This is the beer I drank for the first time on Texel and for some reason I just drink this beer every time I return to Texel. Somehow it fits with the island. All ingredients come from the island as well. Supply is constant since my parents spend most of their free time on Texel.

A: Poured it into my Hougaerdse das glass. A hazy copper color with a cream color head

S: hops, malts, orange and some banana.

T: Great. This beer has a double character. It has the malty weizen taste and the grainy white beer as well. Roasted malts, grains, orange peel, coriander and spicy hops which are rather surprising.

M: Medium carbonation, a bit creamy and a dry finish.

D: A pretty original beer. I really like this beer and even better to drink it while being on Texel. The best of this brewery in my humble opinion. Drink and drink again.

Brrrr. Beer tasting isn't always fun. This is a heavy overrated beer. It is really bad. Why doesn't anybody say so?

Looks very bad. Trouble, without any head. And it isn't the glass.

Smell is not appearant. The sour, duffy smell warns for the taste. But beer tasting is tasting, so I must drink. Sour like something is wrong.

This beer has nothing to do with whitebeer / wheatbeer. It is cursing to compare it with Dunkelweizen.

The mouthfeel is also bad. Headache beer.

Never again in this lifetime.

Colour is brown, with a decent creamcoloured head, ok carbonation, good lacing in the glass.

Smell is very appealing indeed: very fresh, clear orange, a bit banana, defenate floral hoppyness, and also some spicyness/clove.
Taste is a bit more spicy than the expected fruityness. It has a clovy and peppery bite to it more than the smell indicated. biscuits in the background.
The wheatcharacter comes through in the aftertaste: agressive and lasting bittersweetness.
Ok drinkable. It's not too high abv, but the alcohol is present and noticable

It poured cloudy and dark amber with a nice, creamy, dense head of off-white foam that dissipated rather quickly. The nose is sharp and yeasty with slight hints of clove, fruit, and banana. The body is light, round, rich, and appealing with low carbonation and hints of bread and malt. The sharpness that was on the nose is not evident on the palate, which is smooth and easy. The body is medium/light. There is a slight sweet lingering with suggestions of bitter orange marmalade. It would be a perfect summer beer, but tastes great on a rainy and windy September day. It provides very easy drinking; however, it is not a typical Dunkelweizen. Perhaps that is why they label it Specialbier! I would seek this one again.

beautifull colour, amber, almost orange.

slightly troubled look, little head (skuumkop) but it could be the glass.

the smell is a little pale, a touch of fresh sour and a hint of seasalt (or maybe that's me wishful thinking, this beer coming from one of the small islands in the North Sea)

A refined but not complex taste, almost fruity in the start and a friendly bitter at the end. Nice, easygoing.

Started off right from the fridge, couldn't wait, got a lot nicer after letting it warm up.

This 'donkerwit' or darkwhite beer pours a amber color with little head and a good amount of carbonation.

Smell was not very distinct, some wheat grainy notes and a fair amount of yeast smell, but not like a witbier or weizen.

Taste is fresh, wheat like and sizzling of carbonation. Some caramel notes and a bit sticky on the lipps. The yeast did not give a lot of character, certainly not a witbier/weizen taste. Very low bitterness.

This beer does not have the dryness and yeast profile of a dunkel weizen and is more a fresh summerbeer, rather than a dark wheat.

A strange brew. Too sour for a weizen. No characteristic weizen aromas.

Poured from the 0.75l bottle into a original Skuumkoppe glass.
Prior to pouring rolled the bottle horizontal to distribute the yeast as described on the webpage.

red orange body with coarse carbonation, head is only slightly beige with coarse and medium bubbles of 2 fingers that reduces to a stable few millimeters.

smell of banana, more fruity esters and yeast, quite pleasant

has a sour undertone to it that is quite unique, some banana, nice malty sweetness, towards the end rather dry and quite bitter for the style.

medium creamy feel on the tongue and a bit carbonation

Not really your typical Hefeweizen. Remember this to be even more sour on tab. The suspended yeast definitely does it some good by adding the creaminess. Smell is nice and taste is a bit strange for the style, but I do like it most of the time.

Pours a unfiltered amber copper color.
Smell is not strong but has a malt hint to it.
Taste is a sweet fruity, floral with a malt finish
A pretty good beer that is easy to drink but has character it is a full flavored beer that is hard to describe. If I had to call it anything I'd say it is half German Dunkel and half belgian wit.

Best before 06-05. Poors in without a great head like you're used of a wheatbeer. Foam is gone fast and beercolor is copper/orangebrown.
Smell is malty with roast and litle yeastesters. No off arome but hardly any nose for a 6% beer. Taste is same story and feels like you're drinking a beer that had added lots of extra water. What's there is some malt, litle wheat carracter and hint of roast. All in all a rather dull beer but drinkable. Be aware though it doesn't taste that it has alcohol and it must have!

A dark witbier, this is called. Certainly not a dunkelweizen!
Served in a Texelse chalice.

A hazy orange beer, slightly dark. A rocky white head. I missed a tiny but of the yeast there, but that should not be a huge issue.

Smells soapy with floral hops and wheat. Some light fruits prehaps.

Pleasant tasting, a light fruitiness, orange peel, spices, bready malts, a surprising hint of tartness and floral notes.

The body on this one is light to medium, smooth and the carbonation is medium.
A bit dry, or powdery more like.

Overall a nice summer beer I think.
It is not very strong so it would be sessionable and the tartness gives it something special.

On tap at Haven van Texel, Amsterdam.

Pours cloudy burnished gold with a white film that leaves no lace. Wax and honey on the nose. Caramel and toast malts undercut by a thin metallic graininess with grassy flinty hops to finish. Dry leave. Thin and crisp.

Drank this thinking it was a blonde, and looking back I still don't see where this would line up as Dunkelweizen. Wheat character is largely absent. Indistinct either way. Maybe it does better in bottles, but as is it's only good as a hot day quencher.
