Aroma of vanilla and coriander. Color is yellow/gold with a two-finger foam. Very nicely blended flavors of biscuit, coriander, orange and wheat. Lingering sugary caramel on the finish. Overall, this is a delicious and full flavored brew from Japan. Well done!

Towey1989 (530) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle at The Rum & Crab Shack, St Ives. Pours a hazy golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of wheat, nutmeg, coriander, some orange peel, grain, little bubblegum and spicy hops. Taste of wheat, orange peel, nutmeg, some cinnamon, coriander and spicy, peppery hops. Light bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, spicy, peppery bitterness in the finish. Something different when it comes to a witbier. Fruity, herbal and peppery. Delicate and pretty decent.

Sigmund (5703) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
11.2 fl. oz. bottle, from Vinmonopolet. BB date 01.2014. ABV is 5%. Golden colour, only slightl hazy (some sediment remained in the bottle), moderate to low white head. Moderate aroma of coriander, nutmeg and orange peel. Fairly refreshing flavour, medium dry, wheaty with notes of coriander, nutmeg and some orange peel / citrus. Pleasant to drink - I have a somewhat fresher bottle too, but this one seemed to have kept well. Might buy again.

Aroma: citrus is the main thing to come through. Appearance: not much head and disappears quickly. Pale yellow straw colour. Taste: really nice peppery taste with orange citrus coming through. Beer but not very malty. Palate: fairly low carbonation. Overall: different and I like it.

jamaty (1155) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Ambar claro, color muy uniforme, ligeramente turbia. Apenas espuma. Aroma no muy marcado agradable, cítrico. En boca sencillamente sublime. Cremosa, super refrescante y un equilibrio perfecto. Base de malta y excelente aportación de lúpulos y resto de ingredientes añadidos para darle sabores especiados, cilantros, naranja dulce... Gas perfecto y final magnífico que pide otro trago. Todo un descubrimiento para una witbier japonesa de clase mundial¡!!
