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.

Nice weizen. When Dutch brewers try to do a weizen it is often too sweet or citrussy. This one is like the German originals. Not too sweet with subtle flavors of matls,overripe fruit, banana and yeast. Body is a bit weak.

Gangstergafje (152) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2015
Nice citrusy aroma. The beer has a nice golden color. The smell is great: very appealing. There is almost no foam. The taste is good. Not very Weizen, but definitely better than a normal Pilsener. The beer has a nice refreshing touch of citrusy sour. Not bad, not bad at all.

300cc tap. Nice cirtric aroma. Not very weizen. Nice carbonation. Decent beer that pairs nicely with light meals.

This beer is a weizen in name only. Almost as clear as a lager. Tastes reasonably citrusy but is quite thin.

On tap at Café Kalkhoven Amsterdam, september 28th 2014. Cloudy yellow body with a thick white head. Aroma of banana, wheat, apples. Taste is wheaty, mild yeast notes, some fruit towards the finish. Heavy sweetness. Mild spicy and sweet aftertaste. Not the best example of a gehefe

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
