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.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

It’s a gusher! 33cl bottle poured into two glasses such was the extent of the unstoppable carbonation. Quite sour with some ginger spiciness.

Pours a blonde colour, taste is of whisky, peat, smoke and spices, a great beer from a great brewer

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle, sampled spring 2012. rating from back catalogue. - Caution: Almost half of the bottle gushed right out, very lively foam and light-bodied. Quite unassuming and summertime weizen tending towards a wit, full of fresh citrus notes, virtually no banana, dry. Modest but refreshing. Minus notes for the gushed waste, considering De Molen’s prices.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottled in large bottles, because most of it will end up in the sink or on the floor. Unpleasantly sour for a weizen, and the yeast seems to give it a wrong palate altogether. Well worth a miss.

Tap at the Cask, Pimlico, 18/01/13, split with Chris, Jan and Charlotte.
Hazed light golden yellow with a thin white head.
Nose is sour fruits, light piss, touch of the vinegars, plastic, glue.
Taste is yeasty, lemon, lactose, citrus, some sugars.
Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation, sour bitter tones in the finish,
Is this really a heffeweise? More akin to a Berliner Weisse!

Bottle from the shop in Bodegraven. This one was a gusher, sprayed all over the table. Fruity smell and taste with yeast, spices and citrus. High level of carbonation. I suspect this one might be a bit old.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 75cl. dobrej jakości piwo, lecz nie wiem ku czemu to pszeniczne piwo zmierza. Do niemieckich fefeweizen mu daleko, belgijskich wit nie przypomina. Ładnie się przelewa i tworzy się wielka piana. Zbyt jest mocne nasycenie, a korek po prostu strzela sam. Sądzę że ten rodzaj zamknięcia do pszeniczniaków po prostu nie pasuje. Imbir i kolędra jednak wyczuwalna

Flaske fått av esp0r. Har lest av andre at denne egentlig er en gusher, men denne flasken var fullstendig død. Lite skum også. Smaker malt,gress,høy,gjær. For mye sitrus etter min smak

one of the mùost extreme gushers ever ! glass FULL of foam, bottle half empty ( partly spilled, partly in the glass) and still the foam is comming out at the top. this withoud shaking or stuff like that...
pours warm, hazy orange.
not much smell. i have this element wich i recognize from german beers, but this one’s less bad
realy carbonated still ( wow after gushing even?) definetly most carbonated i’ve had so far from de molen ( and maybe from all beers)
tastes dry, little bit smoked character to me . not my kind of thing...
