Westkyoto77 (439) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 31, 2013
Can. Cloudy pale yellow thin head. Aroma of banana, dough, spices and hay. A little on the fizzy side. Light body. Tastes of said banana and white bread, but with an odd mediciney touch. Not enormously sophisticated, but kinda cool.

Quite fizzy, light banana bread nose. Sweet fruity taste with little spice. A bit watery, not amazing but a good island brew still.

On tap at the GJBF Osaka. Wow, this is actually a really flavorful weizen, with nice spicy notes to it. A cloudy gold pour. Clove dominates no real banana, I was impressed. I liked this more than the goya dry but that is a more uniquely Japanese beer.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAY 14, 2013
Can from a souvenir store in central Naha. Unclear golden colour with a nice white medium head. Pleasant aroma of fruit and wheat with some bana and bit spice to it. Good filling mouthfeel. Sweet like wheaty fruity banana bit flavour with a nice bitterness. Nice. 6/3/7/3/13: 3,2. Draught at the Helios Pub: Hazy like golden with a big white creamy steady head, nice look! Pleasant fresh wheaty fruity yeasty aroma with some banana underneath. Good filling mouthfeel. Flavour is fresh with wheat, yeast, fruit, banan and a good medium bitterness. Nice! Better than the good canned version.

jonno (2130) - JAPAN - JUN 7, 2012
Soft estery banana head. Very smooth and creamy - banana of course, some chives, some caramel and a bit of butter (diayacetyl?). Solid drinking, but slightly low carbonation, especially if this is a kristall weizen.

TimE (2977) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 14, 2011
tons of bananas, very estery. Light body. Enjoyable, but a bit cloying. Still best beer in the Okinawa sun.

Bottle. Clear golden color with a low, fine head. Aroma of whaet malt, banana, butter, and spices. A bit too buttery but ok. Creamy, full, mouth. Rich, estery flavor, creamy. Too sweet, and too much butter. Ok but not really good.
