COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 Brewmaster’s 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.”

750 ml bottle (the first 750 of a German-style beer I’ve seen?) from Richmond Beverage in Richmond, VT (May 2008) served near cellar temperature once the head finally dissipated from a Ramstein glass, after an entire bottle of wine and a big shot of bourbon, so this reivew is gonna suck. Bite me. Pours a hazy dull brass-bronze with a massive gout of head that refuses to disappear for several minutes living a bit of chunky lacing as it finally dies....thick caramelized bananas in the nose, light spices, vanilla syrup and a bit of bourbon, very sweet.....full and luscious mouthfeel, lightly alcoholic, quite malty and rich with caramelization dominant, a bit of woody bitterness towards the finish, little in the way of wheaty tartness though it’s there if you look for it, particularly at the end when it’s warmed a bit....not a patch on Plank or Alesmith, but eminently drinkable, if a bit pretentious and pricey in its packaging.

From May 2008 I got this bottle in a trade with nutbrown and seeing as I really flipped(a good thing) when I had a few samples at last year's GABF, boy am I pleased. Thanks Alan! It pours from the caged and corked, very good looking 750ml bottle a hazy(turns cloudy after the initial pour) orange gold with a 3 finger head of ever rising foam..ok, so I had to eat some of the foam before I could actually hold up the glass and look at it but hey, I don't mind suffering through that. Anywho, this puppy has a lot of bubbly action going on and there's a lot of sticky lacing. The nose gives me big notes of wheat, yeast, clove, banana, spice, and hops. It just smells *that* damn good. First sip brings back the memories of the small samples I had...Wheat working in perfect unison with hops. Man. Nice spice here as well with a flavourful but not overdone presence of clove, good banana flavour, yeast, and again, the hoppy goodness meshes so darn well. This is so drinkable but I have to watch out as this isn't exactly a lightweight when it comes to the abv and I don't want my judgement being impaired by drinking it too quickly. Nice medium mouthfeel here, and though the carbonation looks spritzy in the glass, it isn't highly carbonated at all. Gotta love these bottle conditioned beers. It finishes with a nice mix of wheat and lemon zest that demands that I take another sip. Wow. What a brew!! Btw, to clarify my previous remark, there is no sign of the alcohol in the taste and there's just some slight warming after the swallow. Bottom line: This is my favourite Brooklyn brew to date and it's going to take some doing to knock it off its perch. A big "Thank You" goes out to Brooklyn for brewing this wonderful nectar and to nutbrown, again, for sending this bottle my way. Highly recommended to the nth degree!

The aroma is hops, floral/citrus with a hint of malt. Pours a dark copper/orange with big off white head mostly diminishing very good lacing. The taste is umami/bitter. The body is meium/full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Good!!

This is extremely similar to the regular Schneider weisse hopfenweisse. And like that beer, this one is also incredible. I would say the inherent difference is probably in the hops- the American hops gives this beer a subtle bitter tartness as opposed to the more sweet tastes in the hopfenweisse. Both beers are highly complex with amazing aromas, tastes, and palates. If this is near me, I’ll be drinking it!!!! Such a great beer!

Draft at some place in New Haven with Kevin and Pat, summer 2012. Bottles from the Bier Stein at various times before that. From before I was rating beers, but this one is maybe my all time favorite. Refreshing, crisp, complex, well-balanced, and all that you could want from the style, while maintaining a unique twist. The Schnieider version is impressive, yes, a lovely consolation prize, but this one is the real deal. Sigh...

It has a deep hazy orange colored body with lots of visible carbonation. The head is off white in color, tall, thick and creamy. The head is long lasting and makes lots of slick lacing on the glass. It has a light pleasant aroma of wheat, a light wisp of clove, subtle fruity yeast and just a very subtle hint of smokiness. The flavor starts with a big tangy wheat and grain base that adds fruity and spicy yeast notes of banana and clove as well as some citrus notes from the hops. The hops really stand out in the finish which becomes dry and has solid bitterness for the style. It has a full body and the texture is thick and chewy with a heavy well rounded mouth feel. Its carbonation is very active and cleansing on the palate.

An aroma of passion fruit, and bitter oregano, and sweet vanilla. Appears cloudy gold with a big frothy white heaf and some lace. Tastes of sweet wheat followed by bitter hay, a slight sweet grape. Palate is thick and filling. Overall, good.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014 Bottle. Opaque dark gold. Great lingering head. Extremely floral nose. Citrusy, slightly floral taste, almost raisin like sweetness from the ABV. Like an IPA more than a Dunkel!
