G. Schneider & Sohn - Hopfen Weisse

Pours a hazy straw colour with a thick and lasting white head.
Aroma is spicy with bananas and citrus.
Feel is rich and creamy.
The tastes are quite different for a weissen, a strong note of bitter grapefruit citrus mixed with light spices and bananas lays over some berry and bread. The finish is moderately earthy with a lasting grapefruit rind bitterness.
It is certainly a refreshing beer, it takes a few sips to get used to the grapefruit and earth notes but it worth persevering for.
Apparently Schneider's brewmasters teamed up with Garret Oliver (of Brooklyn Brewery fame) to create this and the North American influence is certainly noticeable in the hop profile.

G. Schneider & Sohn - Hopfen Weisse

Pours a light orange color with a clumpy long lasting head.
Lots of spices, banana and a hint of citrus in the aroma.
Mouth feel is full, rich and creamy.
Lots of citrus and earthiness in this one. Strong grapefruit bite that is very refreshing. The creaminess and the complex flavors make this one to buy again and again.

Beer Quote of the day

Rugby is great. The players don't wear helmets or padding; they just beat the living daylights out of each other and then go for a beer. I love that.

— Joe Theismann

(Hmmm! Go for a beer. Yup, forget the rest.)
