The President of Baltika Brewery of St Petersburg, Russia, Mr T.K. Bolloev, declares on the label of this beer that this is an "unfiltred wheat ale" that "countains special yeast which gives it cloudness and creates a reach taste". His English is better than my Russian, but he should sack his translator. Or try Spellcheck. Fortunately his brewers know what they’re doing. This is a fine hefe and the easily the best of the three Baltika brews that have crossed this gullet. In the glass, it was a lovely-looking cloudy gold construction with a fine onion-domed head like the Kremlin itself. Okay, I made that up - no onion dome, but wouldn’t that be cool? It has the classic hefe aroma of bananas and cloves - very much to style. There’s loads of yeast and wheat - if you close your eyes you could be standing in the vast wheatfields of the Steppes, a sickle in your hand and hope in your heart as you gaze towards a bright new communist future and dream of picking up Olga in your new Lada. Come to think of it, the future would probably be behind you. But you get the idea. This beer holds up well in the mouth, with some bready malts to complement the bananas and a sprinkle of spice in the swallow. It’s creamy-smooth and full-flavoured - or indeed "reach" in taste. This has restored my taste for hefes. Thank you comrades. (500ml bottle from some dodgy Noosa bottlo, bb 20/7/06)

Hazy orange body under a huge white and lasting head. Delicious fruity aroma. Taste of banana. Watery mouthfeel and slightly too sweet. This is not the first time a wheatbeer proves very suitably to chicken food.

21 Mar 2006 - Light bubblegum sweet aroma. Cloudy yellow colour, good head and sheet lacing. Sweet wheat and light hop flavour. Medium mouthfeel with a banana aftertaste.

Probably not the best time to be trying this, with the weather turning cold and winter just around the corner, but I couldn’t be buggered waiting for summer to try this one. Looked good, with a big fluffy white head and a typical cloudy golden yellow body. Strong on the banana, light on the cloves, but typical hefeweizen aroma. A bit dusty as well, which detracts somewhat. Nice, fairly well balanced flavour that seems to need a bit more warming than typical wheat beers to achieve maximum satisfiability (cool word - just made it up). First half of the bottle was a bit of a struggle, but the second half slid down well indeed. I think I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for hefeweizens...

Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of bread/spice/ and some fruit. Had a taste of yeasty bread with some spice.

alafito (334) - tijuana, MEXICO - APR 1, 2006
Dirty looking light yellow, with a nice head of white foam... really nice carbonation in this one, probably the best thing about the beer, bubbles poping in your tounge and palate thruout the whole experience. The nose is wheat bread with a funky red apple tasting yeast and a tad of orange. It finishes lightly bitter and crisp. Pretty well made and good for regular drinking.

Spicy malt hop aroma. Murky amber colour with thick white foamy head that lingers. Bitter malt hop flavour. Fizzy palate.

SimonLarsen (210) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 25, 2006
Nice wheat beer, has the slightly rough palate the sweet bubblegum aroma and the normal light flavours. Does have a slightly weird flavour kicking in late, almost as if it has been hidden and it is only a few minutes later that you think there’s something weird there.

A good head with aromas of mandarin. Wheat and citrus with some astringency at the back. Well made.

A full wheat taste. A bit too sweet, perhps, but better than most wheat beers.
