estpiwo (1319) - ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2008
Bottle. Dark golden color. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavor is little bit sweet at the beginning, but immediately I can feel hops. Originalais is more hoppy than other Tervete brews. Good.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 2, 2008
500ml bottle.
Fruity simple aroma, some hops too. Big hoppy bite, very bitter, and a little anaesthetic. Full body, tangy and chewy. Good lager.

my opportunity to sample this beer is a monument of good intentions over beer-nerd sophistication: this came to me as part of the "great latvian beer airlift of 2007" (my partner went on vacation there-- don’t ask me why. sniff).

i know as much about latvia as i do about curing constipation in geriatric gerbils-- or the dark side of saturn’s moons. not that any such knowledge is greatly requisite in simply rating a beer; i just don’t want to endorse a beer if they use slave labor or anything unsavory like that over there; i mean, for all i know, they get their brewing water from the same treatment plant that services the nuclear reactor.

barring those considerations, i found a beer that immediately wanted to learn my language and adapt to it’s host country. "whissssst" it sang out when i popped the top, and like any american thoroughbred, it galloped into the arena with it’s frothy white mane tossing, and with the shade of yellow only associated with the better-made tin grommets of the world.

fairly clean grains highlight the aroma, especially grains that came to us in plastic bins. it has a distinct "circus-peanut" kind-of orange-scented cotton candy aroma-- or imagine if jello made a lemon-hop flavored gelatin dessert. not at all unpleasant, and probably quite an allure to those factory workers who might in fact BE slaves. how should i know? anyway, seriously, i have no complaints: this is a decent enough straight-forward quencher, tending toward a medium body, grainy, dry, well-carbonated, and with enough fresh-tasting hops to rank it respectably among the ubiquitous euro-pilseners.

but... if i can only get her to go to belgium NEXT year!!

zziemelis (12) - Rīga, LATVIA - FEB 6, 2006
More bitter than the red-labeled «Tērvetes» (this one is slightly more expensive and carries black-coloured label, just like the famous scotch whisky). Color is golden, clear. Not bad.

Bottled gold with small head. Sweet but mild taste of malt. The colder the better.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 17, 2005
Bottled. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Grassy nose with hints of alcohol. Flavour is sweet malts and some hops. Aftertaste (about 5 seconds after swallowing) becomes very sweet, artificial and unpleasant. Except for the aftertaste, this beer is really good for a pale lager in my opinion.Also, once it gets too warm it gets unpleasant. about +7-8C is good.

Bottled
Golden color, decent white head. Skunky, grassy hoppy nose. Medium-bodied, a bit sweet, harsh, oily finish.
