5.9.2014. Hazy orange beer. Aroma of banana, spices of white pepper, coriander, cloves. Taste has caramel, pepper, yeast, some alcohol. Honeyish sweetness, somehow watery and alcohol present. Not very pleasant.

Butelka, warka do 06/08/16. Biala, niezbyt bujna, ladna, drobnopecherzykowa ale blyskawicznie opadajaca do pierscionka piana. Samo piwo lekko metne, jasne, midowo-pomaranczowe. Aromat z butelki - drozdze. pozniej slody. Ze szkla zreszta podobnie, mimo, ze staralem sie nie wlac osadu drozdzowego (pewnie troche jak zawsze sie zalapalo). Drozdze maja wyczuwalny belgijski, stajenny nalot. w tle, slabsze ale obecne: przyprawowosc (pieprz, gozdziki, kolendra - dosc ladnie wymieszane w lekko pikantna nute), jakies jasne owoce, takie rodzime (powiedzialbym, ze gruszki) ale tez nieco banana... niewiele wiecej, niezbyt zlozony ale bardzo sympatyczny aromat. W smaku dosc analogicznie, kilka nut ekstra nawet sie pojawia (brzoskwinie?), sumarycznie w slodka i przyprawowa strone, goryczka niska do moze sredniej (troche przyprawowa), sporo ciala, wysycenie srednie z plusem. sumarycznie: dobre drozdzowo-fenolowe w charakterze piwo. Po ogrzaniu sie, rosnie przyprawowosc zarowno w aromacie jak i w smakach / posmakach.

As always, this beer has convinced through its sensational taste. One of the best Belgian wheat beers around.

King_Alex_II (305) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Dark clear ambery color with a steady thin white foam layer. The smell is sweet and slight lactic. The taste is incredibly heavy, Cristal sugar sweetness, slight licorice, lactic acidic taste. The aftertaste is round with sweet vanilla notes. This beer could easily have been stored in a sugary barrel. A bit too heavy though. A beer to finish an evening.

Icedwarf (533) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
Troebel donker geel bier met schuim. Smaak is krachtig hoppig bitter, licht zoet en fruitig, citrus, banaan en vanille. Erg goed bier, smaak blijft lang hangen.

If you know your german brews this is a Weizenbock, a strong wheat beer, Witbier in Belgium. Very nice look, a bit cloudy dark gold, ephemerous head, nice taste of wheat sour alcohol and sweetness. Very Good beer, not Vitus (a weizenbock myth), but very good.

Marduk (3371) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 6, 2015
330ml bottle. Cloudy orange color. Tiny size, white head, stays. Slightly sour, fruity, banana, wheat and sweet notes in aroma. Faint citrus, metallic, fruity, faint banana, touch of yeast in taste. Thin and watery. It’s not sweet, but alcohol is very well hidden. Crisp body. Dry papery aftertaste.
