3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Freshly poured as "live beer" (shopping mall near Tallinn, Elav Õlu dispensers of live beer (live yeast, not filter, not pasteurized)). Excellent what beer, possibly not as close to traditional ale. Aroma is of fresh yeast and wheat. Very mild carbonation, almost no head. Malt: hay, cereal. Hops: citrus, grass ans summer in general. Yeast is present, but really enjoyable. Pale golden, and cloudy as best hefeweizens. Medium sweet, and lightly bitter. Full body, thick texture. A bit acidic finish. If you will have a chance - definitely worth a try. Not for everyday drinking (a bit to heavy for me). Serving suggestion: brie and some toast.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
@ 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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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)
