COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The feature of this non-filtered wheat beer is its 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.

Marduk (6903) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 8, 2015
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy amber color. Small size, white head, cant hold. Sweet, very faint orange peel, yeasty, faint banana in aroma. Sweet, grainy, mild hops, but notable hops in taste. Hopping is very well done. Nice mellow crisp mouthfeel. Whole composition is quite refreshing. I like it. Good brew.

jookos (5986) - FINLAND - SEP 4, 2015
Bottle. Yellow, unfiltered hefe, but without much in-suspension yeast. Fruity, estery, bananas etc, but missing the deep phenolics, clove. Med lightish bodied, bit dull. Malted wheaty sweets, overall a bit boring though.

jamaty (2041) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
Pajiza turbia, apenas espuma. Raro en una weizen. Las dos cosas, el color y la espuma. Aroma a pltano. Cuerpo medio y bajo gas. Suave textura pero el sabor no convence, por empalagoso. Aunque el final es ms seco el predominio es claramente dulzn y frutal con el caracterstico pltano. Para mi gusto los toques especiados no logran compensar. An as merece ser catada.

Bottle: Pours hazy, light, slightly greenish-yellow with a small white head. Spicy banana, wheat aroma. Taste is grainy, wheat malt, banana... Not bad, but just a little too grainy.

johndoughty (5190) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2015
Bottle. Orange and very flat with no life.Slightly spcy but this doesnt make up for the poor appearance and lack of body. Saying that this a disappointment is understating it. Poor.
