropical fruit. Light cacao, coffee. Molasses. Faint noble-type hops.

T: Semi-sweet wheat and toasty malts kick off. Turns a tad tart before a gentle hop presence closes things out fairly dry. Lingering tang and nutty malt notes in the aftertaste. Alcohol presence is light.

M: Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Lightly creamy in texture. Smooth.

O: Very nice brew. Well integrated roasted/porter-type malt and wheat-fueled fruit. Complex and satisfying.

Prost!

More weisen than porter. Good taste of banana ans roasted malt. Aromas of lemon and chocolate. Smooth and medium roundness. Weird mix but well-done!

A: Pours an opaque very dark deep mahogany in color with light amounts of gentle carbonation rising very slowly along the edges of the glass and some very faint cola brown highlights. The beer has a three finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: The smell of this beer reminds me of fresh baked gingerbread - a combination of bready malts, chocolate malts, and dark wheat malts with a lighter aroma of banana/clove from the yeast and just a hint of molasses/brown sugar.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of bready, chocolate, and dark wheat malts with just a hint of molasses/brown sugar sweetness. There is a light to moderate flavor of banana and clove from the yeast towards the finish and a hint of dark chocolate bitterness which lingers slightly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: This is a very interesting mixture of styles and one that I found a decent article on the internet explaining the historical origins - reminds me of a porter blended with a dunkelweizen. Nice complexities of flavor and aroma and very enjoyable. Easy to drink with well hidden alcohol.
