Easily pours a 2.5 finger head, off-white in color, with plenty of fluff to it and slight lacing. Nice murky amber color with a mild wheat/yeast nose. Fruity, citrusy and slightly peppery on first taste with a light, silky body. Quite refreshing, actually. Not a hugely complex wheat beer, but would certainly be appreciated on a hot summer’s day. Strangely, I couldn’t detect any of the sweetness that the reviewers mentioned. Perhaps for me this manifested itself in the overall fruitiness of the drink.

Found this in a very fancy grocery store in one of the swankest parts of town (yes, Moscow can be swank). Standard German brown half liter bottle with a blue and silver label featuring a guy in a pirate hat holding a mug of beer. Purity law, of course, and a lot of emphasis on pure springs. Best before 9/7/05, I opened it on 12/12/04.

Pours a very cloudy yellow gold under a firm two finger snow white head that settles very slowly but leaves next to no lace at all. The nose is very, very yeasty, with some wheat but not much spice or citrus. Interesting. The mouth is very prickly and slightly sticky/heavy. The taste leaves a smooth and mild impression, very much dominated by the yeast. There's really no noticeable spice or fruit here, and no hops either. This is a good case study in what yeast tastes like, but not exactly a balanced or complex product.

This brew pours with massive amounts of head with a sligthly vigorous pour. The body is quite hazy and is golden orange in color.

Fragrances I detect are mostly banana with a slight bubble gum aroma.

This tastes very sweet. The flavor is dominated by banana for sure.

This is a pretty good weizen, but a little too sweet and not totally well balanced

Light banana, cloves, whole wheat bread and yeast on the nose. Typical weizen flavor profile is at play here, with sweet banana being the lead suspect.

Medium to full-bodied, nice tongue-tickling medium carbonation, with a nice creamy mouthfeel.

Opalescent orange-yellow apperance, good carbonation. Bautiful white foam, creamy, well done.
In the smell cloves, light banana, yeast, wheat and bread. A bit sweet, bu not too much.
Correct weizen, even in the taste, with the classic notes of cloves, banana and yeast.
A bit of sweetness again the aftertaste, banana, light cloves.
Honest, classic, in the style.
