This unique beer is the result of the long friendship of Schneider brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler and Brooklyn brewmaster Garrett Oliver. The two brewmasters feel that Schneider-Brooklyner Hopfen-Weisse represents the quality, tradition and terroir of the Bavarian Hallertauer hop region paired with the innovation and creative energy for which Brooklyn is famous. The brewers at The Brooklyn Brewery eagerly await the July visit of Hans-Peter Drexler, when they will create Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse in Brooklyn. This will be a very similar beer, fermented with the Schneider yeast, but it will be dry-hopped with American hops selected by Hans-Peter Drexler.
Appearance: Hazy deep gold with hints of red. Very thick white foam.
Aroma: Intense floral and citrus hop character with banana overtones and slight clove.
Flavor: Focused, snappy bitterness followed by a burst of sweet fruit. Fruit and hop flavors through the center, refreshing wheat acidity, and effusive hop flavors. The finish is semi-dry and clean with hop flavors lingering.
