Was a bit disappointed with Brands take at a Weizen. Heinekens 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.

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.

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 for iPhone

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.

Kolor jasno ??ty, m?tny. Piana bia?a, niezbyt wysoka, drobnoziarnista, o ?redniej trwa?o?ci, pozostawia sporo w?sw na szklance. W aromacie jest troch? s?odyczy, s? banany ale bardzo ma?o wyra?ne, jest wilgotna pszenica. Smak jest mocniejszy i bogatszy, jest kie?kuj?ca w piwnicy pszenica, jest s?odki banan i s? go?dziki, w tle bardzo delikatne kwaskowe nuty cytrynowe. Wysycenie ?rednie, pasuje.

Maakun (4811) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2016
Bottle from AH to go in the train. Drank straight from the bottle which looks quite nice. Wheat flour and dough, light banana and spicy yeast, bubblegum, some grass and dry plastic notes. Almost medium sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied. Not as bad as I expected.

harrisoni (17848) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2016
On tap at Stadsbrouwhuis Leiden. Cloudy pale gold lasting thick head. Banana aroma. Lightly ripe banana in the mouth. Some dryness on the finish. Its fine. A decent mass production weizen. Had worse. Ok if lacking a bit of character.

Zlotta (2784) - Hagen, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2016
On tap at Caf Hoppe. Hazy, golden amber with a rather large, foamy, slowly diminishing, white head. Sweetish, yeasty-spicy and a little fruity aroma of banana, cloves, some vanilla and a touch of citrus. Sweetish, moderately yeasty-spicy and a little fruity taste of banana, cloves, vanilla and some citrus, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a little sourish and moderately yeasty-spicy finish. Medium body, smooth and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent.
