mrjez (540) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 30, 2016
From can it pours a hazy yellow-orange, with a decent foamy head that settles after a few minutes. Aroma of spice and banana esters, slight bubblegum and wheat. Nice mellow banana and wheat flavour, quite peppery throughout. Has a kind of aspirin fizz where a more creamy feel wouldve been nice, quite light and dry, lingering flavour and spice.

35cl can from a beer shop in Kyoto. Pours hazy murky yellow with a white head. Fruity aroma with notable banana, some yeasty and wheaty notes and hints of spices. Moderate sweet with nice fruity flavours and a certain acidity. Tasty, balanced and refreshing!

jamaty (2036) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 4, 2015
La botella es sencillamente preciosa. Con aspecto de agua mineral premium con vidrio azul intenso. Ambar bonita, pero con mucha menor espuma de la esperada para el estilo. El aroma tiene fondo de weizen, aplatanada, pero es mucho ms cereal. La textura es perfecta en boca y el punto de gas tambin. En cuanto al sabor, no defrauda. En absoluto. Equilibrada, aunque deja predominar las maltas, con sabor de pltano, dulce, bastante dulce. Compensado con un final ms seco, algo achampanado. Buen ejemplar de weizen en Japn, demostrando otra vez que cuando hay trigo en la receta saben lo que se tienen entre manos.
