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.”

Draught. Growler filled at Superstar Beverage in Huntington, NY. They had a tough time filling the growler becuase the head was so lively. It never did fill completely. Pours a hazy yellow-gold with a thin white head (I think the head would have been thicker but for the filling problem at the growler station) that eventually faded to a thin white film that left light lacing on the glass. Strong aroma of lemons, wheat, some banana, and cloves. The lemon citrus was less noticeable in the flavor, while the wheat and cloves were more pronounced. Cloves were also present along with some black pepper. Light bitterness at the finish. This was a very different and very enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 [draught @ Sunset Grill] Cloudy yellow color. Strong bubblegum aroma, with plenty of citrus hop character. Very interesting flavors, sweet wheat and banana. Impressive hop bitterness. Overall, very interesting and tasty stuff.

Hazy yellow with huge white head. Intense hop and spice aroma is strong enough to make me cough, but also has delicate pineapple undertones. Taste is intense as well, and singes my palate with cloves and massive amounts of resinous dry hops. Vastly different from the Schneider version.

The Weisse part really works, with familiar clove and banana, but clashes with the assertive nature of the hops. The amount of hop presence is part of the problem here; the type of hops is another. I’m sure my personal preference is another. Still, I have to hand it to Mr Oliver to get Schneider to participate in a great experiment.

Pleasant surprise at Brewgrass 2007. Poured a cloudy straw color with a thick off-white head. A ton of clove and citrus in the aroma with a complimentary hop aroma - not like a Houblon mind you, but this wasn’t the intent judging from the description. Pretty interesting taste. Light malt with classic clove and pepper taste, but citric hop on the finish. A very different direction than the hoppy belgians - and hopping a weizenbock seems less of a stretch than hopping a tripel/Belgian. Nonetheless, this was a distinct brew and one I had the dumb luck to run into.

Sampled at the 2007 BrewGrass Festival. Pours hazy straw-onion skin color with a HUGH frothy white head. Aroma was very pleasing with grasses, fresh light citrus, hints of herb and yeast. Well balanced flavor! Just WOW! I really did not have the words for this one and it was early in the festival. Grassy, light caramel or fruit and wheat grains, citrus, yeast, spice. Creamy full mouth feel. I really wanted to drink it all day. This was the surprise of the day for me and it blew me away. I may have over rated this a bit but I just could not believe that I liked this style so much. The best wheat beer I’ve ever had.

this was a surprise at the brewgrass, and I was excited to see it. pours a partly cloudy clean gold with full fluffy head. hoppy bitter presence. smooth and wheaty, full mouthfeel, better than the schneider, I like much.
