2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (batch 384, old backlog). Hazy yellowish pale golden colour with a creamy thick white head that lasts for quite a good while. Aroma is grass, some citrus, mild yeast, herbs and some slight gluelike notes. Flavour is quite similar with some slight toffee and mild cardboardy/earthy notes as well. Quite typical thin palated wheat, just like the American wheats usually are.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Kittys, Helsinki, 20110805) The beer poured golden and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had hops, clove and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were hops, fruitiness, clove, malts, metallicness and bitterness. Adding yeast made the beer worse. A decent easy-to-drink beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
7- Stunning sharp dark berry aroma at first. Later it’s more traditionally wheaty. Some creamed corn spoils it even later.
3 Bold gold, brief spongy head.
6 Lovely light grains, quite white-bready and with honey-like hints. Slight wooliness too.
4- Full palate, just a little tingle from carbonation, amd also from lovely biting hops. They come over as noble with that bitter bite.
14- Breaking free from teh 4.7% shackles, this has a really full taste. Great bready body, and lovely real hops in the finish make this a very solid wheat beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled 330ml (Kitty’s, batch #384, BBE 08/2011)
Slightly hazy yellow color, good steady white head. Fruity nose has lychee and pineapple. Medium-bodied. Front is a bit boring with slightly grainy and yeasty sweet bun flavor, finish has nice exotic fruityness. Some banana notes. I suppose that this beer is better from fresh tap, now a bit let down.
