3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thick foam, very clear in colour. Noticeable feats of malt and wheat present in the taste. Even with the yeast filtered this beer has some typical Schneider notes. Very refreshing on a summer day.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Light to moderate, malty - lightly wheaty and sweetish aroma, some banana, faint fruitiness and spiciness. Body is light to medium, malty – lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish flavor, some banana, faint fruitiness and spiciness. Finish is short, malty and lightly wheaty and lightly sweetish, some fruitiness and banana. Quite one-dimensional and un-interesting kristallweizen.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle (K Market, Kamppi)
5 Estery fruity wheeaty aroma, quite sharp.
2 Pale, enormous brief head, but I did pour it like a doofus.
5 Minerally wateriness, quite chemical, a bunch of weird estery spikes too. None of the richness or breadiness I want from a wheat beer.
2+ Thin palate, soft carbonation. Initial finish is a blast of dodgy chemicals, but is does settle down to something pleasantly hoppy and wheaty.
8 Just not doing it for me. Not worth the annoyance of the taste and immediate finish in order to get the pleasant long finish.

500 ml bottle. Pale yellow colour, medium-sized foamy head. Aroma of wheaty malt, banana, citrus and spices. The flavour is sweetish wheaty, with notes of banana and spices. A little thin and bland.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Taste is very fresh. The wheat is light and has some grainy notes. The yeast is most dominant in the beer, giving banana, lemon and some pine-apple. The mouthfeel is smooth. Aftertaste is light and crisp.
