Can from Daiei in Himonya for my train commute home. Drank straight from the can. Very light banana and clove with some grain in the nose. Slightly watery on the palate with a little bit of cardboard. A little bit of clove in the finish. Not enough flavor or body.

Pours dirty pale, hazy and not very nice colour actually. Foam is also not like weizen’s at all, I wonder if this can could have been an odd one. Aroma is wheaty, sweet bananas and a bit of cloves. Bit too sweet and bubblegummy for me. Taste feels carbonated, has some banana and fruitiness but in general is does not leave very fresh impression. Hmmm... When I had this beer maybe 2 years ago, I remember I actually liked it. This time, not really.

EdKing (2133) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2015
Pours clear pale yellow, medium foam head which dissipates. Nose is lemon, wheaty, creamy, sweet, estery, banana, little caramel. Strong pungent weizen nose. Body as always with canned Japanese weizens is a little weak, but there’s lemon, wheat, creaminess, light banana, little acidic. Decent and refreshing.

jdjuice (447) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JUL 22, 2014
Purchased at neighborhood Lawson. Pours hazy whitish yellow with soapy head. Nose is bready and nutty with hint of bananas. Taste is less fruity than I expected, but then got a wallop of bananas on the finish. Pretty good for a conbini brew, mediocre for anything else.
