3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Poured cloudy golden orange with a medium sized white head that left little lacing on the glass. Aroma of ginger and wheat. Tastes mostly of ginger and other spices, with wheat malt, lemon grass and citrus. I was really surprised that this Japanese Wit was this good. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cL bottle. Pours hazy yellow to orange with a white head. Spiced and belgian wit like wheat aroma. Mild orange fruity and citric too. Dense ginger soapy flavour, coriander sure - but there is a lot more to it, nutmeg too. Mild sweetness and light flowery wheat accent. Ends quite flowery - like eating a bouquet - a well - perhaps just a flower or two :) Different but not unpleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pint bottle from that wondrous beer haven: Knightly Spirits. Pours a tantalizing one-inch white head and a delicious aroma of sour yeast, zesty spice, and citrus. Flavors include less yeast, more citrus, coriander, apple, soap, and zests like cinnamon and allspice. Light/medium body and medium/full carbonation. Delicious and refreshing; I am very impressed by this Japanese brewery doing Belgian brews.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours the color of a mimosa with a big white head. Nose is orange, grass and a bit of ginger. Taste is orange, balance with the spice. Very good taste for the style. The spices come out a bit in the finish. Mouthfeel is crisp, and nice. Very Good wit, and a nice surprise.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2008 Bottle. Pours a pale orange (almost the color of watered-down orange juice) with a big white head. Nose is orange, with a bit of wheat and a hint spicy yeast. Taste is clean wheat coupled with a pronounced note of orangey citrus, and a spicey coriander bitterness in the back of the mouth that persists through the finish. Mouthfeel is crisply carbonated, but with an almost creamy body reminiscent of (again) fresh squeezed orange juice. One of a kind beer -- I can’t imagine a more perfect brunch beer.
