KansaiBeerLvrs (1572) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 10, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Bottle. Probably my favorite weizen in Japan, actually all of Fujizakura’s beers are very well made. It has a nice aroma with hints of grass & spice. It poured with a nice head of white foam over a milky gold effervescent body. The foam left a nice amount of lacing on the glass. The flavor is a great balance between spicy & fruity. Overall, an excellent Japanese hefeweizen.

shoulderbroken (1849) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle from local supermarket. Blond, slight cloudy with white fluffy head. Aroma banana, sweet, ice cream. Bit of wheat in there too but mostly sweetness. Taste nice. Bit more wheat and not so much sweetness as in the aroma. Some crispness but quite soft in the mouth. Not bad at all.

motelpogo (6203) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 19, 2012
On tap at Popeyes, summer ’08, first of a sample tray. Murky yellow with a lasting thin head; aroma of vanilla and banana with a slightly fishy, salty edge that is enticing; hints of lactic sourness, some bubblegum and a surprisingly dry finish. Quality stuff

EdKing (1786) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2011
Draught in Yokohama care of Tim Maloney. Cloudy yellow weizen with medium to large white foamy head. Nose is yeasty, lemon, clove, wheat, bubble gum, apple and grainy cereal. Sorry and a big hit of bananas in there! Taste is all of the above. As with most Japanese weizens the beer is very light and possibly lacks a bit of body but the fantastic nose and flavours make up for it.

Ernest (6142) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Rated in Apr 2008. Head is mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), with notes of banana and clove. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. A solid, clean rendition.

laiti (5406) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2011
Draught @ Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Rated on 05.09.2011
Looks like basic weizen. Aroma has sweetish banana, something stale and wheat notes. Palate is surprisingly low on CO2. Flavour is slightly sour, and somewhat weird. It has hints of solvent and no banana whatsoever. One weird weizen and not really nice. Might have been a bad keg now that I’ve seen other ratings.

tmoreau (2284) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2011
500 ml. sample bottle, poured to my 10 oz. tasting glass with a very clear, light golden hue, effervescent, rising bubbles, abundant, white bubbles and froth head foam, that slowly reduced to a persistent 1/2 inch layer, and wavy lacing. The aroma was light wheat and yeast, some candy sweetness, banana, hints of background spice as clove, and some complimentary bubblegum hints. The flavor added lively carbonation and light hop bitterness in a light bodied, but crisp and exceptionally sessionable brew. I was very impresssed by the light but very flavorful aspects, but also by the longevity of quality since first cellared back in April.

Tim Webb (226) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2010
Bottle bought from the brewery and shipped within Japan. Now styled is English as Fujzakura Heights Beer. Unspiced, not massively chewy and not much yeast-borne banana but the most authentic tasting Weizenbier I can recall outside Bavaria.
