Ritzn (530) - Bavaria, GERMANY - AUG 11, 2016
On tap at world beer summit nagoya 2016. Cloudy yellow with little white head. Aroma is sweet fruits, honey, mango, a little malt, that i cant specify. Taste is a subtle fresh sourness with lots of fruits in the finish, but not the typical IPA heavy kind of fruityness, everything is very light. Very enjoyable.

Cantabrian (990) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 19, 2016
I don’t particularly like the style, but this was pretty damn good. Looks spectacular, pure double cream on top, nice aroma and taste of bubble gum, a bit like the white (blue) 1664, and incredibly dense/creamy on the palate.

Nocturne (1859) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Tap at Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Hazy yellow. Fluffy white head. Grassy and dry. The spicing is very well done. Really adds to it without dominating proceedings. Citrussy tartness underpinning it. Seemed like quite a good take on the style.

Bottle. Aroma is creamy, herbal, citrus. Taste is smooth, vanilla ice cream, bit of lemon, bit of wheat. Fairly standard stuff, but nice enough.

sampled 2012 au Brau Beviale. Perfumed aroma, chamomile and coriander. Milky yellow, white head. Mellow smooth mouthfeel . Sweet perfumed, citric and almondy. Bit too spicy for me.

GenkiGonzo (1079) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 25, 2014
Draught from Bungalow. Straw colour, small wite head with some lacing. Zesty banana aroma, lots of spice comes through in the flavour. Pepperiess and sweetness balance out well. Very light.

GoufCustom (1654) - HONG KONG - JAN 22, 2014

330 ml bottle marketed as “Konishi Snow Blanche” bought at Sogo Fresh Mart in Causeway Bay.

Cloudy hazy golden honey colour with some yeast sediments; Three-quarter finger head and white foam which last for 1 minute; Very good lacing and notable small carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of light malt, with strong coriander, orange peel, yeast, grapefruit, light floral, very light cloves and spices; Light sweet and tart taste of light malt, with coriander, orange peels, light orange flesh, bread, yeast, very light cinnamon and spices, and faint lemon; Light body, watery and quite crisp palate; Mouth feel is very strong coriander, decent orange peel, fairly light tartness in a thin slick body, with a somewhat dull feeling, not all that bright and refreshing compares with other good Witbiers. Decent enough yeast and bready taste, spice tastes is a light touch. So-so… Hoppiness is in fairly light grapefruit nose and taste, no bitterness, just coriander and bready low tart finish; Fairly dry aftertaste, very easy and crisp to mouth.

Comments: This one got lots of coriander among Belgian Whites, and pretty damn solid in nose and appearance. Yet it is not lively enough to make a lasting impression. In short it lacks a spark, like good fresh citrus fruitiness, and a bit more sweetness will certainly help. Okay-ish middle of the pack.
