Notes/Commercial Description:
Schneider 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/ Hallertauer Saphir.

Pours a huge honkin 3 finger head that takes up 50% of the glass, fades at a med pace with nice lacing all over, a fairly hazy orange wheat colored beer with stream of bubbles rising up the center. 4.25

Nose brings mostly typical hefe/bock aromas, big wheat, lots of toasted creamy wheat, with a very faint biscuity note, as well as the typical banana and coriander like spices, and some citrus, faint orange rind, lemongrass, and a creamy orange drink. There are also some sweet candy like aromas, little candied orange, with flashes of grassy floral hint citrus like hops. 4.25

Taste brings wheat again, but sweet candy caramelized wheat out front, much sweeter than I expected, with big creamy toasted wheat flavors out front with the candy, a little syrupy as well, and mild biscuity toffee caramel flavor. Then into the hefe like, with mild caramlized banana, hint of phenolic spices, plenty of esters with the banana and a little fruity flavor, with mild citrus orange zest, much more mild on the citrus. Then hops kick in, big spicy hops, with a mild orange rind and some grassy floral flavors. Finish is sticky and still semi sweet, more candy lingering, caramel, toffee, etc, and big time booze kicks in with mild phenols again, a faint yeasty flavor, and more grainy creamy wheat. 3.75

Mouth is med to fuller bod, creamy and sticky syrupy, lots of carb, some warming booze mostly at the end. 4

Overall not bad, a big time beer that I wasn't really expecting from a brewery like this, nice wheat, bit too booze forward and way too sweet candy like for my taste, but fits the style. Hops are a bit too muted up front, then too spicy and strong on the back end, like they didn't blend in too well. Enjoyable but can't drink a lot of it. 4

Pours a milky orange from the bottle. Just a bit of an off-white head that dissipates rapidly, leaving a bit of lacing. The nose screams fruit, particularly banana and berries, along with citrus and malt. As you would expect, the fruit hits your tongue first. Bananas, pineapple, mango and some spice. The alcohol becomes more pronounced as it warms. There's a nice sweetness to this one. Medium, chewy mouth. I'm not a huge fan of wheats or dopplebocks, but this is really, really good. A very nice collaboration.

500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Cloudy orange to amber with foamy, 3cm white head that held steady until I took a sip.

Strong banana & spice with faint alcohol. Background citrus & mango, orange & light hops too.. Fruity & fresh with good balance, some yeast & cloves. Nice stuff.

Banana & cloves to start with faint alcohol. Citrus, mango & pineapple with background hops & grassy flavours feature, as does some bubblegum.

Creamy with a smooth feel & medium body helped down with moderate carbonation. The beers alcohol content was noticeable but the fruits in the taste helped mask at least some of it.

A good beer and one that benefited from the extra hops in both the taste and smell. Whilst it was a pleasant beer I think I'd be put off buying it all that often based on the fact that it is a lot stronger and harder to get a hold of that several other German wheat beer.
