Bottle bought from the brewery and shipped within Japan. Now styled is English as Fujzakura Heights Beer. Unspiced, not massively chewy and not much yeast-borne banana but the most authentic tasting Weizenbier I can recall outside Bavaria. beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2010
Pours a hazy yellow color with a medium white head. Appealing aroma of bananas, yeast and cloves. Very good flavor of bananas, cloves and yeast. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation. This is a weizen done right. mabel (10004) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 6, 2009
[2220-20090605] Sample. Fresh banana wheat and mild cardboard aroma. Hazy, light orange body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Mild petrol and fresh wheaty fruit yeast. Medium body. Fresh and good.

Mondial 2009. THanks to Dany for the reccomendation. Solid Hefe. Pours a nice very light golden- hazy and a nice foamy soapy head. Aroma is phenolic, light soap, lemon zest, peppery, modest clove- ok fruity esters, banana, and doughy wheat. Flavor is spritzy with lemon, lime hints, toasted malts, wheat, dough, phenolic spices, and good fruity esters banana- clove hints of vanilla, but seems a bit on the thin side as it warms up and the yeast itself doens tplay as much of a role in the body. Pretty solid though and very well made. Nice stuff. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 15, 2009
In short: My greatest most best favourite hefeweizen? Probably.

How: From the bottle at Montreal Mondial de la Bière 2009 (many samples)
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a medium off-white head
In long: The intriguing nose mixes banana cake, lemon and a really nice wilderness (almost Saison-like wild). Fantastic cushiony body. A lot of wheat, a big fluffy cake, a wild character that sneaks in, good astringency without being acidic, very big body without apparent malt sweetness, leafy and grassy hops dry out the beer with very little bitterness. Of course not the most tasty beer (it’s an hefe after-all) but there are very few beers I would like to drink in larger quantities than this one. I went back many times to get more samples. In a beer festival (Mondial de la Bière 2009) with all my favourite styles well represented I really didn’t expect a hefeweizen come out as my #1 beer of the festival. Nor did I expect to come out sober enough to stand on my feet. I was surprised once.

2009-06-05. Golden/pastel yellow with a nice foamy white head. Pleasant aroma, sweet wheat and esters. (7+) Flavour is likewise, pleasant wheat with mild esters. A very simple straightforward wheat beer but ultra drinkable. Average palate suits the beer. Really enjoyed it.

Bottle @ Mondial 2009.
Great wheat nose, spice, yeast and a trace of banana, light hazy yellow, pours a large billowy, long lasting white head. Taste is a milder wheat, malt, corriander, and banana. Light bodied, balanced and refreshing. Really good offering. omhper (25943) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2009
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy yellow, rich lively head. Strong estery banana/bandaid aroma. Sweetish with medium body, soft and very drinkable. Light and cottony with a whiff of citrus. A remarkable weizen! thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 19, 2009
On tap at Ushi-Tora. Cloudy pale yellow with a good head. Harmonious banana and spice aromas and flavours. Some clove. Well-made.
