trevor211 (1421) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2008
This beer looks like unfiltered cider, or creamed honey. The head is fizzy and dissipates quickly, and there’s a *ton* of stuff floating in it. Very mild aroma with crisp apples, cardamom and a bit of bubble gum. Flavor is (thankfully) not as sweet as a lot of weisse beers - no doubt partially thanks to the hops. Still sweet, with a bit of banana and fresh apple, yeast and hops. Good, but not something I’d have regularly.

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a fluffy white head. Hoppy aroma, floral and grass, with green apple and some background spice. The flavor is very fresh and floral hoppy, with grass, citrus fruits, green apple, yeast, and clove spicyness. Nice dry hoppy finish. Very good.

Suttree (5543) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Very cloudy orange, sizey, rocky white head. Wheaty, bubbleguma and banana aroma, with some herbal notes mixed in, too. Nicely (and oddly) savory flavor, with herbal notes being front and center. Nice dryish finish.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Poured a very cloudy orangeish amber with a tall fluffy white head. Sweet aroma of banana and clove, estery, with some notes of piney hops. Flavor is a balance between sweet and dry with flavors of the banana and clove coming through, backed up by pine and grapefruit rind hops. Overall much more estery than the Brooklyn counterpart with less hops emphasis and more balance. In the end, this one does indeed have more of a German taste to it, while Brooklyn’s tasted more like an American take on a German style. I probably enjoyed the American version more, but both are fantastic beers.

unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - SEP 20, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2008 Draft at BSP. pours hazy gold, white foamy head. I thought it would be darker, as most beer in this style are DARK. Sweet wheat, sugar, floral hops, delicious. Lucous legs running down the long .5L Schneider glass. Sweet malt, calming bitterness adds the ultimate marriage of balance. Hints of banana flavor followed by bitterness. Aroma of Amarillo and Hallertauer hops. Spectacular! American style highly hopped, high bitterness in a wonderfully made German style wheat masterpiece. whoo! Tasty. Big abv definitely adds to the finish. 8,5,8,5,18

50cl bottle. My first IPA-weizenbock hybrid. I can imagine this beer blowing minds over in Germany; they probably either hate it or think its the best innovation in brewing since the pilsner. Anyway, lots of yeast sludge going on, almost chunky, but it works here. Huge tropical smoothie and spicy herbal hop aroma. Amazing how the tropical notes mix with the more spicy notes that I usually associate with german hops. There is a hint of banana, but the dry-hopping dominates any yeast aromas. The flavor is also very hop-dominated, with a firm hef malt backbone. The traditional bavarian hefewiesse yeast flavors get lost in the cascade of spicy and tropical hops. This really tastes like a hef-IPA. Nothing like any weizenbock that I’;ve had before. I feel bad for liking this so much, because it seems like such a bastardization of tradition, but if you like hefs and IPAs, this is an awesome combination. Where the rich flavors of a more typical weizenbock might tire after a glass, the hops in this beer just draw you back for more.

hazy caramel a pour with a huge thick off white head. Really nice aroma, a great mix of pungent hops, wheat, roasty wheat, and some subtle caramel. The hops really come through in the flavor, when the beer was cold the hops were quite citric and were mingling very nicely with the banana, caramel, and bubblegum ester, it’s so nice! But as the beer warms the hops take over, and are flooding my taste buds with a soapy hoppy mess of an aftertaste. All in all thought much better than the Brooklyn version, the alcohol is well hidden in the Schneider version, its not an alcohol bomb like i thought the Brooklyn version was.

EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Opaque orange-yellow pour with lots of stuff floating around. Like pulpy grapefruit juice Nice white head. Fruity aroma with bananas and apples. Cloves and spices. Very floral with additional malt notes. Very flavorful. Malty backbone with a lots of woody citrus. Very dry with a touch of sourness. Some spice cloves and yeast and a little bit of creamy chocolate throughout. A touch of hops to finish. Very complex and tasty. Hides the alcohol very well.

500 ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy off white head with amazing retention. The aroma is herbal, fruity (citrus and banana), spicy, and light malt. The flavor is fruity (same as the nose), malty, light herbal, light yeast, and a mildly bitter finish. Although not a style I generally drink, I found this to be interesting and mostly enjoyable. Very smooth drinking with a light/medium mouthfeel.

Meikman (5) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 12, 2008 does not count
500ml bottle. (My bottle does not have the Brooklyn logo, but other than that the label is identical.) Super fizzy and opaque. Visible bits of yeast. Lace is practically permanent. Nose is mostly lemon and alcohol. Has a nice bitter finish.
