Bottle pours a thick cloudy brackish dirty orange with pillowy off white head. The aroma is right on the mark for the style. Its nice and big with sweetness, wheat, banana, tartness and hop spiciness. The taste is very similar with sweet sugary malts, hints of banana and spice along with a nice hoppy zest underneath. It leaves a pleasant taste behind. I’d love to have this on tap on a hot summer day. Excellent summer brew.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2007 This half liter bottle came as a nice surprise - how could I not try this collaboration between the Brooklyn Beer people and a leading German brewer? There is a cloudy, golden color with a substantial head. The fresh, sweet aroma has sour, yeasty notes. Forthright flavor of wheat, hops, and lemon - bitter with a nice tingle on the fade out. Now here is a robust brew that puts most stateside wheat beers to shame.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - SEP 16, 2007
Hazy gold/amber and 3cm of frothy, white foam. Aroma of crisp, floral, lightly spicy hops, past ripe light fruits, wheaty grains, and a light dose of zesty yeast. Same flavors with more than a little candy like sweetness- too sweet, really the only minus, though. Dry, wheaty, yeasty finish. Medium/full body, foamy yet soft. Great brew.

bottle. quite a nice collaboration between two great brewers. pours a cloudy dark golden. aromas of citrus and hops. lots of sediment in this one. nice overall palate. very refreshing and full of flavor. medium bitterness and pretty sweet. nice thick head which turns into a white lacing. I’m really glad I found this beer in my local store...

Very, very heavily sedimented with hops. It seems very gritty on the palate, which would seem to indicate hop pellets, but who knows. The bitterness is certainly up there. Almost like a Noble Hop dark wheat IPA. There, I just categorized this one. Not much head, possibly due to the hop oils, but the carbonation is fairly light too. Deep, muddy, nearly opaque chocolate brown.
I like the hops and I think they are well-done and fresh tasting/smelling, without any of the obnoxious C-hop bitterness (obviously), but the malt structure is a bit odd. Chocolate and creamy base malt sugars don’t seem too assertive, nor is there any real cohesion between the malt and hops. Yeast adds light banana and a hint of bubble gum on the finish, but is drowned out by hop bitterness. Not sure what to make of this one, and while there’s nothing wrong with it (other than the fact that I think they could condition some more of the hop sediment out before bottling), I don’t think there’s anything terribly unique here. Just a boatload of fresh hop flavor and aroma.

Well I must have shaken this one quite a bit as it is very opaque. Bright aroma of the Saphir hops, a little banana, pear. Dry with lots of dusty yeast character, a little alcohol, fresh melony hops. Spritzy carbo. More interesting than awesome. Thanks Joe & Gabe!

Pours a brilliant golden orange. The aroma is of a strong fruity hefeweizen but one can detect a hidden bitterness and the pungent strength of the alcohol. The flavor is the same. Traditional weizenbeer characteristics in harmony with a powerful dose of hop bitterness and alcohol. An excellent beer everyone should try.

Quite a nice beer. Very unusual with the intense hops and the wheat. Great hop aroma with citrus and wild herbs. Wheat in the flavor with some banana and lots of cloves as well as hops. A cloudy gold colored beer with lots of yeast and sediment.

Cloudy straw body with streaming jets and a clean sudsy white head. Perfumy, nutty aroma with cooked banana and light caramel and wheat tones. Flavor is nicely phenolic and numby with pleasant flowery esters. Nice dryness and notable bitterness. This is a very good, big pale bock. Creative and vaguely in vein with Houblon Dobbelen. That means I like it.

Murky amber/orange body with a large, fluffy beige head, lasting with sticky lace. The aroma is banana, citrus, cotton candy and herbal hops. The flavor is apricot, banana, herbs, cloves, spicy herbal hops and cotton candy. Medium body is very soft with moderate, but gentle carbonation and a sweet, peppery finish. My expectations weren’t high for this one coming in, but damn, this was a pleasant surprise.
