2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours brown/dark amber with a large rocky white head. Aroma is sweet and wheatlike with some banana. Aroma has some plastic notes. Mouthfeel is wheaty smooth. Taste has excessive amount of fermentation aftertaste. I’ve tasted this before and thought this was decent but this batch tastes way off, quite bad and farty aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle, many thanks to Finn for this. Pours a firm, beige head with satisfying retention. Close to clear brown body with a deep, ruby shade. Cloudy last pour. Poor lacing. Smell om dark wheat and sweet malts balanced by notes of tartness. Caramel malts in the flavour character mixed with ripe banana, vanilla and citrus. More sweet than tart to the ending. Soft in the mouth. Fine bodied. Rather tasty this one (at home, Tromsø 12.10.2012).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko Muonio. Drukket hjemme 28 Sep 12. Mørkebrun med et lavt skum som flater ut. Litt filigranser. God søt fruktig aroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken brukbart fyldig. Plommer. Mandler. Litt søt, men bra balansert. Avslutter lett syrlig og etterlater en litt tørr ettersmak av mandler og tørket frukt. Ikke verst.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light brownish and murky. Like swamp water. Huge overripe-bananas- esters on nose. It feels a bit Belgian, actually. Like a double.. or duvel even on the nose. So much yeast esters. Body is fullish. But the belgian theme continues. Actually quite nice. Not as a wheat bock, but as a belgian strong ale. But there’s still the wheat twang, and some citrus. A bit of a short finish, some unpleasant ashy notes there. But overall quite nice. I would not recognize this as a wheat bock though, more as a really soft belgian strong ale.
