3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head: off-white, big, creamy, avg. retention. Colour: dirty golden, cloudy.
Aroma: banana, clove, yeast. Taste: wheat sourness, not much fruitiness or spiciness.
Quite decent, but somewhat watery and lacking the clovy spiciness, compared to most weizens.

Looks like a German Weizen but does not taste like one. Nice foam but a taste that simply doesn’t really deliver. Simple taste that dies away quickly. There are a lot of better Heifeweizens then this one.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bem aromática, com toques de banana, cravo e cítricos. Retrogosto cítrico e adocicado, mas de curta duração. Melhor no aroma que no paladar.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Popular Austrian Hefeweizen, tasted many years ago, ABV was 5.4% then; rating from old notes. Straw blonde, cloudy beer under a creamy, yellowish white head, less ’lush’ than I am used to from its Bavarian brethren, but this may have to do with the bottle being a few years old already at the time. Aroma of bready malts, sourish wheat, cloves, baker’s yeast and a hint of banana; bready, yeasty taste, dryish with a sourish wheat effect, faint spiciness and a faint hint of herbal hops in the background, refreshing. Acceptable but I had many better (usually Bavarian) examples of the style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg, made by Heineken Russia, hazy pale yellow colour, small frothy white head, fair lacing. Moderately malty aroma of grain and bisquit with moderate banana esthers with some cloves and a hint of generic hops. Taste is moderately sweet at first, turning into a bittersweet finish wiht a hint of sourness. Medium body, dry mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Tolerable but unsurprising weizen, probably better price-quality ratio in Russia than with the bulk German wheat beers they sell at four times the price.

Bottle. Russian licensed variant of german weissbier. Hazy golden color with nice head. Aroma of banana and yeast. Taste is sweet, but with notes of somewhat like artificial bitterness. Finish is short. Rather watery texture. Not the best weizen.

Jasno złote, mętne piwo o grubej, puszystej i bardzo trwałej pianie. W smaku bardzo łagodne, wyważone, cytrusowe - przypomina trochę witbiera.
