Botella. golden brown colour with a big off-white head. Sweet aroma, wheaty rye spiced caramel, some fruit. Flavour is sweet with rye, spice, caramel, yeast, fruitish like. Very nice! biirusaikou (2705) - - APR 14, 2016
Sweet banana, clove, honey, egg tart. More or less the same on the palate, maybe a bit of rye, some smoke and pepper, earthy finish with a spicy edge. Not bad, but very wheat dominant, name was quite misleading to say the least. willisread (3342) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a slightl hazy brown with a finger of beige head. Banana bread, cloves and cinamon on the nose with some light pepper. Sweet on the palate with more banana bread really standing out. Toasted bread crust comes out on the palate. Finish has some peppery bitterness. Easy drinking. Nice original beer. jinroh (1597) - ESTONIA - APR 9, 2014
330 ml bottle from AEON Liquors @ Jiyugaoka. Rye beers are quite popular in Estonia, almost every new brewery tries to brew one these days. This one, however, was my first rye weizen. Poured cloudy and hazy, whitish orange with a nice top that stays. Looks like a weizen should look! Aroma reveals already the rye content of this beer - with usual banana and wheat you get also some black bread notes. Nice. It is nicely carbonated, cleans my palate well. A bit spicy, spritzy, really refreshening, having an extra bitter bite from rye I guess. This beer went down really well, even surprised me. Maybe I was thirsty also but this cold one really hit the spot. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 Bottle from Morioka Shinkansen station. Golden coloured, opaque, small white head with tiny bubbles. Aroma is fruity, banana, wheat, spicy, and bizarrely turnips! Taste is nice, initial weizen wheat and banana, finish is bitter though, bit of ice cream and biscuits in there too. Quite interesting.
Had it again today, 14/5/14. Don’t get the turnips this time but the rest still stands. Very nice beer!

I had seen this online and was meaning to try it so when I found a bottle at Yamaoka I picked it up! It poured a nice cloudy golden orange color with a thin head & a delicious fruity aroma of citrus, peach & spice. It also had yeast sediment which was nice. A nice full bodied ale with the rye giving it lots of spice flavors almost like a weizen but not quite as smooth. I really liked it. My wife and I drank it quickly, it hit the spot after a day at work! jonas (7573) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 24, 2012

Draft at The Aldgate (Tokyo), a cloudy pale amber with a super foamy ice-cream head. Fruity perfume on the nose. A creamy palate with berry fruit and raw grain. Dry and tart. Capa (3298) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Golden orange with a white head. Strong wheat ale notes in the aroma. banana, clove, sweet malts, candied malts, yeast. Very full mouth. Flavor is close to a wheat. Banana, malts, yeast, light spices, and just a hint of rye. A good beer, but disappointing if you wanted some rye flavors. Why are so many "rye" ales lacking rye characteristics? jonno (2761) - JAPAN - OCT 12, 2008
Who doesn’t love the trash zone? great pour...pure weizen with a bit of bitterness due to the rye,,my first time for the style so I am a bit of a novice but a nice twist on a weizen
