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.

Bottle received chilled direct from the brewery. Pretty much what I was expecting, standard wheat beer. Unfortunately lacking in anything to make it stand out, but by no means bad, just no real wheat aromas and the taste is very subtle.

Scipio (989) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2017
Pours a clear, bright, yellowish golden with a thin white head. The aroma is rather subtle and evenly balanced, containing wheat, bread, banana, and lemon. Wheat and banana are the main impressions in the taste. Bread, mild spices, and hints of floral hops serve as compliments. Banana is found in a longer, weaker aftertaste. Lighter in body, with a smooth texture, and about average in carbonation. Not bad, though this one isnt very memorable.

Svesse (8359) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2017
(Bottle, Japanese Canteen, Bethnal Green, London, 25 Nov 2016) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, wheaty nose with notes of citrus, hay and bread. Malty, fruity taste with peaches, citrus, bread and grain. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Decently drinkable, but hardly exciting. Enjoyable.

blipp (8882) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 1, 2017
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 (773) - Milano, ITALY - JAN 11, 2017
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso riconosce il frumento. Lintensit olfattiva normale e la persistenza olfattiva sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma dalle bollicine medio-fini resiste poco. Lapparenza del liquido velata. Le bollicine sono fini. La carbonazione abbondante e vivace. Il colore giallo dorato brillante. Il corpo pieno. Il dolce medio e lamaro medio: non si surclassano. Lintensit gustativa normale e la persistenza gustativa sufficiente. Il gusto piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il finale pulito e dissetante. Il retrogusto di media intensit. Laroma in bocca riporta sentori di miele, pane, cereali, limone asprigno, banana e frumento.

kevinator (2171) - 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.

Funky aroma in a golden pour. Typically Belgian spicy fruity body but with a hop forward balance and crisp clean bitter finish.

AssKicker (410) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - SEP 7, 2016
Blonde claire assez trouble, et la mousse vite fuyante. Nez clairement sur le citron. Grosse carbo, ptet un peu trop grosse mme. Notes de citron, de levure, et de coriandre. Du coup a fait plus Witbier que Hefeweizen, mais globalement cest assez quelconque. Assez du aprs avoir super bien lik la Kyara de la mme brasserie.
