4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I get a bit fed up with beer and food matching what i tend to enjoy and remember more is beer and situation or movie matches....i drunk this while watching a re-run of the Goonies on TV and what a fantastic pairing! The beer had a creamy and herbal palate that seemed to match the overtones of pirate buried treasure well. On the nose it was all cloves and nutmeg that i think went fantastically well with the 80’s wardrobe that the heroes and heroines were wearing. it didn’t look very good in the glass but that’s ok because neither does the cast! To top off a fantastic matched with a fantastic movie!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500mL bottle. Slightly different label than that in the picture. Pours a hazy, deep gold/rust color with a HUGE and fluffy light-tan head. A rich, semi-floral, tropical fruit aroma that features some pineapple, mango, and banana scents in addition to some apricots, grapefruits, orange peels, lemons, coriander, clove, and some crisp wheatiness in the background. Mild vanilla comes through as it warms. Goes down medium-bodied and pretty creamy. The flavor starts off with a yeasty, fruity tanginess. Bananas and spices in the transition. Some crisp, drying wheatiness at the very end. Vanilla and hints of warming alcohol throughout. Great brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden colour with dense medium white head. Aroma grass, citrus, hoppy and weak notes of banana. Taste hopps, bananas and some exotic fruits. A littie hopp bite in the finish. A nice beer, but I frankly don´´ t think these hopp experiments make the weizen bocks better than the original ones.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse is a very cloudy dull gold beer with a thin, dense, white head that has good lacing. It has a fresh, fruity, spicy aroma with notes of lemon, orange, coriander and banana/clove. It is medium bodied; smooth and lively with a clean finish. It has a full, fruity wheat flavor with lots of spice. It’s chai-like. It’s a little sweet, a little bitter and incredibly drinkable-- even at 8.5% ABV-- Look out!

500 ml bottle shared by Lubiere (merci!), served cold in a goblet. MA06/09.
App.: Dirty orange-gold with lots of yeast flecks, ring of white head.
Aroma: Pine, orange peel, pineapple, tropical fruits, tangy mango, apricot, a wicked fruit salad with hop backing.
Palate: Medium body, fairly full but gentle effervescence.
Flav.: Lots of the esters but also some great pine/resin/earthy hops, spiciness (coriander), slightly wooden, grapefruit; off-dry and so-so bitterness with a pleasant fruity-malt finish.
An absolute masterpiece, I love this beer.

Draught@Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen. A foggy orangey-golden body, coated by a thin and dense offwhite head. Delicious, fresh hop aroma; sweet citrus, mango, apricot, flowers and grass, backed by a crisp wheat scent. Taste has a fine citric fruitiness, a clean and medium sweet wheat character. Notes of honey and fine fruity hoppiness. Well-bodied, smooth and extremely inviting. Amazing stuff!
