3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy pale orange colour and tight well maintained egg white head. Quite a peppery, spicy flavour with some bitter orange zest.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium white head bearing the imprint of a huge burst bubble. Hazy deep yellow body with light carbonation. Deep mealy banana aroma with earthy vaguely medicinal notes. Dry-sweetish dusty mealy earthy taste with banana and oil notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy banana aftertaste with mealy notes. Too true to type. Winds up being a little slack and characterless, but not a bad beer. (0.4l draft at Olympen, Oslo.)

Fra kran på Olympen 30 Jul 12. Mørk aprikosfarget. Ugjennomskinnelig. Litt luftig skum. God sitrusaroma. Smaken svakt søt fruktig med en litt syrlig ettersmak.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Gaasa, Oslo. Slightly hazy golden with a white head. Fruity aroma with yeast an a hint of banana and caramel. Pretty weak aroma. Sweet and lightly malty. Slightly watery. Lightly refreshing, but not my kind of hefeweissen. (2012-08-03)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 500ml [A little past BB date]
Pours clear golden, with low beige head, fully diminishing. Aroma is of bananas and fruits, yeast. Taste is of massive banana (syrup), fruits. Palate is lively. Overall: gushed at opening. Not a good beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 500 ml. Thanks to Patrick for this one. Clear orange beer with a fully diminishing white head. Strong notes of banana syrup in aroma with slight bubble gum and strawberries. Taste is the same as aroma with a slight acidic finish. Medium body. This one was 3 month past BB date, probably better fresh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Olympen
Hazy golden color, disappearing white head. Aroma of orange, yeast banana. Sweet taste, some spies, and banana. Some aspets are quite nice, but I think this beer is a bit too unbalanced, too dependant on the yeast character
