The aroma is fruit, banana, spicy. The appearance is very opaque red/orange/amber color, off white head. The flavor is very sweet, fruit, banana, chocolate, spicy, cloves, like wheat ale. Like a here almost, but strong and sweet. The finish is sweet, spicy, cloves. Medium in body, a tad thick, a little syrupy, not much. Not too thick for the eisbock it claims to be. Enjoyable.

gnoff (7975) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 19, 2014
As "Hitachino Commemorative Ale 2014".
330 ml bottle thanks to Ingo! Brewed 12-2013, BB 12-2014, sampled on April 18, 2014. Marked 8% ABV.
Hazy copper color, big lasting off-white head. Sweet, spicy, orange peel, citrus, alcohol, light phenolic scent. Alcohol, sweet, citrus, sugary, pine, spicy taste. Sweet, alcohol aftertaste. Medium to smooth to fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Alcohol comes through a bit too much, more than noticeable and also dominates the sweetness, probably would’ve liked it better personally with a bigger malt body or a lower ABV, still, not bad at all, just coul’ve been even better (for me).

JonMoore (1896) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2014
Bottle - hazy brown colour with a slim off-white head. Spicey malty vanilla aroma. Flavours are spicey orange peel, marmalade, malts, fruity, sweet, bitter, alcohol. Interesting but don’t like the texture, finding it hard to get down.

330ml bottle from Hasegawa Liquor Store, Tokyo Railway Station. Bought as Commemorative Ale 8% abv. Cloudy medium brown with a reddish tinge. Flowery yeasty spicy aroma. Sweet honey and spice flavour. Sharp with slightly sickly sweet alcohol aftertaste. A bit unbalanced and not really my sort of beer.
