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.

Aventinus Weizen Eisbock

Very dark brown with a thick clumpy tan colored head.
Aroma is spices and a hint of citrus with a slight mold hint.
Very creamy. The alcohol flavor is the most outstanding taste with this brew. Once I got past that it has a chocolate and coffee flavor with a hint of spices of some sort, (I can't define the individual spices), and a bit of raspberry as well as a pleasant earthy flavor. This is very good.
I've slagged German brews before this but if they have more like this I'll have to eat my words. Actually I'd rather drink them. (-:

Beer Quote of the day

We didn't have a garage to rehearse in. We had to aggravate the folks in the house. But I got a chance to play in a beer joint, and that's how it started.

— Charlie Daniels

Play that fiddle Charlie and drink that beer. Yeehaw!
