I think this is the same, stated "Marsalkka Luomevehnä Suodattamaton, 6.0% ABV.
33 cl bottle thanks to Ingo! BB 06-2014, sampled on April 18, 2014.
Slight bit hazy golden color, off-white head. A bit estery, phenolic, clove, spicy, sweet, hints of sassafras scent. Sweet, some smoke, phenolic, burnt taste. Burnt, dry, rubber aftertaste. A bit heavy on the phenoles this one, and not all in a good way either. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness. Nicer scent than taste, taste feels off.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Pleasant banana and toffee wheaty aroma. Crisp palate, full sweet wheaty body, Nice bite, some grassiness, perhaps hops, quite zesty too. Very aromatic in the mouth, tons of esters. Good wheat, none of the grunge you can get from luomu grains. Finish has light honey-coated breakfast cereals. Prefered the clean pour to the yeastier one, the yeast made it a bit too muddy.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is almost banana-like, with still some yeast hints. It is both good and a bad thing. Also a bit like what it tastes when milk forms curdles with sour liquids, resembling vomit. So this also tastes a bit like cider too, also because it’s quite fruity too, and yeah, unfiltered.
Anyway this is very pleasant and strong, not too bitter and not too much hops. Almost caramellic and abundant malt, resembling some Belgian beers.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33 bottle. Cloudy, orange color and a small, white head of very poor retention. The aroma is relatively soft and bears the typical features of a weizen beer, namely banana, citruses, and wheat though it’s more malty than usual and quite sweet too. Taste is sweet and sour with the former predominating, quite a lot of wheat but also some citruses, not as balanced or refreshing. Medium body, slick texture, and lively carbonation. Finish features more citruses and sourness, as time passes some bitter notes appear as well. Overall the beer has let me down, I frankly expected something better or at least more balanced; mediocre.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Golden, cloudy, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty – some wheat and sweetish aroma, some caramel and some fruitiness, some banana and light hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty – some wheat and sweetish flavor, light caramel and fruitiness, light banana and light hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty – some wheat and lightly sweetish, faint caramel and fruitiness, light hoppyness and faint alcohol. OK weizen bock - not overly sweet, light bitterness in the finish. Quality problems in some batches.
