3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The Sampler, Brooklyn 300ml ($8): Called Ginga Kogen Beer... assuming it is this because of the style. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is banana, rice, and a bit of spice. Taste is sort of dry hefe weizen with a kind of grainy weird finish. Not bad, but far from great. Nice blue bottle.

Banana tart nose. Sweet malt flavor, peppery finish. Classic Weizen style, a bit too light and simple

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
29.06.2013, 0,3l bottle @ Hakkasan NY:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is slightly fruity, wheat, citrus, yeast, hay, dough, hints of banana and citrus peel. Taste is nicely balanced, wheat, citrus, hay, yeast, hints of clove, dough and banana. Mild bitterness, basically a really nice and balanced beer. And coming from Japan, it even beats most German weissbier!

Ginga Kogen Beer Silver Bottle 0,33L.
Limpid clear orange color, much libely with a good bubbly presence, very evanescent head. Modest aroma, little notes of citrus, grains, yest and little other. Very prickly taste, round and discreet alcoholic content. Little stum and cereals notes with a little tip of fruity wine.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A German Hefe, that wasn’t exactly like other hefes. It a little of the sake/rice flavor added to the very mild banana and the usual clove. Normal yellow color with a big white head, little to no head.
