Keg (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Kekri05)
Hazy brown, healthy tight head. Banana and estery aroma, becomes a little smoky after a while. Sticky mouthfeel - very full bodied and sweet. Huge fruity and spicy taste - soft wheaty base, plums, apples, and bananas, and a tang of cloves and ginger. Doesn’t seem 7%. Very decent example of the style; very Plevna. Should rerate.

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2006
Draught at Plevna (29 sept. 2005). Hazy brown color. Banana and clove in the aroma with hints of smoke and sauna. Delicious and a bit unusual aroma. Sweetish, rounded and full-bodied palate with less carbonation than usually in wheat beers. Bread and plums in the flavor with only light clove and banana notes. The finish is dryer, fruity, lightly alcoholic and acidic. Excellent, finish could be better though.

nicholai (100) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2005
draught @ pikkulintu. Cloudy, brownish with a 2 finger head, craggy head. Apple, yeast, and sweetness in the aroma - almost overwhelmed by some smoky hints. The taste is sweet, with a lingering aftertaste. No apparent alcohol. Slight bite. A tad bit watery.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2005
Draught @Plevna
Hazy nut brown, nice small creamy tanned head. Aroma has lots of fruity banana esters and wheat. Not sweet but a bit smokey nose. Taste is like you could expect: hefeweizen on drugs. Very balanced: Plevna’s Vehnä is doped with their Bock. Medium to almost full-bodied weizen which has so much speed that when it finally breaks, you can taste some rubber. Good example of this style.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2005
(Draught @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki) Muddy brown color with almost no head. Strong, quite sahti-like, phenolic and fruity banana aroma - very nice. The vineous flavor is not so impressive with some harsh alcohol and some odd sidetaste. Lots of fruit, sone tannic acids and yeast, along with some sugary sweetness. Long, bitter (not very pleasantly so) aftertaste in the back of mouth. Medium-bodied, somewhat thick, "sahti-rough" palate, but - strangely enough - still feels a bit watery. One cannot say this isn’t a good try, but it needs some refining to be on par with the Germans. Very nice in small doses, anyway.
