JanEric (1027) - Meppel, - FEB 2, 2013
Dark weizen, dense white head. Aroma has citrus and banana, wheat. Fresh taste, like a weizen, some sweets in it, somewhat dry, fruity. Dry finish. A nice weizen variant.

Bottled@AIH40. (from biernavigator). Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is floral, fruity, some toffee and a bit syrupy sweet notes. Flavour is citrus, some syrup, mild floral notes as well as some toffee. Simplistic and quite a typical "Dutch Ale" (to which for instance almost all "bok" beers from Holland also suits).

Bottle (AIH40)
Hazy amber color, small white head. Banana and citrus in the nose. Light-bodied. Watery for this ABV, light banana fruityness but mainly lime hoppyness. Quite dry weizen and lacks "dunkel".

Erzengel (3439) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2014
Frisch-mild, weich. Schöne weiche Weizen-note, Nelken mit frischem Hopfen. Floral, aber nicht so intensiv wie erwartet. Frisch, malzig und weich im Nachgeschmack. Nicht zu tief & leicht dünn. Nett.

ZodiacM (124) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
Rood/amberkleurig bier met weinig schuim. Geur van mout, bananen, caramel. Smaak van mout, bananen, caramel en gras. Het is te proeven dat het een witbier is, maar wat zoetig. Nasmaak is bijna afwezig, jammer. Lekker maar niet bijzonder.

Drank with Timon @ Samson 29-10-2014. Did not like the beer. Tastes like spa red. Bitter, no body, lots of carbonation, no depth or richness in the taste. Weizen hints are noticable and nice though, but the overall beer just lacks quality.

Kleurplaatje (43) - 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.

77ships (4215) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2014
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.

Erasmus_ro (1459) - Alabama, USA - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium dark orange, hazy, rather small, off-white head. Aroma is caramel, clove. Taste is caramel, clove, some coffee, quite a lot of nuttiness. Yeasty. Light, strong carbonation. Nothing remarkable, a bit light and watery.
