Poured from a brown 16.9 oz. bottle. Has a yellowish white color with a 1 inch head. Smell is fruity, sweet. Taste is of citrus, some spices, just a bit of sweetness, refreshing and easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall this is a solid beer.

Pours a saturated orange into a tapered mug, with a finger or two of white foam on top. Swirling and adding the yeast forms a cone-shaped column hovering in the glass like a tornado, kinda cool.

Initial aroma of orange and bubblegum, later minerally wheat and applesauce in the glass.

Medium bodied and wheaty, some clove and bubblegum traces that seem a little more hefeweizen than witbier. Some light orange surfaces in the middle and trace coriander seems present as well. Clean and not too sweet, its actually somewhat dry in the finish. This is actually pretty good, and more flavorful than Obolon Bile, another Ukrainian Witbier.

Lvivske Bilyi Liv means Lvivske White Lion. Ingredients disappoint: natural flavor enhancers with wheat malts extract, barley, pectin, carbon dioxide. What the hell they do? Pours opaque cloudy yellow beer with good white head. Aroma of wheat malts, coriander and yeasts. I’m not able to evaluate smell correctly when they use flavor enhancers. Anyway, it is comparatively weak. The taste is plain and simple – wheat malts, spiced with flavor enhancers. Moderate carbonation, unpleasant palate. The beer is obviously poor and wasn’t made with love.

16.9 oz bottle was poured into a large tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin ring. It is a hazy pale yellow with some clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Wheaty bready and sweet noted, some banana, some clove, and faint hints of noble hops.

Taste: Light wheat, banana, and clove with mild noble hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, light bodied, low to medium carbonation, chewy, and refreshing.

Overall: Pretty tasty light hefe. Bargain price and I'll grab another at Apex in Lexington next time through. These would be awesome for the summer time.
