UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 29-10-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Albert Heijn Capelle aan den IJssel, The Netherlands). Cerbier (856) - - OCT 27, 2017
The looks of the beer are nice. It looks like a Weizener, with the color of an IPA. It has a nice orange yellow color, with a lovely Weizener cloudiness. On top of the beer a lovely layer of soft, extremely fine firm foam is formed. It almost looks like merengue. Lovely.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is special. It reminds me a bit of Tripel Karmeliet. It has the same hoppy aromas. I smell some sweet and gentle malt aromas. The beer has rich hop aromas. They are lovely and delicious. I like it. It gives lovely floral hop aromas, very similar to the hops in Tripel Karmeliet. I love it. Very rich and fresh.
The taste of the beer is very nice. It has some clear Weizener malt touches. I taste also some Weizener citrus fruits, zest and full creamy yeast. The hops give most of the flavour. It are nice floral hops, with a strong bitterness and lovely fresh sours. Nice.
The palate of the beer is nice. Medium body, smooth and medium high carbanion. The finish of the beer is nice. Lovely strong hops, with a nice bitterness and slight acidity. The hops remind me so much of Tripel Karmeliet. Nice. All in all, a lovely beer. Even beter than expected.

Hazy dark yellow with a white head. Citrus, mostly orange, aroma with wheat notes. Sweet taste with a good solid bitter undertone. Nice surprise from Grolsch.
0.3 l bottle from 'AH XL' (Maastricht), bottled in August 2017. Hazy, golden yellow with a medium large, dense, stable, white head. Sweetish, rather yeasty-spicy and moderately fruity aroma of lots of banana, vanilla, citrus and some clove. Moderately sweet, malty, fairly yeasty-spicy and moderately fruity taste of banana, vanilla, citrus and some clove, followed by a short, moderately bitter, yeasty-spicy and slightly grassy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and quite effervescent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Hoppy Weizen, not really IPA-like but absolutely enjoyable if you like wheat beers. goozen (4153) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy yellow colored brew with an kind of dry bitter taste, hints of banana and a touch of citrus. Since they under the wings of Asahi, the special beers are coming back again. MarcoDL (5418) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle. Golden orange pour. Aroma of wheat, orange zest, citrus and caramel. Taste has bitter orange zest, bitter caramel, sweet wheat and banana yeast. Not bad at all, which is a surprise to be honest. tricksta_p (5244) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2017
Bottle from a local supermarket. Aroma is wheat, yeast, citrus, spicy notes with clove, grain, lemon, touch of banana and bubblegum. Flavour is moderate to medium sweet and moderate bitter with a hint of wheaty sourness. Body is medium. Judged as a relatively bitter Witbier, this is not bad. mike_77 (7153) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2017
Golden blond with light haze and lasting head. Aroma and flavour do have the light sweetness of a Witbier and a little bit of fruity hop bitterness of an IPA. No complaints about this one.
