On tap at Grillman Japan Craft Beer and Wine, Nagoya. Hazy golden to orange with a white head. Fruity, wheaty and yeasty aroma, as expected. Medium ripe bananas with some spicy notes. Moderate to medium sweet with quite nice wheaty flavours and a mild acididty. Fairly tasty and quite refreshing.

willisread (2455) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 13, 2015
On tap at Pub Edo in July 2014. Pale straw color with a foamy white head. Aromas of clove, banana, wheat and citrus. Has a kind of sour-like funkiness coming out as well. Taste is mostly wheat with banana. Fairly thin-bodied with an overly carbonated texture. Really just OK.

Wombata (620) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 30, 2014
Aroma: Smoky, hint of boiled egg (!), a bit stinky, lemon/white grapefruit, yeast, wheat. Palate: Light-bodied, firm carbonation. Flavor: Pear, wheat, lemon. Hint of banana on mid-palate that grows on the finish which is long and shows lemon all the flavors blended together. Comment: Some complexity.

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 15, 2014
On tap at Cafe Bar Hobbit. Fresh gentle banana nose with a bit of yeast. Light bright cloudy lemon juice color. Moderately tart initial / light fruity mid / final fades quickly, with a slight residual sweetness. Thin body. All very mild, limted flavor profile. Okay.

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - OCT 12, 2013
Tap at CBM Awajicho. Pale blonde colour, white creamy head. Aroma is clove, ultra spicy, bit weird, medicinal. Bit of grain, but totally dominated by the spice. Taste is lightly wheaty, little bit of banana and cream, but once again medicinal, like a muscle strain heat patch I would imagine. Very thin too. Where’s the body? Obviously I drank it, but it’s not very nice. I think swan lake are overrated.
