12 oz. botttle smells like sweaty balls and cat vomit, but only mildly offensive. A charming ultra-hazy, extremely pale yellow. Medium body with perfect carbonation and quite wet. Tastes peppery with coriander and a dash of lemon peel. Aftertaste is like very mild slightly spoiled OJ.

good import, quality brew, a bit watery but still somewhat flavorful, probably the best beer from japan sweet white appearance as well.

Bottle. Pours a nice hazy golden color, slight aroma of citrus zest and coriander. Flavor reminds me more of an American Wheat than a Belgian Wit, but the Coriander is noticeable. Too much citrus - probably from the orange peel - on the finish for me. Still good though.

1 Pint, 5 Oz. bottle. Poured hazy paler golden with a medium cap of white head. The aroma picked up heavy nutmeg, citrus zest, and coriander with sweet notes deeper down.. some oranges, some almost (but not quite) caramel notes. The flavor was a bit messy with sour/acidic orange juice building through the finish.. spices were all over the place (white pepper, coriander, and nutmeg all came through at times).. with some balance issues to be addressed. Light-medium bodied on the palate (but a tad cloying at the finish).. a bit sharp and acidic throughout.. left a spicy orange juice and wheaty finish. Decent overall.

Bottled. An unclear light yellow beer with a thin white head. The aroma is of ginger, coriander, and citrus. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of ginger and a boring coriander not. The body is thin.

Pours a slightly hazed straw with a white head. Nose is lemon and citrus on the nose with a straw edge to it that just gives an earthy, plant like fragrance. Very perfume like, but also like walking through a field of aromatic flower stems that were just cut. I could take a whiff of this one for hours. Flavor is smooth and even. There is a straw like quality that stays earthen and thick, though still light enough overall to enjoy. Feel is smooth and silky with a balanced carbonation. Definitely drinkable, though it is fairly different and unique which might detract for some. Plus for such a high price (again with the Hitachino), is it really worth it? $5? Hmmm. No.

The pour was a slightly cloudy copper color with a compact white head. Some lacing. The aroma was yeast, spice (coriander & cinnamon) along with a bit of citrus. The flavor was dominated by yeast and citrus. Some floral notes as well. The finish was succinct and I thought this was an very nice compliment to my sushi.

Hazy, golden/orange appearance with a small off white head and little lacing. Spicy aroma with a good dose of orange zest and lemon. Tart, dry, herbal, spicy taste with some wheaty flavors below deck. Medium-to-light bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a dry short lived finish.

i never really liked these white ales. this one starts out much like the rest. mostly ginger carrot type vegetable yeecchh! but let this beer settle in the glass for twenty minutes or so and you get some really good flavors mainly lemon that complement the texture (which is slickish). Aaron you did alright. first white ale i like! don’t know if it’s exactly beer,but it is a good brew.
