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.”

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2010 What a fantastic brew. Great deep golden, traditional Weiss appearance and foamy head, but the fuller body and hop bite make this one of my favorites. I wish they sold this in a six pack.

750ml bottle from Porterhouse; Thanks a bunch Kevin; wish I asked you for two! Nose of flowery hops, yeasty wheat, cinnamon, and cloves; Hazy copper orange with a big, glass-lacing, pale yellow head; Flavor was light hop bitterness, spices, cloves, bananas, caramel, and yeastiness. Finish was lightly bitter hops and spices!! New #1!!!

Spectacular appearance. Beautiful foggy orange body and delicious creamy head. Attractively appetizing with a strong cool-whip like head. The body is just the same as the head only looks. Beautiful Banana and Clove of the standard Hefe, but a perceptional addition to the standard hefe. Hard citric punch to the back of the tongue.

Swirling, tempestuous activity in a Schneider Edel-Weisse glass... bright yellow brown body with a massive four-finger head--picture perfect... thick, uneven foam is left as tracing... the citrus and banana aromas are compounded by the spruce and pine accents... this promises to be complex and refreshing, if the smell is accurate...medium to full-bodied, light on the tongue but warm on the throat... the head softensits impact... a grainy texture is also noticeable by the third sip... unexpectedly, the combination of killer hops and mega wheat neither nullify nor mutate, but become congruous and complimentary in a delicious marigae... perhaps this one was a winner before the bottle hissed open, but with two brilliant breweries joining forces, the results are predictable and impeccable... cheers.

This is great! A bitter Weisse beer. Difficult to find in Europe. I liked it very much.

This is probably the best heffe I’ve ever had. Aromas of hops and citrus. Layers of citrus flavors. Overall not just a great heffe, but a great beer.

Wonderful Amarillo aroma. Pinapple and mandarins and mild pine. Fantastic round flavour with a cloves and banana finish. Great beer!
