COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.”

Donkerbruin, bijna zwart, bier met rode gloed. Schuimkraag verdwijnt snel. Aroma van mout, koffie, rozijn, vanille. Smaak is bitter, begint ook licht zoet en evolueert naar zuur. Volle body, fijne film, zacht en licht tintelend.

Negra com ótima formação de espuma marrom de média densidade e duração. Notas de malte tostado, cravo, nuances frutados e boa presença de lúpulo. Corpo médio com final longo, amadeirado e com amargor e dulçor em harmonia

NosirIwont (2203) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle. 7.0%. Best before 02.01.16; 1 month past. Pours a dense, dark reddish brown with a fluffy, tan head. Heavy, malty and dark fruit aroma; plums, light raisins, and with a light sour overtone. Hints of pepper as it warms. Flavour is sweet with a sugary hint. Dark fruits, plums. Remote note of pepper. Bitter finish, with a light alcohol burn, lingering, followed by a grassy/apple note. Juicy hint as it warms. A wee bit too much carbonation. Overall pretty good and well-balanced. 02.02.16.

Beer5000 (5470) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2016
750 ml well stored bottle consumed January 2015. Dark brown to black body with a fair beige head. Nice aroma of softly roasted dark malt, caramel, dry fruit and some yeast. Flavor has as expected both elements from a roasted porter and dunkelweisse. Sweet, dark, light roasted malt, dark chocolate, some coffee, caramel, dry fruit, wheat and bubblegum yeast flavor. Moderate in bitterness and otherwise really smooth. Fine balanced full bodied with a long lasting delicious aftertaste. A really nice one.

2014 Bottle. Smooth malty caramel in the beginning. Easy to drink, soft and roasted. Fresh with a dry chocolate smooth body. Easy to drink with a nice intense slightly sourish chocolate yeasty ending. Great dark chocolate stuff.

Draught @ Drinkers Pub (Eindhoven). Chocolate and coffee aroma. Rich taste of aforementioned flavours, but with a freshness of Weiss beer. Subtle aftertaste.

geologyguy (1165) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2016
pours with large head, smells like a lighter beer than it looks...medium dark malt smell, taste is smooth maltiness, can’t taste much in the way of hops, one dimentional malt taste though... Nothing exciting...straightforward

750ml bottle - thanks tiong and the rest of the posse!
I can get a lovely tight persistent head on this from the longer pour, and it’s a beautiful dark colour, basically black. Aroma is banana strings, toffee and vanilla. Rich malty body, wheaty, banana, sweetish, some toffee. Fullish. Finish a bit drying. Didn’t quite deliver what it promised in the first few seconds, but still decent.

750 ml bottles. 2014 vintage. Courtesy of tiong. Black color with a small light tan head. Mild aroma of wheat, sweetness and malt. Wheat, banana, toffee, yeast, some unfreshness and sweet malt in the aroma. Porter Weisse? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
