After far too long, I’ve finally gotten around to some Hitachino Nest beer. This is a unique Weizen, for sure. Dark yellow pour with two fingers of foam. Honey, bread, and potent clove on the nose. Flavors of cream, subtle fruit, spice, light citrus, and candy-like malt. This one’s definitely sweet. It tastes fuller than its modest ABV. Hopefully this is my first of many from Hitachino.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ooh, I lika da cute liddow owl! Has okay head and golden colour. Aroma is mustiness like a wit, some leather, shoe polish. Flavour is a meaty brew, lots of malt and leather flavour with hints of wit on the backend. Nice and balanced between light and heavy, a good mix, expertly crafted.
