2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
One last beer to relax with before bed... Tenjingura’s Weizen. 5%, bottle from the brewery for 410 yen-old school typography label. A cloudy honey gold, a touch darker than your average weizen-great thick head of foam though. The aroma is sweet, spicy, cloves & possibly a bit of pepperiness... & some subtle banana. Medium bodied, sweet, yeasty clove & mild banana notes, some butteriness. It’s nice but a bit too yeasty, another decent beer from Tenjingura.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewery. Creamy, banana and butter aroma. Too much butter. Same for the flavor diacetyl galore. Creamy and sweet bananas. Unbalanced.
