330 ml bottle - Disappointing, after much hype Hitachino lacks the creative of other Wit beers. Nutmeg aromas but faint, like the orange peels.

Garrold (2212) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Waitrose. Opaque, straw colour. Thin, fluffy, white head. Some hay. Get some of the orange, and the coriander. Not much beyond that. Taste has some initial sweetness, turning light dry. Soapy, thin palate. Finishes much the same. Pretty bland.

Mjp12 (616) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
A great wit beer, full of coriander spice, but quite clean tasting, as it doesn’t have as much of the yeast attack of the classic Belgian varieties. Perfect with Asian food.
