I can be short about this one: the smell and taste of this beer are awefull. I didn’t even finish the whole bottle.

Sampled from bottle I think @ Cafe Buitenlust, Oirschot. Misty yellow orange colour, white head. Smell and taste wheat...some fruits.... yeast... citrus. Average body.

Standard and boring weizen beer. It’s not bad, it’s just very uninteresting.

JaKeAFC (451) - ITALY - JAN 22, 2014
50 cl bottle, 5.1%. Murky dark yellow color, big smooth white head, great lacing, fresh spicy nose. Aroma: fruity with banana, ripen fruity, white grapes, some lemon. Bready weizen malts. Taste is flat, a bit sweetish, tart. Average carbonation for the style, fizzy, short dry finish, watery. Average weizen, at least refreshing.

Cloudy orange appearance, medium head. Malty and yeasty aroma. Decent Hefeweizen style beer.

Erzengel (1907) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 14, 2013
Diesen Test melden (Funktion im Probebetrieb) Nach oben Sehr helles und trübes Bier. Der Geruch ist frisch-zitronig. Im Antrunk ist das bier etwas flach, zum Hauptteil wird es etwas vollmundiger, süßlicher, bleibt aber relativ laff. Im Hauptteil breiten sich sehr schöne und angenehm-süßliche Fruchtaromen aus, frische Banane, Pfirsich. Der Nachgeschmack bleibt fruchtig-leicht. Sehr süffig. Auf der Zunge verbleibt eine ganz leicht herbe, aber hauptsächlich leicht-frische-fruchtige Note. --> Sehr leckeres helles Weizen! Zu empfehlen!

tabernarius (34) - Pisa, ITALY - NOV 17, 2013
A rather mediocre hefeweizen, but probably one of the least offensive beers in the Grolsch catalog; pours not very hazy light amber, with white foam (but gross texture). Nose is not that bad, cloves and a marked but not indecent sweetness; no banana. The sip is harder, with a metallic tinge and an overly sensation of sweetness. Bad, but hefeweizens have generally a smaller range of quality than other styles, so a bad weizen is still drinkable in some way.

Imaena (1701) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Scotland: Better than Edelweiss. Less fragrant with a slight thin metallic flavour being the only real issue.

Aniela (2301) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2013
Draught at Old Quarter, Amsterdam. Sourish, citrus and hoppy aroma. Citrus and almost floral flavour.

finol (1974) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2013
Draught at Humlehof, Folkungagatan. Pours straw yellow with a White head. Very clean, drinkable brew, sort of a wheat tasting pale lager.

Pretty poor wheat beer, compared to the weihenstephaner vitus I just had. Banana flavour, nothing very special...
