Tap at PP OB, tulip. Murky dark straw with a one finger white head, creamy with pretty good retention. Flavor mainly tastes like a German hefe, fruity bananas and some clove spiciness pretty apparent. Maybe a little coriander, but maybe I convinced myself of that. Still has the old wet wheat character I get from wheat beers brewed overseas. Wheaty finish, semi-dry, scant bitterness. Never got sweet at all, but perceived from the fruity esters. Aroma was much the same, but more banana and less spicy. Low to moderate smooth carbonation, medium body. Doesn’t seem much like a wit to me, but still good. 7-4-7-4-15--3.7

Jak dla mnie calkiem przyjemne piwo. Piekna i trwale wogole nie opadajaca piana. Jasno zlocisty kolor, chuczne otwarcie korka firmowego. Do tego mocne zmetnienie do zmiany koloru az na zgnilo zielonu. W zapachu fiolki i maki. Lakow warstwa zapachowa. Piwo tresciwe ale lekkie mimo to. Przyjemne deguustacyjne i napewno prestizowe. Butelkowane: 3 February 2012. Polecam

ajnepple (1676) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - FEB 13, 2014
750 ml (corked and caged) bottled over 2 years ago from Evergreen Discount into my NBB globe glass. The cork blasted off and hit the high ceiling. Orange and pretty clear with a lasting white head, moderate lacing. Aroma of wheat, sweet malts, orange peel, coriander, lemons, herbs, pepper and light spice. Similar flavor, medium malt sweetness and light hop bitterness. Average body, a little thin, with dull carbonation. This one is probably way past its prime.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Appearance: Cork comes off with an audible pop, verging on being airborne but my thumb stops it from putting a dent in the ceiling. Pours like liquid golden bread under a voluminous fluffy white head which fades slowly into a patchy layer while leaving acres of lace in its wake. Slow stream of bubbles keep the head thick from first quaff to last.
Nose: Fields of grains waving in a gentle spring breeze while off in the distance bales of hay bake in the sun. Orange and lemon slices in the back. Yeasty doughy orangey spiciness in the middle. Faint candied sugar notes. Pressed green grapes in the back and middle. Whispers of funk and barnyard dust.
Palate: Freshly peeled juicy oranges and lemons followed by grapefruit. Husked grains and green banana peel along the sides. Musk and pulped green grapes in the back. Rindy spicy finish which highlights coriander and grains of paradise. Whisper of tropical fruits in the front with grape vineyards in the back. Bread crusts underneath. Candied ginger in the middle. Soft blanched chamois.
Final Thoughts: St. Bernardus Brouwerij never disappoints and their newest addition, Tokyo, is no exception. A fabulous rustic example of a Belgian White that is just as good as the traditional St. Bernardus Wit. Hopefully they will release this beer again so I can buy a case.

MrHangover (2142) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2013
Bottle @ Deans pale lager tasting, courtesy of allesmetkaas. Pours a clear, light amber beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma is funky, wheaty, fruity and quite yeasty. Flavor is light sweet, quite watery mouthfeel and a touch of lemon in the aftertaste. Some coriander present. Could be better, but it was quite an old bottle..
