Been looking forward to a Hitachino brew for a while & this is my 1st. Cloudy gold color. Aroma of corn and orange peel. Sips lively and tingly on the tongue, medium bodied. Crisp fruity flavor of citrus up front which blends into a dry hoppy like middle and finishes with flavors of wheat and wet garbage funk and skunk. Very middle of the road witbier.

One2remeber (236) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2016
Bottled H.15.08. Golden yellow, bright orange hue. Foamy white head quickly dissipates. Very cloudy, hazy, no particles. Holiday/Christmas spices. Lemonade juice. Pungent, juicy, citrus burst at backend, like grapefruit juice, very different for a wit. Not as dry as I am use too, relatively low phenolics or flaked wheat zest. Complimentary sulfur note, not distracting. Unique, not my favorite with the holiday spices, makes less drinkable, but still enjoyable.

tightslice (707) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Bomber at Whole Foods Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is coriander, mild orange blossoms, orange peels. Taste is slightly tart and bitter with a teensy bit of white wine. Floral chalkiness is mild. Not that bad but not that exciting either.

Bottiglia, 33cl. Colore giallo pallido torbido, la schiuma è durata circa un secondo. Aroma di agrumi e spezie, in particolare coriandolo. In bocca agrumi e noce moscata. Corpo medio, carbonazione media. Non male ma credevo meglio.

yourilevesque (901) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Dégustée au Château La Calme en compagnie de Mademoiselle Irina. La bière est jaune paille. La mousse blanche nu dure qu’une seconde à peine. Un instant plus tard, le liquide est à vif. Les houblons sont floraux et herbacés. De la coriandre en grains fraîchement passée au mortier. Peu de fruits avant de porter le liquide a mes lèvres. L’orange à jus se révèle pleinement, poussée par une forte effervescence qui poursuit son travail jusque dans mon estomac. Une teinte de blé suri en attaque puis du fruit supporté par une faible amertume en fin de bouche. Une délicieuse représente d’un style que je regarde habituellement de haut, force m’est de le reconnaître.

sinfull (1261) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Hazy , yellow color. Huge, white head. Aroma of oranges , wheat malt , hint of spices and yeasts. Juicy taste , I literally felt orange juice in my mouth. However it wasn't annoying or overwhelming. Just perfect balance . Moderate malty sweetness. Crispy, refreshing , thirst quenching but not watery beer.

Pours light and hazy with moderate white head, diminishing fairly quick. Slight sniff of coriander, orange on the nose. Very, very easy to drink. Would be a good summer beer. My very first Japanese brew - 乾杯

Bottle from Alko. Pours pale golden with a thin white head. Sweet, spicy, some ginger. Lemony with ginger dominating. Summer brew, refreshing.
