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.

Kolor jasno ?ó?ty, m?tny. Piana bia?a, niezbyt wysoka, drobnoziarnista, o ?redniej trwa?o?ci, pozostawia sporo w?sów na szklance. W aromacie jest troch? s?odyczy, s? banany ale bardzo ma?o wyra?ne, jest wilgotna pszenica. Smak jest mocniejszy i bogatszy, jest kie?kuj?ca w piwnicy pszenica, jest s?odki banan i s? go?dziki, w tle bardzo delikatne kwaskowe nuty cytrynowe. Wysycenie ?rednie, pasuje.

Bottle from AH to go in the train. Drank straight from the bottle which looks quite nice. Wheat flour and dough, light banana and spicy yeast, bubblegum, some grass and dry plastic notes. Almost medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied. Not as bad as I expected.

On tap at Stadsbrouwhuis Leiden. Cloudy pale gold lasting thick head. Banana aroma. Lightly ripe banana in the mouth. Some dryness on the finish. It’s fine. A decent mass production weizen. Had worse. Ok if lacking a bit of character.

Zlotta (2258) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2016
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.
