Enjoyed a draft pint of this beer in a trumpet glass at Porgu in Tallinn, Estonia. The beer had a very cloud straw-yellow-tan blended color with a large, foamy white head that had good retention, lacing, and cling. Its aroma had a floral and fruity blend with lighter citrus and lemon tones, along with some light banana, straw, and wheat scents. It was a somewhat sour beer with a straw and grain character mixed with some bitter earthy and floral flavors. The beer was wet and watery with low to average carbonation and a slightly creamy, filling mouthfeel.

thellgren (534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 23, 2015
0.2 l draught @ Suuret oluet pienet panimot festival, Helsinki. My first koduolu. Not like Finnish sahti. Taste and style name reminds the Finnnish kotikalja, which is dark low alcohol homemade ale. This is, however, strong and pale farm ale. Quite dry, reminds some saisons. Also some flavours reminds the Finnish low alcohol spring mead, vappusima. Very interesting and complicated taste. Not like any other beer or ale, Not sure if I like it, though.

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 12, 2015
1 liter PET bottle. Cloudy golden. No head to speak of. Initial smoky aroma. Then, juniper. Phenolic. Banana and bitter oranges. Refreshing once it enters the mouth. Some acidity. Refreshing beer. Well balanced. Rich and complex flavours. Body is light, but there are enough happening here to make this a really interesting beer. Strong, but very drinkable. (Thanks @larsga).

larsga (6929) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 12, 2015 Small white head. Hazy opaque yellow body. Powerful smoky mealy banana aroma, kind of wheat-like, oily herbal yoghurt notes. Dry, and faintly acidic, citric strawy smoky taste with yoghurty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Leaves a peppery, abrasive feeling in the mouth that lasts a long time. Dry, again faintly acidic, peppery yoghurty banana aftertaste with smoky orangey juniper notes. Very interesting, highly drinkable, and full of flavour. I like it. (1l PET bottle by devious means.)

On tap in a bar in Tallinn. Fragrant a farmhouse ale. Pleasant. Very refreshing, a little sour, a little bitterness.

MartR (169) - Aespa, ESTONIA - DEC 30, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2015 Hazy yellow, light body and smells a bit boozy. Lots a banana flavor and a little lemon. Tastes sweet, but also yeasty. Something different, yet highly drinkable and I like it. Can’t go pass the ElavOlu store without taking one.

Nocturne (1380) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2014
Tap at Põrgu, Tallinn. Ultra hazy yellow shade with a white head. Yeasty aroma, full on banana assault. Taste follows similar lines. Faintly bready with a dry finish that feels a little off at times. I can see where the homebrew comparisons are coming from. Pondering the style’s relationship to sahti was probably more interesting than the beer, but glad to have tried it.
