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.

Une Hefe Weizen clairement pas au niveau dune Allemande qui se respecte.Elle se dfend cependant par son acidit originale, sa douceur plus discrte et la prpondrances des armes dagrumes (et dpices). Plus subtile quune pauvre Hoegaarden racoleuse mais pas assez clatante pour menthousiasmer plus que a.

Grzesiek79 (4223) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 6, 2014
Dosc dobre piwo ale delikatnie metne i ze srednia iloscia osadu. W smaku nieco przypominalo niemieckie pszeniczniaki ale nieco bylo lagodniejsze. Wyczulem pieczone banany, gozdziki i wanilie. Pod koniec piwo staje sie mniej slodowe a bardziej dziala ozezwiajaco, dochodzi cytrynowa skorka. Ogolnie smaczne ale nie powalalo, nawet w letnie upalne dni. Powiem szczerze ze po cenie spodziewalem sie sporo lepszego piwa.

jgb9348 (6044) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Super hazy blonde and straw coloured beer with an amber glow and a thin white head. Aroma of pale malt, alcohol, wheat, yeast, coriander seed and a hint of bubble gum - very nice smelling. Medium-bodied; Assertive wheat and yeast flavours showing a strong herbal and grassy flavour and mellowing out at the end with a definite banana and fruity flavour. Aftertaste shows some subdued corn and herbal characteristics and a nice smooth sweetness. Overall, a very nice german hef made in Japan, but sampled here in Hong Kong - definitely worth trying if you can find this! I sampled this stubby 333 mL bottle purchased from City!Super in Harbour City, Kowloon, Hong Kong on22-June-2014 for HK$29,00 sampled in my hotel room here in Wan Chai, Hong Kong. Best by date on bottle of 21-November-2014.

Bottle at America Strikes Back, Ulfborg. Pours murky pale amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of yeast, fruit, banana and rice. Sweet flavour of fruit and yeast, with subtle hoppy notes and malty touches. Sourish and sweetish aftertaste. OK but more ricey than a usual GH.
