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.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - MAR 19, 2012
Bottle, cloudy yellow-orange color, with a little head. Aroma is dry grain and crisp hops, some sweetness (a little banana-like) and yeast also. Flavor is the same, both sweet and dry at the same time. Pretty good overall.

douglas88 (9789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Bottle from John's. Pours a clear orange hue with a large white head. A big banana yeasty toasted malt nose. Light pils malt, toast, lemon, some banana esters. Quite smooth.

Tap at Pudel. Clear golden, white fluffy head. Aroma is sweet wheaty, grainy, mild banana. Taste is wheaty, light, sweet malty, corny. Wheaty banana aftertaste. Light bodied, lively carbo. So clear, taste is simple.

gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 4, 2017
On tap at Cuedo, Hong Kong. Hazy yellow with a white head. Sweet with yeast, light banana and some spices. A bit thin. Nothing special.

melush (4957) - SPAIN - NOV 1, 2017
33cl Bottle @ Hiper Oriente, Seville, Spain Hazy golden colour with a medium size white head. Aroma is wheat, malt, banana. Taste is wheat, malt, banana, sweet, yeast, citrus. Medium body, average carbonation.

josanguapo (2037) - SPAIN - OCT 23, 2017
From Hiper Oriente. In Bavaria hefe glass. Playing Space Pilgrim Episode 4. Typical hefe very well executed in all aspects, just less foamy than usual but feels good. A pity its price (2.85€) and short size (33cl)

crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2017
Draft. ightly hazed yellow pour. This doesn't resemble a hefeweizen in the least, very thin, no creamy body, a touch oxidized on draft, not great.

JFF (267) - - AUG 19, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2017 Arômes de blé mouillé. Robe jaunâtre claire. Mousse blanche minimaliste. Petit goût sucré, coriandre.

mcberko (19808) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2017
On tap at CRAFT Sukhumvit, pours a cloudy golden yellow with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out coriander, citrus and some biscuity malt. Flavour is earthy and a bit cardboardy, with light citrus and a hint of spice. Something seems off here - seems stale and old.

sir__v (2630) - FRANCE - JUL 16, 2017
Bottle from ??? - Color: hazy pale blond beer with small carbonation and medium white foam. Smell: wheat malt, sweet bread and hefe weizen yeast. Taste: medium body with wheat domination, fresh and drinkable. Floral notes. Aftertaste: floral and sweet bitterness.

the_beergery (177) - - JUN 20, 2017
Poured from a 333 ml bottle, it appears a hazy unfiltered golden colour with plenty of white froth. The aromas detected are typical for a wheat ale, earthy and yeasty, bread and dough. Flavours are again typical of a hefeweizen, sweet malts with subtle hints of spices and fruits in the mix. golden, Light, refreshing brew for the weather!
