Bottle, poured into tulip glass. Pale gold with a white head, forms large and rocky but recedes quickly. Aroma is spicy - nutmeg, coriander - and citrusy. Almost like a perfume, a little cloying. Taste follows, but better. Not much bitterness, but enough to balance the beer. Palate average. Lovely beer, but my first of the style - varietally correct?

Pours a cloudy gold but the white head disappears. I can’t really catch anything on the aroma. Tastes a bit spicy, novel.

Dobre piwo biale, wzorowane na belgijskich witach. Skorka pomaranczy curacao bardzo intensywnie wyczuwalna. Przyprawa kolendry takze sie zaznacza podczas picia. Spore zmetnienie, jasno zlote piwo, oczywiscie przed metnoscia, moze piana mogla by byc wieksza ale przyjemnie sie je degustowalo.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rebellious funk in a bottle. Rejects beer conformity and produces a distinct - if unaccomplished - beer.
Initial reaction to aroma was that it was reminiscent of a pilsner. But behind that veneer lies the spice, orange and nutmeg,
Lack of head and murky carbonated-orange-colour give it a rather grimy and unpleasant look. The taste makes up for that somewhat. Its a light and refreshing mouthful with an orangina-style orange peel which is balanced by the cogs of coriander and nutmeg, Original but needs varnishing IMO.

600 yen on tap at Bungalow. It’s a nice mildly spicy beer with a flatter taste than a regular weizen. Lightly carbonated and citrusy. Nice.

Faint fruity aroma, pours golden with a thin white head. Tastes fruity, smooth, mild nutmeg aftertaste, an interesting beer. Try it.

Bottle from Holiday Wine Cellar: Finally a bottle from Hitachino that didn’t explode once opened. Pours with a huge amount of soda like fizz head but it quickly retreats leaving behind a naked beer the color of gold with a tint of white. Barely are there sign of aroma and what aroma there is it’s minor with notes of grained barley and dash of coriander or other spicing. The flavor is lightly spiced with coriander and orange peel but overall subtle and to its advantage tasting more authentic to white ale then other micro’s I have tasted from the states.
