2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (flowers), moderately yeasty (basement/cement), with notes of pepper, banana, apple, cotton candy, and alcohol.
Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, fizzy/lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic.
I have never liked the St. Bernardus yeast, being very much like damp basement/cement, and this is chock full ío that. Add in the cotton candy and apple notes, and this just isnít enticing at all to my nose...pepper and toasty malt are pretty much the only good points. Sweet and more boozy than the 6% would suggest. Not a fan, and Iím also confused why this is considered a witbier since it doesnít seem to have any characteristics of that style (other than being vaguely Belgian-styled). *shrug*

May 3rd, 2013 - The Tokyo Watou combines all of my favorite things - Japan and Belgian brews. The bottle and label make excellent shelf decor, but the beer itself is a bit of a let down. Like the regular pure-Belgian Watou, the body is hazy and straw gold, with a thick, white corky top. The aroma is hard to pry from the surface, but the taste is light and sweet. The semi-fruity flavor of yeast blends with the rich base of cracked wheat is good, true, but not deep or complex. In that sense, it is a let down, but only because by design it combines so many of my favorite things.

"Different hips than the Blanche, but very much still a wit beer. Orange and. Oriander present as a soft citrus aroma and flavor. Nice hopping for the style and a light refreshing palate."

Ik drink al niet heel graag witbieren, er zijn er goede bij, maar dit is er niet bij. Ik vond het niet zo goed.
