0,33l botle . Pours pale yellow murky cloudy with white thick head. Aromas citrus, wheat, fruits. Palate is medium full-bodied watery with smooth slick medium carbonation, texture mouthful. Taste has witbier kind of middle taste with wheat-like yeasty structure and bitter acidic finish in mouth. Green tea bitterness is somewhat distinct in the finish. Quite interesting and refreshing style, there’s definitely some similarities with Belgian witbiers (see brewed by...), but the taste is more sweet in the finish. Green tea and yuzu flavours are nominal. Could drink this again.

Looks and tastes like a fizzy pop. very cloudy orange colour, some foam, extremely cloudy. not too much on the nose, some orange notes, but nothing special. very watery, not great mouthfeel. Has some belgian notes but it’s way too light on alcohol for it to make sense.

Elle a le mérite d’être différente, mais c’est son seul mérite. Arrière goût quequette branlette. Goût de thé, elle n’as pas grand chose d’une bière

Weird aroma of nuts. Strange mixture of tastes with nothing that i can really make out. Disappears as soon as you swallow.

Silvan7 (772) - Samarate, ITALY - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle @ home. Giallo dorata, opalescente, schiuma bianca fine e persistente. Aroma poco intenso. Fruttato agrumato, maltato, floreale. Gusto abboccato, per nulla amaro, acidulo, sia per via del fruttato agrumato che della tipica acidità del thè. Carbonatazione finissima, lieve, corposa, abbastanza spigolosa. Poco equilibrata e poco armonica,

Cherry aroma at opening, but has some irritating aroma at the finish. Lager golden with nice white foam, the taste is overwhelmed by green tea with some faint citrus.

Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet fruit and tea. Light body, flavour of the aroma, lightly spiced.

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!
