Randomly selected at Cafe de la Gare in Den Haag, served from the bottle. On to the beer:

This wheat ale is tawny brown with a head of modest retention. There is a kiss of pine in the aroma, along with vines and a strawberrhy tartness. Were strawberries used to make this beer? I don't know, but I also get a strawberry note in its taste. It's a little fruity overall like a strawberry, with a vague floral note. Toasted malt too. This is a strange overall taste, and its a little Plain Jane too. At least the medium body and moderate carbonation attempt to liven the beer.

That was an unexpected experience, and I don't need to do it again.

A dark orange beer with a lace head that settles fast into a small layer.

The smell has a spicy and somewhat woodsmell. It appears to have some coriander, but this is not listed on the label. The malts are nice and add a deep smell. The smell of wood is probably from the New Zealand hops.

The taste of the beer has a light wheatmalty taste, supplemented by the extra maltiness of the carared and melanoidin. The German ale yeast is light and clean, not something very well suited for a wheatbeer. It does not accentuate the wheat or hops, in a beer that could use some fruity taste from the yeast. The hops add a wood taste, but the 120 minute continuous hopping is not apparent, it's bitterness is low to medium and the beer is only moderatly hoppy.
