550 ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow a large white slowly fading head. Aroma and Taste of wheat, some grassy notes, lightly fruity and slightly barn yard. Palate is a medium body, with moderate carbonation. Finishes with a taste of wheat, grassy notes, light fruity. Basically a fairly boring brew, very non descript. ok for a hot summer day.

From the 25 fl. oz. bottle marked 07.0812-07:24/07.0813-5W. Sampled on March 31, 2013.
The color is a slightly cloudy yellow with a decent white head that eventually settles down.
The aroma is quite distinct with wheat along with an apple kind of ester. Even someone who is not a regular craft beer drinker would pick this up.
The body is light to about medium with a creamy texture.
Like the aroma the taste has a good dose of wheat malts and apple along with a thin twist of lemon to give it a summery sensation. The hops do not linger much but they offset the other qualities. Not a high quality wheat beer but far ahead of what Baltika normally has to offer.

Appearance: Slightly hazy medium golden in color, with a large, and dense white head, which retains quite well. The lacing is thick and coats the glass walls.
Aroma: Lots of wheat bread, cloves, and bananas. In my opinion, it could easily be mistaken for a German-brewed Hefeweizen.
Taste:Opens with slightly sweet, white bread flavors, soon followed by classic ripe bananas and cloves. These flavors carry ell throughout the taste, with the bread notes more prominent towards the end of the taste. Finishes with a mild, lingering sweetness, and banana esters.
Mouth feel: A touch thin, with slightly spritzy carbonation, a bit of fullness would be most welcome.
Drinkability/notes: Quite nice, and a bargain at $2.19 for a half-liter bottle.
Presentation: Packaged in a 16.9 ounce brown glas bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Bottled 2/29/12. Best before 2/28/12.
Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a super foamy off-white head that settles to a thick cap on top of the beer. Small patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, wheat, spices, yeast, and banana. Taste is much the same with a slight tartness in the flavor. There is a mild spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer and definitely the best of the Baltika "#" beers I have had so far.
