Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2016
Light gold, very cloudy, thick head. Has a nice clean sugary banana aroma. Tart wheaty character with apple, banana, light malts, and a touch of phenol.

mrjez (478) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 16, 2016
Had many times, this time bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a big foamy head. Very citrus-forward aroma, lemon, lovely yeast esters, spice, a little banana. Flavour is on point, nice creamy wheat with light spice and citric tang on the backend. Good medium body, very smooth and drinkable, consistent balance and flavour to the bottom of the glass. Certainly one of the best hefes you can buy in Japan, local or otherwise.

willisread (2543) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 27, 2015
Fall Keyaki 2015. Hazy gold with a huge soapy head. Lots of banana, clove and nutmeg in the nose. Slight citrus and lemony tartness on the palate. Easy drinking and very enjoyable. One of the best hefe’s in Japan.

jonas (6863) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - AUG 27, 2015
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.

jinroh (1241) - ESTONIA - AUG 5, 2015
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.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
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.
