KansaiBeerLvrs (4468) - 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.

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.
