Draft at 2014 Fall Keyaki. North Island sampler. Straw yellow color with a nice white head. Wheat aromas with a huge vegetable/herbal head: coriander and cabbage. Wheat, banana and herbal tastes are present. Nice light, creamy mouthfeel. Slightly dry peppery finish...like arugula. Very refreshing and interesting beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Craft Beer Market Jimbocho. Big white fluffy head. Pale cloudy blond colour. Aroma lots of coriander, very herbal. Wheat too and some strangeness, but very pleasant strangeness. Taste is full on herbal, bit of banana, very creamy. Very dry, very nice and thirst quenching. Decent fruitiness, bit of strawberry, some lemon. Towards the end, coriander in the background, but still noticeable. Actually quite nice. Quite a strange cross between a Belgian and German wheat beer. All sorts of fruit flavours in there.
