3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Tanakaya, Meijiro, Tokyo. Clear very pale amber, medium white head which dissipates to nothing. Nose is little sulphurous, very strong estery fruit, banana, lemon, spice, bread. Very clean but very full flavours. Taste is fruity, light banana, lemon, bread, clove, slight creaminess but it’s very light. Possibly a shade too watery but a really nice weizen.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Strong aromas of citrus and banana, some spice. Almost like a sour fruit juice since the carbonation was so weak. Was a little too unbalanced and harsh for my taste, but slid down my throat at the Gion Festival nicely.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light gold colour, small white head. Aroma is little bit spicy, just a touch of banana, wheaty. Taste is nice, quite subtle, grainy, little bit fruity too, berries, bit tropical. Nice dry and crisp, slightly biter finish. Different from how I was expecting, and very drinkable.

Draught at Beer Republic. Pale gold, tall, fine head. Lightly cloudy. Aroma of banana, clove, lemon, wheat and grains. Light malt flavor, clove, pepper, citrus. Clean and rather lean. Not much happening, but drinkable and refreshing, and better as it warmed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick white head. Clovely banana nose, but lacks body. Despite this, the rest is well done so it just ends up making it dangerously drinkable, but too light for the style.
