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!!!
