Bottle from souvenir shop in Hakodate. Light banana nose, some esters, and a light clove note. Lightly hazy (not really cloudy) gold/brown, moderate head. Thin sweetish wheat, banana, and gentle bitterness. Thin body. A bit watery for a weizen. Mild stuff.

5% Served in a weizen glass. This beer pours a cloudy gold with a big fat thick foamy head. It looks good, the last time I had this way back in 2002 or so when I got a set to go when leaving Hakodate it was in cool funky aluminium bottles, this time around it was a regular brown bottle picked up at Kyoto Isetan. A nice soft peppery clove and banana aroma. The beer has a medium body & a smooth mouthfeel. The taste is estery, a bit of sharp cloves, wheaty and light banana bread. Tasty stuff, while not great it is very solid.

Backlog, on tap during my visit to the brewery/restaurant in 2008. Straw colored, clear (no hefe?). Aroma’s: wheat, sour fruit, light hints of spices (clove?). Flavor is almost neutral, slightly fruity. Light bodied. Some malt/grain in the finish. Had better, had worse.

Can in [email protected] Just a very light German Hefeweizen. Refreshing but that’s about it.

thebeertourist (5188) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 13, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy golden with a creamy head. Fruity aroma with banana and subtle spices. Well~balanced banana flavours and spices. Body is slightly lighter than normal. A well~made weizen, nonetheless.

KyotoLefty (10721) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 13, 2008
On tap at the brewery, 2007. Light golden yellow Very cloudy. Medium tall, foamy, fine head. Very light color. Aroma: Strong banana, yeast, cloves. Quite fragrant. Very rich wheat malt.Taste: good malt. Banana, spices. Excellent body. Slightly sour, but not overboard at all. Excellent balance—a very good beer. Sweet and sour, yeasty, fruity finish.

MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2007
My Bottom Line:

Grassy blades salute fresh banana esters in the relentless cereal wind. The combined result is a jazzy, citrusy, spicy Weizen which is a fine pint to study or savor.



Further Personal Perceptions:

-A creamy head of foam settles atop the hazy yellow blond.

-The nose announces the flavor and the finish; this is fun throughout.

-The body is not as plump and cushiony as it could be, but it’s still a good weizen.

-Carbonation is comfortable.

-Gingery spiciness blends into the sweet and rather hoppy ending.

-Authentic and flavorful, this was my favorite pint at Hakodate Beer.
