Viru's octahedral bottle - inspired by the medieval turrets of Estonia - should help it leap off the shelves. Unlike many other obscure beers from far flung places, the quality of Viru isn't limited to its flashy bottle. Somehow it manages to offer a good balance of tastes, combining a full-flavoured beer in a light and refreshing style. Both samples sent in to our offices got top marks from testers in the brand news team but we'll happily sample the beers of any other nation - just to be fair.
