Bottle (This beer is produced by Martens for Tokuoka Co, Ltd., which operates the "Marche" chain of stores in Japan. Mild molasses and a bit of lemon in the nose. Light cloudy pear juice color, thin skim of head. No flavors materialize until mid palate, when some light faux-Cointreau and coriander emerge / fades out with a bit of spirits and then nothing. Thin body. Pretty bad excuse for a witbier. Contains spirits and bitter orange oil and more adjuncts.
