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.”

On tap at Zeno’s Pub - State College, PA. Gentle, blossoming aroma with figs, asian pear, banana cream and almond bits. Curbed with a tangy edge of plant material. A mid-clouded deep straw-gold, with a rocky white foam above. Flavor flows forth with rich, resplendent qualities. There’s a bright, fresh, sweet sugar, clean and alive. Banana flesh mingles in with a sudden burst of hops, that just work so well with the phenolics of the style. These wild, tangly high hops play off the active, bubbly esters and phenols for a fun interplay of mid-colored fruits, chesnuts and candy. This mix brews a certain note of spicy, sweet olive flesh, cured well and nostril pleasing. Backs out with fresh, clean yeast flavor and a delectable smack of lemon and currant hops. Juicy, vibrant and perfectly brewed. Alcohol only adding complexity and depth. Really well attenuated for no stickiness and refreshing dryness. Maybe paler and not nearly as caramelized as I would expect from the style in that manner, but so brilliant in balance, build and execution. Plays more like an Imperial Hefe. Great stuff!

Turbid medium golden color with small white head. Aroma is citric, spicy, and fruity. Medium, somewhat fizzy palate offering flavors of citrus, clovey spice, some banana and apricot, with a lot of cmplexity.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Cloudy golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is fresh and citrusy with some banana, clove, spice and wheat detectable. Taste has a good amount of wheat in it with some noticeable citrus hop action going on. Lots of citrusy-spice wheat flavor with a tingly mouthfeel. Better than the German version, but still not the greatest, especially if they insist on calling it a Weizen Bock.

UPDATED: OCT 15, 2007 Keg. Courtesy Degarth. Pours a cloudy dark yellow color with a big, foamy, off white head. Smells of spicy citrus, some wheat, fruits, and other spices. The flavor is pretty creamy on the palate. Very spicy taste, almost overdone in my opinion. Didnt really get much of the clove or banana I usually do in this style, but was just attacked by peppery spice. Definitely needed more balance to it, and certainly maybe some more bock characters as well, if this is what they are classifying it as. I liked the Schneider version better, but thats no surprise to me.

My favorite beer the German beer fest. This combines the bitterness of an IPA with the sweet and refreshingness of wheat. reminds me of the first time they mixed peanut butter with jelly.

Poured a hazy orange golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas, toffee, vanilla, floral hops, pine, citrus, and light alcohol as well. Taste of more banana and clove, with resiny pine, citrus fruits, bitter hops and moderate alcohol in the finish. Couldn’t tell much difference from the Schneider, except it was pinier with just a tad thinner mouthfeel.

Rich orange color with super nice fluffy delicious head. Awesome malt hop aroma with some bread. Even smells smooth. Taste like cream of wheat and malty goodness. A little alcohol as well. Looks almost Nitro pour but regular tap. Heavy towards the end. Over 20oz pour.
