Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse

$11.99 from Green’s on Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA.
GREAT looking 750mL corked & caged bottle, a super looking presentation.
It pours a light, honey colored body and a big head in the Tucher 500 mL glass. A lot lighter than the other version. After an initial big frothy head it fades to give a much less dense, wispy type of head. Some very fine lace.
Smell has pretty much a sweet, light alcohol and not a great deal else.
Tastes are a simple, sweet grapefruit juice. Not much else in terms of complexity or characer to me. Perhaps the mere hint of pineapple. There is a slight dry, hoppy finish but it’s hardly prevelant. This beer is MUCH more drinkable than the other version. It seems lighter, less cloying and just more drinkable and approachable.
