Fles. Goed te drinken, maar te vlak van smaak. De ur-varianten van Gulpen zijn prima, deze net iets minder opvallend. KoNrRiI (1716) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 30, 2017

0.33 bottle @ home (bottle from Maciek)
Very hazy, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of bananas, cloves, delicate bubblegum, and spices. Taste is sweet, bananas and spices remain strong, hay comes into the fore. Medium, creamy, soft. Finish is moderately long. Overall nothing remarkable, very definite in its character though the character itself is common and not particularly amazing.
Mooi van kleur, gedronken uit fles. Weinig schuim. Niet zo lekker als sommige Duitse, maar zeker een prima bier. Cristobal37 (1290) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 13, 2017
Bottle from Gulpen. Hazy yella. Tart, banana, wheat. A little thin. Tastes fine, bit not on the same level as a god Bavarian weizen.

0.33l bottle. Hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma of bread, honey, cloves and some banana. Taste of honey, grains, cloves, lemon zest and banana. Not bad, but I like the more fruity weizens. Lore (2993) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 13, 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 aroma’s 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 aren’t 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 doesn’t 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 isn’t bad. It is an easy drinkable weizener and a good thirst quencher. Not that complicated, but sometimes beer shouldn’t be complicated. Nice. Maakun (6814) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2017
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. It’s not bad but too watery for me. Boogiewood (9) - Buggenhout, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2016 does not count
Bottle on the beach. Refreshing. Nice head. Citrus, zoetig, licht alcoholisch. .
