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.

This is a treat. Starting with the appearance. I kept all the sediment on the bottom of the bottle and poured slowly to get a amazingly bright and crystal clear gold yellow body... tons of carbonation, very champagne like, and a just off white head you could pass as whipped cream it's so thick. Sipped down a bit and poured the cloudy sediment in, immediately turning the brew to honey gold and you can't even see your finger through the other side. You could about eat that yeast with a spoon (not quite, but you catch my drift.)

Beautiful aroma balancing sweet fruits and hops. Oily and chalky, with banana bread and peaches on top of a nice wheat base.

Taste on this one is great, a hopped up weizenbock, just what they were going for. Big on the booze flavor toward the end. Hops and fruits are still what come through though you can't get around the creamy wheat taste either. Some spiced up ginger in there as well.

Feel is creamy and smooth, medium carbonation (not what the appearance had suggested).

Overall, this was great, a great style beer with a mouthful of hops. Great for sipping (pretty heavy and higher ABV). Its finally starting to cool down from summer to fall here and this is a perfect beer for tonight.

Poured from 500ml bottle. Aroma of orange with a bit of grass. Appearance is a cloudy golden with thick white head. Taste is a light sour. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation, with a bitter slightly dry finish. An amazingly smooth beer, it is hard to believe has 8.2% alcohol.

Pours a huge honkin 3 finger head that takes up 50% of the glass, fades at a med pace with nice lacing all over, a fairly hazy orange wheat colored beer with stream of bubbles rising up the center. 4.25

Nose brings mostly typical hefe/bock aromas, big wheat, lots of toasted creamy wheat, with a very faint biscuity note, as well as the typical banana and coriander like spices, and some citrus, faint orange rind, lemongrass, and a creamy orange drink. There are also some sweet candy like aromas, little candied orange, with flashes of grassy floral hint citrus like hops. 4.25

Taste brings wheat again, but sweet candy caramelized wheat out front, much sweeter than I expected, with big creamy toasted wheat flavors out front with the candy, a little syrupy as well, and mild biscuity toffee caramel flavor. Then into the hefe like, with mild caramlized banana, hint of phenolic spices, plenty of esters with the banana and a little fruity flavor, with mild citrus orange zest, much more mild on the citrus. Then hops kick in, big spicy hops, with a mild orange rind and some grassy floral flavors. Finish is sticky and still semi sweet, more candy lingering, caramel, toffee, etc, and big time booze kicks in with mild phenols again, a faint yeasty flavor, and more grainy creamy wheat. 3.75

Mouth is med to fuller bod, creamy and sticky syrupy, lots of carb, some warming booze mostly at the end. 4

Overall not bad, a big time beer that I wasn't really expecting from a brewery like this, nice wheat, bit too booze forward and way too sweet candy like for my taste, but fits the style. Hops are a bit too muted up front, then too spicy and strong on the back end, like they didn't blend in too well. Enjoyable but can't drink a lot of it. 4
