3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Beer Keyaki Spring 2014. A cloudy mildly pink pour with a thick filmy head. A decent medium bodied beer with a zesty mouthfeel. The taste is yeasty, spicy and ok. Comparable to the zakkoku weizenbock maybe a smidge better.

Tap at Watering Hole. Cloudy orange colour, white head. Aroma is full on brown bread malt, bit of banana, bit of spice. Slight veggie frankfurter smell strangely. Taste is sweet, banana, spice, creamy malt. Bit of ice cream too. More fruit too. Pretty nice.
