flying_pig (832) - SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2013
500ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow (£2.80):
Wheat and clove with lighter banana & a sweetness. Bubblegum and vanilla following on from the initial aroma. There is also some spice and touches of fruit that is reminiscent of either pears or light apples.
Clear, golden yellow with a very large, foamy white head that I expected for the style. There is visible evidence of carbonation and the head holds quite well.
Clove & banana are the focus of this one with the same hints of sweetness that feature in the smell. There is some wheat and a mix of citrus flavours with some bubblegum thrown in at the end for good measure.
Light medium in body with a little spice and a tang to it with lively carbonation. The beer is slightly dry towards the end with a crisp finish.

Not a bad beer, naturally lighter than a hefeweizen but also very similar in most aspects with the same combination of banana, clove and citrus notes although none come across as strong they would in a hefeweizen.

Luoto (22) - FINLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Warning for much froth when a settled bottle is opened. This is a reasonable if not slightly gassy light session beer. First taste was a little sour but the next mouthful went down without a problem. It gets better as it goes on. Not so strong smell but certainly it helps a thirst and it does not have that metallic taste that some cheaper beers can have. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Armadill0 (201) - FINLAND - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. Faint aroma with banana and yeast. Taste has banana, citrus, grain and yeast. Not top well rounded, a bit too crisp on the palate. Also has a slight bad sidenote of cardboard on the aftertaste. A decent wheat beer still.
