Lovely smokey sweet berry nose. Smooth, super sweet body. Lots of sweet berries, some wood - but soooo cloying. Smooth body hides the alcohol well.

Strong smell of bananas. Hazy mid-brown colour with no head whatsoever. Aroma of citrus and banana, maybe some peach afterwards. Oily and alcohol content adds sharpness & sweetness. Very sweet. Some juniper sourness to be noticed when a little warmer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy, copperbrown beer withou any head. Aroma is strong, bananas, some spicys, carnations, and some strenght from alcohol. Taste is sweet, bananas, some spicys and juniper, you can feel to power of alcohol but without taste of alcohol. Almost full bodied, slippery and very smooth to drink. Very pleasant and tastefull beer (overally Sahti has quite similar aroma and taste profile than weizenbocks have), kindly strong and powerfull, but still easy to enjoy.

Bananiger Geruch. Fruchtig würziger und sehr süßer Antrunk, deutlich zu süß. Etwas alkohlisch ist das Bier dabei auch, es erscheint unausgweogen. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, süß und mittelfruchtig.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
dark amber colour. sediment in the bottom of the bottle told me to pour it carefully after it had had time to sit still for a couple of days. The beer is still too hazy to see through. no bubbles (that i can see) and no head.
smells great! lots of alcohol and bananas. maybe some coriander as well. a lot like a wheat beer.
full body, initially flat but a little bit of fizz near the back end. kind of heavy and sugary.
very interesting. Tastes a bit like you would imagine a 10% hefe would taste. lots of alcohol, some rich raisin flavour goes with that, but still the banana and coriander are prominent. has a slightly nettle-y finish but not from hops. must be from the filtration through nettles and hay, if they do that. otherwise, possibly they simply added brush in the boil.
a fun beer.
