2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Draught at the Beer Belly.
A decent weizen, rather light in flavor but does what it is supposed to do, with bananas, cloves, etc. Well done, though not quite inspiring.
