Can from Kinokuniya. Pours cloudy yellow/white. Aroma is little bit yeasty, citrous and spicy. Taste is very refreshing. Citrous hops, coriander, milk texture. Some malt and wheat on the finish. jgb9348 (6586) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 31, 2011
Hazy golden coloured body with a very thin and fast-dying white head. Aroma of wheat, yeast, curacao, dough and a bit of funk. Medium-bodied; Great full mouthful with a lot of wheat and banana flavours coming through, a touch of clove and coriander seed and a little sweetness on the tail end from bubble gum. Aftertaste nice and refreshing with a little spices, but mostly sweet and bright flavours to show off. Overall, a nice beer for sure, great to sample and one for sure that if I didn’t know where it came from - I would have guessed Germany - a nice beer, especially for the country of origin and the style. I sampled this 300 mL bottle purchased at CitySuper! Grocery Store in Hong Kong (two IFC) on 10-August-2010 sampled at home on the other side of the world in Washington on 31-March-2011 - after the horrible events on 11-March-2011 in Japan - I figured I’d round out the month by drinking this in honour. Good luck to you Japan. Lagunitasfan (1323) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle from Matsuma (I think that’s the name of it) in San Diego. Didn’t really want to spend the 5 bucks on this 12 oz (or less) bottle, but now I’m glad I did. 1st of all, the bottle is beautiful. My wife wants to keep this one. Then the beer. Seriously thick haze in an orange-amber pour. Nose is lotsa yeasty citrus goodness. Cloves and white wine. Taste is lovely. Citrus/lemon and tart yeastiness. White wine and allspice. Ginger and apples. Really nice. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 2, 2011
Served from a 350 mL bottle from the Exchange. The appearance is a slightly hazy pale white grape hue. The aromas are light with yeast and wheat. The flavors are similar with some light clove hints. With a bit of a cold I may be missing a bit here but an ok hefeweizen.

shared by Kyotolefty via Jay - nice bready arouma. Smooth bodied with some nice funk. Not bad, but a little old tasting. jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 16, 2010
10.1oz bottle in a shaker. Pours hazy golden with a foamy but quickly fading white head. Aroma of a roasted malts and the light citrus notes from the wheat. Flavor of the citrus and light malts with a toasted/smoky flavor at the end. Average texture. A unique beer, but not the bets of its class. Tmoney99 (15126) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber hue with an average fizzy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Good wheat and banana aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Average well balanced sweet wheat flavor with a good sweet finish of short to moderate duration. Good soft drinkable beer. CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2010
(500ml blue bottle) Nose is like an over citrus pale lager. Slight oxidation. Kind of like a bad home brew with a smooth lactic, wet wheat, grainy finish. Watery and bland. Past its BBD?

Cool blue bottle is definitely an attention getter on this beer. Had this at a Sushi rest in DC. The sweetness of the wheat really brought out tremendous malt flavors. Very fresh sample.
