Crown-capped champagne bottle – decants a lightly clouded light gold colored weizen in my glass. Decent puffy 2 finger cap lasts and laces. Light effervescence. Aroma is fairly modest but there is a defined wheat malt-fruit-clove aroma with an underlying vinous quality. Fairly sort moth with a light fluid character. Flavor is also demure but this is part of the intended character of this unique weizen – front side has the appearance of the standard Hefeweiss flavors, the clove phenols, banana-fruity esters and a light citrus presence – mid palate is where this beer becomes unique – instead of the standard hop bittering you get a mild tartness like raw white grape skin, not over powering but definitely present and this makes the finish not so dry but much like a white wine spritzer – fluid, tart but not puckering dry like most wiezens. Absolutely no hint of the alcohol in it. If this was the profile/character the brewer was attempting to produce, they succeeded in spades. Many will say this is a weak weizen bock but this ignores is unique mildness and vinous qualities.

Bottle no. 22775 courtesy of and shared with heavy who found it at Vrutak, thanks! Poured a misty golden body with an off white head, fine enough, but going fast. Creamy blast of maltienss in the aroma, yeasty, bitterish, dusty, orange, feels old. Slightly vinuous. Dry, creamy mild soft taste, strong yeastiness. Hops, if there were any, are long gone, all that’s left is a flawless but dull wheat malt showcase? Phenols - no, hops - no, esters - some, weak, alcohol? Hm. Shame, I’m sure this is much, much more interesting fresher, but it’s far from the expiry date, it says right there on the label that it should be cellared - and it obviously shouldn’t. Careful with it if it’s expensive, it’s past its prime.

Wouw, wat een lekker bier is dit. De volle smaak van lente zodra je een slok neemt doet je verlangen naar meer.

Interesting Weizen Bock, I know when I finally tried it the bottle was at least a year old so it didn’t have the robust fruity fresh hop character of a nelson sauvin beer but it was still a little fruity and surprisingly bitter for a weizenbock. Spice notes.

WillemsUrenkel (421) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - MAY 22, 2014
0,75 l bottle. It´s always a challenge to get the yeast parts in a 0,5 l glass. Pours out unclear dark golden, nice white head. Yeast and fruity sourness and hopy on the nose. Starts with hop, honey, slightly bitterness, but not that expected grapefruit, more a sourness. Strong taste, sweet malt, low carbonated. Interesting combination.

Bottle. Spicy clove and banana and celery aroma with some Dijon mustard. Cloudy copper under a persistent white blanket. Sweet worty flavour with some refreshing wheat sourness. Not very hoppy in flavour or bitterness. Faintly white grapey. Medium body, medium to high carbonation, faintly lingering bitterness.

Bottle. Slightly hazy deep golden color with a quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of lemon, apple, apricot and wheat. Sweet taste, some bitterness in finish. Thin body. Low carbonation.

The best of the weisse family for me. Nice sourness which is refreshing. Nelson sauvin barely noticeable, but more bitterness and more character. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from 750mL bottle (cellared for a year or so). Clear golden yellow with white head. Nice wheaty citrus aroma. Taste has a bit of dry yeast and banana. Medium body.

Flasche 75cl. Typisch lesse, hefetrübes Weisses vom Aussehen her. Tatsächlich weinige Aromen in der Nase. Im Antrunk sehr komplex, erinnert mich aufgrund der leichten Säure sehr an ein belgisches Gueuze. Angenehm in der Textur, hefefrisch im Abgang. Sehr gut gelungen, kann aber nicht mit Scheiders Hopfenweisse gleichziehen .
