2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Brygghuset, Vimmerby. Huge head, as can be expected. Aroma is in no way subtle, lots of wheat - but unfortunately reminds me of 1664’s horrible shot at the style.. Very artificial and soapy tasting. Glad I won’t have to drink this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Some banana and spice in the nose, pours cloudy gold with big head and good spritzy carbonation. Quite lemony, sour wheatiness. Mouthfeel a bit thin. Aftertaste a bit murky. Not bad, but missing something.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, pours a cloudy pale, but bright, gold with a bubbly fizzy head. A strong wheatty aroma with bananas, berries and some spice. At first deliciously effervescent and citric, but then more ash-malt towards a disappointingly dirty finish.

Thanks to Duff for bringing back. This 2003 edition expires remarkably in October 2007. A beigish tinge with a good initial head. I am divided on the aroma, it is a bit sour and wheaty, and there is a bit of lace on the way down. It is a good carbonation and drinkable, with some creaminess in the mouth.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Opaque yellow-golden with a smallish head. Fresh banana-strawberry aroma. Very clean, almost boring, banana-fruity flavor with a slightly acidic finish. Medium-bodied, slightly sticky and foamy palate. Quite refreshing, but not very complex.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly clowded yellow, typical citrus wheat nose, and typical rounded light fruity wheat flavour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(50 cl bottle at Rotary Pub, Göteborg) A bit shady yellow color, big fluffy lasting white head. Very beautiful head when poured right. Estery banana typical hefe wiess scent, refreshing and summer like. Spicy, banana and sweet taste. Spritzy high co2 mouthfeel, like it should be in this type of beer. Low bitterness. Spicy, sweet and banana aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle from Tesco. Slightly cloudy yellow with a large, loose, white head; cinnamon aroma; sweet and dry in the mouth with developing banana flavour; very dry finish. Overall a reasonable weissbier but lacking the depth of flavour of the best examples.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2007 I was apprehensive trying a Ukranian bier. No need to be - this is a real humbdinger of a brew. A cloudy yellowness and sweet, citrussy weissbier flavour. It comes in a fake Erdinger bottle, which is amusing, but for me this is the real deal and, unlike some Ukranians we know, (i.e. Herr Schevchenko) this is no waste of money!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rich aroma of herbs and spices. Cloudy mellow yellow in colour with a decent white head. Bit of a weird taste, similar to the weissbier classic but just off the mark. Rich after notes, slightly chemical after taste I’m afraid.
