This Beer is served on DRAFT and in 750ml BROOKLYN bottles.
In May 2007, Garrett Oliver traveled to the 400 yr-old Schneider brewery in Kelheim, Germany, to brew Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse. This was dry-hopped with the local Hallertauer Saphir hop variety. In July, Drexler brought his yeast to Brooklyn and brewed Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse, choosing the American Amarillo and Palisade varieties for the dry-hopping. Now you can taste the result, the latest beer in our Brewmaster’s Reserve series. The beer has a full orange color and the aromatics pair the banana and clove notes from the Schneider yeast with the mango and citrus qualities of the hops. The bitterness is robust but balanced, and the beer has a clean, hoppy finish.
Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse pairs well with Caribbean seafood preparations, crab cakes, jerk chicken, Thai cuisine, Szechuan cooking and many Mexican dishes.”

The aroma of this beer is heavenly with the mixture of resin and floral hops with wheat and orange zest. In a glass, the beer is a cloudy amber color with a small white head that fades quickly to a ring, and the taste is a mildly sweet, touch bitter, and slightly sour. Also, the mouthfeel of this beer makes you roll your eyes in ecstasy due to the medium body, thick texture, average carbonation, and long finish.

Alpha10 (323) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
2013/07/12 - Pours a cloudy orange colour with a massive, frothy, off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is yeast, banana, cloves, orange and tropical fruit. Taste orange and tropical fruit up front with a banana, clove, and sweet alcohol aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of carbonation and a dry, bitter finish. Interesting beer. Alcohol taste was more prominent than I expected and hop profile was less than I had hoped. Still, a nice imperial wheat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bäst före 2010. Jo ja men varför inte lite lagrad schneider?.. Olivspad i doften så det sjunger om det. Maltig. Har inslag av Heinz tomatketchup.

Nice beer collaboration. Nice earthy hop aroma pairs well wit clovey hefe and taste is paired well as well....bitterness present but not overwhelming and complimented by hefe backbone. Tastes lighter than ABV indicates.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Keg @ brewdog mcr, high amount of lemony citrus hops on the nose, taste is very unbalanced zesty like a strong wheat with hops and the schneider house banana clove and caramel flavour. Good beer.

Pulled this out of the cellar after about 6 months but at a bit of a faux pas: I only had one bottle! So with nothing to compare it to here it goes. A: Looks good. Like a bold wheat beer. Hazy orange but a deeper hue. Like a golden brown sort of thing. S: Smells like a wheat beer. Smooth. Nice, but with a bit of funk. T: Very interesting. Huge wheat note at the start but fades to more of an ale like taste with some hops and a bit of malt and definitely some alcohol in there. Well balanced for a high ABV wheat beer. A little aggressive on the palate but has some great wheat and earthy notes. Lingering alcohol gives a bit of a burn that seems out of place. P: Light at first, but with a heavy finish.... a bit odd. Carbonation is moderate. Super super dry on the palate. Overall this is an alright beer. Lots of good notes and certainly not a bad go at an imperial wheat. The wheat is good but there is a weird funk as the beer lingers which really takes a lot away from the other fun notes. The problem is weihenstephaner just makes the best wheat beer and this one cannot compare.
