Medium offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body. Mealy papery fruity aroma with caramelly notes. Dry-sweet, and faintly acidic, fruity mealy papery taste with oily caramelly notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish oily fruity banana aftertaste with chalky metallic notes. Not very impressive. (0.33l bottle from de Kaaskamer, Amsterdam.)

caesar (4710) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2013
Bottle, year old. Slightly hazy orange brown color, thick off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt and some caramel. Some wheat. Soft sourish fruity hint, which I think is from the Saphyr hops. I got the same sourish fruit in some Saphyr pale ales. It lacks the banana, but it didn’t have any banana when I drank it fresh from tap last year either. Taste is of wheat, caramel and cookie. Soft bitterness, only a hint of sweetness, which is usually the other way around in a weizen. On the other hand, finish is more sweet, slight thin. It’s actually better than the time I had it from tap.

33cl bottle from the Bier Koning. Thick white head. Hazy amber pour. Banana aroma. Another nice brew from Jopen.

altonbrownd (4606) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning. Amber brown body with medium head. Nose is sweet, caramel, oaky. Taste a bit sour, a bit malty, toasty. Some bananas and fruits in there as well. But whole beer kind of uneventful, flat.
