BEER INFO

Weisses Bräuhaus G. Schneider & Sohn GmbH
Germany

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.

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

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.
