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.

Christoffel Dry Hopped Nobel

Cloudy Pale yellow beer with a huge and rocky white head.
Aroma is slightly sour with pine and citrus.
Feel is quite creamy and full.
Taste is a very pleasant surprise.
Lots of mouth drying hops with pine and grapefruit tastes. From the colour I was expecting something close to a wheat beer but this is NOT a wheat beer. Tastes are all along the barley malt side with a lot of gentle hops. Not as brash as some North American hoppy beers but this is getting very close, I think the main difference has to do with the variety of hops used more than the quantity or timing.
As I sip at this I am finding a lot of different flavours, from pineapple to earth to honey, even a hint of banana from the yeast.
I could drink this regularly and be a very happy guy.
