BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH
Germany
schneider-weisse.de

Style: German Weizenbock

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.20%

Availability: Rotating

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. This review is for the version brewed by Schneider Weisse in Germany using Hallertau and Saphir hops.
L: Murky amber with a vivid orange core, foaming carbonation and three fingers of long-lasting, dense head.
S: Cloves, yeast and banana.
T: Citrus, mandarin, cinnamon, oak, just a hint of booze.
F: Super smooth, rich and luxurious mouthfeel, light carbonation, dry finish, some alcohol heat.
O: Magnificent weizendoppelbock. Dangerously alcoholic. Dangerously drinkable.

Look: cloudy, dark yellow, quite lively but the head dissipated quickly.
Taste: quite interesting, with the piney taste of American hop, and the bubble gum and banana-like of the taste.
Feel: medium-strong body.

An excellent brew from 2 formidable breweries! However, I prefer the German type better.

Amber, cloudy, yeasty appearence. Hazy and opaque after the final yeasty bits of the pour seep in.

The smell is a little banana, some prominent spices (cloves and more), German yeast abundant.

Incredible Bavarian yeast? Taste.. Banana, clove, spruce? All robust but mellowed by 8.2% booze.

A little sticky but a little wet.. sweet from that phenol and banana... mostly dry.

Wonderful beer that i want endless supplies of

Light orange colour with a lot of haze, it looks almost creamy. Full head of foam with pretty lacing on the glass. Full nose of cloves, orange, banana and lemon zest. Very nice. Taste is also very intense: cloves, grapefruit, malt, orange, lemons, herbs, flowers, it's all there. There is a mix of mild bitterness and spicy sharpness in the finish, combined with a gentle alcohol burner. Despite its intensity, this beer still manages to stay very balanced. Beer is medium-bodied and mouth feel is smooth and a bit warming. Very good beer, or as the label claims: ein wahres Feuerwerk der Sinnen!

Light caramel colour. Some hop bitterness and light hop oil aroma/flavour. Expect pineapple, and other fruity esters.
Full bodied beer, nicely balancing the 8% abv. Would recommend.

From the bottle, it pours a nice hazy amber with a nice off-white head that diminishes to a nice layer. Lacing as you enjoy the brew. Citrus in the nose. The mouth gets a pleasantly hoppy flavor that is just right in a weizen. Nice!

500 ml bottle poured into Weihenstephan Weizen glass. If an IPA and a Hefeweizen got drunk and had a baby this would be it. Look is a bit all over the place. What is this exactly? Aroma has strong hints of grapefruit, very citrusy. Some hints of bread and bananas. High abv- wouldn’t drink more than one or two during a session. Mouth feel is a bit flat. Only slight carbonation. Alcohol lingers a bit in the aftertaste. Good alternative if you’re tired of typical Hefeweizens, but I prefer the No. 6.
