3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Uncleargolden colour with a green shade to it. Big white foam
Aroma of fresh peas, asparagus and a hint of citrus.
Flavour is also very vegetable, with asparagus as the main component. A touch of lemon in the aftertaste. It got a good carbonation, medium body that´s alittle on the sweet side.
Summary: An interesting beer, with a special taste. Superb with a green salad!

10th March 2011
With some Sushi at a Japanese restaurant in Amsterdam. Very hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Dry pale malt with just hint of green tea. Similarly just a hint of citrus in the dry finish. Goes well with food but why so apologetic with the flavour? Turn up the Green Tea and Yuzu. Maybe we could have Imperial Iki?

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Iki has a nice hazy yellow/amber body with an average, mostly diminishing white head, and even a decent amount of lacing. A hefeweizen type aroma with citrus, spices and perfume (and do I detect a whiff of honey?). Sweet taste, with a dominating refreshing flavour of citrus, and deep down some tea. The only bad thing about this brew is that the very fizzy carbonation makes the beer really foamy in your mouth.

Behind the appearance of a Japanese origin, this is actually a Belgian beer... made with green tea... original... that’s it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a cloudy light yellow with a decent sized white head. Big bubbly head that recedes to a thin coat in a matter of seconds. Little lacing, almost non-existent. Looks like a typical Belgian Wit.
Spicy nose. Mostly peppery in the spice department. Little bit of green tea scent. And something a little on the foul side, not sure what it is - almost like a spoiled cream. A little malt in the nose. Musty wood.
Tastes like Arizona green tea watered down with a weak lager. Although it looks and tastes more like a bad wit instead of a lager.
Thin, acrid. Carbonation makes it a little bit acidic. Not impressive.
Easy to drink and the off-aromas and flavors don’t linger around too long. Quite bland if you don’t think about the slight offness.

17-jan-2011, bottle at Utrecht based Japanese restaurant. In the restaurant I thought this was a real Japanese beer, but it appears to be brewed in Belgium... Hazy pale yellow beer with white head. Spicy aroma, with hints of citrus (reminded me of hefeweizen). Taste is pretty sweet, and perhaps a little unbalanced. I quite enjoyed it though.
