Bottle of 33cl, in a Trappist glass. First of all, very nice bottle look but come on, it’s not a real Japanese beer ! Good light aroma, but very slightly perceptible... Great cloudy golden lager appearance. For the taste and palate, we can easily taste the green tea which overhelm all the taste, like the beer said. In fact, we’re in front of a good, but not best, beer. It’s a lager with tea... Try it for sure !

- Alcoholpercentage van 4,5% - Biertje gedronken destijds dat me niet kon bekoren - Kan me veel lekkerder biertjes voorstellen, maar kan met mijn smaakvoorstelling te maken hebben - Vandaar mijn lage beoordeling ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer is brewed with green tea extracts and Yuzu, an asian citrus fruit that is far different to the citrus fruits we know. Nevertheless it gives an fresh citric taste to the beer. This in combination with a sharp, spicy side note and a smooth overall palate is truely nice to drink. Especially IPA lovers should give this beer a try! A light beer with character and a flavoured beer that doesn’t hurt me. Well done!

guzgorog (346) - FRANCE - NOV 25, 2014
Blonde légèrement orangée trouble, plate, pas de mousse. Nez de malts et d’agrumes (citron, mandarine). Légèrement sucrée, faible amertume, arômes de malts et de citron, légère astringence (le thé ?). Carbo moyenne. Bof, du bon marketing (la bière est belge !) pour une bière très moyenne ...

freretoc (865) - Besançon, FRANCE - NOV 18, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 33cl, offerte par Carlie chez ma mère, couleur blonde très pâle, peu de mousse effervescence moyenne. Une bière avec une attaque sucrée en début de bouche et une fin de bouche sur le citron.

Pours hazy yellow with a white head that disappears quickly. Taste has very noticable citrus with yeasty tones and high carbonation. An enjoyable fruit pilsener.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2014 330ml bottle poured in a Leffe chalice. A: First of all, nice bottle art. Makes you really think that it’s a Japanese beer. Pours a pale and quite hazy yellow color. A huge white bubbled head is formed whenever it’s poured. Good retention and a lot of lacings left S: Very spicy in the nose. You can feel wheat, yeasts and very citrus-grassy hops. Also orange zest (Yuzu, which is a sort of Japanese orange, is mentioned as part of the formula), honey and something unusual that I suppose is green tea T: Very distinct beer. Tastes is also very rich and spicy. Wheat, orange zest, honey, green tea, yeasts. In overall, a dry beer with very discreet sweetness. Very pleasant citrus hoppy bitterness M: Creamy, molasses and I would dare to say, a bit slimy mothfeel. Medium carbonation O: An original brew. Different from the other herb-spicy beers that I’ve had before [ BA Review @ 2/26/2012 ]

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Very pale, looks a bit childish. Smells discretely of cloves, citrus fruits and aroma hops. Sweet, but complex taste with overtones of green tea and subnotes of peach, fermented cabbage and white wine. This is too special for me, particularly the amount of tea in the aftertaste.
