750 ml right now and also had on draft back when it was released. (Forgotten about bottle in my cellar) The bottle obviously doesn’t fair as well. Cloudy gold with lots of bubbly carbonation. Aroma shows me moderate Belgian yeast with a zesty character, light floral ness, with light clove. The flavor has dried flowers with a strong chewy yeast presence. Grain and pepper round out the flavor. It clearly has some oxidation in the flavor and I really didn’t intend to hold it this amount of time. That said, still rather drinkable.

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.

Golden with a creamy white head. Aroma is bread, coriander, honey, candi sugar, Belgian yeast. Medium bodied, sweet on the palate. Flavour is wheat, coriander, orange peel, Belgian yeast, heather honey. Delicious. Wish I hadn't spilled half my cup.
