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.

labeerinthum (662) - 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 (1985) - 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 (305) - 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.

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.

Scores a little lower than Id have thought. A nice cloudy hef that balanced the bubble gum/banana clove well, with a touch of citrus.
