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.
