BEER INFO

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

Style: 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.

Phenomenal brew. If an IPA and a Hefeweizen got drunk and had a baby this would be it.

500 mL bottle, dated "17.173" (Jun 22, 2017).

Pours a murky light amber with a small white head. Some yeast sediment at the end of the pour.

Big notes of lemon and orange citrus in the aroma mixed with clove-like spice. Flavor follows suit for the most part but with the addition of wheat malt and a little peppery spice. Medium bodied and finishes bitter and spicy, though it's not as heavy as the strong aroma and flavor suggests.

This is definitely not your typical weizenbock. It's bright and juicy with fresh citrus at the forefront. Honestly, I still don't know if I liked it or not. I finished it but I don't think it's something I'll purchase again.

L - dark golden orange body, white thick lingering head
S - hops? Piny, grassy notes
T - pine, bitterness
F - little to no carbonation, smooth, light coat
O - I was expecting a banana filled weizenbock and I experienced a double IPA. Really threw me off. Maybe I just got a beer with bad hops. Maybe it got hot cold hot cold on the way here. Different from other weizenbock's I've had in the past.
