3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours pale hazy yellow with a small head. Slightly sour aroma with citrus and juniper notes. Taste is dryish at first, but then the sweetish yeast and fruity notes strengthens. A taste of alcohol is clearly distinguishable. Feels more like weizenbock than sahti/koduolu. (Draught at the craft beer festival in Helsinki).

Draught @ SOPP 2014
Pours murky yellow with a smooth head. Aroma of yeast, wheaty notes, tartness and farmyard. Taste is yeasty and earthy with loads of juniper, banana and farmyard. Finish is yeasty and stuffy with some banana and farmyard. This tastes like a mix of a weizenbock and Sahti.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap@sopp2014. Yellow, milkshake-y. Bananas, strong asparagus, malts and yeast. Full bodied, but nicely enjoyed, doesn’t cloy much at all. This is an eastery, volatile, drink. I can’t say I fancy the asparagus, this time, usually it’s been mellower. My score is sort of an average over all the times I’ve had this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Porgu (Hell, in Estonian) in old town Tallinn, Estonia. The beer was listed as "Pihtla, Saarema Koduöla."
Opaque, cloudy pastel dusty orange with a 1-finger creamy off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of cider, bananas foster, cloves, earthy yeast, orange, caramel and spices. As the beer warms, the more the cider aroma fades and the more an overripe banana flavor becomes more prominent.
Taste of bananas foster, clove, wheat, spices, earthy yeast, apple, orange, very sweet caramel, pineapple and a hint of juniper.
Medium/full body and medium carbonation.
Sweet and very fruity with a saison-like yeast, earth and spiciness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Põrgu. Pours hazy straw with white head. The head stays. Aroma is sweet, yeast, banana. Taste is sweet and sour, a little bit soapy, alcohol, wheat. Overall: I was expecting something very different, since I have tried several Saaremaa koduõlus before and they are usually pretty awful yeasty messes. This is just decent wheat beer. Ohh and it goes down really well for the ABV!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very strange beer, definately worth tasting. Minimal head, milk texture, full body, orange colour. Unfiltred and very strong. Aroma a liitle bit similar to Hefe-Weizen but in general beer different from any other I’ve drunk earlier.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hana @ Pörgu. Kaatuu lasiin kullankeltaisena ja täysin sameana, vaahto on pieni ja tiivis. Hajussa on makeaa kuivattua hedelmää, voimaisuutta, katajanmarjaisuutta ja hieman maamaisuutta. Maku on makean marjainen, banaaninen, mausteinen, kypsän hedelmäinen ja maamainen, kaikkia melko tasaisesti. Suutuntuma on keskitäyteläinen ja makean tahmaava, hiven humalaakin on joukossa. Loppu on yllättävänkin kuiva. Perushyvä olut, jota vaikea kategorisoida mihinkään ryhmään. Pidin kuitenkin.
