11.2 oz. bottle. Aroma is faint banana and clove. Taste is woody with a mildly sour aftertaste. Everything about this beer is subtle. Very drinkable, but not one I would knock myself out to try and find again.

DrunkSanta410 (368) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a light hazy yellow, one finger white head. Aroma of banana, a bit of pepper, light grass and faint citrus. Taste is interesting, definitely bubblegum, a bit of spice / pepper a bit of bread and mildly fruity. Very interesting! Light mouthfeel, medium carbonation. Finishes slightly dry. Iím pretty impressed by this one, not one of my favorite styles but I did enjoy this one,

willisread (180) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 12, 2015
On tap at Popeye in Tokyo. Served in a weissbier vase. Hazy goldenrod color with a nice head. Strong corriander, nutmeg aroma with a hint of banana. Clean on the palate compared to other witbiers, but not in a bad way at all. Banana and cardamom present on the tongue. Spice isnít overbearing however. Hitachino doesnít really disappoint. Solid witbier.

I love this beer. Man Iím hopped out and this refreshes, itís light, balanced, drinks great really cold. Whatís not to like. Top subtle spicing, nice light Belgian funk, bit of ripe fruit. Iím wondering why I donít give beers I love a really high score more often? Iím done with huge stouts - apart from that Omnipollo one I canít find again- this is it.

330 ml bottle - Disappointing, after much hype Hitachino lacks the creative of other Wit beers. Nutmeg aromas but faint, like the orange peels.
