500ml brown bottle from The Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours a murky golden yellow body with a good inch of off-white head. Smells sweet and phenolic - with banana, nut, spice, citrus, and malt all playing big roles. Tastes very complex, sweet, spicy, grassy, malty... Nut, banana, lemon, spices, orange, hints of caramel malt... More hoppy than a lot of examples of the style Iíve tried, but only to balance the flavor out. Other than a slight hop flavor that lingers, the finish is otherwise fairly clean and rather dry. Rich full mouthfeel, yet ample carbonation and no alcohol flavor or warming makes this beer an easier drinker than expected. Wow, this beer is good. Extremely flavorful, complex, balanced and very drinkable. Iíll definitely be snagging a few bottles of this again, not only to compare to the Brooklyner-Schneider version, but also to see how it ages over the next few months (if I can wait that long!)

My Bottom Line:
An impressive equilibrum of herbal, spicy hoppiness, citrusy wheat, and banana/peach esters thrives throughout this marvelous hybrid of a Weizenbock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy cumulus of a head lingers atop the amber-infused golden (before the complete yeast pour, of course).
-Although the body is nourishing, it remains airy and amazingly drinkable for its size.
-There is no sign of the abv in the flavor profile.
-The ending is rather soft, offering mild leafy hop bitterness and milky, earthy yeastiness.
-The harmless yet furious tingling of a carbonation sure is peculiar, but it works perfectly.
-I donít understand how this German-brewed version can be so much cheaper than its Brooklyn-brewed compatriot.

500. Thanks, Skoi (and ACertain)! What a treat.
Pours hazy bright gold with a creamy and persistent platinum blonde head. Big sweet banana, clove, and peach nose. Plenty of creamy goodness on the body. More bananas, clove, and peach on the mid-palate. Sweet and creamy but still refreshing enough to drink in the summer heat. Awesome.

A very interesting beer- a traditional wheat beer but very strong! It is a little sweeter than your usual weizen bock, but the over 8% alcohol content is well cloaked. Tasty!

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2008 Bottle thanks to acertain!!! Overall I was impressed. Those beautiful banana clove notes I love so well from the regular Scheider exist alongside an amazing, thick, and smooth malty body. Spices are a bit amped, and goes well. Alcohol is not detectable. Would love to get my hands on another!

Poured a really hazy orange yellow with a profuse creamy white head. The nose was really citrusy, lots of sweet citrusy hops, some wheat in the background and very mild banana. The aroma profile of a wheat beer is an easy one for the hops to dominate as they do in this. The flavor is citrusy and waxy, light bitterness, mild alcohol. Mouthfeel is full and smooth from the wheat, a decent amount of carbonation, and a waxy feel. Finishes citrusy and bitter and then fades to wheat and banana, a little warmth comes out as well. The wheat is the most prominent in the finish.

The color was a very cloudy orange/yellow. The head was creamy, off-white, and laced some. The aroma was wheat, sweet, and citrisy hops. The flavor was wheat, citris hops, some spice, and alcohol. The palate was nicely carbonated. The finish was warm.

Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Standard hazy straw colored pour, with blooming white head. Nice sweet wheaty nose with assertive grassy/herbally hop presence. Flavor start with slight banana and clove components with a hint of vanilla. Hop character is bright and herballly, nice touch of grass and a hint of citrus. Hops check the esters and sweetness very well. Body is full and fluffy with sparkly almost champaign like carbonation. Some woody type notes on the finish. Very well crafted.

Bottle from Brawleys. I have been looking for this one for a really long time - and finally I found some. Pours out a yellowish orange color with a large white head on it. Smell is fruity, full of lemons, citrus, and some hops. Very pleasing. The taste is where this beer accels. This one is better than the other one, hands down. Tastes fruity, sweet, easy to drink, little hops, very smooth and refreshing on a hot summer day. Damn fine beer, do these guys make anything bad? I am not sure they do. Really good. Shoulda bought a case of this instead of other beers.
