A great wheat beer. I love the clove and Bananna. I did not know there were Russian beers until last weekend when I went to a Russian brew tasting. All of the Baltika were really good. A little richer then some other wheats but none the worse for it.

Bottle, 4 years ago. Honey-coloured, suits the style. High and lasting head. Strong aroma, with a lot of typical Weizen esters, especially banana. Very full. A lot of wheaty and ester notes, very low bitterness. A great Weizen!

I have had many wheat beers, and I simply enjoyed this one the most. The taste, sweetness, and color/body are all excellently balanced. Having enjoyed Baltika 6 Porter and the unusually strong Number 9, the wheat beer is a welcome respite from the alcohol/heaviness. (#6 is brilliant, but #9 seems like it’s spiked with grain alcohol) Get this wheat beer! One fellow wrote that it’s the best Baltika he tried-- I concur wholeheartedly. No ’too strong’ banana notes or grassiness, also it’s not limp but rather does fill you up appropriately (unlike cheap, burpy corn beers). I found this beer to be an excellent companion for the crabcake meal I was enjoying at the same time--light but not fluffy.

This is an amazing beer. Everything is great about it. No bad aftertaste. This would be a beer I would drink daily if given up the opportunity. Try this one!

Pub Glass, Pours a thick meringue like head @3”. 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 don’t know why it has not scored higher. This would be a good one for a blind tasting!

Appearance: thick white head, darker golden color, very hazy, retains head well, not much lacing though Aroma: banana, creamy, frothy, smells good, very aromatic, caramel, lemon Taste: caramel, malt, hint of lemon Palate: moderate c02, feels heavy on the tongue, leaves a caramel aftertaste Overall: very good beer, my first Russian beer and it's different than I was expecting in a good way, refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Aroma is a mix of bannana, citrus and a sharper spicy note that is very foreign to my nose. It’s enticing though. Body is a cloudy pale yellow with a beautiful, lasting and creamy two finger thick white head. Very nilla wafer creamy cake tasting in the fore. Kind of a vanilla/bannana mix. Yeasty and while creamy sweet with that vanilla/’nanna mix it is far from cloying. This is a pretty damn unique beer that plays with the style and still tastes good doing it.
