3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very obviously a Schneider, with intense lemon, clove, and pepper in the nose and in the flavor. Hazy gold, huge head, good lacing. No surprise in the intense clove and pepper and citrus in the taste, although the bite was delightfully extreme. Great surprise was the pronounced hoppiness and the bitter finish. I need another to calibrate my ranking, but on a first try this was lovely.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Potent pine hops aroma with some clove and notes of ginger and lemon and a little bit of vitamin. Murky light yellowish brown with a big rocky head that drops to a thick, bubbly cover that clings to the glass. Smooth, yet strong flavour of citrus hops with some pine, corriander. Significant sweetness that is balanced by an appropriate amount of bitterness which is unusual for this style (of course this beer is not really in any style). Warm with alcohol, but no ethanol flavour. Salty. Full body, high carbonation, lingering hops flavour.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from PP Bottle Shop. Pours a murky dull orange yellow hue with modest head. Nose is pine resin with a touch of bubblegum yeast, caramel, light fruits (pears, apricots), citrus, and spice. Taste is sweet fruits with a flavorful hop and spice backbone, sweet caramel malts and yeast hit midway along with fruit syrup, finishes drying with a hint of alcohol warming and pepper spice. Medium-bodied with smooth creamy texture and moderate carbonation. A well-balanced variant of a wheat, bursting with amazing aromas, hops accentuate the fruits and yeast, very impressive!

Mmm. Lots of wheat, fruit, citrus. This feels very traditional and much better than your average American. Well balanced and tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Utobeer. Deep golden in colour with a huge, rocky white head. Aroma of yeast, plenty of spice including cloves and a hint of coriander, lemon and floral hops. Flavour was sweet, with some graininess, citrus fruit and plenty of hops, giving a hint of pine. Plenty of warming alcohol in the finish. An unusual take on wheat beer which was thoroughly enjoying.

Pours foggy pale golden orange with decent off white head. The nose is subtly sweet and fruit with a floral hop profile. The flavor is quite the same, and very easy drinking.
