3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow. Classic spicy aroma, lightly fruity. Reasonable flavor, a residual sweetness, the spiciness is balanced by a light fruitness; flowery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewpub. Served too hot. Pale yellow-golden and a small, white head. Weak aroma with banana and some cloves. Sweet flavor with banana and grainy notes. Creamy, carbonated mouthfeel, but a bit thin and sticky. The finish has some lemony notes, as well as banana and spices. Not worth returning for. (060827)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2009 Draught, Oslo Mikrobryggeri. Bow-shaped trumpet with a collapsing head and lace dabs. Peach mistiness, not fully hazy. Authentic ripe estery aroma with banana, pepper, Hubba Bubba. Toffee apple and banana fizz, thinnish sherbety condition, clovey spice. ’Bananas galore’ chipped in Dirtman. No pithy US hops in sight, and it’s something of a relief. Clean, tanging and authentic, just lacking a bit of body. The pick of the beers sampled at the brewtap.

Medium lasting creamy white head over pale yellow faintly hazy body with ongoing carbonation. Soft, spicy banana aroma. Sweetish watery banana wheat taste with fuzzy mouthfeel. Some acidity. Faintly metallic aftertaste. A decent weizen, but a bit too watery. (On tap.)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Fine bread-like aroma. Mild taste, dominated by the citrus in the finish. A bit on the thin and watery side, I would ahve liked more substance.
I question the name and category - this was too filtered to be called a hefe IMHO.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light white head slowly departs from the rather dark, golden to amber pour. Warming fruity nose, playing more in the ester than phenol ballpark with citrusy lime/lemon flavors backed by solid banana puree and a firm dose of supporting hops. The mixture works pretty well to make a very fresh impression. Medium bodied, expansive, yet easy-going carbonation. A very satisfying first half-pint at this favorite Norwegian brewpub of mine.
