3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours golden, slightly hazy with a light and fast dissappearing white head. Style typical notes of banana and clove in aroma. Add orange cest, a slight sourness and a distinct - spicy but short - bitterness in the aftertaste, and you get the taste. Perfectly carbonated. Refreshing. Overall: well made and true to style.

0.33l bottle from Alko. Little hazy color with small head (maybe too cold?). Aroma has some fruits in it, some citrus and perhaps some apricot or banana. A nice palate for summer wheat beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty decent wheat beer, rare thing in Finland. Typical bananaish flavour, quite fresh and refreshening. Fizzy and sour palate. A real wheat beer fan may appreciate, though better things coming from Germany.

Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy fruity aftertaste with orangey spicy notes. Decent, but boring. (0.3l draft at Vili Wäinö, Helsinki. Rated again at Oluthuone Kaisla, where it got 3.0.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a medium, white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a lot of banana ester, sour wheat, some clove, vanilla and red berry notes as well. Taste begins with a strong splash of vanilla mixed with banana esters, the vanilla steps aside in the middle to be replaced with wheat. Some bubblegum in the aftertaste. Palate is refreshing even if a bit watery again.

33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 04/2012
Aroma is slightly tart with wheat, yeast and some bubblegum. Flavour is somewhat floury and surprisingly thin with bubblegum, some banana, wheat and yeast. Refreshing and clean!
