I have had many wheat beers, and I simply enjoyed this one the most. The taste, sweetness, and color/body are all excellently balanced. Having enjoyed Baltika 6 Porter and the unusually strong Number 9, the wheat beer is a welcome respite from the alcohol/heaviness. (#6 is brilliant, but #9 seems like it’s spiked with grain alcohol) Get this wheat beer! One fellow wrote that it’s the best Baltika he tried-- I concur wholeheartedly. No ’too strong’ banana notes or grassiness, also it’s not limp but rather does fill you up appropriately (unlike cheap, burpy corn beers). I found this beer to be an excellent companion for the crabcake meal I was enjoying at the same time--light but not fluffy. tomer (3845) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 24, 2006
Bottle, Cloudy, couldn’t tell it’s not a german weizen. Nice lasting finish with notes of banana and pineapple.
Very good, probably the best Baltika i have tried. Tranquillity (2563) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 15, 2006
Bottle. Sugary, citrusy aroma. Big head, which stays quite long and never quite disappears. Looks exactly like honey! The taste is a bit stale and lack the typical wheat taste. Nice lemon and grass in the finish. Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 13, 2006
Cloudy, light gold color with a medium-dense white foamy head. Classic wheat ale aroma with notes of lemony tartness. Light body--typical of the style--with a nice grain presence and very low hop bitterness. Good esters from this particular yeast. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 26, 2006
bottled. dishwater appearance - grey and frothy. lemon cheesecake aroma. light-bodied but actually quite good. sweet wheat syrup and vanilla character with light dryness. just could be a little spicier

Light hazy color, large head. Average wheat aroma and taste. Finish is a little dry. Refreshing summer beer. brew4all (103) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Little bit scared of the stuff floating around in this one. Get the sense they used bad water or something. Poured semi cloudy with a paper thin head. The aroma was faint with banana and grass. It tasted wheaty and lemon like with hints of banana and hops. Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2006
Cheaper than water at .59c from Pioneer.
had low ecpectation. which seemed confirm when it poured white fizz like a highy carbonated soda. However, it does settle down to a respectable medium-low head, and modest lacing.
Can taste the banana that everyone mentions. A little watery. Not so bad, and you can’t beat the price. trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Without the label, you would never know this is not from Germany. Pours cloudy gold with a full white head. Nice strong aroma of yeast, bubblegum, and bananas. Great strong taste of the same, but tart with lemon and wheat. It is very carbonated, which is a drawback, but this is stil a really, really good hefe. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - JUL 27, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2006 Picked up a bottle at Whole Foods. Finally, there beer selection has improved( for ATL).. Bright hazy yellow. white fluffy head. heavy hefe aroma. very nice sweet tangy flavor.
