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.

4.05/5  rDev -0.7%

Appearance: Hazy deep orange, with a small, creamy white head, which slowly fades to patches of scattered foam. Lacing resembling an alien text adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Grassy hops are rather pronounced, along with earthy yeast notes, bread aromas, bananas, cloves, and alcohol.

Taste: Opens with a wave of grassy and citric hops. Beneath this, there is a solid wheat malt presence that carries throughout. Cloves and bananas soon present, although they are a bit restrained. What is notable in its absence is alcohol. The high ABV (8.2%) is very subtle, presenting itself more as a warming sensation, than in the taste. Late in the taste, there is a flourish of sweetness, and a mild, lingering herbal bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, full, graceful.

Drinkability/notes: A remarkable beer, perhaps it should be called "Weizenbock 2.0". Simply excellent.

Presentation: Packaged in a 500 ml (16.9 ounce) brown glass bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.
