3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Probably the best commercial beer in Estonia, this nicely-spiced, estery, wheaty beer has a great aroma and compelling malt taste, marred only slightly by a soapy finish

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer has a amber color with a reddish orange glow. The beer has a sunny glow and a sunny color. The beer is very cloudy, the cloudiness reminds of the cloudiness a witbier can have. The beer pours a normal amount of rough white foam. The bulk of the foam collapses. A thin soft drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell is delicious. The smell has some witbier in it as well. I smell orange zest. I also smell some lemon and lime. The aroma’s also contains bittersweet almonds. There is also banana, to top the fruit bouquet. There might also be some coriander. The smell is also filled with delicious hop aroma’s. The taste is an exact representation of the smell. There is a delicious sweet fruity aroma, with the zest, lemon, lime and banana. The coriander, almond and hop is also present in the taste. Its a delicious beer, really great. Its a shame we don’t make a beer like this in the Netherlands.

Bottle. Amber hazy. Fruity, sort of hefeweizeny/bocky estery banana, fine clove on nose. Med light bodied, a bit of a steep dry finish. Weak malty, estery. Not really a koduõlu, but estery nice. Has that dull bulkness there too, unfortunately.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
BB 02.2016. Been meaning to try it for a while now. Pours all foam at first, it’s a bubbly, fluffy, off-white, moderately fast receding head. The body itself appears as murky translucent orange. The nose is kinda Belgian with nostril-burning esters and the not surprising bubblegum and banana notes. Strange, at points I also get a hint of dried and salted fish (vobla). Tastes really sweet, without anything to back it up - the watery palate is of no help. Malty, yeasty, watery sourish, and finishes herbal bitter. The mouthfeel is rather soft (it’s an unfiltered Saku!) and the finish kinda dry. Carbonation rather active. Best when very cool. Definitely among the best by Saku, but still weak. Would perhaps pass as an acceptable low-ABV Belgian Ale.

Aroma is strongly wild strawberries. How can one beer have such strong strawberryish scent? Really gratifying... Appearance is amber, hazy, minimal head. Taste is sweet and fruity. Hints of orange, pears, juniper and various herbs. Has a medium body and slightly creamy texture. Really soft carbonation and pleasant finish. Although a mass product, it feels exactly like it was brewed at home. Really nice.
