3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle from Vimonopolet. Hazy golden with a bigh white head. Smell of banana hit me when I opened the bottle. Lots of banana in the aroma, but also citrus, spices, malt and yeast. Sweet and fruity with a slightly dry and slightly bitter finish. Nice summer beer!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy, medium orange body with a large, rocky and creamy off-white head with ok longevity and ditto lacing capabilities. Sweet, thick (yeah, thick, why not?) and strong aroma, reminds me of a weizen bock. Sweet fruits (banana), spices, yeast, perfume, soap and citric hints. Light sweet and light acidic taste and an unusually bitter finish. Very spicy flavours which combined with the almost stinging perfume notes and the bitter finish make this beer almost a bit rough, at least compared to other sugary banana hefeweizens. A very tasty, crisp, refreshing, lively carbonated beer with a medium body and watery to oily texture. A bit unusual for a hefeweizen, perhaps, but who cares.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 4 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Ullevål Stadion, Oslo]

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5l bottle. This one pours a heavy clouded almost murky orange-ish body with a big fluffy and lacing white head. It’s really banana sweet with lots of wheat, yeast and spices. Cloves I suppose. Quite intense actually, and not bad at all. Perhaps a bit to much? It has a average carbonation level and a mild oily texture. Flavors are also quite present. Lot’s and lot’s of ripe banana sweetness! Perhaps the most I’ve ever found in a wheat, and I also get tons of pepper! Not directly burning in the mouth, but definitely stingy. Wheaty finish with more pepper in the aftertaste. I served this fridge-cold, but some how it feels warm and it’s almost like it’s lacking some freshness. Nice enough and I’ll gladly admit that it tasted pretty good with a beer right about now, but I don’t feel the need to purchase this again. 05.05.2012

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small head, reddish cloudy appearance (more than usual!). Rather thin taste and aftertaste. Somewhat bitter. An OK hefeweisse, especially since its brewed in Sweden, but it doesnt hold against the best german ones.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a thick hazy straw-hued yellow body with a small white head. Nose is bread dough, banana, hints of straw, grains and clove. Taste is straw, clove, doughy grain tones and hints of soap. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. Grassy bitter notes in the aftertaste; this seems to be slightly more hoppy than many in its genre which also makes it more refreshing. A quite nice hefeweizen, all in all.

Hazy golden colour with a white head. Wheat, banana and light citric aroma. Not a typical german hefe weize. More citric than banana in the flavour. Very refreshing and tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is the usual mix of banana, cloves, and actually has a light citron touch. Appearance is hazy golden with à white head. Flavour is the same as in the nose, good, but nothing that stands out.
