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.

(bottle date 14 093 - poured into a jet-rinsed Schneider glass)

A: liquid is a nectarine skin hue, hazy... fantastic, sparkly, cotton candy textured white foam - at first, it leaves a bizarre lacing pattern similar to the net-like pattern found on a cantaloupe - it later flattens out into connecting broad bands of lace... keeps a cap all the way down

S: this may be the first time I can honestly say I immediately recognized the aroma of Saphir hops - strawberry (and another berry - dried raspberry?)... strong rose-like floral phenolics... smells like a garden in spring

T: strawberry shortbread cookie... alcohol with a fruit brandy flavor in the finish... up front, a startlingly bold hop flavor and bitterness for a beer made in Germany - flowery, "noble" flavors... doughy undercurrent and a bit of a cookie maltiness and nutty note (perhaps from the yeast) in the aftertaste

M: soft, satiny flow... bit of lingering boozy warmth... mild drying sensation on the tongue... wondering if the extra hopping enhances the plushy texture of what's already probably a plumply round body

O: second time having this - the first time, years ago when it came out, I hate to admit, I may have drunk straight from the bottle while liquored up one night... mildly astonished just how flavorful and enjoyable this beer is... this bottle was only a couple months old - kinda curious how some of the older bottles I have compare... this is a wonderful hoppy alternative to your ubiquitous IPAs

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

One of my favorite new beers, I could possibly even consider this one for a session...a short one obviously.

A: very cloudy light orangish color with big large head, little lacing

S: bananas, faint sour apples, cloves and spices, hops

T: very much of the banana and caramel in the background with some hoppy spiciness up front.

M: light with more than avg carbonation

D: very very good beer that I can drink in large quantities, taste never gets old

Serving type: on-tap
