4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer began with a vigorous, fluffy white head on top of a VERY cloudy body of medium gold colour. The aroma was most enjoyable, even to my imperfect nose, with grassy and hoppy scents. Taste was delicious; it tasted like "more", and the mouthfeel had a damned good bite to it. Good finish, too. Excellent beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap, Wurstkuche. Pour is murky orange haze, with a below-average head size (for a wheat beer). Aroma, however, is sublime: fresh floral “west coast” hops, with a hint of lemon-lime zest and herbs. All anchored firmly by wheat and yeast notes. Flavor starts with an assertive hop bite suggesting tangerine, balanced in the middle by textured wheat and other grain. Finish puts a crisp and refreshing bitter touch on the traditional mildness of a hefeweizen. Palate is an interesting sensation of smooth fullness matched with effervescence, which acts to lighten it. All in all, this was an absolutely delicious hybrid drink, easily better than the previous Brooklyn-Schneider, and an unquestioned success.

On tap at The Rover, Göteborg, as Schneider & Brooklyn Hopfen Weisse. ABV was 8.2%. Deep golden to amber colour, hazy. Moderate creamy head. Hoppy sweetish aroma with notes of ripe berries. The flavour is sweet, hoppy and alcoholic - too sweet and alcoholic for me. Less bitter than expected.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours an average sized (for a Hefeweizen), fluffy, white, lasting head. Clear, deep golden body with abundant yeast clouds and active C02 bubbles. Looks fabulous! Pleasant aroma of wheat malt and spicy, herbal noble hops. Looks like they dry-hopped with Hallertauer. A little bit of Bavarian countryside grass. My only knock on the aroma is the presence of alcohol. Smells a tad boozy. Taste is first and foremost dominated by the yeast - dough, banana, a touch of bubble gum, clove, and vanilla. Some citrus is also present in the flavor profile. Like the aroma, my one gripe with the flavor is the boozy alcohol. Not as bad as some 8%+ beers fall victim to, but still more than necessary. Medium-light, creamy body with lively carbonation and a somewhat bitter finish. Balanced though. Overall a really good pale Weizenbock that could be stellar if the booziness were diminished. I don’t think it necessarily needs to have less alcohol, but cooler fermentation temperatures would possibly help.

The Brooklyn version was better, but this is one of my favorite light-colored wheat beers ever nonetheless.
