eRock_2013 (469) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 30, 2014
I think this is my first legitimate craft beer from Japan, and it seems to be an unusual rendition of the hefeweizen style. A lighter but crisp aroma of wheat and banana and orange. The appearance is distinctive in that seems to be much lighter than usual for this style, almost more yellow than orange, and more transparent/ less substance than other hefe's. The flavor and palate is accordingly lighter, sweet wheat, malt, and banana-clove flavors. A bit strange overall, but I actually kind of enjoy this lighter, crisper example of the style. Finishes with a mild wheaty aftertaste. Definitely different, if nothing else.

rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2014
bottle. hazy golden with one finger head. lightly tart with a lightly tart, smoky element, almost like sausage or hot dogs. banana and clove are light, but presentl. just an odd take on a hefe that somehow seems to work.

stevoj (5036) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2014
This bottle seemed overly sweet, lots of the banana and bubblegum, but lacking in the bready flavors and a little weak in the body. Bottle may be a little old.
