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.

Pours a milky orange from the bottle. Just a bit of an off-white head that dissipates rapidly, leaving a bit of lacing. The nose screams fruit, particularly banana and berries, along with citrus and malt. As you would expect, the fruit hits your tongue first. Bananas, pineapple, mango and some spice. The alcohol becomes more pronounced as it warms. There's a nice sweetness to this one. Medium, chewy mouth. I'm not a huge fan of wheats or dopplebocks, but this is really, really good. A very nice collaboration.

500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£3.40):
Cloudy orange to amber with foamy, 3cm white head that held steady until I took a sip.

Strong banana & spice with faint alcohol. Background citrus & mango, orange & light hops too.. Fruity & fresh with good balance, some yeast & cloves. Nice stuff.

Banana & cloves to start with faint alcohol. Citrus, mango & pineapple with background hops & grassy flavours feature, as does some bubblegum.

Creamy with a smooth feel & medium body helped down with moderate carbonation. The beers alcohol content was noticeable but the fruits in the taste helped mask at least some of it.

A good beer and one that benefited from the extra hops in both the taste and smell. Whilst it was a pleasant beer I think I'd be put off buying it all that often based on the fact that it is a lot stronger and harder to get a hold of that several other German wheat beer.
