2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Botthe shared with MichaelBruch. Deep brown in colour with low head and thin body. The aroma is just awful, hints of old clothes came into my mind. The taste is not that bad like to be expected, it is more like sour rye bread and a Kellerbier.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2014 Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours murky light brown with a medium-sized frothy head. Aroma is typical for a hefeweizen; it is both fruity and spicy. The emphasis is on wheaty maltiness with a touch of rye and banana. Taste, however, is more original, as it is influenced by rye. It is on the whole quite sweet but balanced. Toffee, banana and darker fruity esters feature with notes of rye and toasty malts. The palate is medium bodied, slick and very drinkable. This is one of my favourite wheat beers: it has all the attributes of a good hefeweizen but is also original, even a bit similar to sahti. Overall a distinctive rye hefeweizen.
