3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty run of the mill Weiss. Trad flavours are there, but not really projected. This leaves the whole thing feeling a bit flat. Decent enough drinking, but there are so many better examples even in Japan.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Gotemba Beer Kingdom festival. Pale blond colour, creamy head. Aroma is wheat, lots of it. Not much else. Taste similar, bit of cream, some banana, maybe little bit of spice. Quite nice and refreshing but not wildly exciting.

Draught at the brewery.
Glowing cloudy yellow color, very bubbly, with a thick, fine, head. Aroma has a decent sour edge to it, lemony, with banana and clove. Medium rich malt flavor. Refreshing, and not too sweet. Tart as well. Well done. Not very special, but good. A bit thin.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow with white head. Fruity yeasts and a faint citrus nose. Taste was lemon zest with distant spices and a "morning on the farm" earthiness. Slight hint of metal. Palate thin, refreshing. Cant compete with the glory of the Fujizakura at all.

500mL Bottle: Light hazy, full white head. Nose of light wheat and some citrusy notes, a bit of orange. The flavor is thin, light wheat and some funky yeast, some citrus and grass. Ok, but not that impressive.
