3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
24th March 2011
A tapped wooden barrel atop the bar at Arends Nest. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate. A little dry. Low carbonation. Sweetish malt - somewhat tripel like. Mellow smoke, clear and present but never overwhelming. Nicely judged! Finishes a tiny bit dry with a trace of bubblegum and some subtle wood. Alright - fresh pleasant drinking smoked beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at ít Arendsnest, Amsterdam on 3 April 2011. Noted at 6.5%. Reputed to be the first beer from the new kit at the brewpub in Haarlem. Hazy orange colour. Sweetish with some banana esters and clovey spices. Not much smoke in evidence. Which may be just as well as Iím not convinced that a sweet smoked wheat beer would be a great combination, for me at least. As it was, this was a bit too sweet for my liking. Decent enough, just not really to my taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Brewed with Hallertau Mittelfrue, interesting. Same like the saphyr they brew with. Are they doing those de Molen-like typoís on purpose? Hazy golden color, medium slight off-white head. Aroma of soft dry smoke, banana, hint of clove, some fruity hop. Nice combination of beechwood smoke and weizen. Quite dry in taste with again some dry smokeyness and banana. Finishes with the dry woody smoke. Could have used a little more sweetness/body, instead it finishes on the dry side. Overall the intensity of the smoke is medium and the smoke is more woody than bacon or peat-like, which I think is the best fit for a weizen-like style. Good beer.
