3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Beerfes Kamikochi 2015. Pours nice hazy golden, persistent and foamy head. Aroma is thick, I am getting some koshihikari rice that feels actually alright (usually I don’t like that). No idea if they used it or not. Anyhow, also one of the strongest banana aromas that I have ever had in a weizen. Taste is also full on, thick with banana, candy, cloves and some herbal character. Good stuff!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hidetakayama Weizen 5% a souvenir from Mickey Blue Eyes. It ours a lovely cloudy straw gold with a fizzy white head that leaves a slapdash soapy lacing. A wheaty chewy light malt nose, ok clove spiciness but with an unfortunate buttery off-flavor lurking in the background. The taste is crackery wheat light malts, buttery popcorn diacetyl but mild & some light spices. Overall ok but could be better.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A strong corriander aroma, with cloves. Only a touch of banana. A creamy and sweet palate, with more banana now, along with some tropical fruits. A very pleasing Weizen.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light clove aroma
cloudy yellow, lowish head.
Flavorwise it hits a Hefeweizen from Oberbayern perfectly: Sweet wheat, vanilla, clove and plenty of bananas.
Kind of fitting I should try this in the Japanese alps.
If I have to critisize, then the body could be a bit fuller and chewier, but that doesnt detract from the enjoyment,
