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! donít know if itís exactly beer,but it is a good brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Extra pale cloudy yellow. Spritzy. Spicy/bitter orange peel flavor. Wheaty. Not bad, but could be more refreshing, and a 750ml is too much at once.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Delicious sweet nose, lots of coriander with some peach and apricot. Cloudy yellow with a slight ring of foam and unmoving bubbles that just kind of hover. Lots of coriander taste, with some hints of citrus and vanilla. Very well done, extremely smooth palate. Surprising from this brewery, as Iíve been disappointed by other efforts. Really great wit.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 wonít argue. Could be. Very clean and refreshing. Orange oil for the finish, along with the spice. Definitely good drink.
