COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
ウィートワインは1980年代にアメリカで誕生したとされるビールのスタイルで、その発想の基になっているのは「バーレイワイン」です。
バーレイワインとの違いは主原料。バーレイワインはバーレイ(Barley/大麦)つまり“大麦麦芽”を主原料としているのに対し、ウィートワインはウィート(Wheat/小麦)つまり“小麦麦芽”を主原料としています。
小麦は大麦よりもたんぱく質が多いため、バーレイワインに比べ 口当たりが柔らかく、まろやかな印象。またビールの苦味の元になるホップ使用量も控えめ。そのため、ホップの鮮烈な苦味が印象的な“悪魔(ディアブロ)”に対し、麦の優しい味わいを楽しむ“天使(アンヘル)”という位置づけです。
ビールでありながらワイン並にアルコールが高く、ワインのように月日を経て熟成していく点はバーレイワインと共通しています。

使用麦芽: ホワイトウィートモルト、ペールエールモルト、クリスタルモルト
使用ホップ コロンバス、HBC342、カスケード

KansaiBeerLvrs (2086) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle from the brewery via rakuten I believe. 2013 bottle, OG 1.092, IBU 55, Hops: Nugget, Cascade, HBC 342. Served in a snifter and shared with my angelic wife. A very dark ruby brown with a good 1 cm head of beige foam that slowly faded away leaving some clinging to the side of the glass. Really rich malty aroma of pitted fruit, figs, peaches, plums - delicious sweet fruitiness. Medium to full bodied with a dry finish. The taste is surprisingly bitter... well rather bittersweet. You get that fruity malty hit at first then it fades into a lingering lightly bitter finish. Once it starts warming up you get more caramel, some spiciness, a bit of sherry like notes. I am not a big expert in wheat wines but this is quite good.

Draft to plastic cup. :( (Lezzet Osaka 1st year anniversary) 2012 Lychee and blood orange sweetness and a touch of alcohol, after it warmed up, I got rotting apple and yeast as well. Clear amber with a thin white head. The lychee and orange come through nicely with the addition of grapefruit. 2013 Candied fruit, still lychee and orange and an earthy spice. Clear amber with a thin white head. The taste is grapefruit and orange. A bit stronger than the 2012.

Ferris (4342) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Draft - Vintage 2012 - Sweet lychee, perfume and booze. Clear orange with a thin head. Candied orange, almost hoppy citrus and a tiny bit of booze with a long finish. Vintage 2013 - Candy orange and tropical fruit. Deep clear copper with a thin beige head. Wheat, mandarin orange and a grainy bitterness.

MartinT (7860) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This aromatic Wheat Wine displays kiwis and oranges within honeyed cereals before moving into coniferous hop bitterness and relative dryness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the misty amber shine.
-The resinous bitterness is long lasting.
-The tropical fruit nose is amazingly reminiscent of kiwi juice.
-This is one memorable Wheat Wine that does not try to emulate any other beer in its style category. Good job !
-Extra kudos for brewing a strong ale worthy of such a memorable bottle.

On tap at Watering Hole.

shoulderbroken (2062) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 2, 2013
Tap at Craft Beer Market Toranomon. Had to drink this quickly as it took a while to come and we were about to leave. Maybe where the night started to go a bit off-track for me! Golden coloured, small head. Aroma is booze, apples, in fact apple friitters, marzipan. Taste surprisingly easy drinking, apple again, not a hint of booze in the taste. Bit of sweetness. Smooth.

dark amber color. Soft hoppy nose of Pears, cherries and mandarins oranges. Very soft hoppy mouth, a touch of bread, apples, pears and cherries. Smooth and rounded. Hops are very mellow. So nicely put together .

maekchu (2160) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 29, 2012
Draught at Lezzet. Unusual fresh ume (plum) juice aroma, tsukemono (pickles), and a persistent heavy phenolic aroma. Nice copper color, no head. Rotten oranges, some zest in initial; bittering kicks in; final has a long bitter trail. Thin-medium body. Maybe too fresh. Would like to try this one in a year or so; the pub manager has another keg which she said she’ll hold for aging. The phenolic character is a bit distracting; can’t detect the wheat at all. Interesting stuff, but it needs to age a bit. More of a young, dirty devil at this point than an angel.

KyotoLefty (6504) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 7, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2012 Draught at Molto. Ruch amber-orange with lace. Estery nose, sweet orange, peach, grape must. Rich sweet fruity flavor, melon, some banana, grape, orange, honey. Slightly phenolic. Good fruit with a nicely bitter finish. Full and smooth palate. Good stuff, and more approachable than fresh Diablo. Less complex and more phenolic the second time I had it. Why?...was it me?

A nice way to end a day with a special person. You weren’t with me physically, but enjoyed our trip down memory lane together. Pours nearly flat as a tack. Big American BW nose - Citrus, pine, caramel and OJ. Very smooth and easy drinking. Orange peel, zest, wheat and a sweet dry finish. Not overtly complex but way to easy to drink for 9.5%. Great packaging too. Cheers Rie.
