Hazy golden with fluffy head. Nose is nutmeg, coriander, spices, a bit of citrus. Taste matches, pretty heavily spiced. Eh, it's ok.

DrunkSanta410 (476) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a light hazy yellow, one finger white head. Aroma of banana, a bit of pepper, light grass and faint citrus. Taste is interesting, definitely bubblegum, a bit of spice / pepper a bit of bread and mildly fruity. Very interesting! Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Finishes slightly dry. Iím pretty impressed by this one, not one of my favorite styles but I did enjoy this one,

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2015 Re-rating: Bottle at Harema in Yoyogi. Poured into a shaker pint. Pours a hazy gold with modest white head. Corriander, nutmeg, cinnamon on the nose with a slight hint of grain. Very clean and a little too carbonated the style. Dry and bitter on the palate with a minimal sweet undertone. Tastes of clove, cinnamon, cardamom with a hint of banana as it comes to room temperature. Peppery finish. Original rating: On tap at Popeye in Tokyo. Served in a weissbier vase. Hazy goldenrod color with a nice head. Strong corriander, nutmeg aroma with a hint of banana. Clean on the palate compared to other witbiers, but not in a bad way at all. Banana and cardamom present on the tongue. Spice isnít overbearing however. Hitachino doesnít really disappoint. Solid witbier.

I love this beer. Man Iím hopped out and this refreshes, itís light, balanced, drinks great really cold. Whatís not to like. Top subtle spicing, nice light Belgian funk, bit of ripe fruit. Iím wondering why I donít give beers I love a really high score more often? Iím done with huge stouts - apart from that Omnipollo one I canít find again- this is it.
