Bottle. Poured a cloudy bright yellow with a tasty-looking medium head. Beautiful aromas of orange peel and coriander, with a tough of nutmeg just as advertised. Super elegant body- refined and balanced, yet quite juicy and refreshing. These guys really know their stuff. Classy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mjp12 (492) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
A great wit beer, full of coriander spice, but quite clean tasting, as it doesn’t have as much of the yeast attack of the classic Belgian varieties. Perfect with Asian food.

I was sceptical at first, but this was a very delicious white ale. Nice floral, orangey aromas with spice notes. A distincive taste that begins sourish with a typical wheat beer yeast background and moves into a spicy finish. Well-rounded and quite drinkable.

MichaelAwesome (4744) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Easy drinkable with some spruce, a spices and yeast. A little bit too tasteless and dull than appreciated. Ok one with no heights. Average and boring piwo.

McTapps (4745) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2015
Bottle from trade with Calisky - thank you! The beer has got a hazy yellow-orange colour with an airy head and medium to thin body. Aroma of wheat, white bread and flowers. Taste of thin wheat, green nuts, thyme, mild herbs, bread grains, citrus fruits and straw. Mild and easy to drink with a refreshing twist. Good one.

Garry_Evans (47) - HONG KONG - JAN 1, 2015
Cloudy orange colour, with quick disappearing head. Aroma is oranges, hay, hint of cloves. A little thin and over-carbonated on the palate, with fresh taste with orangey sweetness and hint of bitterness at the end. Refreshing on a summer’s day, but a little unsatisfactory. I bought a case and have struggled to get enthusiasm to drink the last few bottles.

Really lovely white beer. There's a good amount of banana and citrus. Makes me wish it was summer.

Second Japanese beer try after Sapporo. Excellent balance, flavorful and spices abound. Japan does better beers than Sapporo it seems; damn good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
