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 into a weizen from a chilled bottle, 10/20/2014

A = Hazy as hell! This beer is completely opaque, coppery yellow, with tons of yeast and sediment in the suspension. One finger head, thick lacing.

S = citrusy hops, bitter oranges, wheat, a hint of booze, not getting any of the typical German wheat aromas

T = very heavy on the orange flavor, almost like straight orange juice, tangy and crisp. Alcohol is present, and solvent flavors noticeable on the finish. Sad to see no banana or bready flavors come to the party. If they are there, they are overshadowed by the heavy citrus flavor and bitterness.

M = Medium bodied, lacks the creamy mouthfeel I'd normally expect from the hefes and weizenbocks.

O = An interesting take on a weizenbock, but lacking balance in all areas of the style.

As close to the perfect beer as I have had. High alcohol, can't tell it's even there until over half of the beer is finished. So fruity in smell and taste. Full body, nice wet finish. The hops are passingly noted, but the real flavor is the wheat + fruit (orange, plum, pear notes). Leaves a lot of lingering flavor and texture on the tongue. I recommend this one to people who don't venture beyond the big names.

Have been drinking this since the white label, and I went to pick some up at my local Spec's, but only this new gold label was there. I passed on it twice because I didn't bother to look up the label change or if it was a new beer. The old one has white, green, and blue, with "Tap 5" printed on it. This new label threw me off, but it's still the same Hopfen Weisse.

Hazy yellow colour, with sediments. Great white head with a lot of retention. Aromas is mostly banana, cloves and mango, but there are many subtle other things: spices, pine. Creamy palate and very noticeable alcohol, like brandy. Taste of banana, mango, cloves, fruits, spices. Easily, the best german wheat I've tasted to this day.
