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.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance- The beer pours a golden amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is fruity and bold. The heaviest aroma is that of a more citrus nature, being heaviest of orange and tangerine, but also having notes of grapefruit hop and a bit of lemon. Mixed with the citrus, are other fruit aromas of banana as well as some apple and pear. There is a slight yeasty and bready aroma with some smells of spice. A candy like sugar aroma is also present there as well producing an overall aroma that reminds me of a fruit roll-up. Quite a delicious smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheaty and citrus sweet flavor with strong flavors of orange. Other fruit flavors of banana and apple come to the tongue with more breadiness coming along as well. Toward the middle and the end, the yeast and spice that was detected in the nose also come to the tongue. More toward the end some of the sweeter flavors begin to fade however and a somewhat funky and hay like flavor come to the tongue with an intensification of the yeast as well as some bitter grapefruit joining along. In the end a slightly barnyard, but heavily citrus and wheaty flavor is left onto linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average to a little thinner for a brew of 8.2 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the slightly above average side. The lower body and higher carbonation are quite appropriate for the wheaty, citrus and funky flavors of the brew and make it quite a drinkable and enjoyable feel overall.

Overall - A rather nice brew that drinks much easier then it should (in light of its 8.2 % abv and more saision like funky flavor)s. It is a rather good drinker and one to try if you get a chance.

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.

Off roughly week old memories

A: A hazy orange color. Sediment is easily visible and the beer almost took on a grey appearance once I poured the sediment into the second halfpint I was drinking. Great head and retention.

S: Ester and phenol compounds usually associated with weissbiers. Banana, a touch of clove. Bready malty smell as well. A slight hint of booziness. Noble hops come through as well.

T: The esters and phenols seem to be less present, perhaps this was the brewers trying to keep the hop flavors from clashing? Spicy hops. Not overdone but enough to let you know they're there and definitely more than a traditional weizenbock. Bready malts, possibly and most likely a bit of munich. A bit of that alcohol as well. Interesting as multiple diverse elements come into play without clashing too much.

M: Nice body not overly thick or syrupy. Carbonation is higher but that's good for the style and makes the beer seem less cloying.

O: An interesting beer. Not something I would drink all the time or would really look out for but it was interesting. I don't really think it ranks as high as everyone say's it does but one can tell it is definitely a product that was well invested in and brewed integrity.
