During a meeting of brewing artists in London, Georg VI. Schneider and his friend Alistar had the unique idea of uniting both the English porter and the Bavarian wheat beer styles... A thought turned into reality and Schneider Weisse’s newest TAP X ’Meine Porter Weisse’, was born! TAP X ’Meine Porter Weisse’ is a singularly stunning new creation which expertly showcases the depths of the range these two heavyweights of beer, when tapped into, then offer. For the creation of the new TAPX 2014, George Schneider drew inspiration from some of his English brewing colleagues, “If you intensively busy yourself with the history of porter, closely examine its aroma profile and compare it to a classic wheat beer, you’ll soon realize that there is a basis for the development of an expressive character on this union”, says Schneider Weisse brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler, when he explains the emergence of this new TAPX. “A historically bold but in taste ultimately a very appropriate combination of two wayward beer styles,”Drexler concludes. TAPX Meine Porter Weisse shimmers ebony-colored in your glass, crowed with a fine-pored, creamy head. Hints of chocolate and coffee come to your mind. The roasting flavors flatter your palate and award the beer with fine bitterness. A pleasantly dry mouthfeel completes this enjoyment. The complex aroma profile is the expression of a successful association of these contrasting beer styles. Georg Schneider himself gives us some of his own suggestions for possible food pairings with the new TAP X: „Personally, I’ve been enjoying the pairing of our TAPX ’Meine Porter Weisse’ most with hefty sausages or smoked bacon...it is then, when some wonderful memories of ’evenings at the pub’ back in London, arise.”

Blueshawk (412) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 14, 2016
- schöne dunkelbraune Farbe - starke Schaumbildung welche dann relativ schnell zerfällt - geruchstechnisch findet man leichte Frucht- bzw. Rauch- aromen - geschmacklich setzt sich dies dann auch fort, wobei dann doch das Porter etwas die Oberhand gewinnt - im Abgang hat man dann endgültig mehr das Gefühl ein Porter zu trinken Fazit: Interessantes und gutes Hybrid-Bier

Zlotta (2270) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2016
0.75 l bottle from ’REWE Budnik & Homberg’, 2014 vintage, best before January 2016. Clear, dark ruby with a large, dense, almost stable, beige head. Sweetish, malty and fruity aroma of raisins, prunes, caramel, molasses and a touch of roast. Sweet, malty, fruity and a little yeasty taste of raisins, prunes, caramel, candied cherries, molasses and some port, followed by a medium long, minimally bitter, vinous, slightly roasty and a bit warming-alcoholic finish with notes of dark chocolate, coffee and port. Medium body, slightly creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, soft to average carbonation. Not quite what I expected, it’s not as chocolaty or coffeish as I would have thought, but it’s very fruity and port-like (already). High complexity, well-balanced, could only have a bit more body. Still good though, very unique beer!

Bottle at home from drinkstore
Big, rich full bodied beer, moderate carbonation, weisse like spicey aroma with a hint of chocolate. Taste wise its a lot more porter than weisse - toasty, roasty barley, cocoa, dry and earthy, quite rich and aventinus like at times but I’d have liked more if the weisse character to come through in flavour.

Thanks to Travlr! Sampled draft @ ’cause BEER loves FOOD. Black, little tanned head. Nose is werid mushroom roast, sugar, umami, candy, herbal, thick syrupy qualities. Taste is strangely vegetable, molasses, bark, pectin, blue grape syrup, sugar, roots, sugar, herbal syrup. Low molasses, sugar, syrup body. Strange brew but not without merits. Interesting experiment.
