hazy gold with a frothy white head. spicy aroma of banana, cloves, vanilla, ginger and fresh flowers. flavors of fresh cut flowers, vanilla, ginger, and coriander. not real banana-ish but it has a very nice spiced, herbal, flavor. another good one from these guys.

From a stubby 11.2 bottle, what appears to be a coded freshness date on the back label, sampled in a pint glass. Poured an cloudy pale orangey yellow with a tight foamy white head that dissipates into a thin bubbly, sudsy lacing. Aromas of clove, coriander, nutmeg, mild spiciness, fragrant orange juice and peel, a light backing of sweet grainy malts. I think this has a very appealing, inviting smell. Ample carbonation and a crisp, creamy light bodied mouthfeel, clove and sweet orange juice are first tastes I noticed, upon further sips, the coriander and nutmeg come out, some nuttiness from the yeast, ginger spicy, white peppery, grainy malts with light traces of white sugar, a nice dry finish. An excellent Witbier, tasty and balanced, I especially like the use of orange juice in the taste, a unique offering from a quality Japanese brewery.

Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a little head. Aroma of ginger and fruitness. Nice flavour of giniger with a hints of alcohol and citrus. Ends up you mouth with ginger.

Slight sour, orangey/lemon citrus and some sort of spice for aroma. Hazy lemon gold color with a head that filmed immediately. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation - not much bite. Starts with citrus, followed by orange oil, and, they say coriander, I won’t argue. Could be. Very clean and refreshing. Orange oil for the finish, along with the spice. Definitely good drink.

Rated 6/30/07. Cloudy light gold color. Small white head. Aroma is citrus and nutmeg. Flavor follows suit, but there is also a distinct ginger sensation. Very unique. Like a ginger beer mixed with a Witbier. Incredibly refreshing and unlike anything I have tried. Very impressed.

Bottle...finally a flavorful Japanese beer! This was delightful, well-carbonated, main flavors of orange (tasted a lot like Orangina) stood out. It went well with the Asian dish I had. I will be trying the other Hitachino products.

A light springy aroma, I think this is a truly great white ale. Some orange notes and spices, it has a pleasant vibrant flavor and aftertaste to it. Quite nice.

pours a pale cloudy golden with a medium thin lasting head. has a floral alcohol aroma with some coriander and oranges, and a very light grass and almost white grape smell. watery with light crisp bubbles. tastes of bread, lemons and fruit. very dry and refreshing.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2007
Bottle pours pale golden with a big white head that stays pretty well. Aromas of some corriander, orange, and grass. Flavor is much more yeasty with also a good dose of corriander and some slight citrus at the finish. Somewhat fizzy on the palate but light and refreshing.

The Japanese taking a stab at one of my beloved styles...and doing so well. Pours a little gold for my liking with no head and little bubbles. Aroma of grass and yeast. Taste of yeast, lemon and a crisp mouthfeel (a little wet though). Could pick up some coriander in the finish as well.
