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.

3.18/5  rDev -22.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Hazy apricot in color, moderate carbonation with a nice white head. Not an especially good looking beer, but not bad.

S: Classic gig banana esters & clove phenolics, pear/woody/minty hops, very bready. It has a kind of medicinal vibe to me. Very complex and unique for sure.

T: Sweet fruity/bready weiss vibes then the hops come in. Very herbal & woody in the middle with a fruitier finish.

M: Ever present carbonation with creamy mouthfeel.

I feel like there is just a bit too much going on in this beer. The combo of big yeast character with a noble punch hop is a cool experiment but I wouldn't buy this beer again.

Appearance is golden to cloudy brown if your pour in the yeast from the bottle. Excellent head and retention. Bubbles slightly larger than some of their other brews. Smell is heavy pine with a nice malt balance. Taste reveals a very well balanced beer with significant hopping to be expected but offset with a molasses malt flavor. Hoppy bitter sweet lingers for a while. Enjoyable.

Review from notes:
500 ml served into a Weizen glass

A – Cloudy burnt orange, lots of sediment, with a 2 finger white head that clings to the glass leaving sheets of lacing.

S – Peach puree, mango, clove, sweet malt, honey, banana, just a barrage of rich fruit aromas.

T – Big dose of fruity wheat. tangy banana, peaches, lemons, citrus meld with a sweet pilsner malt. Citrus and floral hops stick to the tongue on the finish.

M – Rich and creamy feel, full bodied.

Big yeast presence and just the right amount of hops. Very soft feel and delicious. Zero alcohol presence. Great summertime beer.

3/5  rDev -26.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a very cloudy, hazy, milky golden yellow. The beer is just full of haze and yumminess. The head is thick and slightly dirty white. Large bubbles on the perimeter and foamy, small bubbles in the center. Good retention, not much lace.

Fruity banana, cloves, bubble gum. Lemon and honey in the background.

While I enjoy a high ABV beer as much as the next guy, I don't want the beer to taste like alcohol. This one does. While it doesn't burn your tongue or throat, it's a very forward, aggressive alcohol flavor that takes away from the other yummy ingredients. Lemon, faint banana, and bubble gum take care of the taste buds the alcohol doesn't.

Early on it's smooth and creamy and a bit sweet. Then the alcohol wipes that clean and gives a grainy alcohol feel til the swallow. Medium bodied. Kind of a dryish, hot finish.

Overall it's very disappoinging. I've had the other collaboration from these brewers and it was excellent. This isn't. Tastes only slightly different than straight alcohol. I'm pleased with the 8.2% ABV, I just don't want to taste it. Almost tastes like a mixed drink.

Poured a cloudy yellow/brown with no head to speak of.

The smell was powerful, lemons, oranges, banana, cloves and bubble gum.

The taste was sweet and yeasty with a little alcohol and a little hop presence but not bitter.

The mouth feel was smooth and creamy, medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall this was a very good weisse beer, not my favourite style but this is probably my favourite weisse to date.

"heller Weizendoppelbock mit besonderer Hopfennote"

.5l on tap and served in a S.Weisse tulip glass at Weisses Bräuhaus in central Munich.

A: cloudy apple and orange juice mix with a well proportioned near white head. Excellent sticky lacing and very good retention.

The aroma is remarkably hoppy ...f or a European beer. There is a clear weisse beer base with a strong hop presence: a hop component like an Amer. IPA. Lots of orange in the nose!
The flavor is a bit different, with much less hop presence than in the nose. It is a bit more sweet than bitter, even in the finish. Still a strong citrus flavor; mainly orange. Yeasty too. A complex mix of diverse flavors that are really well integrated.

M: exceptionally smooth. No harshness whatsoever. Medium body.

O: a really exceptional beer worth seeking out. [4.25] The best weisse beer I've ever had. Despite the very hoppy aroma, this beer should be drinkable even for many who are not so fond of hop flavor or bitter beers.

A-cloudy dark gold with a thin white head

S-smells like wonderful hoppy wheats. The wheats smell new Belgian than anything. Bit of banana. This smells awesome. 

T-well this is just an odd beer. A lot going on here. Comes in with a creamy and aged taste of oranges  and white wheats. the after-taste a really solid flavor of hops with out the bitterness. 

M-medium creamy carbonation with a creamy finish

O-it's an okay beer. Has a lot of complexity to it. It just doesn't seem to flow extremely well. it's not the easiest drinker either.

Review from 9/2010 notes. Poured into a Celebrator Pokal. Pours a cloudy orange amber. One finger white head with decent retention. Pineapple hop, wheat and stone fruit aroma. Wheat, stone fruit with pineapple/citrus hops. Clove in the middle and finish. Very interesting, a weissen crossed with an mild IPA. I like it.

Pours hazy cloudy deep gold/orangy color. No lace, decent retention of head.

Nice peach nectar and honeyed malt aromas with a kiss of booze.

This one is nice, and get better as it warms. Some good toasted wheat and grain sweetness up front, some booze, some citric notes. Dead cold out of the fridge this has some harshness, but as it warms, fruit comes up a touch, as does some spice. Still, has a decent bitter pucker at the end, and is fairly clean in the finish. Nice job.

Medium and carbonated.

Nice alternative and style attempt. Works well. Will have again.

Went to this brewery and had it in their beer garden and it was the most interesting beer ive ever had. The citrus aroma blending with the banana and clove yeast by-products produces and absolutely splendid beer. Granted I had this right from the brewery and its always the best there, I also had it in the U.S. and it was almost as good. Still had all the notes that I remembered.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

I buy this beer regularly since I live in Germany and the beer is sold in the half liter bottles which are standard German fare.

This beer is bottle fermented and the yeast is in the bottle, if you roll the bottle before you open it, it will dispense the yeast into the beer. This makes for a very cloudy beer with larger than usual pieces of yeast floating around.

I don't smell beer very often, but this beer smells like grain with a hint of lemon/ citrus.

The taste of this beer is unusual in that it's the first hoppy beer made in Germany that I have tasted.It is a wonderful beer for the hot summer months and very refreshing as well as intoxicating.

The carbonation is medium to low and feels very natural.

I love beer and this is the pinnacle of beer making to this point for me.

4.4/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Looks (3.5/5) – Pours a rich gold with some nice orange colours to it. Head is decent: it rises a bit small on a hard pour; it’s texture is a bit soapy; it falls very slowly to a decent cap that really lasts and leaves little lacing. It is really ridiculously opaque, which makes it look a tad dark.

Smell (4.5/5) – The smell is a really great marriage of the hops and the yeast. The yeast is very citrusy, it has some lemon, but it’s pretty firmly in the grapefruit- range. That’s complemented really well by the banana notes of the weizen yeast. There’s also some light fruit notes like orange peel and pear that come through on the finish that are probably yeast (maybe spicing or hops). I notice that the clove yeast aroma is relatively minimal, which I think works for the style.

Taste (4.5/5) – Really nice; it actually reminds me a bit of the Dogfish Blood Orange Hefe. The malt character is fairly mild, but falls into a lightly sweet graininess and a bit of that distinctive wheat flavour a bit of crystal and/or biscuit. The hops are of the same, primarily grapefruit flavour. There’s some citrus and a very little bit of resin, but this is really about that one citrus flavour. That plays really well with the yeast, which is more complexly fruity than many hefeweizens; the banana plays really well with the grapefruit, adding a bit of softness to the harsher grapefruit flavour, but there is also a good assortment of other fruity notes (pear, peach, apricot, etc) with a bit of high-alcohol perfume in there. A high-medium hop bitterness carries through the end with the grapefruit flavour the really balance the sweetness.

Feel (4/5) – I think this one was like a really good hefeweizen in its feel. Light-Medium body and relatively good carbonation (actually a touch lower than usual here) mix with the mouth-coating hops and a slight hint of alcohol to make it feel something like whipped cream.

The balance of this brew is really something great. The new world hops with that grapefruit flavour meets really well with the hefeweizen yeast. I think this mix was especially good because that yeast – for whatever reason – seemed to have a bit less clove. Now, I love clove in my traditional hefeweizens, but this just played it so well. It’s rare that these beers pop up in the LCBO and I love it when they do.

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

500mL bottle from the LCBO. Poured into a hefeweizen glass.

My first observation with this beer is its murkyness, which I have to say places this brew as among the murkiest weizenbeers I have ever had, even for a weizenbock. A tan-peach concoction with about a half inch of head that recedes into a fine ring. Not the world's best looking brew, but this will become utterly irrelevant in a few moments.

The nose is exactly what I had predicted: a stellar combination of the wheat beer notes (wheat malt, banana, clove, herbal hops) and American hops, which give the brew a lovely citrus aroma (lemon and grapefruit).

Now this is a wheat beer whose extra hops make this truly greater than the sum of its parts. The soft wheat and banana notes are brought to the fore along with a tangy, citrussy blast of lemon and grapefruit, making for one refreshing brew indeed. Clove and herbal hops linger in the background. Medium bodied, slightly chewy.

A great summer brew that proves to be an excellent marriage of old and new styles of brewing. I will definitely be back for this brew many times over as the heat wave continues unabated...

4.18/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

500 mL bottle from the LCBO; bottled in March 2012 if I am deciphering the packaging code correctly.

Pours a foggy golden-amber colour, with two fingers of smooth, frothy white head that erupts at the surface. Limited retention for a weisse; it only sticks around for a few minutes, leaving behind a collar of lace and an even white cap on the surface. Great aroma that combines a lot of my favourite traits from both hefes and IPAs. Lots of sweet, wheaty malts, banana, lemony citrus notes and tons of grassy, floral hops underlain by a mild clove spiciness. Surprisingly strong aroma - I'm a smoker and I could still smell this stuff across the room after opening it.

Impressive flavour; much like the aroma, it blends a lot of the best things about German wheat beers and American-style hoppy ales into a tasty whole. A backbone of sweet, wheaty malts and yeast provides a medium for the plethora of fruity flavours to display themselves - ranging from more orthodox weisse flavours like banana, through to pineapple, peach, lemon and orange citrus. Fruity, floral aftertaste with some lingering dryness. Full-bodied, slightly oily with some yeasty chew, and relatively mild carbonation for a really smooth mouthfeel. The 8.2% abv is nowhere to be seen.

Final Grade: 4.18, an A-. This is not the first bottle of Schneider Hopfen-Weisse I've sampled, and unless they stop making it, I sincerely doubt it will be the last. Even though I like both hefes and IPAs, I'd be lying if I said that I initially thought combining them sounded like a good idea. But this is just an unbelievably well-made beer that combines some of the best things about both styles. Worth a try for sure.

Pours cloudy straw with a frothy head that lasts forever. Grassy hops and fruity malt and wheat notes make up the nose. The taste is like the lemon Froot Loops, sweet and mildy tart, with lychees and green melon hops also showing. Bubblegum and cloves show mildly in the background. The mouthfeel is full bodied and smoothly carbonated. Mild bitterness and a lot of herbal hop flavor make up the long finish.

This is a stellar, if un-conventional, Weizenbock. Lots of great noble hop flavors. A must try.

Hazy peachy coloured body, quite a bit of floating matter in there as well, ring of white head and no lace to speak of. Smell is very hoppy, citrus and tropical fruits, a bit of some yeasty bread like scents but mostly sharp pineapple and citrus and some banana with a bit of alcohol. Taste is also quite hoppy with tart citrus fruits, tropical fruit and a bit of banana, grapefruit and orange flavours, spicy with quite a bit of sweet alcohol present as well, a little astringency. Light carbonation, medium body with a fairly full feel. This was just ok, a bit boozy for my liking and a bit too much sweet hop flavours, I finished both bottles I had but had higher hopes for this beer.

500ml bottle - nice to see the flip-side of last year's Brooklyner-Schneider offering in our remote metropolitan outpost.

This beer pours a cloudy, fine sediment-strewn, bright golden amber hue, with two fingers of tight frothy eggshell white head, which leaves some nice volcanic island atoll lace around the glass as it perfunctorily recedes.

It smells of tart orange citrus, unripe banana, cloves, grainy wheat, sassy white pepper, and further fruity, floral hops. The taste is softly sweet wheat malt, prominent fruitiness - orange, pineapple, lemon, and dry banana - soft, lilting spice of the clove and red pepper sort, a simple earthy, leafy hoppiness (and agreeably bitter, for the style), with a wee speck of booze warming, barely a tingle, as it approaches room temperature.

The carbonation is quite obviously a central character in this show, the bottle fermentation a pivotal plot point , and even with a less than standard initial CO2 send-off, the bubbles are quite soft and pleasant. This leads to a relatively unaccosted, generally smooth body, and a clean, grainy, hoppy, fruity, spicy, and subtly boozy finish - all agreeably entwined, I might add.

A deftly integrated, duly hoppy, and strong wheat beer, the result more tasty than I may have expected, especially given the presence (absence?) of the full-on Houdini treatment of the big alcohol component. Good stuff, and cheers/Prost to the furtherance of this fruitful and hopful [sic] collaboration.

Bottled 2/7/12.

Pours a murky, turbid orange-brown with a 2 inch foamy bone colored head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of wheat, grain, spices, slight hops, and lots of yeast aromas. There is also a bit of a soapy or chalky aroma that I am getting as well. Taste is of yeast, spice, and hops up front with the wheat/grain flavors coming through in the finish. The hop flavors are quite citrus-like and do not really contribute too much bitterness to take away from the overall beer. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a really good beer and I quite enjoy the hopped up take on a hefeweizen.

Beer is a hazy, translucent golden with a moderately sized white head. Moderate retention. Minimal lacing.

Smell is full of fruit: banana, peach, pineapple, lemon, passionfruit. Honey, yeast, a sweet malty scent accompany, along with floral overtones. Traditional weisse scents with some hopping.

Taste is similar to the nose but with a twist. The banana, peach, pineapple and passionfruit is there, but with a bitter bite that was not noticeable in the nose. A sweet biscuity malt backs it up. Alcohol is noticeable.

Medium bodied, rather oily, moderate carbonation.

Overall, tasty and pretty distinctive. A fairly unique beer.

I believe bottled June 14, 2010. Poured into the Schneider Weisse weizen glass.

A slew of floaties from the swirling job. An almost caramel-orange color with a finger of cream-colored head. 3.0

Soft caramel candy, red grapes, pound cake, clove, booze, wet cardboard, and medicinal phenols. Slight amyl acetate and buttery aroma. 4.0

Kind of boozy and definitely showing some oxidation. Caramel chew, earthy aged hops, Band-Aid, light buttercream, tart apple, cooking sherry, ethyl acetate, alcohol, pineapple, and mild banana. Not much toastiness to the grain, just a cereal wheat malt with a sweet/tart feel. Seemingly much past its prime. 3.0

Light syrup to the body with medium-light carbonation. A little too boozy. A little too sticky. 3.5

The potential was there in this one, but it's peaked and then some. Too many oxidized notes. Learned my lesson on this one. 3.5

This beer poured a bright gold color with some haziness in the clarity. The head was a strong white foam which lead to some nice lacing as the glass was enjoyed. Once poured this beer showed hints of citrus, spiciness and banana with a light floral note from the hops. The flavor exploded upon first sip, definitely enjoyable orange, clove and fainter banana finishing with a pleasant spiciness.

Aroma: Bold aroma. Lots of esters, more peach than the usual banana and lemon. Lots of yeasty phenols, mild spice, but not much clove. Moderate European hop aroma. Lots of pilsner and Munich malts. Good aroma, but not the typical classic hefe aroma.

Appearance: Deep gold, somewhat clear with lots of small particles in suspension. Head pours a moderate height is pale white. Slight retention and good lacing.

Taste: Moderate hop flavor, hence "Hopfen-Weisse" on the label. Lots of sweet malt, some caramel and a good dose of wheat. Certainly some yeasty elements as seen in the aroma. Very mild clove. Hops are bitter citrus and pine.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body. Slick and buttery. Finishes quite dry. Mild carbonation.

Overall: Nice hefe, although nowhere near a classic example. A bit heavy on the hops, but the flavor is pleasant.
