Moebbels (316) - FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
A hazy yellow body, covered by a very thin white head. Nose is very hoppy with notes of grass, hay, coriander and some pepper. Taste is bitter and hoppy with a longish dry finish. Carbonation is lively and smooth and the mouthfeel is kind of watery. Not a very good example of a weizen but perfectly drinkable.

Marstonlad (424) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Tap at Bruuveri, Helsinki. Pours amber with a medium-sized white head. Aroma is wheaty but contains also some aromatic hoppiness; fresh fruitiness, citrus and spicy notes appear. Taste is initially light sweet but later crisper and drier. Flavours include mostly fruits with pale maltiness in the backgroung; light lingering bitterness in the finish. Light, slick palate palate. Easy wheat ale, drinkable but a bit too lightly hopped.
