3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle, bottled on 14/07/2011. Poured hazy orange with an everlasting white head. Managed to pour most of the beer in to couple of glasses without losing too much, came rushing out of bottle. Aroma is spicy, wit-like - coriander, oranges and yeast. Flavor has oranges, spices, wheat. Ends very dry and fruity. Medium body. Extreme carbonation.

330ml bottle. Gusher. Hazy orangey golden colour with huge macropore white head. Decent fruity aroma with grapefruit notes, yeast. Taste is unspecific fruity, close to apple and grapefruit. Needs improvement.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled on July 14 2011. Gusher on open, nose heavy with orange peel, lemongrass, lemon, and some beautiful floral tea notes. Maybe a touch of ginger to boot? Cloudy yellow-golden with, of course, a huge white head. Surprisingly lifeless (medium) body, a little scummy with wheat, spices numbing the tongue as much as they dull the other flavors. From this bottle, hard to agree with the site’s classification as a Hefeweizen considering the texture and utter lack of esters and phenolic compounds.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
An absolute gusher! I try to get the aggressive liquid into my weizen glass, but since that can’t hold more than 22 cm of foam a considerable fraction of the beer ended up on my kitchen table. Finally the foam fountain has settled down, and I’m left with a very cloudy, medium orange body. The head is of course humongous, it’s off-white and long-lived and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is quite unusual for a hefeweizen: it is fruity, but more on the slightly over-ripe side, and there are far more apples than banana. Also some spices and yeast. Light sweet and light acidic, almost sour taste, with a light bitter finish. The flavours are unusual and not that pleasant. There are some faint fruity and spicy traces, but also unpleasant yeast and cellar. The gushing left the beer almost flat, and that is certainly not very fitting for this kind of brew. A great disappointment, and I do hope this is not how the beer is supposed to be.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy orange. Lots and lots of white head. Maybe it’s something about De Molen because I’ve had this happen with them before. This one has orange peels, wheat, coriander and general fruitiness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at Pikkulintu, 20120328) The beer poured orange and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, clove, Belgian style yeast and malts. Palate was medium bodied with quite high carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, clove, Belgian style yeast, spices and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy, fruity and bitter. A very different hefeweizen and a tasty one, too.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 750 ml. Lively beer, at first, two glass are full of foam, finally into third glass poured also some beer. Orange yellow beer with a huge and white head. Aroma is very fresh, wheat, fruits, lemon, some bananas and sourness. Taste is wheat and fresh, lemon, other citrusfruits, lots of spicyness and sourness. Medium- bodied, lots of carbonation, slightly biting to drink, still it fitts nicely into this beer. Interesting, witbier-hefe combination, citrusfruity sour and refreshning beer.
