My translation from J to E. This is a beer style from Bavaria Germany. It has a soft clovey aroma and uses a special yeast. It has a fruity aroma characteristic.

biirusaikou (1446) - - JUL 2, 2015
Can from combini. Pretty light body, green banana, mildly creamy, honey bread, touch of lemon, sweet finish. Fairly basic and unimpressive wheat brew, but quite drinkable and widely available at an ok price.

Nocturne (1273) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2015
350ml Can. Pours out slightly cloudy. Short white head. Aroma has a decent bubblegum wheaty hit. Taste is lemon, malty, slight banana notes. Palate slightly oily. Decent wheat beer; no real off notes but not much to set it apart.

Erzengel (5830) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2015
Smooth yeasty beginning. Fresh, clove with not too much yeast. Easy to drink, smooth. Nice dry, very fresh, not too deep. But quite nice. Clove, smooth, no bitterness.

willisread (1093) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 6, 2015
Can from Family Mart in Asagaya. Poured into an English tulip pint. Pours a clear pale golden straw color with a modest white head that dissipates fairly quickly. Very assertive clove aroma with faint aromas of banana and bubblegum present as well. Light body with a watery and grainy texture similar to a pale lager. A kristallweizen for sure, but just too bland.

minihame2 (293) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 18, 2015
Hazy, yellow and brownish colour with a white head. Very mild aroma with some hops and sweet notes. Sweet taste, it has a hint of banana bread to it. Soft mouthfeel, not a whole lot of carbonation. Decent overall.

evergreen0199 (2518) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Can from Yamaya, Hitachinaka, Ibaraki, Japan. A hazy golden yellow coloured pour with a medium white head on top. Yeasty, spice aroma. Tastes similar, spice, yeasty, clove, wheaty. Quite pleasant.

jinroh (803) - ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2015
Pours a bit hazy, looks pale and watery. Some foam that is gone fast. Aroma has nothing special, has some wet cardboard, sour, not really nice. Taste is slightly better, has a bit of spices, body is almost decent actually. However, again a beer that is maybe OK to drink but that lacks character and is not really pleasant.

Milchig trüb, goldgelb, ordentliche weiße Schaumkrone. Aber das ist doch kein Kristallweizen? Geruch leicht hefig, fruchtig, bananig, typisch Weizen. Geschmack hefig, bananig fruchtig, Ester, süß bananiger Abgang, ok!

maekchu (2832) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 29, 2014
Can from local Yamaya store. Light sourish citrus nose, a modicum of very light banana notes, no spice. Hazy medium straw. Light banana, yeast, bit of citrus, creamy light wheaty finish. Medium body. Not too bad. Very drinkable.
