UPDATED: APR 25, 2005 Baltika Brewery brews a great Baltic Porter (#6) and brews some not so good beers (#3,#4,#9). All are available at a South Jersey liquor store for $23 USD (case of twenty 500ml). Nice part about the deal is you can mix the case. I mixed two bottles of #8 and was happily surprised with the Hefeweizen. Great pour, fluffy white head and lemon yellow body. Banana aroma evident as soon as I popped the cap. An underlying cirtrus flavor. Baltika #8 is a best buy unfiltered wheat beer for under $1.50 USD a bottle.

ClarkVV (3892) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2005
2004 bottle. Pours a bright yellow-gold color, with plenty of chunky sediment at the bottom, and very hazy throughout. Large, foamy white head is well-retained. Aroma has notes of bubble gum and banana, with a bit of sweet malt and wheat dryness. Flavor incorporates the malt and yeast very well. I have always been a big fan of Baltika beers malt profile, though it may be a bit on the simple/sweet side. Not much indication of noble hops here, but no one says it has to be hoppy. Though Baltika does not have a very well-respected name, I really enjoyed this one and found no glaring faults.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 12, 2005
Poured this beer, pale hazy yellow color. Very high carbonation. Simply popping the cap caused enough carbonation to toss the yeast back into suspension. Big white head from all the carbonation. Big banana aromas in this brew. Flavors were fairly one dimensional as well. Very dry with plenty of banana notes. Not bad, nothing special either.

oh6gdx (20252) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2005
Tapped. Hazy yellow colour, foamy white head, lacing. Sweet wheat ad malt with hints of caramel in aroma. Very sweet fruitish and wheaty flavour. Leaves mouth very sticky. Good wheatbeer.

AlphaOne (142) - AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2005
hazy golden, large head, good retention. Aroma is spicy clovey, lemony and sweet, some pleasant tartness Body is hin, flavour to me seems a little hollow, lemony and slightly rancid.

hefevice (72) - Brisbane beer desert, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2005
From botte. Wow, this surprised me. Was not expecting much, but it turns out to be a very competent hefe. Pours a very pale cloudy yellow, more like a witbier than a hefeweizen. Classic big hefe head and good retention. Classic hefe aroma, abeit a little attenuated. Classic hefe taste, although lacking the depth and complexity of some of the better examples. A little light in the mouth as well, but nothing serious. Very drinkable!

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - APR 5, 2005
Clouded pale yellow (almost wit-ish), thick head formation, strong streams of carbonation and floaties. Sweet sugarry, banana aroma. Banana, ctirussy flavor, slightly grainy, dry finish. Pretty good.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2005
Lemon-yellow body with big chunky satellites and a tight, clean white head. Yeasty nose with notes of pepper, wheat, and light citrusy esters. Tangy flavor of citrus and citrus peels. Lacks the depth of Weihenstephaner which was tasted side by side. Still solid and decent.

dwyerpg (4508) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 4, 2005
Looks and smells like a normal funky wheat hefeweizen. Has hints of Weihenstepahner as well as Schneiderweisse. This is a pretty good beer, especially for a wheat.
