Pours very unclear, warm blonde. Medium to medium small white head. Scent is creamy, but much more sharp and rough than usual in a weizen. hops don't come trough as much as anticipated, and banana (isoamylacetate) is surprisingly mild. Maltyness (breadyness) takes the upperhand, with wheat in the lead. Taste is full, fairly bitter. Banana shines trough, but 'only' at a tripel-level. Wheat is present, but not as OP as anticipated. Not as creamy - but certainly not thin - as other weisses. Hopfen / hops only shine trough in the bitterness, not so much in the aroma. Enjoyable, creative, but not super style technical - if that was even the aim.

Hopfenweisse the Dok way, from tap at their premises in Ghent. Snow white, creamy, dense, membrane-lacing head (clearly both hops- and wheat-enhanced), hazy ochre-tinged straw blonde robe. Aroma of lime blossom, lemon orchard even, bread crust, oxidized green apple, lemongrass, green banana, potato juice, straw. Cleanly fruity onset, green banana, pear and vague pineapple, very sharp fizz (stingy); wheat-slick body, bread-crumb-like malty core and clear wheat sourishness, elegantly bittered by zesty and grassy hops (lime, lemongrass) eventually depositing a quinine-ish, rooty bitterness, adorned with a clove-like spicy note here and there. Hopfenweisse the postmodern way, citric and zesty – one can wonder where the difference with white IPA lies. Too bad for the overcarbonation, though…

27 August 2022. At Hal 16 (Dok Brewing). Shared with the lovely Anke!

Hazy ochre, small, foamy, white head. Aroma of wheat, raw barley, bread crust, nutmeg, clove, green banana, apple. Taste has sweetish apple, banana & plum over a wheaty, bready malt base with spicy clove & nutmeg notes. Grassy, slightly floral hoppy finish, lingering yellow fruits and clove. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Solid interpretation of the style.
