500ml can. Pours yellow with a small white head. Aroma is pineapple and passion fruit sweets. Taste is pineapple and passion fruit juice, slightly sour, with an energy drink feel. The label lists it as a "beer drink" (a term made up by the Russian government, Hoegaarden is also classed as a "beer drink") and apparently it contains hops. But it tastes more like a Russian energy drink plus alcohol. That said, I enjoyed it.

Сильног& сладко-к вкус ананаса и грепфру& В большей степени лимонад с алкогол& чем пиво.

Bottle. Intense pineapple aroma comes right out of the bottle. Clear golden colour. Not at all skunky, probably does not contain hops. Taste is all about flavourings. Pineapple and grapefruit, fruity mix with refreshing sourness. Resemblance to beer is lost but I dont mind.

Piana: biała, grubo pęcherzykowa, szybko zanikająca. Kolor: słomkowe, klarowne. Aromat: ananas, lekko grejpfrut,. Smak: ananas, początek słodki, później kwaśny, kwasek cytrynowy, mocno alkoholowy.

Bardzo slabienkie i cienkie piwo. Brzydka etykieta przezroczysta etykieta. Odkrecany kapsel. Wszystko nie tradycyjne dla mnie. Zapach dosc wyrazny grejfrutow i zwlaszcza ananasa. Troche sie jakby zaklucaly. Babelki szemza jak w slodkiej orenzadzie. Wlasnie za slodkie bylo ten napoj piwo podobny. Landrynkowy strasznie i guma balonowa dominowala. Kolor jasno zlocisty z minimalna nietrwala piana. Piwo za mocne jakby dolano soczku do strong lagera. Troche w koncowce alkoholowe wlasnie. To piwo nawet nie nadaje sie na upalne dni. Wiec nie polecam
