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.

4/5  rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

500ml bottle poured into a Weizen glass. ABV 8.2%.

A - Poured a cloudy deep gold with a 3cm off-white head. Head reduced to a long lasting thin cap. Some lacing.

S - Spice hits upfront, lots of fruity notes like banana, lemon, oranges & pineapple, some bread and herbal notes. Smells really nice.

T - Wheat, golden sugar, bananas, citrus fruit, grass and spices. The spicy/herbal note from hops are apparent throughout from the first sip to the finish and also into the aftertaste. As it warms a hint of booze comes through.

M - Medium carbonation, medium-heavy body, creamy, tangy, sticky, finish is just a bit gritty with a bit of heat.

D - I last reviewed this beer 3 years ago with a score of 3.53. Boy have my tastes changed since then. As a long time lover of wheat beers and recently IPAs, I've gained a new appreciation for hopfenweisse style beers.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Very cloudy with sediment and yeast clumps; orangish with huge head

Aroma: Very interesting smell; spicy, like a Belgian wheat; orange citrus

Taste: Wow! Very interesting; very hoppy on start with a zippy, spicy, orange citrus mid and finish; very enjoyable, complex flavor profile

Remarks: Definitely one of my favorites so far; like a much better version of Hoegarden. But you have to be in the mood for it.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Golden yellow in color with an orangish hue and hazy. Poured with a rich white foam that quickly reduced to a wispy cap that left sheets of wet lacings on the glass. Sharp citrus hop aromas with wheat malt and sweet banana beneath. Creamy smooth feel down the middle with more aggressive, fizzier carbonation on the edges. Tangy pink grapefruit, tangerine and lemon zest hop flavors. Wheat malt backbone with sweet banana, powdery bubblegum and a peppery spicy bite near the end. Finishes with lingering citrus hop and banana sweet aftertaste. A touch of booze sneaks end toward the bottom of the glass. An interesting collaboration brew.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Purchased at Grassroots Market in Jacksonville, FL on business. Pour was very un-eventful...meh. Hazy golden straw color (nice) no head (bad) ...but it is 8.2abv...so...
Smell is good - not mind blowing. Hoppy hefe. Noble hops meet banana and clove crispness. Its actually more hops than I would have thought.
Taste is firstly bitter hop and herbal grassy notes - then some underlying hefe typical banana and clove, but its crisp yet heavy...some spices sine through. Its super easy to drink and pleasant and very very different. Well worth a buy - especially for $5. There is very little you can fault here; and a lot to gain. Well worth it.

O - Interesting taste. but i would say the nose is better than the taste. Nose is huge and awesome. Was a bit thinner than i expected. Alcohol is hidden so, so well. really sweet and carmely. not sure if i like the overly sweet wheat/carmel taste.

poured into a weizen glass

a: hazy golden orange with a 2/3 finger white head. This looks great. Poured in the yeast and got a ton of floaters in here

s: sugary yeast, strawberry, banana, pear, raw sweet grapefruit. super super fruity. maybe a hint wheat

t: sweet juicy pears, strawberry, sweet cherry right away, a little bit of yeast spice followed by a real nice citrus wheat and sweet malt flavor. this has a fresh bread flavor that then fades into something like a blood orange. final taste is a hint of grapefruit and creamy grain/grass. the 8.2% is hidden quite well. i'm sitting outside drinking this now on a spring day and it just feels right.

m: interesting. its pretty light, but has a creaminess to it that makes it a real smooth drinker

o: this is action packed with sweet fruit and yeast flavor and balanced with nice wheat and malt components. at 8.2% this is dangerously drinkable

Picked this up at a great little beer store in Arlon, Miorge Mihoublon. Cloudy amber-orange pour with nice two finger fluffy white head with great retention and lacing. The nose is pretty typical Weizenbock but with some really nice citrus notes as well. Hints of grapefruit, clove, coriander, tangerine, banana, pear, and white pepper. The taste is even bolder with a great sweet caramel maltiness that nicely complements the hops. Very fruity and spicy with hints of apple, banana, lemon, apricot, grapefruit, coriander, and cloves. The mouthfeel is crisp and tart but creamy at the same time. Overall, this is a great interpretation that I will definitely be revisiting.

4.11/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance- The beer pours a golden amber color with a two finger white head. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is fruity and bold. The heaviest aroma is that of a more citrus nature, being heaviest of orange and tangerine, but also having notes of grapefruit hop and a bit of lemon. Mixed with the citrus, are other fruit aromas of banana as well as some apple and pear. There is a slight yeasty and bready aroma with some smells of spice. A candy like sugar aroma is also present there as well producing an overall aroma that reminds me of a fruit roll-up. Quite a delicious smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a wheaty and citrus sweet flavor with strong flavors of orange. Other fruit flavors of banana and apple come to the tongue with more breadiness coming along as well. Toward the middle and the end, the yeast and spice that was detected in the nose also come to the tongue. More toward the end some of the sweeter flavors begin to fade however and a somewhat funky and hay like flavor come to the tongue with an intensification of the yeast as well as some bitter grapefruit joining along. In the end a slightly barnyard, but heavily citrus and wheaty flavor is left onto linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average to a little thinner for a brew of 8.2 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the slightly above average side. The lower body and higher carbonation are quite appropriate for the wheaty, citrus and funky flavors of the brew and make it quite a drinkable and enjoyable feel overall.

Overall - A rather nice brew that drinks much easier then it should (in light of its 8.2 % abv and more saision like funky flavor)s. It is a rather good drinker and one to try if you get a chance.

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...

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Poured into a wine glass, producing a nice white head, really solid lacing and film. Colour is a clear coppery gold. Really pretty beer.

Smell is fruity and fresh. Definite yeasty aspect. Underripe banana, apple and fresh berries. Very distinctive. Maybe some play dough, not a ton of malt other than a great fruitiness aspect. Marinated Olives! Really fragrant.

Taste is fruity and crisp, apple, really creamy. A slight earthy spice, cherries with a slightly brandy alcohol. Some caramel biscuity malt with nice smoothness from the wheat. Hops are there with lots of juicy grapefruit citrus but only a slight dry aggressive bitterness. Really delicious, shows off some great complexity as it warms. A touch of astringency on the end. Balance is really nicely done, just a prickle of alcohol coming through the wheat.

Mouthfeel is really creamy, then light on the finish. Body is moderate but quite full, really soft carbonation, with not much alcohol spice coming through. Really pleasing. Incredibly drinkable for the high abv.

Really well executed beer. Quite interesting. Hoppiness didn't really stand out too much, but there is a lot of fruity citrus coming through. This seemed like a lighter weizenbock with more light malt and more of a mild noble hop character, I def prefer tap 6, though this is really quite nice, easy drinking yet makes a complex punch. I would get this again, would love to try brooklyn's version.

an unlikely collaboration, and a beer I really enjoyed. this pours cloudy pale brass color with a good two inch white head. the nose is really hoppy. so many hopfen beers just pay lip service to it, but this one is super hoppy in terms aroma. there is fruity hops, almost citra, but apparently some hallertau variety is used. its more hoppy than almost any other german thing ive had, and I love it. there is also a lot of heavier wheat malt and alcohol taste to this, as well as a very dry finish that is fruity and bitter from these hops. the is entirely unlike any weizenbock ive had out there, and one that I will be coming back to. its a little filling, and the alcohol can get you going pretty quick, but the flavors are fantastic and the mouthfeel works for what it is. really good carbonation on such a full bodied beer is a nice change of pace. overall the highlight of this beer for me is the hop complexion, its big and bold and unique, especially for the style. the is exceptionally well done.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500 ml bottle into a Weihenstephan hefe glass.

A very nice pour. Pale orange juice colored. Full of haze and cloudiness. Opaque. About three fingers thick off white colored almost tan head with excellent retention. Very very good lacing on the sides. A lot of bubbles seen rising up.

Aroma is full of hops that are a bit flowery, grassy and earthy. Bottle says it uses Hallertauer hops. A good wheat presence as well. Some sweetness. Strength is good to strong. Slight coriander and camphor presence.

Taste is just about perfect with all the superior delicious qualities of an bock present intact. Sweet yet herbal. Also drinks like a wheat IPA with a much better body. Yeast. Wheat, proteins. Clove and banana flavors are still present along with the spicy touch added by hops. Finish is semi-sweet. Bitterness is very low but still the taste is near perfect.

Mouth feel is medium bodied. High carbonation. Nice texture. Creamy and easy feel. Slight alcohol presence that gives some warmth as well. Solid brew clocking an impressive 8.2%.

Excellent stuff.

Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color with a large foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains wheat, caramelized malts, bananas and some hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat and a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then some sweet flavors come in from flavors of bananas and caramel. The hops presence is mild but complementary and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready and slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and very smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid and flavorful beer with enough substance to make it worth drinking for a long time.

Nice cloudy typical orange, brown "Hefeweizen" colour with a 3 finger white head. Lots of carbonation visable in the glass.

Smells more like an IPA, fruity with a light banana and clove touch, rellay pleasant smell.

Taste is sweet at first, fruity and extremly spicey, light banana and more clove than in the smell is present. Finish is slightly hoppy and dry. Nice and refreshing

Medium Body with a lingering light hoppy bitterness on the palate.

It is not my favourite "Hefeweizen", but a really good alternative to your normal Hefeweizen.
I am definetly going to buy this beer again.

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.

Bottle says 120131 so I suppose it was bottled Jan 31st, 2012 making it about a year old.

A: Very hazy pale amber color. Very soft colored. Thin bumpy white head with some spots of lacing, but no rings.

S: Big malty nose. Some lighter caramel scents, but not like a caramel corn or caramel candy, but faint like a cookie or something. Very floral smelling. Some alcohol esters.

T: I pick up the hops, which have a bit of orange rind character as well as some light mint quality. Some cardboard flavor which I've picked up in (I believe) all of the Schneider Weisse beers I've picked up. I suppose this is oxidation but it could be something else. It has a bland paper flavor shortly after taking a sip. Aside from the hop characters, there isn't much malt complexity to the beer.

M: It has a very good mouthfeel when it comes to the smooth texture of the beer, but feels a bit watery (love it or hate it). I like it and find that it makes the beer much easier to drink. Pretty light in mouthfeel.

O: Overall I thought the beer was okay, but it wasn't anything to get excited over. I believe it's about a year old so that could contribute to some of the loss in aroma and flavor. It still tastes good, and would be pleasant to drink. It's hard to believe it's 8.2% because it tastes so light. I would probably only drink it again if it was less than a month or two old.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a Schneider-Weisse weizen glass. (extra care taken this time to get all the sediment poured as there's quite alot of it)

Pours a very cloudy light brown, dark yellow colour, with quite a nice head.

Smells very yeasty, with a slight hop scent.

Tastes nicely of a hopped up, yeasted up, and boozed up hefeweizen. Quite lovely with a massive yeast tang, although a fresher version might have been better, as the hops, whilst more prominent than many wheat beers, aren't very pronounced at all.

Overall a pretty good beer, refreshingly different.

beautiful aroma of pine, pear and orange.
Appearance is a nice pale but cloudy haystack.
Taste is delicate and full. fruits but not dark fruits and wheat crackers. I get a slight peachy and orange flavor with a touch of clove followed by a whimsical earthy piney flavor. the malt is wonderfully balanced with the hop taste and aroma.
The carbonation is high but it adds to the full mouthfeel.
A great collaboration beer. the hops adds to a wonderful drinking experience. Great job!

Straight pour from 1 pint 0.9oz / 500ml / 16.9oz pry-off bottle to a 25cl Duvel Single tulip; bottling date of July 23, 2012 printed in black ink with a Julian code variant on the back label, just above the barcode (“12.205 120131”).

Appearance (4.0): The head comes up to about two fingers of cream-colored foam, crackling softly before dying down relatively quickly. There’s some modest retention with an opaque film on the surface of the body, with a few scattered suds and a handful of thick legs composing some lace on the sides. The body is a glowing, luminous orange-amber and very hazy—really pretty stuff. Looks about right for a doppelbock.

Smell (4.5): There’s a very lovely mix of floral, grassy hops and a vinous fruity character, very grape-y, if that’s a thing. It also smells of candied fruits, like maraschino cherries, and a sweet, bready tone that mixes with a tart, slightly lemony wheat grain character. Very nice on the nose.

Taste (3.5): The malt is definitely the main story here, with a simple syrup-like malt sweetness that also touches on peach juice, tying into a grainy underbelly that’s mostly a lightly tart, pale wheat character, as per the nose. The hops come through, but very softly, as a floral and somewhat lemony character, especially in the finish (which is modest and I wish hung around a bit longer). It’s good, but I was expecting more hop character.

Mouthfeel (4.0): Very nice mouthfeel, with lush carbonation that tingles very lightly on the way down and prior to that is soft and filling. The body is medium-heavy, rather full-feeling and somewhat viscous—which matches the style well, if I recall correctly. This ain’t a guzzler by any stretch of the imagination, but it fits the style very well.

Overall (3.5): Overall, it’s a pretty good wheat-dominant doppelbock. I was hoping for more hop character, even at its relatively advanced age—the store clerk said that it was JUST put out on the shelves, so I have to assume that even if it’s not super-super fresh, it was as fresh as I was going to get it and that being the case, I’d expect some more hops. It’s enjoyable and drinkable, for sure, but not exactly what I was seeking. I would definitely be interested in trying this fresh-fresh or on tap.

Appearance is cloudy and gold, like most hefeweizens, although the head is smaller and fades faster than your typical hefe. The scent is a very nice combination of grapefruit, melon, lemon, and clove. The taste is like a hoppy hefeweizen, with banana and clove flavors meshing nicely with a grapefruit twang. This is an interesting beer, and very enjoyable for someone like me who loves hoppy beers and also wheat beers.
