bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw colour with largish rocky white head. Aromas of wheat malt, coriander and a little ginger. Perhaps a little citrus also. Flavour is initially slightly sweet and sour befor the spices start to come through. Once again plenty of coraiander and ginger. Mouthfeel is a little thin but overall a nice beer.

bluevegie (3073) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2010
Straw coloured body with short lasting head. Noticed ginger first up in both aroma and taste, replaced by lemon notes and the coriander and nutmeg in the aroma. The taste was more coriander and nutmeg, slight sourness, low in carbonation, thin, with some sweetness on the finish.

Bassikpoet (93) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy yellow with a thick loose white head that slowly fades away. Smells of orange with a hint of spruce, but there is something just a little off. its as if the vat was cleaned with lysol and it made its way into the batch. Tastes spicy and clean with a smooth sweetness rounded out by a hint of bitterness. I definitely smell the coriander more when I drink it.

StormCoat (123) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 22, 2010
Hazy yellow pour, with almost no head, and a bright citrus aroma. Hitachino Nest White Ale is light-bodied, with a very pronounced lemon taste; its light and refreshing, and stops just short of being too sour. A nice one overall, and I would certainly drink this again, although I think I dont find it to be quite as interesting as Hitachinos Red Rice Ale.

on tap at Haven Gastropub in Orange, CA opaque yellow pour with a white head, this beer was lemony, grassy, herbal/medicinal, and underwhelming.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Lemony and yeasty - pretty sour - tasty. When I drink a wit, I want it to either be really easy to drink or somewhat sweet and with a depth of flavor. This beer isnt quite either of those things.

Strykzone (7018) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 27, 2010
Beer tasting at The Stable. Appearance and aroma are akin to a hefe. That aroma is delightful. Flavor was quite sour. Orange notes and some yeast. Still, too sour for me.

Bottle at Yamamori, Dublin. Pretty cute cool bottle. Light citrus aroma, Hoegarden-esque wheat beer taste. Nicely balanced and finishes very well. Accompanied the sushi nicely!

flatmatt (1520) - Northville, Michigan, USA - FEB 1, 2010
330 mL bottle, picked it up since it was on sale. Pours completely hazed golden with a white head. Aroma has lots of spice, heavy on nutmeg, ginger, and clove with lemon coming in afterward. Ginger and nutmeg also lead the flavor as well, so much as to give me a distinct egg nog impression. Some citrusy lemon and orange zest come into play as well, with vague hints of coriander and cloves. Certainly a very interesting witbier.
