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.”

skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark orangey golden with a huge, fluffy white head . Aroma is wonderful: lots of fruit apple, peach, bannana lots of fairly sweet biscuity, doughy malt; some caramel; some spicy, floral hops. Flavor is a lot sweeter, with more emphasis on the malt and a lightly bitter finish. The wheat is fairly muted in both the aroma and flavor, but there is some clove that melds nicely with the floral, spicy hops. Great weizen bock I’m going back for another bottle.

Orange pour with thick cloud of sediment, frothy quick white head, high delicate carbonation. Tropical aroma. Mango, grapefruit, banana yeast. Oily and chewy. Beautiful pour. Quite sweet up front with a nice balanced fruity almost cola finish. A little bit boozy. This stuff is huge. definitely not sessionable but I love it. I had it with steak but drink this with something hot!

jstraw (1917) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Version brewed in Germany with Schneider Weisse label. Muddy orange with good, creamy white head / Rich, sweet nose of orange peel, banana, cream, clove, bread, and coriander / Medium to full body, rich, sweet, creamy, excellent balance with a little hop bite, and long, lightly bitter finish / Smooth but deep flavors of banana, orange peel, pineapple, coconut, clove, nutmeg, and coriander / I am naturally skeptical of big weisses, weisses in general being prone to being cloying. This is a beauty, and is almost dessert.

dandeman (505) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 23, 2012
Recent version brewed in Germany offers citrus aromas; orange, banana, lemon. Appearance is hazy dark straw with marvelous abundant head, good lacing and long lasting. Malty and sweet attack with a good support of alcohol.Just enough. Citrus notes are sticking out a lot with accent on orange and banana. Round texture, sugars are very well balanced and are long lasting in mouth. A very well balanced beer.

Maddog (392) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2012
What a great concept. Drinking the Schneider label Weiss from a bottle so I’m assuming it has been dry hopped with Hallertauer. Pours a very hazy light amber with aromas of fruity hops and an incredible flavor of classic yeasty German Hefe and fruity, spicy hops. I would love to try both together and experience the difference. I love this beer with its velvety mouth feel and citrus like finish. Delicious.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Aroma of crisp apples, champagne, and wheat. Pours hazy amber with a big ol head. Taste is interestingly mixed with floral, something like cleaning supplies, and a hint of rotten apples. Intense mouthfeel. I’m not a big fan.

julieimagery (182) - Coconut creek, Florida, USA - MAY 28, 2012
The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of wheat, yeast and coriander, leading to a dry hop finish. Pretty good, don’t know if I’d buy it again, doesn’t have enough caramel and malts for my palate.

Boutip (4701) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dry hoppy notes with some citrus notes with a heavy side of wheat malt with light residual sugar notes. Taste is a good mix between a solid wheat malt backbone with light residual sugar which are balanced by some pretty dry hoppy notes with light citrus undertones. Body is full with limited filtration and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Very solid and unique offering. I would definitely like to try again.

RamyG4 (320) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle. Hazy, unclear golden-yellow beer with a very big off-white head. Aroma is wheat, honey, caramel, citrus, tropical fruits. Taste is sweet, with a good amount of spice, and a lot of alcohol. Finish is dry, alcoholic. Medium bodied, well carbonated. Not bad, but the alcohol is too present for me.

TURDFERGUSON (3951) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2012
Sampled this multiple times, draft and bottle. Not really my style of beer but it is pretty well made. Fairly hoppy when fresh, banana, sweet malts. A little booze in the finish.
