Тройной Пшеничный Эль сварен с добавлением ягод можжевельника, семян кориандра и цедры апельсина, что придает пиву оригинальный, освежающий вкус и крайне аппетитный аромат. По характеру это пиво напоминает классические бельгийские сорта, но в то же время обладает яркой индивидуальностью. В течение года оно дозревало в пивоваренных танках, а теперь, после розлива, благодаря специальным бельгийским дрожжам дображивает в бутылке.

Kauge (842) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 18, 2015
75 cl bottle from Petseri / Pechory, thanks a lot M! BB was due a month ago. Hazy orange colour, head small. Weak sour apples and citric aroma, wheaty, doughy. Sweetish taste with apple juice-like sour notes, citric acidity, and very faint spiciness. Pleasant and unexpectedly soft mouthfeel, almost velvety smooth, very thin and restrained carbonation. I really did not know what to expect - it is strange, but I’m pleasantly surprised.

Some shoppe in Russia: pours slightly hazy orange with little head. Aroma is juniper, lime, spice. Taste is slightly tart. Sweet and very mellow. Very little bit of hops. I do not think that this is a tripel, but it is really not bad. Interesting enough to drank.

cloudy amber, small white head. aroma sweet sugar, coriander, spicey, citrusy but sour background. taste starts sweet sugar/caramel biscuit through coriander and citrus but turns quite sour very quickly and the finish is a mix of sweet’n’sour spices. med+ body. Guess this one also depends on the brew as do other brands from Vasileostrovskaya. Without the unpleasant sourness it would be a good beer.

Rammer (369) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JAN 7, 2015
Very-Belgian, coriander, orange peel, wheat. Much depends on the brew. Sometimes a great ale, and is too sour

dnicolaescu (1376) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - JUN 23, 2014
BOTTLE 75CL Look: cloudy amber, light beige frothy head with poor retention. Aroma: sweet fruity (pear, apricot) lollipop sweetness with some acidity, orange. Taste: prickly, sweet and acid fruitiness, light caramel sweetness in the background, light green fruit astringency in the finish.

With all the flaws, not a bad beer. Overall, feels like a witbier on steroids.

sharkydodson (693) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JUN 20, 2014
fruity and malty aroma with shades of spices... rather rough taste of wheat malt with notes of juniper, coriander and citrus... dry sweet aftertaste...

A - Pours amber beer with a huge foamy head. Some cloudiness. Very nice to see! S - Smell has fruity esters, apple, notes of citrus and oranges. A very inviting smell that tells "drink me" T - Taste is just excellent! The wheat flavour is pretty well hidden. The first notes are of apples, then citrus and oranges come into action. Sweet after mouth, but not overpowering. M - Silky in the mouth, with a lively carbonation O - Overall an excellent beer that is miles away from the Red Ale that I tried yesterday (by this same brewery). Makes me wonder if I drank a bad bottle because the quality difference is just abysmal. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
