COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The feature of this non-filtered wheat beer is it's bright, smooth, slightly cloudy appearance. Through the use of wheat malt and specially chosen yeasts, this refreshing brew with fruity overtones, boasts a full bodied, yet smooth texture, which glides easily down the throat. With its distinctly individual flavor and smooth elegance, it has been named "shiro," meaning white.

Bottle, cloudy yellow-orange color, with a little head. Aroma is dry grain and crisp hops, some sweetness (a little banana-like) and yeast also. Flavor is the same, both sweet and dry at the same time. Pretty good overall.

jamaty (1346) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Pajiza turbia, apenas espuma. Raro en una weizen. Las dos cosas, el color y la espuma. Aroma a plátano. Cuerpo medio y bajo gas. Suave textura pero el sabor no convence, por empalagoso. Aunque el final es más seco el predominio es claramente dulzón y frutal con el característico plátano. Para mi gusto los toques especiados no logran compensar. Aún así merece ser catada.

Patrickctenchi (4980) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Bottle: Pours hazy, light, slightly greenish-yellow with a small white head. Spicy banana, wheat aroma. Taste is grainy, wheat malt, banana... Not bad, but just a little too grainy.

johndoughty (4458) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Orange and very flat with no life.Slightly spcy but this doesn’t make up for the poor appearance and lack of body. Saying that this a disappointment is understating it. Poor.
