Scipio's rating

Thank you again to Chris for this rare gift. Pours a bright yellowish, hazy golden with a full, bubbly white head. Aroma is banana, orange, wheat, and spices. It has a very Belgian impression to it. The taste is similar to the aroma. The banana stands out the most, followed by the orange and spices. Short aftertaste of banana and spice. Some bubbly carbonation up front, but it seems to be more flat at the end. Light in body with a slick texture. It is refreshing to drink. I had this many years ago on a visit to Japan. I think I liked it more back then when I was more naive. However Im pleased to say that I think this is still very good.

10,1 oz beautiful blue bottle from Rakuya Kitchen in Dupont Circle. Washington D.C. Normally I?d reject a wheat beer simply on principle, but here they have things done perfectly. One of the best I?ve eve had. The restaurant is superb as well -- try the duck salad for something really different.
