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.

Trafalgar Oak Aged Rye

A very thin and short lived white head on a pretty dark copper coloured beer.
The aroma is fairly faint, some malty sweetness, a hint of tannin, and a bit of sourness. Not unpleasant at all.

The feel is quite full, round, and creamy.
Taste is another thing.
I found this to be a fairly harsh and rough edged beer, although I found that it grew on me as I sipped at it.
There are flavours of nuts and grass which are quickly buried by a harsh dry bitterness which almost burns the tongue. The aftertaste is fairly sweet and grassy with hints of grapefruit citrus but which leaves a rough sensitive patch on the middle of my tongue.
The rye taste is present but is subtle and not pronounced.
As I said, some of the tastes grow on me but I can't get past the burnt tongue feel. It almost feels like an allergic reaction so maybe I am not being fair to this brew.
