1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I’ll drain pour this shit if it ain’t good before I even start. It’s bland yellow with a huge white head. The aroma is foody and wheaty. The taste is the same. Good try Russia. Stick to doing whatever else that it is you do well... I can’t think of anything.

Not the best weizen available, but when you think of it - it is Made in Russia - you actually enjoy it. Not much above general German weizen, but still different. Serve it in a nice glass, and have a good meal alongside. Enjoyable brew in most of the batches.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(bottle) pours a murky golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of caramel and burnt sugar, with a hint of banana, earth, toasted wheat, some yeast and tobacco. flavour is mostly dried cherries, raisins and banana, with a hint of alcohol and some more burnt sugar. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Blah. Best way to describe this beer is a decent hefe with no carbonation. The banana and clove are big and present. Pour was a nice light gold with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was big banana, yeast and wheaty tang. Problem was there was no carbonation. For me to like a hefe, I need strong biting carbonation to carry the flavors through to the finish. While this beer had a decent taste, the flatness killed it for me.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good foaming and a bit of a straw color. Faint aroma of banana and maybe a hint of clove. Some sweetness and a little bitter, but sweetness pushes out ahead.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pale golden in the glass, very hazy and a large white head. The nose is neutral and slightly banana. The beer starts quite bitter-dry. Not very sweet and not much of typical Weizen-aroma. No banana, nearly no clove. Only the smoothness of the Weizen is present through the yeastiness. The aftertaste is long, bitter-grainy, slightly sour. No Weizen-typical aroma noticeable. Only the slightly sourness in the aftretaste makes it a bit higher drinkable.
--> for a nice wheat beer, too less typical aroma. Even the slightly sweet-smoothness of the wheat is not present all the time. Only from the aftertaste you can guess the used cereal.

Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of fruits and clove. Sweet with typical weizen flavors of banana, bubblegum and yeast. Medium-body, med-high carbonation, well made and easy to drink. Decent Hefeweizen.
