3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A medium brown hefeweizen with good hefe smell and flavors. This is a interesting seasonal. Normal clove smell and taste but for me overall okay but with a minor taste of bacon of all things.

50cl bottle @ Cafe Vingerhoeds, Oirschot. Hazy orange color, small to medium sized white to off-white head. Smell lightly malts, lightly butter, lightly some fruits. Taste is the same. Uninteresting imo. Soft mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Bierland, pours a murky brown with a fast-vanishing head, banana on the nose plus notes of barrel and a little smoke, and a faint pear-drop tang. Interesting blend of flavours, the smokiness is very light and complements the fruit rather well. There’s also a hint of honey in the mid-body, and then a light dry-bitterness on the finish. Nice.

Sample @ Beerotica Tasting
Hazy light golden colour, off-white head. Aroma is mostly banana accompanied by some smokey peat tones and something sour. Taste is a lot of yeast and banana and distant whiskey and vanilla. Bit sticky body. Nice carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,5l bottle. Pours cloudy amber, dark orange with big vague head, that disappears quickly. Nose is smoked ham, malts, wheat, smoke. Palate is crispy, lively medium body. Carbonated crisply, lively and mouth-full. Taste is dry, little bitter and tart, but still mild with taste of smoke and some roasted pork. Reminds of Schlenkerla’s smoke beer, however not really on a par. Finish is light, refreshing with short yest wheat taste and longing smokiness from the whiskey malts. Overall pretty interesting specialty in the Hefeweizen niche. Also the texture is rather compact, not very complex and smokiness does bring aroma flavors some originality.
