2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Tom L. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, clove, a bit of graininess and citric hints. Sweetish and slightly spicy flavor with some fruity esters, graininess and a bitterish touch. Rather light-bodied. Drinkable.

330 ml bottle. Hazy pale yellow colour, thick white head. Wheaty-malty aroma with notes of fruits and yeast. The flavour is wheaty, with mild citrus and banana notes, and a slightly spicy finish. OK, but nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle picked up at Alko Joensuu Sokos. Steady, finger thick, chalk white head, laces well. A typical wheat haze to a pale golden body. Banana sweetness on the nose added by wheat. Ripe banana taste offset by a backdrop of citrus, lightly spiced. Mid-sweet fruity aftertaste. Foamy in the mouth. Average version of the style (hotel room, 17.08.2014).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy opaque yellow beer with big white head. Aroma has witbier kind of citrusy sour yeastiness. Flavor is quite sweetish with ripe fruits, yeast and some toffee. Pretty thin palate and quite strong carbonation. Finish has mild bitterness, peppery yeastiness and some sourness. Tastes like a toffeeish sweet hefeweizen but smells like a witier. Still decent, but a bit thin.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy and pale golden, with a small and fizzy head. Aroma is slightly sour. Taste is mild with a combination of sourness and some sweetish fruity notes. Medium carboantion and slightly watery mouthfeel. Reminds more Berliner weisse than Bavarian Hefeweizen. A refreshing thirst quencher. (Draught at the craft beer festival in Helsinki).
