3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Harajuku taproom. Pale blond cloudy, big white bubbly head. Aroma is wheat, not much else. Taste is creamy, wheat and flour, bit of banana, some sweetness. Touch of pepper/spice maybe. Biscuity malty finish. Quite satisfying and not bad at all.

500 yen at Bungalow’s 1st Anniversary Baird tap takeover. 4.3% an opaque honey gold with a fluffy white head. A mild spicy clove aroma leads to a decent wheat beer taste with a strong malt foundation with spice & wheat notes overlying it. Pretty good but again it is undercarbed, possibly Bungalow has their tap system set too low & it isn’t carbonating the kegs right?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
Crunchy wheat and spicy noble hoppiness coalesce within this Wheat Ale’s fluffy mouthfeel sculpting a compelling quencher.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam sits atop the cloudy honey gold.
-Mouthfeel is soft and ample. Increases drinkability.
-Delicate and very well crafted, this hits the spot as a first pint.
-Cereals are very well defined.
-Hops also offer light citrus edges.
On tap at Harajuku Taproom.

Tap@SomePubTokyo. Pretty standard Belgian Witbier except for the bitterness. Too much of that, what makes it unbalanced.

Good condition when I drunk it on tap. Soft wheat, honey and light grass clippings. Very smooth and quite full for such an ABV. Not a great deal going on, but a quintessential thirst quencher.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Cloudy, yellow colour. Aroma is great with grass and vegetables. Taste is a bit disappointing, watery and very little flavour. I did not enjoy this beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (gift from Neko-chan). Not much aroma, some hopping in the background. Kinda greenish-yellow color. Flavor is very mild (no really much in the way of wheat), a bit of tang from the hops. Mild. Thin body. Maybe it would be a good beer for the middle of the hot summer. But, overall, this is the least impressive Baird brew I’ve had to date.

360ml bottle. Hazy amber colour that settles and clears. Big pillow of clean white foam. The aroma is fairly light as is the flavour. Clean and crisp in the mouth with a slightly metallic aftertaste.
