Sampling right now on 8/9/14.Comes in a 500ml (16.9) bottle for $2.99 (Spirit World in Omaha), though the label is newer. I have had a few different brews of theirs before. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in a 1 liter handled glass stein.

Pours a hazy golden yellow in color with a good 1-finger foamy white head that settles to about 3mm on top. A decent amount of sediment is found at the bottom of the bottle. Spotty lacing is seen when sipped. The aroma is of wheat, bananas, cloves and yeast. Pretty much the same for the taste that follows the nose. Perfect carbonation. No bitter or harsh aftertaste at all. Overall, not a bad 'hefe' and you can't beet the price for this Russian beer.
