Schneider Hopfenweisse
« on: November 10, 2009, 04:22:30 AM »
I'm in Munich right now and just went to the "Weisses Brauhaus" to have a Schneider Weisse with some Weisswurst (white sausage) for breakfast. As I check
out the menu after already having one beer I noticed somrhing that caught my interest. Schneider Hopfenweisse, a wheat with 8.6% alc and American hops. Correct, it tastes like a wheat IPA. Denny, even you would like it. The percievef bitterness is that of a regular wheat but it has the full taste and aroma of C hops. None of the clove though. I think that would have fought the hops anyway.

I'll have to post pics when I'm back.

BTW, they put it on the menu just yesterday.

Nice. My parents lived in Germany for almost two years about 9 years back. Unfortunately I was not into
beer yet. I was thoroughly enjoying the Rheinhessen wines. I hope to go back and try all things beer soon.

Prost!

That's the Brooklyn Brewery collaboration, no?  I had the one they brewed in the US but I don't remember if I've tried the version brewed in Germany.

Looking forward to hearing more about your trip when you get back, Kai.  Have fun!
Please do not reply if your[sic] an evil alien!
Thanks

Yes, it is the Brooklyn Brewery collaboration I found that out later. I even happened to read about it in a BYO article on the plane.
