Bottle. Orange, yellow with a white foam. Aromas are lemony yeast with bready notes. Light toast with light oranges and candy sugar. Flavours are sweet biscuit and wheat with lemon and herbal. Traces of honey and banana with a crisp finish. Nice.

OleR (4799) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
Pours a shady straw-yellow. Mid-sized foamy white head. Delicious aroma. Starts with a whiff of flowers and nectar, then some mild spice tones, oranges and lemon peel. Medium full, slick mouthfeel. Taste is clean with a fine dryness. Rounded spice notes, crisp wheat malts, and distinct citrus fruits. A certain sharpness in the finish. Overall, a refreshing and well balanced Wit. [Bottle at Nydalen Bryggeri og Spiseri]

Bottle on a sunny day in Manchester at the Brewdog Bar. Pale cloudy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy, cumin. Flavour is sweet and spicy, some ginger, some sharpness in the finish. Quite odd really, would like to try again.

Fantastic complex wheat beer. Light, refreshing but never simple. Floral, citrus and spice all in a clean very palatable package.Too good to drink fast but too good to drink slow.

This was my first Japan brew that was actually brewed in Japan. Based on american brewed Japan brews was not expecting much from this one. Hazy Golden brew with mostly an orange aroma. Planned on taste being nothing but orange juice but instead got a fair share of coriander, wheat, and some other spices. Much better than I thought it would be. Pretty good brew actually and if it wasn’t for the import price tag might would buy more.

A very refreshing beer with an odd sweet flavor and no bitter finish. Has a light fruity aroma and cloudy gold color. Worth drinking.
