Review: Baltika 8 Pshenichnoe (Wheat)

A German Hefeweizen brewed by
Baltika Brewery (Baltic Beverages Holdings)

St. Petersburg, Russia

ABV: 5%

Glassware: Tulip

With all the Russia talk lately I felt like cracking open one of their beers, so I did. It was a cloudy yellow with a nice looking, very fluffy head. It smells floral and citrus filled, a decent aroma. It had a nice full-bodied hefeweizen taste. There were some cloves and a lot of citrus. Nothing super special here but certainly worth having again, especially at the price: 50cl for $1.50.

Beer Advocate food pairings: Cuisine (German) Cheese (tangy; Brick, Edam, Feta) General (Salad) Meat (Poultry, Fish, Shellfish)
