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.

Une superbe blanche à la robe trouble et à la mousse moyennement abondante. Le nez est fruité, épicé, élégant et complexe. La bouche allie ampleur, fruit, fraîcheur, délicatesse et équilibre. Un délice absolu, surtout en fin de soirée

Sympathique blanche belge du Japon ... Ce genre de bière, je l’aurais particulièrement appréciée; il y a quelques années. Seulement là, mlagré sa belle tenue, je trouve ça trop "sweet". L’épice est ici pourtant sympathique.

TheKernOwl (108) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Belg wit-style brew. Nose: wheaty, waxy lemon, spices, with a very slight seawater sour tang. In the mouth: wheatiness felt here too, but overall a bit sweet and you get the nutmeg. Nutmeg, you say? Yeh, I said it. And it’s not bad at all, actually.

KoNrRiI (1033) - Århus, DENMARK - APR 13, 2016
0.1 draft. A honey-hazy, honey-colored beer with a small, white head. Aroma of fruits, barley, cereals, some fruits, and perhaps a touch of spices. A sweet taste full of honey, flowers, delicate hops, and citruses. A medium body, a slick texture, and a soft carbonation. Finish is medium long and has even more honey on offer than the rest. Overall it is a tasty and drinkable brew, enough said.
