Copper orange with a moderate haze, a few slow rising bubbles, and 5 fingers of orange cream head.

Smells of coriander, canned pears, phenols and a hint of bubble gum.

Tastes of malts, phenols, hints of canned fruit like peaches, a little coriander, and a slight acrid taste.

Medium body, little carbonation.


Found this in Chiang Mai, where I am drinking it August 31st, 2017. Pretty good for a Russian Macro Brewery doing a German style.

Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass at the World of Beer in Savannah. The appearance is a murky yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is grains and some yeast. The taste is similar to the nose, has some fruit notes in the mix.

From Combini. In Bavaria glass. Playing Magic Duels. The typical notes of hefes are here a bit lower than usual but present. Its also Less sweet than usual, which is good in myopinion. It has a Slight metallic touch that far from spoiling it, it even improves it together with the lower sweetness. Its really very drinkable. More foam than appropiate that forces to serve it in 2 steps.

Quite bland, not so sweet tasting as wheat beers generally. Easy drinking beer.
//////////////////////////
Melko laimea, eikä niin makea kuin vehnäoluet yleensä. Helposti juotava olut.

500ml bottle from Mini Mix Russian shop, Barceloneta, Barcelona (€1.25):
A nice but fairly average beer without standing out, it was slightly darker looking than expected but this didn't translate to the aroma or flavour other than the darker malts coming through with the taste. There was a good combination of banana & wheat early on & some background fruits made a brief cameo too but for the most part it was a pretty average wheat beer really.

Almost captures the weizen style in appearance, however head is more foamy then creamy. Aroma has tinge of chemical smell, with hints of banana, however the chemical smell burns the nose. Taste doesn’t fare much better, like one of those fake banana candies. I’ll stick with the German (and Bavarian) weizens from now on....
