Bottled (BBE 10/2001). Yellowish golden colour with small white foamy head and some particles floating around. The particles are probably some strange things due to the age of the beer. Aroma is bready, grainy and surprisingly citrusy and wheatlike. Flavour is wheat, some interesting sweet grainyness as well as some mild fruityness as well. The sweet grainyness leaves me thinking what that actually is, but it could also be something due to age. Interestingsly enough, this beer has held as well. Not a wit nor a Weizze, but probably one of the first wheat lagers in Finland (this wheat lager thing was a hit in Finland some 3-4 years ago, when one summer we suddently had a few of those, though this beer was ahead of it’s times). Some of these "Theme Koff" beers actually have been very nice (of those around when I began rating I remember Kaura and a few others, which then we’re taken off market at some point). Those were still tasty, so even macros can do good stuff every now and then.

Bottle, somewhere around 2003. Can’t really call this a witbier, as the taste seemed watered-down compared to the true renditions. The flavor was bizarre, bringing to mind Finnish Camping Lenkki processed meat sausages.

FatPhil (15562) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 12, 2007
330ml bottle. Too sticky to be a Wit, an insult to the style. Filtered, which removes any interesting character that the ingredients might have had. Disinctively wheat-based, with some coriander, but in general quite disappointing.

Refreshing summer beer. No substitute for the German ones, though. Unfortunately there are no Finnish wheat beers available at the moment, at least from the larger breweries.

Pale golden, crystal clear. Somewhat sweetish, clean, aroma of citrus and coriander.

Oakes (16952) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2001
I don’t know if this is a filtered version of the departed Kruunu or not, but it is very much like a witbier, with a light palate, and some citrus accent. Not as good, and especially not as complex, as Kruunu was.
