Tasted 15 July 2009. 500ml bottle, 8.2% Alc/Vol.
This beer is a collaboration between two long time friends, Schneider brewmaster Hans-Peter Drexler and Brooklyn brewmaster Garrett Oliver.
It pours a cloudy, golden yellow in colour. The nose is quite intense with plenty of coriander spice, malt, and clove and citrus.
The palate is where it is at. Full and rich with a soft wheaty character, lemon, coriander spice, clove, warm slightly oily alcohol and a sharp lemon and orange rind zest that flows seamlessly into a bitter hop finish.
Not for everyone but bloody well worth a try!
