Wombata (375) - Kobe, JAPAN - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle with 3/2014 Drink By Date. Aroma: Malty, roasted grain, caramel and banana notes with cinnamon spice. Palate: As this was aged 6 months in my fridge the body was a bit lighter than if it had been fresh. Medium Body. Flavor: Very much like the aroma. Comment: Look forward to retasting when it’s fresh as well as from tap.

biirusaikou (555) - - MAR 23, 2014
Mild apricot aroma. Nice fruity malt flavor, creamy peach, then usual banana cake, hints of alcohol, peppery finish. Another well crafted and rounded Fujizakura brew, on par with some German legends.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1652) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 15, 2013
7% on tap at Bungalow. 600 yen. Sold Out! Another keg arrived while we were there, saved again! This is a souped up version of their great weizen with a bigger bolder biscuity malt profile for winter. A lovely cloudy honey gold. Spicy, cinnamon, biscuity, zesty full bodied. An incredibly tasty beer where you don’t get the alcohol at all. This beer will not disappoint - fantastic stuff.

GenkiGonzo (217) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 13, 2013
UPDATED: APR 30, 2014 Bottle from Yamaoka. Pours a dark cloudy orange. Aroma of sweet banana and wheat. Fantastic creamy, banana taste. Great lasting flavour, one of the best weizen bocks I?ve had.

the mouthfeel is tremendous;30 minutes after finishing the beer my tongue kept rubbing against my upper gums trying to squeeze any last remnants of the weizen. the beer is 6.7 avb,but drinks like a 5.3.the only thing i would think about changing is making it just a little,little less sweet.

buzzoven (376) - JAPAN - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle from Tanakaya. Rich smooth pour revealed a hearty nose of overripe banana, apricots, wheat, plum. Mouthfeel was creamy and hazed out with sweet carbonation tickling the sides of my tongue. Slightly syrupy finish on the lips and a slight boozy warmth rising in the chest and throat towards the end of this worthy brew.

kabutomushi (11) - JAPAN - DEC 22, 2008
2008 bottle from Yamaoka. Hazy dark amber color. Strong banana aroma with some spicy notes, especially cloves. Very smooth malty flavor Suprisingly quaffable, not as rich or sweet as I expected.

jonno (2274) - JAPAN - DEC 17, 2008
This souped up Weizen really hits the spot. More of everything, especially the banana. The only problem may be the sweetness, but I enjoyed that

KyotoLefty (6174) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 8, 2013 2013 Version. Tap at iBrew. Super rich and malty, cake-lik. Wonderfully luscious and rich. This is really a world-class weizenbock, possibly better than Aventinus now. Huge cloves, nice banana, light caramel and fudge.

2007 version, bottle from Yamaoka: 8/3/8/4/15. Deep orange-amber to medium brown color. Super tall, extra fine head. Cloudy. Fragrant weizen aroma, bananas, cloves, a touch sour but mainly sweet. Quite sweet banana and wheat malt flavor. Huge bananas, some spice, chocolate. Tastes weaker than 7%. The round mellow flavor and rich malt grew on me. Very easy to drink and rich, dessert-like, though a touch too sweet with not enough to balance that.
