Pours cloudy orange, like watered down grapefruit juice. Not a very strong spice and yeast nose found in a good wit. The body and texture is good, but this one lacks a backbone of flavor. I pick up some white pepper and coriander in the finish. So far, this brewery has yet to impress me, especially at the prices they charge for bottles.

Golden, Cloudy with a bit of sediment floating inside (umm.. ooops says the guy who poured it) Not really any head. Canít smell much, but my nose is a little stuffed. Lightyly hoppy taste in a way that sort of drifts away like that stoner friend you meet on the street. Very nice beer indeed.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Dark golden coloured. Looks to have sediment floating around but it does not. Wonderful complex aroma. Tart cabonated taste. Flavor is of cirtus mostely lemon maybe a bit to much. 3rd great beer in a row from this brewer.

thornecb (4373) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Pours clear gold into a tumbler. Bright white micro head with good retention. Rice and sour orange notes. Thin and very dry with slight spicy wit flavor and abrupt finish. Not a whole lot going on...but not bad, either.

WisconsinBeer (705) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Hazy pale yellow color with a decent amount of particulates floating around. Its too bad that Hitachino is not more widely distributed, because I would like to try more of their beers! Anyway, this beer is light on the palate and well carbonated. Citrus zest and wheat dominate the palate, but there is also some lemon candy in there. Very faint spiciness rounds it out. Pleasantly surprised by this beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2006
Murky gold with a lean, white head. Nose is "zippy" (donít ask) with citrus and some spiciness. Lemony and peppery. I find Iím liking to add yís to everything. For that, I beg forgiveness. Anyhow, the flavor reminds me of lemon drops, which rocks by the way. I love those damned things. Hint of spice underneath followed with doses of wheat. It finishes with lemons and sugar goodness.

pineypower (2504) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2006
Pours out a nice cloudy almost pale orange juice color with a small white lively head. Aroma is of spice and some lemon zest. Taste is nice and smooth, very drinkable with notes of citrus and some spice here and there, some yeast on the finish. Very solid white ale

MrManning (2006) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle- Pours initial sparkling gold, and then seems to haze up a bit. Nice frothy 2 finger head. Aromas are zesty citrus (like juice), nutmeg, yeast. STraight forward, but pleasing. Pretty sweet orange flavour, again, like juice. Mildly spicy with yeasty citrus rind finishing it off. Seriously drinkable. Bottle bought at Beer Depot in Ann Arbour, MI.

pricey, but very nice. Has spicy attributes I dislike in other beers, yet work well in the context of this beer.
