edpeg (892) - Berlin, - FEB 17, 2012
0,33l botle . Pours pale yellow murky cloudy with white thick head. Aromas citrus, wheat, fruits. Palate is medium full-bodied watery with smooth slick medium carbonation, texture mouthful. Taste has witbier kind of middle taste with wheat-like yeasty structure and bitter acidic finish in mouth. Green tea bitterness is somewhat distinct in the finish. Quite interesting and refreshing style, theres definitely some similarities with Belgian witbiers (see brewed by...), but the taste is more sweet in the finish. Green tea and yuzu flavours are nominal. Could drink this again.

DraftDodger (1219) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 29, 2016
Copenhagen 29/10 2016. 33 cl bottle from GoSushi. "Iki" printed directly on the bottle together with Japanese character which I expect means something profound in Japanese. Or maybe just "Green tea" which I understand is one of the ingrediets. Quite foamy when pouring making a mess. Pours hazy yellow with giant head. Settles as fat creamy 1 cm thick layer of foam. Massive lacing. Aroma is sour and sweet at the same time, herbal citrus, ginger and soya. Soft carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by artidicial herbal sour citrus. Aftertaste is sourish and short. They write on the label that the health aspects of this beer is maintained in the brewing process. And like all healthy things this beer does not really taste very good.

Manslow (1274) - Warsaw, POLAND - OCT 5, 2016
Butelka ze sklepu z orientalną żywnością. Kolor bursztynowy, mętny, piana mała, szybko znika. Aromat herbaty i bardzo orzeźwiającej cytryny, to samo w smaku. Średnie wysycenie, lekka cytrynowa goryczka. Przyjemne cytrusowe piwo.
