Great aftertaste with a beautiful color and amazing nose. A unique combination of Japanese and Belgian styles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

My personal favorite. Bottle. Smooth. Excellent aroma. No bad aftertaste. Just wish it was more available around the Baton Rouge area.

This is a truly beautiful beer. It pours a hazy glowing gold-blonde with a one finger, aromatic head. It smells like fresh wheat, lemons, and a little malt. The taste is one of the most refreshing tastes I have ever experienced. Fresh lemons, sticky rice, malts, all in perfect balance. This may be the best summertime brew I have ever had.

Pours a lovely milky golden orange. Light, white head. Strong orange and coriander/ nutmeg on the nose. Bright, sweet orange and spice flavor. Spice lingers on the palate. Well balanced, curiously pleasant spice strength uncommon for a whit. Outstanding interpretation of the style.

Aroma is refreshing and light with hints of ginger. Minimal head and pale in color. Light body with moderate to heavy carbonation. Very refreshing. Stands out as very enjoyable.

This beer has a very satisfying taste. There are small hints of what I think is corriander. It has a very smooth body and finshes well. It has an almost undetectable aroma but taste is what is most important to me. My all time favorite beer.

Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 5, 2001
Hazy tan colour, really cool ceramic glass/mug (whatever you’d call it); heavy nose - damn! All kinds of aromas here: cardamom, citrus, noble hops. The palate brings all of these plus complex earthy malt notes - this is very stylish. Both assertive and mellow at the same time - flavourful but soft enough with the malts to carry this for miles.

Has a strong citrus aroma. the appearance is pale yellow and hazy. The head is minimal. The taste is light sweet . This beer is light bodied, with a thin texture. The carbonation is soft and the beer has a long finish. Overall I’am greatly impressed buy this white ale a great summertime brew! Good Job Kiuchi!
