Tap at Pudel, Tallinn. Pours slightly hazy golden-amber with off-white head. The head stays for some time. Aroma is sweet, fruits, citrus, alcohol. Flavor is sweet and bitter, fruits, citrus, mango, grapefruit. Finish is long grapefruit bitter with some alcohol. Carbonation is rather high. Overall: nice and interesting brew. goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Big thanks to daijokey for this 2006 bottle. Poured a mildly hazy copper color with an off-white head. Mild-moderate sweetness with notes of apricots and some fusel alcohol. Semi-sweet flavor with the taste of browned fruits. Medium bodied. shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 9, 2012
Tap at Harajuku taproom. Slightly cloudy, light amber colour, small white bubbly head. Aroma is booze, quite sweet, bit of fruit there too but mostly booze. Maybe marzipan. Lots of alcohol. Taste is sweet, boozy, some caramel maltiness, but mostly booze. Bitter finish with a bit of a booze burn. Some Belgian hints. It’s ok, but the taste is way too booze dominated. Not much there apart from it. beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2007
2006 bottle shared by daijokey at JoeMcphee’s place for Captain Cougar comes to NY gathering. Well I was extremely happy to get a chance to try a Japanese Wheat Wine, thanks again Wayne. Pours with an orange color. Aroma is strong with raison alcohol and lightly spiced. Taste is actually rather subdued and light. Starts with cherry and raison alcohol. Finishes with alcohol spiciness and even some light esters. Some raison bread as well in there. A pretty nice beer overall.
hawthorne00 (3946) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle. Unclear amber with a cream head that lasts OK. Aroma of sweet bread, fudge, grapefruit, nectarines, pale sultanas, plums. Wouldn’t pick wheat. Not that heavy for around 10%, carbonation is lowish and very nice. Sweet and briochy with enough citrus, underripe plums and bitterness to lift much of it away at the end. A bit of a muddle, but a likeable one. gam (3924) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 13, 2010

Bottle from Asahiya. Big nose of caramel, citrus, alcohol, dark fruit, raisins, and sweet pears. Hazy copper color, thin around the edges, with almost no head. Flavors of dark fruit, orange marmalade, caramel, a bit of wheaty spiciness, and some citrus notes in the final. Somewhat dry finish. Medium-heavy body and very warming. Wheat is not so pronounced in this one. Very tasty. pintbypint (3640) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 12, 2011
633ml brown bottle. I see the date 2010 on the label, so I’m guessing that’s the vintage. Dark gold coloured brew, slight haze, medium sized foamy white cap. Displays nice lacing. Nose is full of wheat malt/cereal notes, light sweet notes from malts - caramel, possibly leaning even toward a light butterscotch, some orangey/citrus hops that are well placed. Flavour has caramel malt sweetness that is cut into by citrusy hops. Alcohol seems present but not obtrusive, coming in late. Aftertaste has wheat malts, a bit tangy, lingering hops which are quite grassy and and also citrusy in nature. Mouthfeel is pretty creamy, smooth, full bodied. Liking this quite a bit, but not loving it. Not sure why. suurjuust (3538) - ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2015
Tap. Amber beer, fluffy off-white head. Nose is wheaty notes with sweet malt and something that could be diacetyl. Flavor has less of the creamy diacetyl, a lot of sweetness. Can hardly find the wheat. Finish has more of toffee-like sweetness and malt plus harsh herbal hops. Lacks balance.
