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.

Southern Tier - Imperial Gemini

Pours a slightly cloudy peach colour with a full creamy and lasting off white head.
Aroma of fruit, berries and peach. Hints of pine and grapefruit with a touch of earth.
Feel is nice and full, creamy and rich.
Taste is lovely. A solid slightly sweet malt base with a touch of chocolate and malted milk. Then comes a fresh and bright citrus hop taste, lot's of grapefruit and pine resin. Hints of peach and dark berries are all through the taste.
The finish is a bit dry, the grapefruit and pine linger nicely and the light sweet notes remain but my mouth is left clean and ready for another sip.
A very nice beer, the high alcohol content can be dangerous in this one because it is not noticeable.
I like it a lot. Glad I have more tucked away.

Alright brain, I don't like you and you don't like me, so just get me through this exam so I can go back to killing you slowly with beer.
