Bottle 33 cl. Pours a semi clear whitish yellow with a small frotty white head and an aroma of orange peel, wheat, coreander, pineapple, banana, flowers, honey and soft drinks. The taste is medium sweet with some spicy bitterness in the finish. Weird

OK weizen. Not too sweet, malty and the added spices are there but subtle. A more spicy white would have made it a Belgian wit. Refreshing and easy to drink.

A disappointment. Appearance - yellow, decent head. Aroma - typical weizen or blonde with some grainy/wheaty notes, some clove and some danky earthiness. Keyword: some. None of them were too prominent, and not in the well-balanced, non-overpowering kind of way, but more of the barely there kind of way. Taste - typical weizen with some bitterness, a tiny bit of sour/tartness/citrussy-ness, some clove, but not much else. I personally could not detect *any* of the juniper supposedly in there, something which drew me to pick this up in the first place. Very disappointing. Palate - watery, very fizzy Overall - meh, honestly meh. Typical blonde weizen. No juniper whatsoever. And even for being so typical this isnt one of the more impressive or even decent ones.

Alengrin (5187) - BELGIUM - APR 14, 2017
The extra spiced Weissbier from these two lovely brewing ladies, from a bottle bought at the Albert Heijn supermarket in Lokeren. Egg-white, dense and creamy, regular head leaving some limited paper lacing and remaining moussy on the edges whilst dissolving slowly in the middle, over a hazy straw blonde beer with ochre-ish tinge, more misty and warm peachy with sediment added but still looking attractive at that stage. Aroma of banana mush, soapy coriander seed, moist dough, unmistakable juniper berries but fortunately not too obtrusive, dried lemon peel (must be the classic curaao), molten powder sugar, tulips (not necessarily from Amsterdam), young cheese, hints of phenolic aniseed, ripe pear, pineapple slices, cooked potato, apricot, chamomile tea, green plum, bakers yeast and, alas, some very vague DMS far away in the background but not succeeding in escaping my DMS-hating nose. Fruity onset with the banana ester dominating (as expected from anything Weizen-like), sweet pineapple and ripe pear notes as well as a soft sourish gooseberry aspect later on reinforced by the basic sourishness of the spelt and - less so - the wheat, in an initially quite spritzy, but adequately carbonated environment, quite refreshing. Bready malt sweetishness and soapy, softly sourish wheatiness rule the middle phase, with the spelt accentuating the wheat souring aspect without becoming too grainy, carrying the banana ester onwards to a mildly drying finish, in which a subtle bready yeastiness appears underneath the expected retronasal impressions of coriander seed, old dry citrus peel having lost a lot of its uplifting aromas and, of course, the juniper berries, which add a gin-like touch but somehow manage not to completely overrule the classic witbier spicing; they do add a very notable resinous wryness on the root of the tongue in the end, along with a modest dash of earthy but otherwise colourless and merely structural hops - as it should be in a tarwedubbel. Alcohol adds a certain glow as well, but only very faintly so - fortunately. Decent wheat ale, in all: I feared that the juniper berries would be much more agressive - a thing I hate since I encountered it in several recent Belgian beers (Hop(e)less Ginny, Ill never forget it) - but in this particular case, they add a wryness on top of the tongue as well as aroma, but seem to live in relative harmony with the coriander and the curaao (though the latter still remains understated and could have been a more refreshing factor if it had been applied more generously). Stylistically, this is a kind of hybrid between the two most classic wheat ale genres: Belgian witbier because of its very obvious spicing and perhaps also the spelt, and German Weissbier because of the use of malted wheat, though in all, it is the first of these two which dominates the second. If I had to explain this beer to less geeky friends, Id therefore associate it closer to witbier than to Weissbier, but an accomplished one in that particular segment, to be preferred over e.g. Hoegaarden, to name just one example...

thanatosti (1664) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2017
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Albert Heijn Culemborg. Hazy yellow with a big white head. Wheat aroma with orange, coriander and juniper berries. Taste and mouthfeel is that of a typical German weizen but the fruit and herbs really work in this one. Nice summer beer.

skortila (5733) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2017
Bottled. 10cl sample. The aroma has light citrus, spice, bit banana. Hazy, yellow coloured beer with a medium white head. The taste is light bitter, citric, spicy, some grain and banana.

77ships (9398) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 28, 2017
330 ml. bottle sampled. Purchased @ AH. BBF 10FEB18. Hazy orange, creamy white head. Very bland nose, orange peel, sweet banana soap, very weak, overly sweet Hefeweizen. Taste is hugely bland, sugar, soap, DE yeast, largely very plain dull soap, sugar,... Body is the same. Brewery name is still the same. Added spices sound boring, dull standard BE spices actually largely orange peel, coriander seeds, juniper berry,... They are virtually absent from the taste, maybe a vague illusion of juniper berry in the finish but that is largely just the illusion. Very weak Hefeweizen beer at best, sub par as was the case for the previous 2 beers tried from this brewery.
