3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden with a firm and creamy head. Aroma of sweetish banana and some lemon, feels quite thin, and fades quickly. Wheaty-lemony flavor with mild banana fruitiness, and some cardboard and cereals in the finish. Light and slightly watery body, but reasonably refreshing with fizzy carbonation. Like expected, fits between the NA and regular versions, but feels a bit closer to the NA one. The only reason for buying this would be, that you’re in Finland (or Sweden), and the state monopoly stores are closed or too far away.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle 0,5 l. Golden yellow, hazy with a thick white head. Nose is slightly fruity, banana, fresh and watery. Flavor is only slightly wheaty, tart, sour and a bit citric. Not much body and watery thin. I think it’s either a non alc or the real thing, this doesn’t work.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
50 cL bottle. Pours cloudy and golden yellow with a huge slight off-white head. Banana ester fruity aroma. Mild banana fruity flavour, light wheaty. Distinctively lacks body/texture to be any good. Slight flat and light wheaty finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Clear yellow ale with a large, fluffy, white head. Lengthy retention. The aroma is of citric acid and yeast... lemony and a touch breadsy. No esters or phenols of note. Nice! Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Citrusy flavor... lightly sweet; moderately tart. Crisp, tangy, refreshing finish. Much better than expected!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great head, and sweet lemon grass smell, this beer was a little sweeter than most hefeweizens, and a little bit hard to drink due to the overpowering sweetness, but still preferable to most beer in general

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Light golden coloured. Hazy. Dense off white head. Aroma of light yeast, light banana and vague spice. Flavour as well is light and quite bland. Yeast and banana is notable. Light citric and yndoubtedly wheaty. Very thin bodied, and hasn’t much to offer in the long run. Uninteresting and not comparable with the fantastic Weihenstephaner Hefe.
