3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 08.06.2012
Aroma is saison-like with hints of tartness and sourness. Apricot and wheat, but no banana at all. Hints of yeast and something that reminds me of weissbier – maybe the sweetness and wheat? Flavour is refreshing, a bit floury and very short – almost no aftertaste at all. No banana esthers here either, but maybe some apricot and hints of bubblegum, wheat and yeast. Refreshing and good, but a bit thin. A hefe with a saison twist.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pale amber, orange hued, minor haze, lively carbonation with a large foamy white head, sticky lacing. A bit more orange than others, thats for sure. Wheaty nose, pale breadiness as well. No real clove, banana, or bubble gum to mention. Similar tongue, wheaty, a bit sweet, bready, but again... no spices I usually associate with the style. Body and mouthfeel are moderate. Lingering wheat and breadiness. Very simple, clean, but lacking the spices I like to see in a German Hefeweizen.
