Bottle, thanks KyotoLefty! Cloudy yellow, white foam, fine carbonation. Light citiric-dry nose, some clove. Medium light, yet chewy body. Clean, dry base, ok chewiness. Some spices - similar to a Franconian Weizen, slightly more tart though, light citrus notes in the finish. Pleasant summer drink.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap. I thought that I had rated this but apparently I hadn’t. Pours nice white-paw with a great foam top. Aroma is fruity, nothing off-putting, fruity, bananas and cloves. Taste is soft, refreshing and goes down really well. Truly great beer, probably my favourite weizen. Love it.

Tap at Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Hazy yellow shade. White head. Orchard fruit notes. Easy on the weiss notes. Has a lightness, balance and delicacy that makes it very refreshing. Not my favourite style but clearly a very good example.

Light hazy straw yellow color, at first big white head, dies fairly fast. Banana and clove phenolic, sweet scent. Malty, sweet, phenolic, sugary taste. Sweet aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
With warming up turns more towards apple.
