3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, brygg 925, from Fenaknoken, Oslo. Initial dense and chalky, lacing-head over a cloudy, yellow body. Spiced aroma with wheat and citric fruits. Sweet citrus with banana taste on a spicy backbone. Fine and refreshing interplay of acidity and sweetness. Comprehensive interpretation of a weissbier (hotel room, 18.08.2009).

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50cl bottle from Ica Straumen (Inderøy) Batch #908. Pours yellow to orange with a medium white head. Aroma of floral stuff and some citrus. Flavor is fruity and sour but a bit watery. A good beer on a hot summer day but not the best Weissbeer...If this is a proper weissbeer..

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I gotta say, this is a pretty run of the mill weiss. A bit maltier than most. I’d wish for a creamier and smoother palate, otherwise it’s decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of Vea. Pours clear pale yellow with white head. Yeasty aroma with banana esters and some bubblegum. Intense carbonation that overpowers the taste initially, which is good, because the taste is very watery. At least the carbonation provides a bit of a taste sensation

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. (#820) It pours an unclear, yellow-orange body and a nice white head. The carbonation is so intense, it causes the yeast to circulate vertically. Fascinating. The aroma is too artificial, with banana and bubblegum being the most evident. Fruits, a touch of cloves and some tiny sour notes too. Too sour in the mouth, in a grainy way, with artificial banana, some citrus and yeast, and a little flavor of cloves. Medium full body, highly effervescent. Not a bad beer, but fails to pin the style I think. (080708)

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2009 500 ml bottle shared by yngwie. A big shiny white head over a greyish yellow, well-carbonatied body. Rather artificial banana aroma and some distant whiffs of dry malts. Taste is sourish malty with a faint banana-like fruitiness. Very thin-bodied. Dry, neutral finish. Mediocre.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Huge white fine-laced lasting head. Opaque paleish yellow body. Thin watery estery aroma with bananaish notes. Dry chemical grainy banana bubblegum taste with chalky notes. Fizzy. Carbonates in the mouth. Thin mouthfeel. Dry artificial aftertaste lingers. Didn’t like this much, which surprised me. (0.5l bottle from yngwie. Batch #820.)
