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.

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)

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!

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