Was a bit disappointed with Brand’s take at a Weizen. Heineken’s business influence certainly there, as the beer looks the part allright. Nice cloudy orange-golden with an okay head. Some sweet notes from the yeast in the nose (banana, vanilla). Luckily the taste was not that sweet and there was a nice bitterness to it and some citrus-like sourness. Taste lacks depth though, and I could not detect the wheat either. It is refreshing, but the balance between the sour, bitter and sweet does not feel right.

Ijskoud uit koelkast als honingstroop in mijn glas. Dik mondgevoel. Verfrissend, zacht en troebel. Zoals ik mijn vrouwen ook graag heb.

On tap. Hazy yellow with white head. Slight spicy yeasty aroma. Taste has some banana and spiciness with yeast but muted compared to good German versions. Not too sweet , dry and refreshing on palate. Ok for a light afternoon beer

droef (86) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2014
from tap. poured a hazzy yellow golden colour with a big lasting white head. some hops, banana. Typical Brand taste which is a plus, but can’t compete with the german weizen

Erzengel (2604) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2014
Weizentypisch mit leichter Bananennote im Antrunk, nicht zu süß, leicht herb. Im Hauptteil bananig-würzig, nicht zu tief, recht süffig. Im Nachgeschmack etwas süßlicher, Nelkenaromen, typische Weizen-Noten, aber irgendwie nicht so rund und schön wie es sein könnte...

Cunningham (4486) - Halden, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2014
Appearance: Cloudy orange golden color with a thick white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Wheat, yeast, mild acidic, some spices and banana.
Palate: Medium to full body. Tad sweet and an ok bitterness. Average to rich carbonation.
Taste: Wheat, mild citrus, a bit fruity, some spicy notes, yeast and balanced mild banana.
Overall impression: Nice refreshing and tasty. Not as much acidity as a Belgian wit and not as sweet as a German hefe weisse.
Personal stats: Bottle from Miranda

0,3l fles bij de Appie vandaan. Oranjegoud troebel met een witte schuimkraag. Geur en smaak zijn met banaan en lichtbitter met wat citrus op de achtergrond. Aardig weizen bier.

Tap tasted at Nederlandse Bierproffestival on 17/05/2014. Lots of banana in the taste and the aroma. Little spicy on the mouth. Clear white head medium creamy. Light body and carbonation is medium. Next one please!

Icedwarf (325) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 29, 2014
Vandaag gedronken op terras. Heerlijke weizen smaak, iets zurig en bittere bijsmaak die ik typisch vind voor Brand bier. Blijft lang hangen. Levendig bier met mooie schuimkraag. Normaal ben ik voor Franziskaner echter deze is zo mogelijk nog lekkerder.
