2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
An absolute gusher! I try to get the aggressive liquid into my weizen glass, but since that can’t hold more than 22 cm of foam a considerable fraction of the beer ended up on my kitchen table. Finally the foam fountain has settled down, and I’m left with a very cloudy, medium orange body. The head is of course humongous, it’s off-white and long-lived and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is quite unusual for a hefeweizen: it is fruity, but more on the slightly over-ripe side, and there are far more apples than banana. Also some spices and yeast. Light sweet and light acidic, almost sour taste, with a light bitter finish. The flavours are unusual and not that pleasant. There are some faint fruity and spicy traces, but also unpleasant yeast and cellar. The gushing left the beer almost flat, and that is certainly not very fitting for this kind of brew. A great disappointment, and I do hope this is not how the beer is supposed to be.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 1 year before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]
Bottle shared at CPK - London. Pours cloudy yellow-gold with a fine, white foam head. Soured malts on the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit sour, with faint peaty smoke, some brett funk. Light to medium bodied with average to lively carbonation. Faint dry lemon on the finish, more funky brett. Meh, might not be entirely right. Still, it’s novel.

Pours orange golden with soapy head. Smell has sour malts and some belgian yeast. Starts refreshing sourish, with yeast, sweet candy sugar and some nice wweetish malts. Very fizzy carbonation. Middle part creamy-yeasty, well balanced sweet-sourish. Goes into a sweet malty finish with lots of refreshing sourish yeast.

It’s a gusher! 33cl bottle poured into two glasses such was the extent of the unstoppable carbonation. Quite sour with some ginger spiciness.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden. Aroma is grass, citrus, bread and cereal. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet and a tad sour. Light body with lively carbonation. bartlebier (4117) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 2, 2013
75cl bottle, sampled spring 2012. rating from back catalogue. - Caution: Almost half of the bottle gushed right out, very lively foam and light-bodied. Quite unassuming and summertime weizen tending towards a wit, full of fresh citrus notes, virtually no banana, dry. Modest but refreshing. Minus notes for the gushed waste, considering De Molen’s prices. Mackeon (163) - - APR 26, 2013
Bottled in large bottles, because most of it will end up in the sink or on the floor. Unpleasantly sour for a weizen, and the yeast seems to give it a wrong palate altogether. Well worth a miss. Theydon_Bois (20450) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2013
Tap at the Cask, Pimlico, 18/01/13, split with Chris, Jan and Charlotte.
Hazed light golden yellow with a thin white head.
Nose is sour fruits, light piss, touch of the vinegars, plastic, glue.
Taste is yeasty, lemon, lactose, citrus, some sugars.
Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation, sour bitter tones in the finish,
Is this really a heffeweise? More akin to a Berliner Weisse!
