sebletitje (6624) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 4, 2012
Draft @ Délirium Hoppy Loft Brussels. Orangée/cuivrée présentant un léger trouble, col blanc crémeux. Arôme donne de suite un côté allemand, sur des esters fruités, malt léger biscuité. Palais, levure, fruité léger, fruits noirs avec ce profile Weiss typique et ce côté levure restant bien présent. Garde une certaine douceur avec une point de banane. Le tout devient assez vite trop doux et presque écœurant. Pas mauvaise, mais pour moi il y a trop d’alcool.

Bottle @ Uncle Chris’ house in Fürth. Picked this up at De Molen. I was excited to find this so early in my European tour, as it was one of the Mikkellers I was most seeking out. Hope it’s good- here goes... Cloudy, fairly dark brown appearance with a fluffy, light brown head. Very spicy (cinnamon, clove, nutmeg), a bit boozy, rich wheat malty, slightly toasty, mild caramel aroma. Again, quite spicy flavor with notes of rich clove and nutmeg, chewy, spicy yeast, doughy wheat malts, light banana, and some booze. The flavor is overall pretty decent but the booziness makes it a bit hard to drink. Not too bad but could seek some improvements.

Davros (1897) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2012
Pours deep amber with a fading head. Nose shows doughy yeast, wheat, golden syrup and cloves. The doughy yeast note is very prominent. Similar flavour, more full-on doughy characters. Quite sweet, sugary almost. Noticeable alcohol in the finish. Carbonation seems a little excessive, perfectly syrupy body though. Not exactly a complex beer. The doughy character is annoyingly distracting.

Hazy copper colour. Some banana notes but not too much, bready, yeasty, a bit sweet.

Gurthnar (1633) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - JUL 19, 2012
Clear amber colour, medium white head, short lasting. Aroma of honey, wheat, fruity, alcohol, hops. Taste medium to heavy sweet, almost medium bitter, light sour. Alcohol notes all the way, quite annoying. Hops appears in taste, citrus fruits, earthy. Low drinkability, rather odd taste combination. Finish light to medium bitter and sweet.

TET (1608) - FINLAND - JUL 14, 2012
A coppery coolur, a big and blond head. Aroma of sweet malts, lots of wheat, bananas, some dark malts and spicys. Taste isn’t so sweet than aroma, wheat, some dark malts, lots of spicys, bananas and carnation. Medium bodied, smooth and lots of carbonation. Same kind of nuancees that are in Aventinus can be found, but still complexicity and harmony are far away from Aventinus; anyway, nice, strong weizenbock.

una bella weizen bock di colore quasi ambrato che si fa bere molto facilmente pur avendo un gusto deciso.

dEnk (3775) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Aroma is relatively faint, some bready caramel malt notes. Very faint banana. (Served too cold) Flavour is a very full bready malt goddness, with a spicy and herbal banana note, some bitter liquorice in the finish, followed by faint sourish fruit. Alomst spicy. Something else. Nice.

laiti (5606) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2012
33 cl bottle, BBE 20.10.2013
Aroma is very close to a Belgian blonde with fruits, banana and some Belgian yeast. Very foamy palate and a bit too high on CO2. Flavour is fruity and dry with apricot some gooseberry bush Gets dry and yeasty towards the end of the bottle. A belgian blonde in disguise.
