shoulderbroken (1698) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 8, 2014
Tap at Japan Brewers Cup (as were most of the ratings I’m entering now). Aroma is banana, grain, and perfume. Taste is good, light banana, grainy, good stuff. Quite thick. Vanilla ice cream. I like it.

Rich, smooth as a babys posterior and brimming with flavour, All the classic weizen favours with a darker raisin and currant venier. Creamy body. World class. Would love to try with some age.

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2014
Draft from BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush opening night on 29 November 2013. Poured a hazy, dark amber with a tight off-white head and good lacing. Full aroma of plums, molasses, cloves and wheat. Sweet flavours of maple syrup, sticky fruit, cereal and light, tart rind. Finish was molasses, dates, yeast esters and chewy malt. Really complex, but impeccably balanced example of the style.

500ml bottle. Hazy dark brown colour with huge, frothy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Bready aroma, cautious fruity background, hints of apple syrup [Apfelkraut], baked banana, red apple, a pepper yeasty, mustard-like touch, some nutmeg and clove.
