5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Can:   Golden, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft floral and mealy nose.   Similar on the tongue.   Semi-sweet, smooth, pale breadiness.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Not as musty or basement like as other Belgians, but still enjoyable for being very simple.

A - Pours a cloudy golden-yellow with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of sweet malts, lemon and other citrus smells, poppy, honey, coriander, and some Belgian yeast. T - Starts off with a mix of sweet and lightly grainy malts with some lemon zest and other citrus flavor with a bit of coriander. Through the middle, some poppy comes through with some honey and Belgian yeast flavor. The finish is a mix of sweet malts, Belgian yeast, spice, and a bit of lemon peel with a hint of tartness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a sweet, and lightly dry and tart finish. D - Very drinkable. Nice BPA. Good overall balance with the poppy adding some nice flavor.

weihenweizen (2019) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2012
Refrigerated can from JoePeesie brewed on date November 9, 2012 poured into a shaker. Pours hazy golden with small white head that dissapates quickly. Some small bubble lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, and light herbal aroma (poppy). Taste is herbal (poppy seeds), off bread taste, some grass, hint of pepper, and little taste in the finish. Tastes old, I don’t think I would like this even if it were fresh.
