COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The feature of this non-filtered wheat beer is it’s bright, smooth, slightly cloudy appearance. Through the use of wheat malt and specially chosen yeasts, this refreshing brew with fruity overtones, boasts a full bodied, yet smooth texture, which glides easily down the throat. With its distinctly individual flavor and smooth elegance, it has been named "shiro," meaning white.

Bottle. Pours hazed gold with a white head. Relatively mild throughout, with some fruity yeast, very mild spice, and a touch of sweetness in the finish. Fine.

labeerinthum (891) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 11, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso riconosce il frumento. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma dalle bollicine medio-fini resiste poco. L’apparenza del liquido è velata. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione è abbondante e vivace. Il colore è giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo è pieno. Il dolce è medio e l’amaro è medio: non si surclassano. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale è pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto è di media intensità. L’aroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, pane, cereali, limone asprigno, banana e frumento.

kevinator (2268) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Aromas were faint of wheat and citrus. Typical cloudy yellow with a big head. Medium palate with decent carbonation. Flavor was pretty traditional with a nice hint of spice.

beer-yum (1760) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 8, 2016
Funky aroma in a golden pour. Typically Belgian spicy fruity body but with a hop forward balance and crisp clean bitter finish.

AssKicker (526) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - SEP 7, 2016
Blonde claire assez trouble, et à la mousse vite fuyante. Nez clairement sur le citron. Grosse carbo, p’tet un peu trop grosse même. Notes de citron, de levure, et de coriandre. Du coup ça fait plus Witbier que Hefeweizen, mais globalement c’est assez quelconque. Assez déçu après avoir super bien liké la Kyara de la même brasserie.

phfyysik (1297) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUL 20, 2016
Pours hazy yellow with small head. Aroma is fruity, yeast, watermelon, banana, some flour, grapefruit. Taste is bitter fruits, citrus, grapefruit, banana, some yeast, a bit flour. Very good beer!

jmgreenuk (9527) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JUL 10, 2016
Tap at Craft Sukhumvit, Bangkok. Poured a murky straw colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is light banana, grain, citrus. The flavour is light acid citrus with a smooth light floral, grainy mineral, light fruit palate. Medium to light bodied with soft carbonation.

3.3
slowrunner77 (12133) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Scores a little lower than I’d have thought. A nice cloudy hef that balanced the bubble gum/banana clove well, with a touch of citrus.

Bottle. A- Lemon, spices, wheat, subtle banana. A- Golden color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Lemon, spices, wheat, subtle banana, subtle bubblegum.

Hazy copper colour with zero head. Served with a lemon at a bao restaurant in Paris. Over carbonated. Artificial sweetness.
