Gangstergafje (945) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 19, 2017
The looks of the beer are nice. The color of the beer is a bit orangy yellow. The beer has a nice silk cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice layer of soft white foam is formed. The majority of the foam collapses over time, leaving a nice soft white drape. The looks are pretty typical for a German Hefeweizen. The smell is typical. It is nice. I smell some sweeter malt aromas at first. They contain a certain bread aroma. I also smell some clear yeast aromas, typical for this beer style. The yeast gives a nice fruity banana aroma, with a tiny spicy touch. Hops arent extremely apparent, but some fruity and spicy bitters exist. Not bad and nicely balanced. The taste of the beer is the same. Traditional German hefeweizen, but not extremely special. Not that much wow, but not bad. Nice malty sweetness, some yeasty flavours that are also quite sweet, and a nice hoppy bitterness. The beer is well balanced and quite tasty. It doesnt really offer something special though. But it is nice to drink. The palate of the beer is good. Body is medium and the texture is quite smooth and soft. The carbonation is medium. The finish contains some nice yeasty fruit flavours. Overall, the beer isnt bad. It is an easy drinkable weizener and a good thirst quencher. Not that complicated, but sometimes beer shouldnt be complicated. Nice.

Tap at Kult Groningen. Hazy light golden with big white head. Soft dough, banana, dried herbs, light grass, pils malts, cloves. Light sweet and under medium bitter. Under medium bodied with watery feel. Its not bad but too watery for me.

Uit de fles geschonken. Licht troebel geel bier. Lekker fris tarwebier met een frismoutige smaak en geur. Prima weizen.

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 13, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Light wheaty nose, mild banana, citrus. Thick hazy dull orange/yellow color, small head. Wheat, citrus, bit of bubble gum, touch of pepper, and finishes mildly sweet. Medium body. An okay but ultimately uninteresting hefe-weizen.

Bijl (496) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 7, 2016
Troebel, lichtgeel, lage witte schuimkraag. Aromas: Tarwemout, licht citrus, banaan vanuit de gist en landelijk hooi. Smaak is moutig/tarwe, banaan, fruitig zoet, ietsje zuur en minimaal gehopt dus maar lichtjes bitter. Mondgevoel is redelijk vol met redelijk koolzuur. Zoetzuur in de afdronk. Fris en makkelijke HefeWeizen...kun je er makkelijk een paar van drinken in de zon. Prima spul!

Alengrin (5105) - BELGIUM - APR 29, 2016
Basically the new name and label of Limburgs Land Ur-Weizen, as this beer has been put under their organic Ur-label now. Conceived as a Hefeweizen, seen the use of malted wheat and German hops (Hallertau) as well as the absence of spices. Medium thick, eggshell white, moussy head with decent retention, but not as fluffy and creamy as in most German Weissbiere; cloudy peach blonde robe with somewhat greenish hue and some tiny bubbles piercing through here and there. Aroma of soggy sandwiches, soapy wheat, white bread crumbs, the expected mashed banana ester and clove phenol but less outspoken than in its German counterparts, field flowers, vague but effectively refreshing hint of lemon zest, some cooked potato earthiness, dried grass, green apple, zucchini, sour cream somewhere. Fruity flavour, dominated by banana of course but also hints of pear, pineapple and peach, sweetish and softly sourish, further accentuated by the mellow, basic sourishness of the wheat malt, supple and light body with medium, but still initially somewhat stingy carbonation becoming softer after a while; bready barley is mixed well with the sourish wheat, finish becomes even more bready due to yeastiness, with a deep, brief, earthy hop touch all the way at the back, effecting limited bittering power as is to be expected from this style; retronasally, the clove phenol returns, more so than the banana ester. Crisp, almost faintly lemony sourishness remains after swallowing, making this quite a refreshing, quenching wheat beer. In all, indeed quite German in profile, but then there is a certain amount of German influence in both Dutch and Belgian Limburg, at least when it comes to older, traditional breweries like this one; it does lack a bit of the rich fluffiness of the best of Bavarian Hefeweizens though, and if tasted blind, Id probably associate this more with the more northern German (and historically more recent) interpretations of this historical style, which tend to be a bit more clean and less phenolic. I can appreciate a decent Hefeweizen every now and then and this to me is a pleasant and well-made example of the style, standard as it may be. Enjoyed it.
