It’s a crafty imitation of German Hefeweizen. Average aroma, average taste. I would select this again for some reasons.

Tasted with a group of friends against a certain Hefeweizen made in Erding. Although both beers were very similar, the stronger (fun) bubblegum component on the nose and taste won the sympathies of all the group for this Russian version.

I think mine must have gone off because the taste is far too yeasty. I’ll have to try this one again another time.

I enjoyed it because it was warm and sunny. Otherwise, there’s nothing special about this chemical hefe weizen.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
550 ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow a large white slowly fading head. Aroma and Taste of wheat, some grassy notes, lightly fruity and slightly barn yard. Palate is a medium body, with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a taste of wheat, grassy notes, light fruity. Basically a fairly boring brew, very non descript. ok for a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy, pale golden beer with a nice, white head on top. Aroma is yeasty, citrussy and has little hints of banana. Flavour is medium sweet, wheaty and light on lemon. Aftertaste is short, medium sweet again. Not too special, just an average weizen.

The Russians make alcohol other than vodka!??! This cloudy gold beer has a slightly spicy aroma. It has the distinctive flavor of a pilsner. A well done beer.

Bottle shared with Joes, Dutchdrebus and Martinus. Hazy yellow color, medium to full sized white head that diminishes quickly. Smell and taste wheat, banana, sweetish and a slight touch of lemon. Soft carbonation, low to medium body. Decent.
