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.

Amsterdam Brewing - Boneshaker IPA
 
Cloudy copper pour with a thick tan head.
A strong citrus aroma and some evergreen make up the aroma.
Over the top citrus. Like eating a grapefruit without any sugar. It certainly is mouth cleansing and refreshing and it's going down very well on a nice warm May day. There is a hint of sweetness in the background but not enough to cut  the citrus.
It's good but just a little less citrus and I would really love this.

Beer Quote of the day

I've often been asked what do you do now that you're retired?

Well, I don't have much of a chemical background but one of the things I enjoy the most is turning beer into urine!
