Tap at Ushi-Tora, Tokyo. Murky yellow color, small steady white head, lace. Fresh green apple aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor has green apple acidity and fruitynes but with malty background so it is not ciderlike. Dry not sweet. Tolerable apple beer!

Ferris (5236) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Draft - Smells like a sweeter more acidic weizen. Cloudy yellow with a small head. Light and fruity, crisp with a weizen finish. The apples are not evident, but you can see how they have changed and added to the flavours of this beer. A decent refreshing light fruity beer.

dfearnley (1095) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 10, 2013
Draft to pint glass Yeasty sweet apple aroma, some fruity esters Cloudy amber with a 5mm white head. It tastes like it smells, a yeasty sweet apple, but there’s another artificial taste too which kills it.

Westkyoto77 (542) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 17, 2013
Draught at Bungalow. Pale yellow, tad fizzy. Aromas of apples, some delicate hops. Quite sour, a bit watery, but refreshing. Almost no aftertaste. Good as a starter beer, but then is move on to something more substantial.

Bottled (thanks Kim S.!). Very hazy yellow "pineapple squash" colour, small white head. Aroma is is not too much anything, just a mild tart sour apple thingy, but not strong at all. Flavour is yeast, apples, some malts, mild bitterness and alcohol as well. Interesting, but I think the half bottle is enough. Strange.
