Chernigivske Siverske
From Billa supermarket in Kiev. Pours clear golden, topped with fairly small and non-lasting white head. A bit grassy aroma with mild biscuits. Mildly sweet with some very gentle bitterness in finish. Light and not really that bad. Drinkable.

Chernigivske Bila Nich
From a Billa supermarket in Kiev. Pours dark brown, topped with fairly small and non-lasting beige head. A bit smelly roasty aroma, mild. A bit spicy feel in aroma later on. Taste gently sweet with some soury presence. A bit spuces in the finish. Not bad actually.

Chernigivske Bile Nefiltrovane
500 ml bottle. Pours hazy apricot orange colour. Initially tall frothy head fades fast with no any traces of lacing. Aroma is very sweet & spicy; coriander, zest, fruit esters, yeast, apple sourness. Taste: dried apricots, coriander, wheat, spices, canned apples. Long dry fizzy spicy finish. Low carbonation. Ok witbier.

Chernigivske Bile Nefiltrovane
0.5 can. Very hazy, dark gold color and a medium, white head. Aroma of pale malts, metal, grains, corn, some wheat, and a touch of banana. Taste is very hackneyed: grains, banana, delicate hints of alcohol, and not much else. A medium body, a slick and smooth texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is fruitier, a tad citric even. Overall a standard pale lager, rather palatable.

Chernigivske Siverske
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear dark golden, off-white head. Dry lager aroma, a bit cidery and just a shade of fruity malts. The taste metallic upfront, dry alcoholic and cidery, light fruity malts. All signs of a strong lager brewed with sugar. Drinkable, but certainly ugly.

Chernigivske Siverske
500 ml bottle. Aroma unspoken, perfume, ethereal, with weak candy-fruit notes. The taste is sour and slurred monotone, in principle, everything tastes incredibly empty, only a little fruit candy and a small perfume bitterness. Aftertaste fails, disappears almost instantly, leaving the impression of watery, remains only a nasty already tiresome perfume.

Chernigivske Bile Nefiltrovane
Bottle 0,5l.Weak hazy yellow colour. Frothing initially large head that subsides quickly. Decent wheat aroma with citrus and coriander. Flavour has not much going for it, not offensive but not great either. Some citrus and coriander, but not much. Fairly bland. Mouthfeel remains fizzy throughout. Not much aftertaste either.

Bottle 0,5l. Dark brown hazy body, small tan head. Aroma of low intensity: grains, coriander, dark malts, plums, honey. Taste is sourish-sweet. Something between Baltic porter and dunkelweizen. Plums, cocoa, spices, coriander, wheat, figs. Light to medium body, high carbonation.
May it be… Funny, my first dunkelwitbier is from Ukrajina :-)

Chernigivske Svitle
Beer - straw-colored foam - medium-grained, friable, unstable. Fragrance - pure grain, slightly sweet. Carbonation, as written on the website of the manufacturer, very high. Perhaps even too much, because it obviously does not give a beer to "open" your taste. The body is not tight, but the taste than "flat" slurred cereal component and water notes of nothing more and no. As something completely "empty" and tasteless beer.

Chernigivske Bila Nich
The aroma of apples, damp grass, light caramel, coriander berries, perfume and gnilovatye notes, a pronounced acidity. It is a peculiar smell, which somehow repels light manure foulbrood and acidity. The body is quite dense on the palate is dominated by rotten-herbaceous tones, caramel, spice-accented perfume component, yeast tones and pronounced acidity. Like the smell, the taste is also quite unusual, but somewhat confused by its extraordinary components.

Clear pale to medium gold, good frothy white head, recedes quickly, light lacing; aroma sweet malts, grain, corn, bit grassy; taste medium sweet, slightly bitter, grainy; medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation, very light sweetbitter and short aftertaste, bit metallic; something to forget (despite the good intentions with the eko approach).

Bottle shared at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma of graininess, a bit of corn. Sweetish grainy flavor with some corn and a mildly bitterish finish with a metallic note. Light-bodied. Drinkable, but the regular Svitle is better.

Kolor zloty, dosc mocno zmetnione, brak piany. W aromacie niewiele, lekkie przyprawy. W odczuciu polpelne, wysoko wysycone. W smaku ponownie niewiele, troche zboz, przypraw, a po kilku lykach nawet troche slodkiej pomaranczy.

Chernigivske Bila Nich
The aroma is malts, a little biscuity, a little bit fruity, a little bit of honey; the advertised coriander is barely there. Pours rather dark brown, opaque, with a large head that doesn?t last for a second. The taste is sweet, and that?s pretty much that. Body on the light side; carbonation fizzy, but very short-lived; finish faintly dry if any. Certainly not one to celebrate with, but quite drinkable actually, and pleasant enough for one?s everyday needs.

Staropramen Wheat Beer
Thanks to Borsodi Brewery (InBew) have appeared in the Hungarian stores recently (named by "Unfiltered"). at first sight its promissing but after tasted its quite thin and aqueos. The foam is beautiful and durable. I don’t think so give it any advance apple and coriander flavor, I realy do not understand this rather unnecessary. But overall little bit better then an average product of manufacturing (In Hun). Fortunatelly so far is manufactured in Prague.

Chernigivske Maksimum
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear golden, below average white head. The aroma starts distinctly cidery, but clears up after a while leaving apple juice and some fusels. Tastes hot, though not straight up ethanol. Big sweetness,sweet apple juice with a malic acidity. A hint of vinegar and salt. It is certainly crappy, but definitely not plain „rocket fuel”, as one would expect from a 10% abv strong lager brewed with sugar.

Chernigivske Mitsne
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear golden-amber, white frothy head. A weak, but distinctly catty aroma and a touch of alcohol. The taste less sweet than your average strong lager, with a strong and harsh green vegetable hop finish. Less alcoholic than others. Sucks, anyway.

Chernigivske Bile Nefiltrovane
Pours hazy golden, medium, falling down head. Very ugly particles of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. Aroma of coriander, yeast and lemon but with unpleasant basement notes. Taste is yeasty, coriander with dirty rag, basement notes again. Too low carbonation. Do not like it.

Staropramen Wheat Beer
BOTTLE 50 CL. It does indeed have some wit-like aromas: fruit (apple?), orange peel and even coriander, but also some sulfur and a touch of alcohol. The taste is even worse: dry, harsh fenolic bitterness, some light but harsh acidity and an astringent and dry-alcoholic finish — like a poor homemade white wine fermented with too much table sugar. On top of all, everything is kinda dirty. Fail.

This beer smells like good witbier, taste is sweety from the start with sourness in the aftertaste. Drinkable but sometimes it seems to be artificial and plastic

Chernigivske Bezalkogolnoe (Non-Alcoholic)
BOTTLE 50 CL. Fresh. Cooked fruit aroma, apple pie and some stale beer or wine. Very watery, light stale notes in the taste too. Lightly salty with hints of baking soda and a touch of bitterness in the finish. Very neutral, and lacking those typical non-alcoholic flavours of unfermented wort and tomato juice. Nevertheless, it sucks.

Chernigivske Svitle Eko
This is a little stronger variation of the "Svitle". Similar malty aroma of grains (especially corn). Light body. Sweet malty flavour with minimal sourness. Hardly any hops. The finish is absent. Some years ago I would probably like it. It’s not the case now.

Chernigivske Svitle
CAN 50 CL. Nice malty aroma, clean, a hint of dusty grains. The flavour is less interesting: light sweetness, some fruitiness or honey malts, husk, mineral water, a touch of hops (or maybe not).

0,5 l bottle, bought at Grüne Woche 2015, Berlin. Pours out in a dark brown, think it´s unclear, with a tanned short living head. Grassy herbal on the nose. Taste is more herbal, coriander, sweet, low malt in the second row. Nearly no bitterness. Sticky to the end.

0,5 l bottle, bought at Grüne Woche 2015, Berlin. Murky pale yellow in the glass, big white but short living head. Yeast, wheat and coriander on the nose, like a belgian wit.Taste is more citrus fruity, little bit chemical, then the coriander starts for a short time. Some mazipane hints. Flat dry low bitter ending with citrus background. Not really complex but better than expected.

Warka do 04.02.2015. Piana obfita, bezowa, powoli opada do grubej obraczki. Kolor czarny, nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie na pierwszym planie igristoje, dalej maliny, palonosc, ciasteczkowa i zbozowa slodowosc, lekki karton. W odczuciu polpelne, wysoko wysycone, ale gladkie. W smaku na pierwszym planie igristoje i maliny, dalej lekka kolendra, a w tle przyjemna slodowosc, herbatnikowa, zbozowa, palona, przypalony karmel, lekka kwasnosc. Goryczki w zasadzie nie ma. Zgodnie z legenda, smakuje ruskaczem i o dziwo jest to bardzo smaczne.
