BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brooklyn Brewery
New York, United States
brooklynbrewery.com

Style: Weizenbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Brooklyn 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/ American Amarillo and Palisade.

Pours a cloudy orange with a white bubbly head -- good retention.

Smells of freshly mowed grass with orange and spice backed by a floral bouquet.

Grassy with a bitter herb punch, followed by sweet citrus that flows into the slick malt backbone and is lost in deliciousness. This a big beer with lots of flavor and subtle complexity.
