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.

4/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Single bottle (looks like a 2009 date, but I can't tell) poured into a Hefeweizen glass.

Appearance: Poured slowly without disturbing the sediment you get an amber yellow beer with a large big cell foam (about 1/3") on top. Pouring in the rest of the sediment gives you the same color but now cloudy and maybe a hint more orange. Lots of bubbles moving up through the glass.

Smell: Grapes, grapefruit (maybe an orange citrus) are the strong smells here. Yeast is faint. Not bad, but not what I was expecting.

Taste: To some extent is really is a weizenbock with a lot of hops to it. The alcohol is there just a tiny hint at the end to remind you that you're drinking a stronger beer, but up front is the hops and wheat beer flavors. For the fruit one gets with a wheat beer I'm definitely getting grapes, but the citrusy hops are there to along with a hint of sweetness. Again, my eyes are saying hefeweizen but my tastebuds are saying something else. Good...but hard for me to decide if this a wow or just a "Mmmm good, glad I tried it".

Mouthfeel: Almost no carbonation on the tongue despite the bubbling in the glass. There is a chewy nature to the drink, but up front only. As it passes the tongue it's pleasantly coating.

Drinkability. Definitely a beer to experience and sip, but I can't see myself trying it again. Hopefully I can find the Brooklyn version of this to compare to out of curiosity, but I'll stick to traditional weizenbocks and hefeweizens which it appears I like better.

4.15/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

One of my favorite new beers, I could possibly even consider this one for a session...a short one obviously.

A: very cloudy light orangish color with big large head, little lacing

S: bananas, faint sour apples, cloves and spices, hops

T: very much of the banana and caramel in the background with some hoppy spiciness up front.

M: light with more than avg carbonation

D: very very good beer that I can drink in large quantities, taste never gets old

Serving type: on-tap

4.24/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Super cloudy, light amber in color, with a decent (but not fantastic) 1.5-finger head of off-white foam. Lacing is good, pretty typical for a Hefe.

S: A fantastic array of aromas! Hops aromas are strong, with fruity notes (pineapple and grapefruit) first and foremost in the nose. Deeper sniffs bring out the wheat beer notes that are so familiar in a Hefeweizen: sweet, malted grain; esters reminiscent of banana; spicy pepper with a touch of cloves.

T: Sweet grain is the initial flavor, followed by fruity pineapple and faint grapefruit flavors. Spicy notes are buried. The finish is more tart than bitter, especially for a beer with "hops" in the name.

M: Moist, nicely carbonated, with a moderately dry finish. The ABV is well-hidden.

O: A little too much sweet malt, especially when compared with what I expected based on the aromas. It's a solid concept, but to my taste a little more hops balance would have made it even better; the hops added fruitiness, but not much bitterness (I'm not saying they should hop it up to DIPA levels, just a bit more). Still, it's an enjoyable foray into a hybrid style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Foamy and large head, very nice retention and lacing. Super cloudy with year everywhere. It is unfiltered apple cider in color and opacity.

Nose: Oily hops, floral, mango, yeast. A touch of cloves and aspirin.

Taste: Pepper, clove, and crushed aspirin. Hops and banana. It has great mouthfeel and is very well balanced.

Notes: This is very good!
