About what I might expcet form Russian wheat beer. A little bit of citrus indicates to me that they must have used a decent yeast.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours light golden and cloudy with a mostly receding white wispy head. Aroma is spicy clove with some bubble gum. This is very similar to the aroma of Paulaner Hefeweizen, quite likely the same yeast. Smells and tastes authentic, but doesn’t have a pronounced wheat character. Still, a laudable imitation. Medium bodied and highly carbonated. More residual sugar than a typical Bavarian weizens, so it seems a bit heavier.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Thick creamy mostly lasting off white head. Peaches, raspberry and cream, banana, clove, lactic nose. Sweet, light malts, cereal, citric, light to medium body. Finishing crisp and clean. Nice balance and finesse. Very drinkable and quite surprising for a Russion Hefe.

Bottle in Finland.Light cloudy gold with a strong white head. Fizzy carbonation with small bubbles. sweet aroma rather than the stale one I expected. Sweet taste as well as being quite malty, with only a light bitterness. Finally a good beer from Russia. Must be the proximity.

Clearly color lightly hazy, medium fizz. Bulky and fine foam, creamy and of good persistence. Crisp and pleasant scent, notes of corn, lemon and orange’s peel. Sweetens taste, lively and little bitter. Light mildew and grapes notes. Medium and fresh end.
