TreinJan (4) - Leiden, - DEC 17, 2011
A Hefeweizen mit Flaschengärung, made from wheat malt and smoked barley malt, with refermentation in the bottle. The bottle will be poured at the servery and will not be brought to your table, as is the custom here. Hazy to murky appearance, not so much foam as usual for a Hefeweizen. Fruity (some banana, some citrus), malty-sweet plus slightly smoked taste, creamy mouthfeel. Some slight bitterness in the aftertaste. Not really my cup of eh.... beer, but interesting.

Bottle from Hopfen und Malz, Berlin. Good weisse aroma, banana, cloves, wheat faint smokey wood. Traditional weisse flavor, mild, sweet malt, light touch of smoke. More smoke in the finish than but its mellow. I expected more smoke like Schlenkerla's weizen but this one is more a straight up traditional hedeweizen. Easy to drink n enjoyable.

Bottle from Biernavigatie. Aroma is wheat malt, spicy yeast, subtle smoked notes, mild clove, soft fruits with a touch of banana. Flavour is moderate sweet and lightly bitter. Medium bodied. Solid Hefe with great balance and smoothness, the subtle smoke works well. Good!

At Spezial Keller. Hazy orange color with white head. Aroma is fresh minerally, spicy, a bit bananas. Taste is more minerally freshness, really not much more - just hints of bananas. High carbonation, soft mouthfeel.

Frisch und gut gekühlt vom Fass in der Brauerei. Das wahrscheinlich beste Rauchweizen deutschlandweit.

Very soft bacony aroma. Sweet malty body, some smoked sausage. Lovely wheatiness too. Very nice.

Hefetrübes Bernstein mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, etwas Karamell, rauchig, Speck, hefig, leicht fruchtig, spritzig.
