330ml brown bottle. Initial pour was disapointingly clear, but this bottle was heavily sedimented. After a good rousing the appearance changes for the better, deeper golden shade and suitably hazy for the style. It holds a small white cap with very modest lacing. Nose has big clove, lemon, spice and banana. Taste has a wheat malt base, lemon and clove. Dry finish, lingering wheat and trace spicy yeast. Light body, average carbonation. Fairly typical weizen, decent overall.

DSG (12170) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2016
Bottle. Nice shiny cloudy yellow with a white head. Yeasty, very phenolic spicy aroma, with clove, some bread, and a bit of banana. Flavor is a bit sweetish, a bit tart, with yeast, wheat, some phenolic spiciness, and some nice fruitiness. Finishes with bread and a light bitterish touch. Medium-bodied, well-carbonated. Overall, a decent, enjoyable, well-made Weizen

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.

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.

Milky hazy golden ochre. Thin white head but nicely covering sticky lacing. Dry aroma has wheat, lactose, fruity notes. Medium body, soft carbonation, dry with long fruity finish, chewy, bit apricose also. Tasty with nice palate & look, I liked the milky feel here.
