suurjuust (1031) - 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 (6001) - 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 (2659) - 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 (5703) - 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 (7779) - 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!

Tap at Porku. Very cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. The nose is great. Lots of melon, pear and a little bit of banana. Very fruity and estery. Lots of bright wheat character and a little bit of spice. Sort of an intriguing herbal spiciness along with some light smoke. Fresh and juicy and very, very, interesting. Reminds me of the Lithuanian Vilniaus kvietinis baltas that I had yesterday. Really interesting stuff. Second rate - two days later same location. Hazy yellow-gold pour with a touch of sweet banana. More tart thanit was the first time around. A little bit of sour banana and a little bit of odd sweaty dank flavour. It’s more tart and less herbal/spicy than the first time around, but it’s equally interesting.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2011
Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF tasting. Pours a cloudy creamy yellow, with a small white head. Strong banana, caramel, slight booxiness and a mellow finish

Hermod (3140) - Vantaa, FINLAND - AUG 1, 2011
Tried it at SOPP 2011. Poured murky orange with a thin, but creamy looking head. Aroma was very fruity with a lot of yeast, slightly sweetsour. Flavor was riped banana, sweat, lots of yeast. Sweet long finish. Interesting, but as sahti isn´t really my favourite style, this one didn´t really cause any hoorays.

Finwe (412) - Grankulla, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Draught @ SOPP 2011. Hazy yellow with a white head. Typical aroma of banana induced by baker’s yeast; some sweetness also included. Sweet, sahti-like flavour with banana, juniper and yeast. Obviously good if you are into this style.
