jinroh (2571) - ESTONIA - DEC 5, 2017
Can from my local Natural Lawson. Pours cloudy orange, not that much carbonation, hazy. Soft fruity and yeasty nose, some overripe pears and apple jam. Yeasty bananas. Tastes soft, sweet and has lots of bananas. Yeast spices are there, drinks quite easy and actually really liking this. Light fruity bitterness in the finish, still sweetish but not in unpleasant way. Liking this more than I thought I would, good and satisfying.

Scipio (1310) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2017
Pours a bright, very hazy golden with a thinner white head. The aroma finds wheat, spices, bubblegum, and banana. The taste is a little sweet. It consists of caramel, spices, banana, biscuit, and light orange. The aftertaste is a long and mild banana flavor. It's medium in body, with thin, sticky texture, and has some fizzy carbonation. It's rather easy to drink as well. Overall, quite tasty and refreshing.

citrus, herbs, banana, orange, cloudy, white foam, medium sweetness, medium body, lively. Nice banana bread aroma. Beautiful orange pour, thin white head. Nice wheat/citrus taste, perhaps a bit too sweet. Reminiscent of a boozy, liquid fruit cake (which sounds awful, but it works here). Not my particular cup of tea, but Ginga Kogen can do no wrong.

mrjez (752) - Osaka, JAPAN - APR 7, 2016
Can from Yamaya. Pours a cloudy deep orange-gold, like an apricot juice, big fluffy head that quickly goes. Light banana over a full wheat aroma. Smells sweet, minimal spice. Taste is wheaty, apricot, banana, a very light smoky note, kind of a bready malt. It feels pretty flat, creamy wheat, lingering fruity esters. It needs to pop a bit more, some fizz to liven it. Not bad, it coats the mouth and is quite full over time. Decent.

biirusaikou (2705) - - JAN 2, 2016
Bread, clove, green banana. Sweet creamy banana, caramel, cake, heavy mouthfeel, boozy notes, touch of spice, fairly sweet finish. This one grew on me so much I’ll need another one, these guys clearly know how to handle their wheat!

shoulderbroken (4256) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 20, 2015
Can. Sweet, banana, not much wheat, mostly sweetness, quite fruity. Cherry caramel. Alright. Had it straight from the can, so probably not the best situation.

3.4
KyotoLefty (10928) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 16, 2015
Can. Rich wheat nose, orange, apricot, banana, clove. Spicy, fruity, rich. Touch of smoke. Cloudy orange/gold, high head quickly falling. Rich, sweet wheat giscuts, creamy, cake, orange and banana. Nice stuff, barely a bock really, but nice enough. Could be better defined, though. It seems mostly like a slightly stronger and sweeter version of their regular weizen. Too sweet without huge character.

3.4
maekchu (4184) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 14, 2015
Can from local Yamaya store. Pleasant light banana nose, with some coriander. Cloudy unfiltered apple juice color, thin head, generous lace. Fresh and fruity initial, decent bittering to balance in mid palate, tails off somewhat in final. Medium body, a bit warming. Good, with little complexity. These guys should know how to make this style.

Picked up a [email protected] station. Only 6%, but GREAT Aroma...taste matches...creamy, smooth... bananas, bubble gum, spice...less sour than their other wheat beers. It might just be my standards lowering to meet my surroundings...but this is definitely not SHIT! Reminds me of slim jesus....
