Malle Babbe is a dark blond Weizen brewed with Saphyr hops as whirlpool hops. The beer should have banana and citrus flavours.

Kleurplaatje (73) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2014
Pours slightly hazy amber with a very quick disappearing white head that leaves no lacing. Aromas of malts (caramel, hay, cereal), yeast and bananas are present. Pleasant, but not that special. Taste is in sweet in general. No bitterness. Largely bananas, honey, wheat and caramel in the beginning. Aftertaste is a bit banana and pretty ’buttery’. It doesn’ last long, which is pretty disappointing. Light bodied, with a thin watery texture and average carbonation. Overall seen the beer was quite a disappointment when it comes to the palate and the appearance. Too watery and a far too short finish. Would’ve loved to have a bit thicker texture and a longer aftertaste. The taste was okay to me, but it isn’t going to help its ratings that much.

Tasting glass draft @ AC/CB. Murky orange, close to no head. Nose is lightly metallic, strange spices, wheat. Taste is a bit muted, this beer was also served too cold in my opinion, metallic wheat, candy spices, sweetish yeast, malt, faint hops. Yeasty body. decent but far from top.

On keg at Jopenkerk Haarlem - Hazy orange golden body, small frothy lacing white head, vanishes quickly. Sweet wheaty and fruity nose, banana, dough, coriander, citrus, a bit of vanilla. Taste is mildly sweet, similar to a banana split, a little wheaty. Very creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice one.
