2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from Bevmo. Pours a yellow gold with just the slightest bit of cloudiness. Head is white and sudsy but fades quickly. Aroma is very weak with just a hint of straw. Flavor is one dimensional--light bananas in a light corn syrup. Mouthfeel was a bit thin and watery with an after-film, the carbonation was light. Finish is light and dry with bananas. Overall, I expect much more in the way of bold flavors from a fine hefe, and while this is a good product it is not a great one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from Mini Mix Russian shop, Barceloneta, Barcelona (€1.25):
A nice but fairly average beer without standing out, it was slightly darker looking than expected but this didn’t translate to the aroma or flavour other than the darker malts coming through with the taste. There was a good combination of banana & wheat early on & some background fruits made a brief cameo too but for the most part it was a pretty average wheat beer really.

Mukava lager. Ei nämä venäjän oluet pahoja ole. Oikeastaan tulee mieleen joku weihenstephaner tästä.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, pale yellow body with a small, bubbly, white head. Nice wheaty aroma, plenty of banana, some malts. Slightly bitter taste, quite dry, also has some yeast flavour. Soft mouthfeel with light carbonation, however, the body is light and kinda weak. Not that great for a wheat beer overall in my opinion.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wheat and spicy. Better in aroma than classic 3. No so fruity as I expected. Far away from excellent hefeweizen of Germany

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Perfect Pour. Definitely one of the best Baltika’s I’ve had. Hazy yellow body with big head. Nose is floral and bananas. Quite inviting. Taste is similar of bananas and malts and wheat. Bitter in the finish.
