GoufCustom (1167) - HONG KONG - OCT 11, 2015

330ml pull-tap bottle bought at 7-Eleven in Lock Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Cloudy hazy pale straw golden colour with thin trace of yeast sediments; Half finger head with white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Excellent sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Aroma of light malt, with very strong wheat and strong tartness, strong coriander, orange peels, citrus, light banana, spices, strong yeast and very light grass; Light sweet taste of light malt, with very strong wheat, light tartness, light coriander, thin orange peels, light spices, earth, yeast, thin lemon and very light bitter grassy hops; Close to light body. Fairly slick and crisp palate; Mouth feel is light maltyness in a light slick background. Very strong wheat presence but very light tartness. Crisp and dry. Not much fruit peels and coriander as aroma suggests, mostly yeasty earthy elements with some spices to round. OkayÖ Hoppiness is very light lemon and thin grass in nose and taste. Bitterness is barely testable for an abrupt, strong wheaty finish; Quite dry after taste. Very easy and wheaty to mouth.

Comments: Its has promising aroma of strong wheat and coriander, but low tartness and lack of fruityness in taste render this one more like a Wheat Ale than a Belgian White. Drinkable, but not classy by any means.

Erzengel (5888) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2015
On tap in Hongkong at PizzaExpress. Smooth and fresh beginning. Light and fresh. Nice Belgian Wit yeast on a tart and dry body. Fresh and smooth. Dry fruity clove aftertaste. Crisp, thirst quenching but still deep. Hints of coriander and lemon in the aftertaste, hints of bitterness. Nice.

Good grainy taste, malt and wheat. Balanced but it would need some citric and spicy notes to be more interesting.

KeefOz (1182) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2014
Tasted 4/2/2014. BB 19/09/14. Poured a cloudy yellow gold colour with 5mm of white foam that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation moderate with large bubbles. Aroma dominated by spices, particularly cloves, and not much else. Taste with slight cloves that masks anything else. Light body. Smooth, light with slightly clove finish. Nothing special but on par with most wheat beers.

Not a great example of a weissbier. From 568ml bottle (NZ$2.59 at Countdown!), poured with a small head, and then disappeared (actually it went a bit flat - glass was clean too). Very little lacing on glass. No nose, no aroma - disappointing. Taste of citrus and coriander, nothing else. Doesnít stack up to other much better witbiers on the market. The only thing they got right was, yes it is a cloudy wheat beer. I donít think it will be around much longer. Wonít buy again.
