3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the Brewpub (School actually). A bit hazy orange beer with a tall frothy white head. Sweetish aroma has typical elements of wheat and banana esters. Flavour differs from the most typical as having also a fresh citrus fruity bitterness. I think this was quite good and the building is also quite special.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(7/2012) yellow hazy. Strange one. Sahti- like intensity in the fruity banana esters. Some peas (a fault?), wheat. As a weiss, a bit strange, but if you like sahti, it’s not that shabby. But I also think this batch isn’t what it should be.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2013
Draught @ the brewpub. Rated on 13.05.2011.
Aroma is floury with some wheat, bubblegum and citrus notes. Flavour is somewhat floury with wheat, yeast, bubblegum and hints of banana esthers. The good thing here is the lack of oversweet banana – the bad thing is the stale floury notes.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2012 Looks like basic weizen. Aroma of banana and tropical fruits. Decent weizen which should be much more abundant.
2012 edition: darker than original. Slightly bitter and rather sour. Aroma of cranberry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ brewpub. Turbid yellow, cloudy and creamy pale head. Sweet, vanilla like aroma, wheat, little orange, fresh banana and clean yeast. Fresh flavor with some spritzy citric fruits, sweetness, raw banana and yeastiness. Mild alcohol notes, sugary bubblegum and limefruits in the finish. The sweetness makes it just a bit cloying. Medium bodied, slick and oily moufhfeel. t’s a real schoolbook brew.
