mrjez (508) - Osaka, JAPAN - NOV 22, 2016
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow-gold, finger of nice white foam. Really mellow spicy ester aroma, toasty malt. Minerally flavour, banana, wheat, a hint of toasted marshmallow. Very dry compared to most weizens, light peppery finish. Prickly carbonation, medium body, moderate bitterness. Lacks the fullness of flavour they usually offer, but goes down ok.

After far too long, Ive finally gotten around to some Hitachino Nest beer. This is a unique Weizen, for sure. Dark yellow pour with two fingers of foam. Honey, bread, and potent clove on the nose. Flavors of cream, subtle fruit, spice, light citrus, and candy-like malt. This ones definitely sweet. It tastes fuller than its modest ABV. Hopefully this is my first of many from Hitachino.
