A- Wheat, spice, banana, citrus.
A- Dark yellow color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Bananas, cloves, slight spice, slightly sweet, wheat.
P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, smooth finish.
O- Lots of banana here and not a ton of spice. A pretty good hefe that drinks easily. Not a lot to say about this beer, but it’s a solid one in it’s own respect.

I never would have thought that my first beer from Russia would be a German Hefeweizen but what the hell? This wheat ale certainly looks like it came from Germany. Body is a cloudy yellow with a generous, pillowy head - excellent. The yeast and wheat malt aroma is reserved but nice. Taste has a good amount of banana. I just wish it had more yeast and spice. Still, this is an okay representation of the style and it’s plenty refreshing.

Pours a hazy golden color, topped with lots of white head, retention very nice.
Sweet malty and wheaty aroma are easily picked upt.
Taste is sweet with lots of wheat, fruity.
I’m not a fan of wheat beers, but I found this one nicely drinkable (though very sweet).

Hazy blond colour. Aroma and flavour are strong with banana. The quality is good but it’s far too sweet for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Appearance: Poured a straw yellow color, cloudy, had about two fingers worth of a head on it that retained and laced nicely.
Aroma: You can defiantly smell the yeast in this beer, but it is not overwhelming. Bit of lemon and spice smell to it as well.
Taste: Clove and banana flavor, a bit of vanilla. Light citrus taste. Hint of nutty flavors. The best way to describe it is Banana nut bread with a little lemon.
Mouth feel: Good amount of carbonation, Smooth body. It went down smooth.
Serving type: bottle

Bottle at home from notes. Pours hazy gold color with a medium sized, frothy white head that lasts with some lacing. The aroma and flavor had banana, pale wheat malt with some bubble gum notes and a dry finish. Light body and about what I thought it would be.

Butelka. Barwa żółta, zmętniona. Piana bujna i drobna. W aromacie sa banany i goździki, całkiem przyjemne. W smaku sa nuty bananowe, słodowe, lekko kwaśne. Pijalne i orzeźwiające.

From a 500 ml bottle poured in a novelty glass. Had low expectations but this is actually a very decent german-style wheat beer. A bit thin on the palate and a bit chemical on the nose and lacking the strong bready aroma’s you’d look for, but still very solid with no off tastes and enough wheat flavor to go around and a good sweetness balance.

50 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ the Groshland supermarket, Utrecht. Hazy golden with a thick white head. Banana and cloves aroma. Fairly thin taste and short aftertaste. Not a bad weizen but not that great either.
