Nocturne (2238) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Tap at Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Hazy yellow shade. White head. Orchard fruit notes. Easy on the weiss notes. Has a lightness, balance and delicacy that makes it very refreshing. Not my favourite style but clearly a very good example. Theis (15150) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 4, 2014

Light hazy straw yellow color, at first big white head, dies fairly fast. Banana and clove phenolic, sweet scent. Malty, sweet, phenolic, sugary taste. Sweet aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium bitterness.
With warming up turns more towards apple.
Bottle from Yamaoka. Light gold, cloudy colour, foamy white head. Sweet banana aroma with some wheat and yeast. Very fruity,not too sweet and nice wheat flavour. Nice carbonation. Excellent hefeweissbeir. minihame2 (788) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2013
Pale yellow, hazy colour with a frothy white head. Soft yeasty aroma with some citrus. Tastes very sweet and fruity. Soft mouthfeel, light carbonation. Very enjoyable for a weizen which I don’t usually care for that much.

Draught. Hazy light yellow, fine white head. Bubblegum nose. Fantastic mouthfeel - creamy and rounded yet not too marshmallowy. Enough banana flavour for me. Hint of spice in the finish. And absolute class act. biirusaikou (2705) - - SEP 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2014 Green banana nose. Banana cake, lemon, pepper, lovely creamy finish. Pretty smooth and enjoyable weizen, certainly one the top Japanese weizen. gyllenbock (10025) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
On tap at Popeye in August 2013.
Hazy golden with a medium white head. This was a rather typical Weizen with citrus, banana, some wheat and light spices. Soft and nicely drinkable in the hot summer in Tokyo. maekchu (4098) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 20, 2013
Draught at Qbrick. Superb banana and bubble gum mixed aroma. Cloudy honey color. Fresh and fruity, lemon and then sweet pears. Thin-medium body. Big, fairly intense and over-the-top weizen. Full of flavor. Great.
