IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - MAR 3, 2005
3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks nearly identical to the Apple Lager I just has. Slightly hazy golden but a bit orangey with a white head. Banana and cloves as should be, no tangy off scents as a few other Japanese Weizens have had. Bingo, the chaps at Baeren score another bullseye! A tasty Weizen true to style, very good. Strong banana and mild spice, some vanilla in the follow. After trying their 3 newest brews (Chocolate Stout, Apple Lager and now this), a road trip to Morioka is on for this weekend!
