UPDATED: SEP 18, 2008 Draught at the brewpub. Distinct clove aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Very small tan head. The flavour is nicely spicy, mostly clove, little citrus. Quite bitter for a Hefeweizen, and also quite sweet. But quite good, could have been made in Germany. High carbonation. 7 3 7 3 16

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin white head. Hazy opaque orange body. Fruity mealy banana aroma with florist notes. (Florist is right. Smells a bit like a florist shop.) Dryish sweetish mealy yeasty floral taste with banana notes. Sharpish mouthfeel, probably from carbonation in the mouth. No real aftertaste, just perfumy traces of ash and milk. Still, quite a good effort. (0.3l draft at Teerenpeli Kamppi, Helsinki.)

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Teerenpeli, Helsinki). Looks horrible, sort of mustard yellowbrown, with even cloudiness all the way through. Nose is mainly wheat, yeast and some banana. Flavor has some nice hops, yeast and some fruits. More of dry than sweet which is good. Some acidiness. All in all, it’s the only finnish hefe-weizen I’ve tasted and quite a good one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught in Helsinki.
A summery weize with fine citrus zing. A little banana, too, but that is swept away by the fresh lemon finish. Refreshing!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2007 Keg (Teerenpeli Kamppi, Helsinki)
Bizarrely orange coloured, looks a bit odd. Smells strongly of the wheat and characteristic bananas, some corriander too. Smooth sweet and refreshing taste, but lacks some of the bite or sharpness with the style.

Orange colored, hazy appearance. Little vanishing white head. Strongly sweet, fenoly, yeasty and banana aroma.
Medium bodied. Crispy palated. Flavor has also lots of banana and sweetness with mild yeast. Aftertaste is slightly dry with lasting banana. Round ending. Good basic weisse.
