3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2006 Less carbonated than some other german style hefeís, and also lacking some of the palate. Very light, clean flavor, with a slightly dry finish. Closer to a real hefe than anything Iíve tried from america. Not undrinkable.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pub Glass, Pours a thick meringue like head @3Ē. Its appearance is hazy golden yellow
Wow the esters are amazing banana with subtle clove but my favorite (in a wheat) VANILLA! Taste is smooth with citrus and wheat wang with no noticeable hops. I donít know why it has not scored higher. This would be a good one for a blind tasting!

16 oz bottle. I was hoping this wheat from Baltika would surpise me like the porter did, but alas, no. Not to say it was really bad, I just felt let down. Overall not a bad wheat though. Not top notch, but I can deal considering it had to travel to me from the motherland

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle and labeled best before 11-07-05. Large white soapy head that was mostly diminishing, fair lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, carbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Aroma was malty, sweet, banana, spicy, and lots of clove. Flavor was sweet, malty, banana, clove, spicy, smooth, and thin. Mouthfeel was smooth, thin. Light bodied beer. Just so-so.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Huge head of very fine bubbles. Settles slowly and is quite impressive. Creamy on top with light carbonation. Hazy light gold in color. Light wheat and malt aroma. Some yeast also. Light, weak watery flavor. Very clean and refreshing though. Maybe a hint of citrus, otherwise just weak malts. Finish is clean and smooth. An ok wheat beer but nothing special.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy golden body topped with an average white foamy head. Average yeasty aroma with strange farty hints. Taste is watery with light yeasty and citrusy notes. Ends with a timid hoppy finish. Low quality Weissbier...

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
(on bottle)Has the distinct flavour of a hefe; banana...and then some vinegar with vanilla. The first taste was very hard and sour, but the beer soon came through, in a more plesant, mild way. Nice one here.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden liquid witha healthy white persistent head. Noise is of mildly acrid and bana esters. First sip is a mild hoippy flavor. Flavor is somewhat thin. Texture is a little bit fuller than expected. Second sip more of the same. back of the mout banana flavor is mild but a little too faint for my tastes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
10.28.04 16.9oz bottle Hazey maze pour with a big olíwhite head. Solid citrus candy aroma, some spice, reminds of Hoegaarden (although I havenít had that in a while). Flavor follows with more citrus, but even more banana. A very wheaty hefe, this one. Quite sweet with lots of acid on finish. Not quite refined as some hefes, but worlds better than I expected, and I expected something good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very tangy, wheaty, citric taste. Unfiltered goodness with a very fluffy white head. Some quite peppery bits and clove, with a tad of the bubblegummy esters you see in the best Hefes. Good, very drinkable, and subtantively underrated. Ultimatley a hair acidic, which is itís undoing.
