Tap @ Ravintola Gloria, Kuopio. Rated @ 5.8.2010.
Golden colour with a small white head. Malty on the nose with spices and citrus notes. Weak aroma. The taste is wheaty and fruity but also soapy. Watery mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Bland.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2011 Draught. Pale golden color, white head. Smooth malty flavor, excellent balance. Medium body, medium carbonation. Quite nice.
Rerate 7/2011: more spicy notes, balance seems a bit off. Not so big of an impression this time around.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours clear yellow with a small white head; floral hoppy, sweet malty and honeyish aroma; flavor is honeyish and sweet malty, light bitter in the finish; dryish aftertaste, but also a bit cloying as the honey and malt are dominating; medium body, high carbonation. Quite nice, even interesting, but maybe a tad too sweet.

Draught @ Kaisla. Pale golden colour with thin white head. Quite hoppy aroma. Flavour has a hoppy character similar to that of the aroma. Grassy and fruity notions in the flavour too. Feels a bit watery in the mouth. Quite dry finish.

50cl bottle @ Aying Brewery. Pours hazy yellow with a small creamy head and lacings. Fruity, grainy and dry. Extremely smooth and nice palate. Lively carbonation. Grassy and crispy taste. A bit harsh or rough , paper and grain - but well made brew.

500ml bottle from Ship & Mitre, Liverpool. This was so good, my friend Alison, who knows not a lot about beer, thought it was so good, she bought 2 bottles of it. Very pale gold, with slight haze, thin white head. Wow. A slightly sharper than usual German beer. Light zesty wheaty rather surprising beer. Good though. Definite weisee actually more Belgian wit character. Interestingly light.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Mallaskukko. Slightly hazy golden, small but firm white head. Clean malty nose with slight citric notes, yeastiness, alcohol, pear and apple fruitiness. Similarly alcoholic, herbal flavor, Strong lager -type fruitiness, solid bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, really nice lively carbonation. That booziness disturbs me a bit, otherwise this’d be pretty refreshing. Ayinger could do better.
