Marstonlad (328) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2012
@ SOPP 2012. The color is interesting, looks like apple sauce and caffe latte. Aroma is a lot like sahti: full of banana and a little juniper, very fruity and spicy. Taste is really sweet; malts, overripe banana and spices. The body is full and thick. A very interesting beer, and for all who like sahti, a very good beer also.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - AUG 8, 2012
Draught at SOPP. Hazy yellow with a tiny white head. Malt, yeast, banana and some citrusy notes in the aroma. Flavor is slightly sour with malt, wheat and some spiciness.

omhper (18944) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 30, 2012
Draught at SOPP, Helsinki. My first ever koduõlu! Muddy straw colour, some head. Sahti-like aroma of sourdough, banana and bubblegum. Mid sweet with medium body and soft mouthfeel. Rye bread,m spicy hops and bubblegum. Low bitterness. Relaxed, mildly rusti and nicely drinkable. Really good!

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Draught @ SOPP 2012, Helsinki.
Pours a hazy, murky yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of orange, yeast and sweet maltiness. Flavour of sweet malts, banana, orange, yeast and some spiciness. Alcohol comes through a bit. Very smooth mouthfeel and a sweet, malty, caramel and fruitiness. Very tasty. I’m glad that I managed to taste this.

suurjuust (843) - ESTONIA - JUN 17, 2012
Hazy yellow, small white quickly dissipating head. Nose is sweet banana with funky barnyard notes, yeast, some weak spice. Taste has a bit more pronounced funk to it, some smoke and wood, more banana sweetness. Finish has some bitterness, warming alcohol and caramel to it. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel.

Glouglouburp (5929) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
In short: A nice wheat beer (banana cake, etc) with a strong farmhouse character (borderline funky). Very good
How: A few hand-bottles shared by FatPhil, filled directly in Estonia a consumed a few days later in lost village of Lithuania
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is banana bread with a nice farmhouse character. Taste has a lot of soft wheat, a refreshing creamy bananas cake, mild wheaty acidity, some farmhouse, some funk. Body is full and carbonation is lively, the pillowy mouthfeel is very nice. The finish is rather dry. I didn’t have many wheat beers (if any) with a nice funk but without losing the true wheat ale personality, and I want more beers like this. This beer is fucking awesome, and maybe I should have mentioned it before, but all my ratings are NSFW if you are a bus driver.

Marduk (2009) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 27, 2012
Tap @Põrgu. Soggy light brown, orange color. No head, flat. Very watery, light sweet aroma, honey, wheat. Somewhat watery taste, sweet malts, honeyish aftertaste, alcohol. Not bad.

TaktikMTL (5545) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
Bouteille directement du fût. Merci à FatPhil. Arôme: Odeur de blé avec une pointe fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est blonde. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales avec une pointe de melon miel. Longue durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de melon miel en arrière goût. (Rating #4226)

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
This frothy Koduõlu delivers plenty of wheat flavors atop banana esters and earthy funk.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sticky head of foam covers the cloudy beige-y white.
-The drying finish shares light wooden smoke.
-The mouthfeel is very comfortable.
-This is a wonderful introduction to Koduõlu.

Bottled from tap. Thx for the opportunity, Phil and Anna!
