Tap at brewpub. Dark copper color, good off-white head. Aroma has sticky toasted, overriped banana. Light-bodied, active carbonation. Flavour has toasted notes, riped banana. Not so sweet as aroma. Watery finish. Unbalanced.

Browny. Ripe banana, some roast. Malty bready. Smooth mouthfeel. Some dirt, yeast. Bit lacking flavour, but those that’s there are alright. Banana estery, quite some dirt dust though. Not that nice overall. Has good potential, but there’s just too much dirt-tasting shit in here for one to appreciate the good estery weiss flavours (which are there!)

Draught @ the brewpub
Aroma has rather sweet toffee candy. Also a slight feeling of house aroma in the background. Creamy and foamy palate. Flavour is rather weird and messy. It starts with sweet toffee, gets overridden by tartness typical to Koulu beers, turns to grapefruit and ends up dry with minerals leaving a watery feeling. Aroma was promising but flavour is just too messy and tart. Gets some unpleasant milky tones at the middle of the glass.

Mild banana and spicy nose. Pale beige head. Hazy pale brown color. Full filled wheaty taste. Fruity and average hopped. Not too sweet. At the end hoppy bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Hazy brown colour. Medium head is foaming and quite creamy. Wheaty aroma has some light fruitiness, banana and sour yeastiness. Dryish taste has sourness of yeast and some medium sweet maltiness. Light to medium bodied palate. Fizzy carbonation. Simple and boring.

Dark red/brown colour with a small head. Yeasty, roasted wheaty aroma with a strong note of banana. Sweetish taste. A bit too watery body with harsh carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at brewpub. Murky brown with slightly rocky firm pale head. Nose is strong ripe banana, grainy roasted wheat, little dry smokiness and vanilla. Spritzy wheaty flavor, strong yeastiness and lingering halstablett herbs. Faint liquorice in there too. Somehow reminds me of kotikalja actually. Strongly carbonated, refreshing palate. Quite nice roasty dunkelweizen.

Draught (Koulu, Turku)
Deep hazy red, small head. Very cold (and it is -2C outside, for pitys sake). Sweet slightly grainy bananaey aroma. Beautiful full body, but very sharp carbonation. Good grainy taste, and real kick, not just some sweet fruity nonsense. Some pleasant hops too - real hops. Fills out very well as it warms. Their #2 beer after their porter, IMHO.

I couldn’t resist this brew when I saw that rsmeds and oh6gdx had tried it out. I took a pitstop on my way to the Aland islands myself. Hazy brown in colour. Minor brown head, lacings. The aroma wow, a banana like aroma with hops. Very filling and appealing. The flavour is refreshing hops, wheat and something that reminds me of banana. But it’s quite watery though. There is a wheaty and refreshing aftertaste.
