This is my favorite beer. I have tried a lot of different lagers, but this one is the most refreshable and soft.

The most elegant beer bottle I have ever encountered. The element of green tea provides that hint of uniqueness to the aroma, but the taste is fine too. One of my favourite beers.

Very good beer, in fact one of the best I have tasted. Golden-yellow, citrus smell, slightly salty, fruity, slightly fizzy, highly refreshing, taste lingers for long!

Had a 12oz bottle "iki" in a sushi place in Taipei, Taiwan.
Appearance : Hazy, pale yellow color, with white foam head doesn’t last long.
Flavor: malts, citrus and some tea.
Smell : grain and somehow fruity.
Taste and mouthfel : Light bodied, very little bitterness, fruity (from the yuzu juice), elegant flavor from the sencha(Japanese green tea)
Drinkability : A perfect beer to pair with decent food, like sushi. I have to say I was not really into this beer at the beginning, however, the end of the night I had 4 bottles because it’s just perfect to pair with Japanese food. Good stuff!
Serving type: bottle

I’ve tried this beer in combination with japanese food. It’s a great beer with a crispy and refreshing taste. Thanks to the combination with green tea the taste is not bitter but a very powerfull twist.

Was thinking of making a homebrew with tea so had to try this one.
33cl bottle from supermarket. Cloudy yellowish orange, large soapy head.
Aroma of citrus, lemonade, sweet orange, mandarin and a faint tea-ishness.
Flavour is a nice balanced sweet and bitterness with hops, citrus and sweet orange. Simple but very refreshing. Seems as if the tea gives it a more full palate. Would be an awesome summer session beer if it was a bit cheaper.

A wheat beer tasting like green tea. It really does taste like green tea, alot. The aftertaste is dominated by the taste of green tea. If you love green tea you wil love this beer, but if you hate green tea stay away. Me? Ilike green tea.

This one surprised me positively. I expected it to be a nice try. Very tasty beer with good hops and surprisingly well fitting flavor of sweet green tea with a slice of sweet lemon.
