3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy, bubbly golden with a medium thick white head. Aroma is nice. Spices, sweet malts, some banana, but not too candyish like many Japanese wits, slight smoke notes. Smooth body. Flavor is nice, though a little muted. Sweet banana, malts, some spice, some wheat, and a touch of smoke. A nice brew, wish it was a bit stronger in flavor. I’d buy this again, though.
