willisread (388) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 15, 2015
330ml bottle from deguchiya in Tokyo. Pored in an English tulip pint. Pours a hazy deep yellow with a full banana cream head. Cinnamon, clove, peach and apple aroma. Nice carbonation. Body is a little thin. Nice wheat taste with a bit of green apple. Nice take on weizen.

jinroh (578) - ESTONIA - FEB 12, 2015
Pours pale, whitish, hazy but does not seem rich but quite thin. Foam top comes nice, stays for a bit. Aroma has wet wheat, cloves, banana. Usual weizen, not worse, not better. Taste has some enticing spicyness, cloves and body is fuller than it looks. Drinks well, good with sashimi. Good table weizen.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Draught at Devil Craft in Tokyo
Cloudy golden with a creamy white head. Lots of clove and banana in the nose and flavour. Pretty much just a solid hefeweizen.

TBone (13358) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2014
Can 330ml as Billiken Weizen (bought from Japan, BB 11/2014)
Hazy yellow color, smallish white head. Yeasty, clove spicey aroma with some banana. Light-bodied (light for this ABV). Yeasty and spicey flavor. Light tart citrus. Some banana too but a bit messy and not really refreshing or fruity. Probably better from bottle with yeast.

350 ml can thanks to Ingo! On May 24, 2014.
As "The Billiken Beer - Weizen", 5% ABV.
BB 2014-07-09.
The slightest bit hazy, straw yellow color, fluffy white head. Sweet, banana ester, some cheese scent. Spicy, clove, sweet, estery banana taste. Spicy aftertaste. Medium to a bit thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Decent take on the style.

Westkyoto77 (542) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 5, 2014
Can, as Billiken Beer. Rather tinny aromas of banana and bubblegum, but definitely a weizen. A little overcarbonated and a touch on the thin side, but I imagine that on tap this would be much creamier. Peach fuzz, a dash of spice. Not half bad.

Thisis12ptfont (931) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 11, 2014
On tap @ Beer Belly Edibori, Osaka. Aroma is peach, coriander, wheat and guava. Appears white with a pink hue. Taste is very very fruity peach, guava juice, strong wheat, fruit juice. Overall, very fruit forward, a bit much for me. Decent.

GenkiGonzo (481) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JAN 16, 2014
Draught at Bungalow. Cloudy straw colour, nice white head. Sweet banana aroma with some cloves. Very smooth taste, lots of sweet banana, some spice and wheat. Nice, but a little too sweet to drink a lot of it.

Draft to taster glass Classic Weizen banana and yeast aromatics. It’s amber, and it poured quite cloudy with no head. Straight up banana flavour, acidic and sweet.

tania_nexust (230) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2013
A pleasant weizen. However I prefer weizen to have full-on, banana and clove spice flavours, and the flavours in this were more muted. Not necessarily a bad interpretation of the style, and it had just the right amount of carbonation i.e. not too much, but just unfortunately not quite what I am looking for from a weizen as in it was a little too subtle for me.
