Baltika Munchen Weizen

This is a 5.0% ABV German-style weizen, or wheat, beer from the Baltika Breweries of Saint Petersburg, Russia (home of the great Russian writer Dostoyevsky).

The beer pours a cloudy dark orange golden in color. There is a tall, ragged, foamy head of off-white. The aroma is yeast esters, bananas and cloves, toasted wheat. It looks and smells the part. The taste follows the aromas, loads of banana and spice, sitting on toasted wheat, banana bread, with a tart finish. It is well carbonated and drinks refreshing. This is better than I expected for a German-style weizen made by Baltika.
