COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Note: This is different from the Mori no Weizen Oktoberfest that was made through 2011. That beer was smoked, this is not. This is an amber-colored hefeweizen.

Bottle from Yamaoka. Very dark for the style. Big banana aroma with wheat, some spice. Very smooth flavour, not too sweet.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2361) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle from Asahita served in a weizen glass. Stylistically I think it is similar to the copper weizen but possibly a darker copper color with a more intense beige head. The aroma is intense banana, cloves an lots of buttery diacetyl. The taste is very much the same way more buttery flavor than I have ever gotten from Fujizakura & the only beer I have ever had from them that has a production issue... Disappointing...

Keyaki. Amber brown colour, small white head. Aroma is banana, grain. Taste is good, banana, ice cream, lots of malt too, touch of spice. Good stuff. Normal one is nice, but this has just something extra.

Travlr (13407) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 4, 2013
Draft. Jazy golden amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of banana and summer fruit. Taste is mildly sour fruit. Decent.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Banana esters envelop perfum-y conifers while peaches and doughy yeast render complexity.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy head of foam tops the cloudy amber.
-Even though the color is quite dark for a Weizen, this doesn’t taste like a Dunkel Weizen at all.
-Although this is simple, it is very effective AND authentic. A twist on the Fujizakura Weizen cannot be poor, that’s for sure.
-The aroma is particularly alluring.
-After a while, minty toothpaste notes are found.

On tap at Watering Hole.

These guys don’t make bad beer - and usually it’s very, very good, as is the case here. A souped up weizen with a slightly spicy and moderately phenolic touch. Great lacing. I would like a tad more carbonation, but that’s just nit picking. Super solid.

Draught at Lezzet. Big fruity nose: banana and some spice. Very pretty hazy copper color, with a thick creamy head. Heavy banana initial with some tart pruney notes; in mid the sweetness rises and takes over; very smooth finish. Medium-thick body. Very good. But served too cold -- had to let it warm up a bit to get the aromas.
