Details

A fantastic German wheat beer with an American twist, the Schneider Hopfenweisse Tap 5 is a weizenbock beer that was originally an experimental collaboration between the breweries Schneider and Brooklyn. This hoppy weissbier was such a success that it has remained part of the Weissbierbrauerei G. Schneider & Sohn's core range. Expect big aromas of the citrus fruits, pineapple, spice and grass alongside the usual banana notes. A similar flavour on the palate is accompanied by a caramel malty-sweetness. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated, a zingy hoppiness and bitter edge cuts through the otherwise sticky mouthfeel. This is a wonderfully unique beer to try again and again. We love it!

Pours a cloudy dark golden with average carbonation and thick white head. Rich fruity, alcoholic and hop aromas. Has the banana and clove notes you’d expect from a Bavarian wheat beer, alongside a strong hop presence, rich fruity malt flavours and strong alcoholic notes. Taste is big and bold; a beer with real strength from the malts with caramel and raisin flavours, pineapple and other citrus fruits coming through from the hops, lots of richness from the alcohols but all well balanced by the hops. A great beer.

Banana on the nose.Usual Weizen mouthfeel, maybe a little heavier. 8.2% just a little too boozy for the ABV
