White Hoplosion represents a new variation on the classic style of wheat beer. The unfiltered beer combines typical balanced fruity flavors with fine distinctive hop notes to create an ultimate sensation of taste with 5.3 percent alcohol by volume. Using selected Bavarian noble hops, Weihenstephan emphasizes the bitterness of the wheat beer flavor, which is generally milder than lagers or pilsners.

tap @Reijngoud Rotterdam. Pale yellow colour, white head. Aroma is hoppy and swith some fruits. Hoppy taste, palate shows some herbs and bitterness. Shows more up to a witbier than a weizen. Citrus in the aftertaste.

Wow, wat een geweldig bier is dit. Mooi troebel in het glas met een middelmatige schuimkraag. Bier heeft iets weg in het bouquet van zuurkool. Smaak is licht hoppig en laat zich makkelijk weg drinken. Op van de tap in 0.5 liter glazen.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
In short: As name suggests. An classic german hefeweizen (bananas and friends) with the fruity hopping cranked up like an IPA. Very good.
How: Tap at Chimera, Oviedo Spain.
The look: Cloudy Yellow - blonde body topped by a persistent medium white head.
In long: The strong nose is enormously fruity with banana esters mixing with tropical fruity hops and even some pleasant cat urine that I often get from Citra hops. Medium size body with a well leveled carbonation creating a very nice clean mouthfeel which was as expected considering the brewery. Taste is more of the same. A polished true german hefe like german breweries make so easily. This base hefe is generously hopped with what tasted to me new trendy hops with grassy and tropical fruits flavors even if description says it uses noble Bavarian hops. Whatever they used I like. A rating transcribed from hand-written notes, because real beer geeks always drink beers with our notepad in hands and have sex with our fanny pack on.

Aroma: wheat, sharp grains. Appearance: pale, hazy yellow, massive, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: grainy bitters continue. Overall: OK Hefeweizen, reminds me of a Witbier. Pint at Big Brew, Morristown.

These are the experiments I like. Wheaty body, like a German weizener. With some delicious fruity hops. Good beer.

On tap at The Burrow. Rating from December 2013. Pale straw colour makes you think this beer has no flavour bug it is quite the opposite.
