3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from John’s Grocery in Iowa City. Poured with a rich, hazy gold body. The head was massive and slightly off white. The aroma reminds me of a tropical mixed drink and is an interesting mix of banana and pineapple. There is also a hint of cinnamon. The taste is dominated by herbal character with lots of clove and cinnamon spice. There is also a mild note of canned peaches. The finish is soapy with raw hops. I wanted to like this beer and really looked forward to trying this one, however, I am not happy with the result. The European style noble hops failed for my tastes. This would have been better with more citrus tasting American hops. I still respect Schneider and Garrett Oliver, and I hope future collaborations are better than this one.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, batch 1. Slightly lactic, kind of euro-hoppy nose. I take it back... VERY lactic. Big head on the pour. Slightly crisp, exotic fruit flavor, with a bit of passionfruit, mango... light hops in the finish, and wheat throughout. Slighty hot palate, not enough carbonation for the style. I appreciate the effort on this, and it’s nice to drink, but I don’t really like it much.

Bottle @ Spuyten Dyuvil. Super cool bottle that hypridizes a german bottle with brooklyn’s logo. Pours cloudy pale orange with a 1 finger off white head. The nose is crisp hoppy and damn fresh. The taste is amazing, it combo is really pretty unique, wheat yes, hoppy yes, and it works. The palate is prickly on the tongue but smooth. Nice

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy orange with biggish white head. Aroma is spicy with yeast and corriander, and smell s a bit cidery. Taste is oddly fleeting, and cleanly departs the palate almost instantly, leaving only the faintest hint of hop and banana to ripple over the tongue. $3/500ml edit: the brackish yeast layer on bottom makes it like drinking two different beers. More bitter, more flavor... nice surprise.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: This looks like murcky cider with a ginormous fluffy head. As the head slowly recedes, notes of wildflower honey, sweet pine, rose petals and spicey alcohol emerge. The dryhopping adds a nice complexity to the style. Very delicate, but loaded with dimension. Very soft carbonation and lots of wheat create a lush mouthfeel. The body is loaded with esthery fruits and creamy caramel malts. Very nice.
