Was a bit disappointed with Brand’s take at a Weizen. Heineken’s business influence certainly there, as the beer looks the part allright. Nice cloudy orange-golden with an okay head. Some sweet notes from the yeast in the nose (banana, vanilla). Luckily the taste was not that sweet and there was a nice bitterness to it and some citrus-like sourness. Taste lacks depth though, and I could not detect the wheat either. It is refreshing, but the balance between the sour, bitter and sweet does not feel right.

Hoofddorp w Malcomb, NB, and Julie As for all Brand beers they posess a little more explicit taste than the Heinekens and Bavarias. The same goes for this weizen beer. Easy drinking. Tastes best when well chilled. ---Rated via Beer Buddy 5% ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Goudgeel, troebel, witte schuimkraag, voldoende koolzuur. Aroma: Tarwe, gist, kruidig....banaan. Smaak: Fris... beetje citroen en een tarwe zuurtje. Ook wat zoetig. Verder het bekende als banaan en koriander/kruidnagel. Niet heel bijzonder wel verfrissend. Ik vind hem te zoet en te weinig bitter. Lichte body, waterig, vlak. Afdronk is zoetig en snoep achtig.

Gedronken van fles bij het bos paviljoen te Uden. Donkergoud van kleur,blond schuim. Een redelijk frisse weizen, wat waterige smaak.

Fat. Oklar mörkgul med ett vitt skum. Det doftar och smakar som det ska och som det brukar göra, men såväl dofter som smaker är så försiktiga att det mest bara blir platt. Något tunn kropp på det.

blariacum (98) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2017
Fles. Donkergoud van kleur. Geen overtuigende smaak; voorzichtige alledaagse weizen. Brand heeft al een eeuwigheid een aantal toppers (zoals Up, Imperator), maar deed hiermee helaas wat veel brouwerijen doen: per se een ’compleet’ aanbod aan bieren hebben. Die zijn dan meestal niet allemaal goed. Voor de weizen van Brand geldt dat helaas ook. Te waterige smaak.

Bottle at Imperator bar, Gulpen, Holland. Hazy orange. Spicy minty cabbage aroma. Taste is tangy wheat with strong spearmint and other herbs. Some kind of strange wit that doesn’t really fit into the Belgian category, but is even further from a German weizen. Not very good.

On tap at Proeflokaal De Boom, Alkmaar - Hazy gold body, massive rocky head. Nose slightly clove-cum-banana stereotype, but some bready notes there as well. Only downside, gassy as fook. Real burp-maker.

33cl bottle shared. Poured a slightly hazy straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is crushed banana, malt, light sweet fruit. The flavour is light acid citrus with a light watery grainy yeasty light bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation.
