Review – Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse
From B. United International Inc.(US Distributers of Schneider): Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse is a collaboration between brewmasters Hans-Peter Drexler of the Schneider Weissbier Brewery and Garrett Oliver of The Brooklyn Brewery. Now, once again, together they bring you a small batch of their joint creation, a pale weissbock robustly dry-hopped with the Hallertauer Saphir variety grown in the fields near the Schneider brewery. Hoppy, zesty and supremely refreshing, Schneider & Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse is a delicious blend of Bavarian craftsmanship and American ingenuity.
Appearance: Murky gold, almost pea soup green. Very cloudy with a 1 inch white head.
Aroma: Banana, clove, and latex.
Taste: Clove, coriander, spicy/bitter hops, pineapple and banana.
Mouthfeel: Thick and full bodied.
Overall: This brew tastes better than it smells. I like the tropical notes in the taste, it helps balance out that yeasty clove business going on. I can tell this is well crafted, but not my cup of…..beer.
