Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle: Airy white head, disappears slowly. Very light cloudy yellow beer. Smell lemon, citric, sour and light spicy. Taste is citric, wheat, spices, some yellow fruit, hints of hops, and light sour with a light sweet bitter touch. Bit too much carbo and a bit watery.

abemorsten (2782) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2010
Shared bottle courtesy of Gunnar. Hazy golden with a light brown film. Belgian yeast, spices, fruitiness, clove on the nose. Acidic, spicy, dryish in the mouth. Medium body. Lively carbonation.

Vaiz (3373) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle shared by dEnk, thanks! Clear golden pour with a huge white head. Heavily carbonated and with a clear wheatiness. Still a bit boring but very drinkable. Aroma is strangely absent.

dEnk (3814) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2010
Bottle @ home. Golden orange pour, huge long lasting head. Aroma is faint malt and a touch of citrus fruit. Flavour is dry, light hefe, some banana, some citrus, faint spices. Not very special, but highly, highly drinkable!

tdtm82 (668) - Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2010
Bottle, bought from Utobeer. Good lacing, descent appearance, nice head, loads of spices hit your tongue; earthy, herbs, some straw notes and very grainy. A farmhouse IPA? Lots of wheat and a strong stringy texture. Very interesting. Would go well with some nice bread. Cheers, Menno. Edit. Dry lemony finish. Lots of lemons in the finish.

gunnar (5326) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle from Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam. Pours light straw coloured with a small white head. Aroma is on the sour side, spicy and different from German style hefeweizen i have tried before. Taste is dry, light sour and yeasty. Dry mouthfeel. Long and fruity citrussy aftertaste. Very good beer.

ClubGonzo (4056) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2010
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a clear golden body with a large, foamy white head. The aroma tells me this is not yer average hefeweizen: instead of banana and clove, I get grassy hops, yeast and basement aromas with hints of peaches and citrus peel. Taste is also more in the landscape of a Belgian blonde ale than hefe, with the exception of a distinct wheat element in the aftertaste. Otherwise, this is pretty unconventional and border-blurring. Which can, of course, lead to some pretty tasty brews. I, for one, is very happy with the result from De Molen here: a fresh, lively, light-palated beer with a balanced citric sourness against mild yeasty wheat tones. Good stuff, and a great session ale.

kappldav123 (5018) - GERMANY - SEP 3, 2010
Big thanks to Bierkoning for this one. The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass as well, deep golden, almost orange, nice head. Starts intense fruity and sweet, very much like peach. Finish is weaker, almost washy, modest dry and yeasty. Not as fruity as the beginning. Quite drinkable, but there are better beers from De Molen!

Rune (8077) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2010
750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika. Topped by a wire cradle and a cork. Cloudy, yellow-gold body. Slowly diminishing, soapy white head. Smell of bittersweet fruits mixed with spices and wheat. Citric fruity taste, lemon and leafy hops in flavour plus discreet notes of yeasty fruitiness. Fresh and dry on the swallow. Alright, but it did not carry enough interest for me to empty the whole bottle (hotel room, Oslo 07.08.2010).

Sigmund (5129) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2010
750 ml corked and wired bottle, from Vinmonopolet Valkendorfsgate (spesialutvalget), Bergen. ABV is 5.1%, EBU is 19.4. Bittering hop Sladek, aroma hop Saaz. OG 1048, FG 1010. Pale golden colour, huge and lasting white head. The aroma is more spicy and less fruity than most German style wheats. Cloves galore, maybe coriander too? Hints of leather. Light bodied and refreshing. The flavour is dry, yeasty and spicy, maybe a hint of citrus and banana when you search for it, but less pronounced than in most hefeweizens. Very moderate hops in the finish. Nice enough.
