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!

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.

Tap at CBM Awajicho. Pale blond cloudy, small whittle fluffy head. Aroma is classic weizen, banana, clove, slight funkiness. Taste is good, nice and creamy, banana, bit of citrus, bit of bubblegum. Quite spritzy. Pretty nice.

On tap at Popeye, August 2013. Hazy golden/yellow with a medium white head. Aroma and taste of banana, wheat, some coriander and yeast. Fairly light body with not that much carbonation. An ok beer.

On Tap. Aroma: Banana, some spice (coriander). Palate: Mid-weight, not too heavy. Flavor: Like the nose. Medium length on the finish. Comments: A balanced style that isn’t overly sweet. Dry finish. Solid.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 17, 2010
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.

jonas (6479) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle. 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,

Bottle 500ml at Sosuke Ryokan, Takayama, Room 8 – shared with Mette. Cloudy yellow – white head. Sweetness, spicy, light banana notes, fruity, coriander, wheaty, spicy, herbal. Nice.
