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

Heerlijk zomers witbier. Hopping maar toch zoetig. Kleur mooi honingtroebel. Goed voor warme avonden en lichte maaltijden.

300 ml bottle at home, Seems Jopen is switching to the "pipje" bottle. Poured into a weizen glass. ABV 5.5%. 1,45€ Very deep orange colour, or very light amber. Lots of activity in the bottle, two full fingers of slighty off-white head, with very good retention and nice lacing left on the glass. Aroma mostly of bubblegum, followed by the wheat. Some light banana smell on the background too. The taste is great and much different than every other weizen I had till now. More of a citrus flavours upfront, wheat follows but less notable than other examples, the typical bubblegum and banana are there but are coming out at the very end, balancing the citrus and leaving the sweet aftertaste weizens typically have. Very nice, extra refreshing. Medium thin on the body, good amount of carbonation. Overall a nice surprise, making the style far more appealing, at least to me.

Bottled from biernavigatie.nl Slightly hazy dark golden colored, off-white head. Fruity nose, hops, some wheat. Malty flavor, later on some wheat, some bitterness, hardly any sweetness. Medium to thin bodied. Easy to drink beer, quite clean. Nice brew.

Aroma: citrus and herb mostly. Appearance: lightly red clear; Taste: ginger and banana in aftertaste and slightly floral and woody at first. Palate: Light, thin and lively carbonation. This is a nice beer to drink with light food or alone.

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.

Tap at Jopenkerk, Haarlem: Hazy amber coloured brew with an slightly citrus taste. Very good summer thirstquencher, maybe the rating will be lower in colder times.

Bottle, 33cl, at home while cooking. I drank this icecold and even then the hop taste was really present. It was refreshing and really nice. When it was cold I mostly tasted citrus and coughing syrup. After a while the beer was at room temperature and there was a malty taste to be found. Nice surprise. Would definitely drink again.

UPDATED: APR 12, 2014 Hazy orange golden, small frothy white head, vanishes quickly, thin layer remains, a bit lacing; sweet wheaty and fruity nose, banana, bread, dough, coriander, citrus, a bit roasty, floral hops; at first mildly sweet, develops into a wheaty acidity but not that sour; light to medium texture, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation; mild sweetsour taste with a lingering sourness, hint of bitterness. Well-balanced, nice beer but I wouldn’ t consider it as a dunkelweizen.

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.
