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 a dark golden haze, with orange, copper, and yellow highlights. Gorgeous off white head, one that leaves giant lacing.

Smell is intense. Just, brilliant. Best I've ever smelled. Small mounts of banana, citrus, clove, nutmeg, and delicious hallertau, saaz, and other noble hops. Incredible.

The taste follows, with a huge malt backbone. Perfectly delicious wheat, with great esters, and hops that give great floral bite in perfect unison.

This beer deserves higher praise. This is the future of beer.

HA this is supposedly the same as the old Schneider-Brooklyner but I must say more sueffig - sampled in the Weisse Braeuhaius itself!

The taste look and smell are AMAZING - Weizenbock meets IPA - the beer that s got it ALL!!!!

It combines the depth and complexity of a Weizenbock with the freshness and spiceyness of a very good IPA - this is fucking outstanding!!!

OMG! this might be the greatest beer I have ever had!... It is the best of both worlds... the centurys of German knowledge in brewing ...combined with the hop craze on this side of the pond... equals what I would say is a hybrid between an American IPA and a german hefe- weisse!... I can't believe I have never heard of or read any posts on this brew... It is only a matter of time before everyone gets hip to this... and it will be untouchable...

Went to this brewery and had it in their beer garden and it was the most interesting beer ive ever had. The citrus aroma blending with the banana and clove yeast by-products produces and absolutely splendid beer. Granted I had this right from the brewery and its always the best there, I also had it in the U.S. and it was almost as good. Still had all the notes that I remembered.

Pours pretty much like any other hefeweizen/weizenbock, but the head dissipates too quickly. The body is hazy as typical, and makes for an orangish caramel color.

The aroma is unmistakably hop dominant. I smell pine, orange (not rind, but actual orange), and a spicy grassy finish in the fragrance.

I was expecting a totally sour mouth puckering hop bomb, but this is very awesome. Hopfenweisse is so well balanced, I get the wheaty banana hint right up front, then goes into an orangish citrus kick, and finishes with a bubble gum sweetness.

This is refreshing upfront and wetting to the palate, but the ABV in the end is slightly detectable. This is the best beer I've had in a long time.
