3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A slightly hazy medium gold color with a big foamy head. As Mark says, "another great brew from Ginga Kogen". These folks are right on target, one of the best Japanese breweries! A very nice Weiss. No adjuncts, remarkable for a Japanese beer!

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Yamaya. Tangy citrus and spice aromas, but not overdone. Smooth body if a little light and a touch overcarbonated. But overall this was solid. More interesting flavours than most anything else in a can available here in Japan. Quite satisfying.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from local Raku Ichi store. Very fruity and estery, with some orange peel and coriander notes. Cloudy light yellow-orange color with 1 cm. head. Smooth flavors with some yeast poking through. Very interesting mixed light sweet/bitter aftertaste. A bit watery and sweetish overall. Ingredients listing does not include either orange peel or coriander but they seem clearly present. Nice stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2005 Canned, thanks IslandHaole!
Hazy yellow, small head. Banana aroma. Esters and sweetness aretoned down. The mouthfeel is soft, and its solidly malty. Well made and fairly refreshing authentic hefeweizen.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has orange peel, smoke and cloves in the nose. Nice light body, slightly sour and yeasty and then a refreshing orange peel finish. Still too watery for me.
