Poured from fridge temp. Pours a nice deep orange with a huge amount of light head. Aroma is heavy on the citrus. Lemon and orange notes explode from the glass. Picking up some pine, vanilla, and some caramel candy. Taste follows the nose. A bit sweet initially, but with some really nice fruit and slight bitterness immediately after. Overall, I would call this more sweet than bitter. I get a decent amount of orange creamsicle. Mouthfeel is a bit dry and creamy. Really smooth and nice. Definitely recommended.

From Cervezasespeciales. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Bad End. The usual notes of a hefe combine well with the fresh hoppy notes of the nelson hops, providing grape reminiscences

On draught at the Delirium in Amsterdam, appearance is a dull gold with small off-white head leaving tight, foamy lace.

Smell is very heavy diacetyl, the first wifts being quite off-putting. After some air and olfactory adjustment, some green apple, continues to improve as it breaths, but from such a low base...

Tasty is a bit more aligned with my expectations, the classic hefe banana esters really dominating. A little more of that green apple and Riesling thing, a save compared to the nose, but too exaggerated, cloying.

Mouthfeel is off-dry, medium-light body.

Drinakability isn't too high for me. I dont like the smell, and the hefe esters are over the top.

On tap. Pours a hazy golden colouro, big head with medium retention, creamy lace.
Aroma of cloves, oranges, peaches, banana, pepper.
Full body, creamy palate, good carbonation.
Taste of oranges, cloves, banana, fruits (peaches).
The usual notes of a weizen emphasized and with some new hints of fruits and herbs. Really good.

Pours a hazed orange color with a froth, bigger, white head.

Smells of flowery cotton candy, spicy yeast, lemon zest and dextrose. Wet grass and tomato bush tame the subtle sweetness from the caramel malts.

Has a perfectly smooth mouthfeel, exhibiting an easy drinking, medium bodied beer. Still maintains a pleasant refreshment, due to a bubbly finish, establishing a well working antagonist to the yeast supported malts.

Tastes of yeast muddled caramel malts and a flowery hoppiness. Spices get amped up by a bubbly effervescence peak, showcasing anise, allspice and a cardamom bitterness, acting as a very good gateway for putting the focus on the fruity, herbal hops. Finishes sweet and spicy, mellowed by the smooth mouthfeel, together with a very late, lingering hop dryness.

Nice and well made, don't get the hefty price tag though.

Pours a hearty apple juice color with a finger and a half of off-white foamy head. Head foams up quickly, with a fairly quick dissipation time as well. No lacing left behind. Aroma is of apple, biscuit and bread malts, and earthy hops. Flavor profile is loaded with apples at the front giving it an apple cider vibe. Biscuit and bread malts stick around just behind. It has an overall earthy and apple flavor. Mouth feel is right down the middle of the road with a medium thickness and a 50/50 balance between a smooth and creamy feel and a fizzy, particulate feel. Overall, a fantastic brew. It provides unique characteristics, and drinks well, all over a 7%, well aged beer. The one dimensional aroma and flavor profile are really the only fault with either one.

Served in a 12oz snifter. 2011 version.
