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! Travlr (25250) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2013

50 cl bottle at a tasting on October 30, 2013 (backlog). Thanks to Ingo!jercraigs (10591) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2009
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.
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 at Mondial 2009, Montreal KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 24, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2008 Rich, thick wheat malt. Like a cake with banana cream frosting. Beautiful to look at, killer nose. No defects. I prefer a slightly less sweet weizen, but this was close to perfect. MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
My Bottom Line:gyllenbock (9313) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2013
Heavenly bananas top the angelfood cake, as doughy yeast is succulently emboldened into a whipped cream in this world-class Hefeweizen. Vanilla ice cream surfs the soft bubbling, and drinkability and nourishment are amazingly joined.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-An everlasting head of foam protects the cloudy, shiny blond golden.
-The nose and mouthfeel are supremely expressive and laid back at once.
-The soft bubbling lets the expertly extracted maltiness express itself.
-This one was the winner of a Hefeweizen face-off we did at Popeye’s, against two other very tasty examples of the style in Hidatakayama Weizen and Hakusekikan Niwa-Weiss.
On tap at the brewery restaurant and at Popeye’s.
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.
