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.

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.

Golden honey colour with a great creamy noggin. The nose is surprisingly subdued, piney, orange zest, touch of burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is off the charts here equally creamy and crisp, full but refreshing. A touch oily which is always appreciated. Flavour is fully in the bitter citrus arena. Hops are evident but only mildly bitter. Perhaps late addition hops? Herbal and very citrusy like fresh squeezed bitter orange/bergamot. Delicious. Not crazy complex in that there aren't a million different flavours going on but what does come through comes through like a delicious laser beam of flavour.

Really delicious and refreshing. An excellent brew.

Beautiful beer - love the Weisse beer/hop combo!

aroma: yeast, sultanas, orange and white wine

taste: smoked banana and cloves with strong orange, orange peel, grapefruit, sultanas and raisins, spice, caramel, white wine and sweet ham.

outstanding beer: lots of complimenting flavours and easy to drink - a winner!
