Ungstrup (34004) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2016
Draft. An unclear amber beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of wheat, cloves, and hay. The flavor is sweet with notes of wheat, bananas, cloves, and straw, leading to a dry wheaty finish.

PhillyCraft (5489) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2016
Sampled at Jopen Amsterdam, pours brownish gold I think, edible and hash deep. Bread and light rust were the main tasting notes. Not a fan of this one.

Bottle @ home. Solid Weißen. Clear orange, if you don't pour the sediment, fine white head. Very herbal taste, not as sweet or heavy as some are. Nice

SinH4 (2443) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Douberd, many thanks! Hazy orange color with big tan head, not as dark as expected from a Dunkelweizen. Aroma is fresh citrus fruits, a "Frühlingswiese" like hoppiness, some green apple skin. Taste is fruity-hoppy, again apples, some yeasty spiciness, fine-bubbled, but high carbonation, silky mouthfeel. A nice and sessionable hoppy Weizen, I like this one very much! After a few minutes, a bit of a tangy booziness comes into play, but it’s still okay. Luckily (and now understandably), this one is sold in small bottles.

markschiedon (556) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2016
Drinking from a 33cl bottle. In the aroma yeast and hops. The dark orange beer has a small brown head. In the taste caramel, a bit watery when it warms up. Low carbonated

Teran (273) - Belgrade, SERBIA - FEB 12, 2016
Murky orange with white top. In Serbian Malle Babbe meaning is Little Grandmothers. I do not know the Dutch word root. Banana and citrus, Belgian yeast. Low in alcohol and simple I would say for this kind of beer.

mariuspoenari (1311) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2016
33cl bottle. Hazy orange pour with a nice white head. Smells of caramel, bananas, overripe fruit and yeast. Taste is sweet and salty, and, of course, bitter - quite refreshing, with a medium body and medium level of carbonation.
