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.

On tap at ’Café Hoppe’. Hazy, golden amber with a rather large, foamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and a little fruity aroma of banana, cloves, some vanilla and a touch of citrus. Sweetish, moderately yeasty-spicy and a little fruity taste of banana, cloves, vanilla and some citrus, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little sourish and moderately yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent.

A pretty bland weizener. It has a smooth taste and aftertaste, but nothing in the taste really makes it jump out.
