Bottle from Alko, Kemi. Interesting.. a hefeweizen oktoberfestbier. Quite good brew actually. Wheaty and fruity aroma and decently strong malty taste with a bit fruits as well, not very bananic though. Good body. Suits just fine for oktoberfest.

26.11.2015, 0,5l bottle shared with friends:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish grassy, yeast, grass, wheat, almonds, cereal. Taste is slightly dry and harsh, paper, weeds, wheat, medicine, cereal, grass. Little bitterness, harsh mouthfeel. Crap!

Złote, mętne piwo o obfitej pianie, która redukuje się do pierścionka przy brzegu szkła. Aromat bardzo słaby, czuć tylko lekki banan. W smaku lekka słodycz, minimalny banan, trochę lepiej niż w aromacie, ale nie wiele. Goryczka niska. Ogólnie piwo mało ciekawe, słaby aromat i smak, z cyklu wypić i zapomnieć.

I did this as a blind tasting and it actually had a cleaner yeast character than some of the lagered American oktoberfests. That doesn’t seem right but there it is. It’s cloudy golden w/ a big foamy head. There’s a little bit of hops and a mild touch of tartness. Pretty tasty beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from a promo pack, the last one on the shelves at my local Sobeys Liquor, and gracing the included half-litre weissbier vase. (Great glass; it more than makes up for having to turn down a heavy Paulaner litre promo mug last year.) Pours a hazy, deep straw hue with moderate carbonation and a beautifully fine, creamy, meringue-like head of bright white. Aroma is of fresh, delicate wheat, accompanied by lemon and pineapple and touches of banana and peach; the sip holds the same elements, with just enough extra banana and pineapple, and a mild hint of pepperiness. A grassy noble hop presence peeks through both. Silky, light-bodied, pleasant finish. I thought lager was the only belle of the beer ball for Oktoberfest, but this very happily corrects me. Everything is in balance, which I greatly appreciate - with too much fruit, the style can be cloying.
