3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

350 ml can thanks to Ingo! On May 24, 2014.
As "The Billiken Beer - Weizen", 5% ABV.
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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

Lovely green banana aroma. Deep banana flavor, apple tart. Very well rounded Weizen, a wonderful Minoh classic.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’ve had this several times and it is a solid weizen made in Osaka. You’re typical cloudy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Mild spicy sweet aroma and a light refreshing spicy weizen taste. Pretty average but nice.
