COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

"Tall white head with a light, cloudy orange/amber pour and good carbonation and lacing. Fruity aromas with bananas, peaches and pear, and yeasts, hops and wet straw. Taste is big on the bananas and ripe fruits upfront and a nice dose of hops and light linger."

10/5/2010. From bottle. Hazy golden color with a white head. Normally far from my favorite style, but the collaboration of German and American influences makes this one work very well.

Seems like forever since I’ve had a German weizen. This is a goodie! German quality with American hops. Cloudy dark golden (swirled end of bottle into my Schnieder weizen glass) with creamy off-white head. Normal weizen textures and tastes with the bonus of some extra hops, this a nice experiment, with great results.

Clear gold Light-medium body, medium flavor strength and small palette, long, bitter finish. Bitter, malt in background, Disappointing but typical weisse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared with Yanick. Pours cloudy orange with white head. Nice lacing. Nose and taste of baked banana bread, clove, sweet alcohol soaked oranges, florals, orange candy, grass and wheat malt. Medium body.

EtTuCthulhu (1384) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2013
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 (431) - 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.
