I believe this beer is also known as "Silver Bottle" when it is imported into the US in bottle form. Cloudy wheat color with good head. Really strong wheat and yeast scent/flavors with plenty of citrus. Some grain on the nose. Very mild spice, perhaps clove. A little smoother and thicker (yeast and wheat) than most most hefeweizen which usually have a bit more crispness. Enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2017 Köpt på burk i Tokyo. Grumlig, orange kulör med smutsvit skumkrona. Söt doft av vetemalt. Mediumsöt kropp. Smak av vetemalt och citrus.

35cl can in Shinjuku, expensive. Pours murky pale yellow color almost milky. Creamy white head, persistent. Aroma of wheat, flour, banana, pizza dough, light spice. Taste is balanced. Average carbonation light to medium body. Nice weizen from Japan.

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.
