olsvammel (5098) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2012
Bottle from a shop in Copenhagen. It poured a hazy golden liquid with an orange tint. Sweet malty smell, with dried fruit and candy. Sweet taste as well, similar to the smell. Nice and easy to drink.

ComradeK (1084) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 9, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a clear medium amber, with a largeish off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Cinnamon, musk, banana and some honey notes make up the aroma. The hops are fairly strong for a weizen, offering some nice herbal and spicy notes to start it off. A slight honey flavour leads into a musky mixture of mild cloves and a spicy, savoury flavour. This lasts into the finish, which leaves a faint banana and cloves aftertaste. A nice, complex weizenbock from Mikkeller.

sebletitje (8666) - 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.

adnielsen (10367) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2012
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 (2601) - 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.

yiannnos (1233) - , CYPRUS - JUL 20, 2012
Hazy copper colour. Some banana notes but not too much, bready, yeasty, a bit sweet.

Gurthnar (4485) - 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.
