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 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tampa, Fl. - Total Wine - 11.2 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light orange, pillowy white head, nice lacing. Hint of clove in the aroma, some yeast. Flavor has some brief bubble gum notes, hints of bananas and a yeast back end. Mouthfeel is thick enough, but finishes kind of dull. Not the most outstanding hefe.

0.5 l bottle at Tuulensuu, Tampere. Hazy yellow brown color. Very tart aroma with ripe fruits, clove, pepper and vanilla. Dry bready and tart flavor with overripe fruits. A bit different weizen, not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle, bought in Denmark, probably at Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 5.4%. BB date 20.07.13. Hazy orange colour, large white head. Smells a bit "off", sweetish notes of malts and caramel, only hints of banana and cloves. The flavour is somewhat better, malty character, not too sweet, but again the typical hefeweizen notes of "banana & cloves" are very subdued. Lacks some of the "freshness" of a better hefeweizen, Might buy a fresher bottle at another occasion, to re-rate.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma is malt, caramel, light banana and light sulphur. Flavour is caramel, sulphur, fruit and pine. Strange.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 16.9 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark orange-amber color with an enormous creamy orange-white head that lingered forever and left great lacing. The aroma was tart sugar, taffy, clove and bread. The flavor was tart citrus, clove, anise, honey and bread. Long finish with citrus, bread, clove and honey lingering. Moderately full bodied. Solid if unspectacular.

Bottle - this is a might fine looking beer - effervescent body - thick, creamy, lasting head - the rest doesn’t match, but isn’t bad - a little thin on the palate - a bit of bubblegum - a little sweet, overripe bananas, apples - a light acidity - a little bit of spiciness in the finish - lacks the depth of character you want from the style, but okay.
