Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: John_M on 07-16-2007

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.

Very different. I liked the hop flavor, but to me it tasted like someone took and IPA and mixed it into an unfiltered wheat beer. It was good but nothing that really blew my mind.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, dried apricot color, with a bit of light sneaking through around the edges of the glass. Has a three-finger head which dissipates into a half-finger of foam. It also has some sparkling, tight lacing. Very nice looking beer.

Aroma: No need to bury your nose into this one. It's got a pungent aroma that fills the room upon opening. Tropical fruit, apricot, clove, and a bit of citrus on the nose.

Taste: Tropical fruit and apricot at first, followed by a bitter, citrusy finish. At 8.2% ABV, the alcohol bites through, especially as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Weizen-smooth with a slight prickle. Unfortunately the bitter, alcoholic finish throws off the balance. It's actually a bit of a chore to finish the whole glass.

Overall: There are certainly things to like about this beer, but the lack of balance put me off. I'll definitely opt for the Aventinus over this one in the future.

A very tasty combination of flavors is at work in this beer. The collaboration style works for me - the nose and appearance of a Hefeweizen, combined with IPA elements, is both interesting And satisfying. It is hard to describe, but somehow I like it.

Typical hefewiezen appearance. Very cloudy. Huge head. Amber appearance. A bit darker than a standard hefe but still more golden than brown. High carbonation just about visible through the murkiness.

Yeasty aroma. Hints of candied fruit and a little bit mild of citrus hops.

Taste is full bodied. Very high in yeast and bread flavours with candied fruit notes. Nice hop finish adds an interesting twist to the weiss beer style. Similar to a belgian tripel in taste and in abv. Perhaps a Belgian IPA would be a fair comparison. Not hoppy like an American IPA but definitely carrying a hop kick in the midst of all the yeast and clove tatses..

Overall, a great beer with a full bodied and complex flavour. Difficult to categorise but definitely a pleasure to drink.

83/100

Pale golden body with mild haze and scattered sediment. Aromas of fruity esters, orange zest, wheat, clove, subtle spice, grass, floral hops. Alcohol heat is a little too prevalent, coming in mid-palate. Medium to thick body with a syrupy, resinous hop bill. The nose is better than the flavor. Decent.

Poured all of the yeast and whatever sediment in the bottle after swirling the bottle, as done traditionally for a Hefeweizen.
L: murky/dirty rown, with a lingering whipped up head
S: tangerine orange (sweet), banana, cloves, tropical fruit
T: liquered strawberry sweetness upfront, followed by tangerine bitterness, vanilla, alcohol sweetness, some traditional hop bitterness. the flavor is a bit of a roller coaster ride. seem a bit overwhelming... definitely leaning towards hop flavor.
F: a bit of juicy sweet mess. i don't think it's malt driven. hop flavor/yeast by product.
O: a noisy tasting experience. there seem to be a lot going on in this beer, and may not necessarily be the best thing.
