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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 500 ml, poured into a Guinness pint glass at home. ABV 4.8% New style tick.
Pours a cloudy and slighty hazy deep golden orange to light amber coloured beer, with two full fingers of mostly white head, thick, with okay retention for the most part. After most of it has collapsed a quite thick layer of foam remains on the surface.
Aroma of ripe bananas, clove, yeast. This smells actually like a hefeweizen and now that I think about it looks like a dunkel too. Some glue as well.
Taste is sweet, fruity, again something light chemical and glue like in it but it’s not as bad as it sounds actually. Notes of spices, some juniper berries.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, light dryness on the palate.
Overall I think this is one of the safest for the style, nothing very weird about it and it brought to mind well known styles, but it surely intrigued me to try more of this style.

2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours hazy copper, nice white head that stays for a while. Aroma: it smells really like good hefeweizen (ironically it smells more hefeweizen than acutal hefeweizen’s by Saku!). Taste: very sweet, sourness, no bitterness at all. Medium carbonation. Overall:not really my kind of beer, it smells and looks better than tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Murky yellow color, small white head, some lace. Banana wheaty aroma. Some tart note, banana flavors. Decent German Hefeweizen but not a Koduõlu.

Pretty cloudy unfiltered beer with a lot yeast in it. Brown amber color. Not that nice appearance but final rating is very positive. Good beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 bottle. Dirty amber color, very opaque, small, instantly disappearing head. Very strong yeasty aroma consisting mostly of vanilla, banana, clove, spices and a touch of juniper; strongly resemblant of German Hefeweizens. Sweet taste, again banana and vanilla, hints of spices, smoke and juniper all nicely harmonized. Medium body, creamy texture and soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and mostly sweet though it does have more of that yeasty sourness. Overall the beer is pleasant and drinkable, it is the first of the kind that I am drinking and has positively surprised me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Hazy copper amber color. Sweet aroma of banana, clove, pepper and juniper. Sweet taste of banana, clove, pepper and tart citrusy spruce/juniper twigs. Medium to full body. Quite nice, would certainly be better with higher strength but does not suffer badly from lower alcohol percentage.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber color. Off-white head, that leaves some lacing. Aroma has notes of caramel, yeast and some fruits. Taste is sweetish and fruity with a pleasant hint of bitterness. Nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. Very soft carbonation. Suprisingly delicious and drinkable brew. (500ml bottle, BB 060214, poured in a Schott Zwiesel Brussel -glass).

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle @ Dean’s Birthday tasting, courtesy of deanso. Pours a hazy golden beer with a thick white head on top. Aroma of banana and fruity yeasty esters. Flavor is quite sweet and fruity again. Very flat and watery mouthfeel, has a short finish. Decent flavors and aroma’s going on, too bad for the body..
