500ml bottle from Tescos. A good attempt at a German wheat beer style. Cloudy gold colour with a big, off-white head. The usual aromas of banana, cloves and yeast. The flavours were the same with some lemon as well. Good.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
