Palme (3365) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2014
0.5l bottle. It’s quite dirty and murky looking in the glass this one. Deep and dark charcoal grey with a nice big lasting slowly fading beige head. On the nose this is mild malty with tones of dry licorice, burned matches sulfur and some dark candied sugars. Molasses also detected along with hints of yeasty banana. Strange but not directly unpleasant. Tastes nice enough. Yeah, the banana goes wild in the taste and dominates the rest of the flavors. Feels oily in the mouth and it’s just below average on the bubbles. Dark malts, traces of cold dry chocolate and a ashy tail. The yeasty banana dominates this imo strange style combo. Absolutely drinkable. 08.06.2014

nimsk (11) - SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle from Beet’s, Leith, Edinburgh. Cloudy, very dark amber brown, pours with almost no head. Smoky banana nose, taste of dark chocolate and malt, burnt caramel, cinder toffee - that kind of thing! A nice warming brew.

zacgillbanks (2302) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This hazy dark brown-black beer pours with a creamy white head. It has burnt currants, rich red fruits, banana and liquorice flavours followed by a slight nutty and warming dark fruity finish.

lusikka (6239) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of wheat, banana, bread and toffee. Rich flavour of bread, wheat, pungent herbal notes, banana, toffee, salt, some citrus, plums and nuttiness. Full bodied and warming mouthfeel. The sweetness here is very mellow. Highly enjoyable, and despite the ABV the drinkability is dangerously good.

Wonderfully complex with bubblegum, chocolate and the standard wheat beer banana and clove notes on the palate. So smooth you would quickly forget it is 8% (dangerous!) One of my favourite beers of recent times. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TET (1641) - FINLAND - JUL 22, 2014
A bottle. A dark brown beer with a big and beige head. Aroma has wheat and some bananas, cloves and other spices, some dark toffee, quite fresh. Taste has wheat, clearly roasted, cloves, not much of sweetness, the end is dry and spicy, also some roastiness. Medium bodied, smooth, high carbonation. Quite light and surprisingly refreshning. Spicy, dark and nicely refreshning weizenbock.

elbernays (499) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 12, 2014
500ml bottle from Blackrock cellar. Pours brown with tan suds head. Lots of sweet bubblegum on nose, some bread, yeast and spice in background. Taste is overwhelmingly bubblegum, juicy fruit, pear, slight alcohol finish. Medium body. ABV hidden behind the massive sweetness. Very bubbly. Too sweet and bubbly.
