Westkyoto77 (606) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 21, 2013
Draught. Hazy light yellow, fine white head. Bubblegum nose. Fantastic mouthfeel - creamy and rounded yet not too marshmallowy. Enough banana flavour for me. Hint of spice in the finish. And absolute class act.

UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 Green banana nose. Banana cake, lemon, pepper, lovely creamy finish. Pretty smooth and enjoyable weizen, certainly one the top Japanese weizen.

gyllenbock (7168) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
On tap at Popeye in August 2013. Hazy golden with a medium white head. This was a rather typical Weizen with citrus, banana, some wheat and light spices. Soft and nicely drinkable in the hot summer in Tokyo.

maekchu (3249) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 20, 2013
Draught at Qbrick. Superb banana and bubble gum mixed aroma. Cloudy honey color. Fresh and fruity, lemon and then sweet pears. Thin-medium body. Big, fairly intense and over-the-top weizen. Full of flavor. Great.

have bought this beer more then any other since i have moved to japan.you get a very true bavarian experience drinking this,only thing that might be "missing" is the more pronounced banana flavor that i enjoy in bavarian wheat beers!

KansaiBeerLvrs (4173) - 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 (3449) - 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 (7705) - 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 (2318) - 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.
