This Beer is served on DRAFT and in 750ml BROOKLYN bottles.
In May 2007, Garrett Oliver traveled to the 400 yr-old Schneider brewery in Kelheim, Germany, to brew Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse. This was dry-hopped with the local Hallertauer Saphir hop variety. In July, Drexler brought his yeast to Brooklyn and brewed Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse, choosing the American Amarillo and Palisade varieties for the dry-hopping. Now you can taste the result, the latest beer in our Brewmasters Reserve series. The beer has a full orange color and the aromatics pair the banana and clove notes from the Schneider yeast with the mango and citrus qualities of the hops. The bitterness is robust but balanced, and the beer has a clean, hoppy finish.
Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse pairs well with Caribbean seafood preparations, crab cakes, jerk chicken, Thai cuisine, Szechuan cooking and many Mexican dishes.

Ungstrup (35695) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2008
GABF 2007. A hazy yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet and very spicy - especially coriander, but also with a strong note of alcohol - very much like Achouffes Double IPA. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of wheat and coriander, leading to a dry wheaty finish. The alcohol warms the cheeks.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2012 Bottle at home ... Real glad to see this one in Cornelius all be it at 12.50... amber ... sweet pine fruit nose little yeast ... big in face flavour ... some candi suger ... big pine hop ... refreshing ... citrus ... orange ... peach ... light lemon...cuts through the curry nicly ...3.9

ok on to side by side with its Brother ... more orangy amber ... nose is brighter and more hoppy yeast and pine hop is much more noticible ... sharper edge bit more bitter ... but seems a bit shalower... lots of pine present...although it doesnt seem to have the depth of its brother it just seems to have a bit more kick... 3.8
