3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Bryggeri, Helsinki)
Woh! The whole pub smells of brewing (because they’re brewing downstairs). That kinda masks some of this. Sharp spicy aroma, almost harsh. Tons of hops, but raw and biting. Full sweet wheaty body, some banana, some toastiness. Slightly harsh carbonation. Quite simple and thin dunkelweizen. Clean, which is better than dirty for a dunkelweizen, but bad for a hefeweizen.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap@bryggeri, winter special. Brown hazy. Estery banana, ryeish dark maltyness, some chocolate on nose. Good bodied. A bit grainy dark malty, flavour-wise. Good weiss yeasty esters though. A bit too dry, and malty grainy, to my liking for a dunkelweiss. Wonderful handling of the yeast by the brewer tho. As with their weiss, the yeasty flavours are just perfect in this. Even if not one of the best ones of this place, it would be hard to find a better dunkelweiss nearby.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma is quite typical to dunkelweizens; sweet with ripe bananas and some yeasty notes. Flavour has banana esthers, some sweetish toffee. Finishes somewhat tart and bitter with herbs and grapefruit. Solid dunkelweizen anyway.
