2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Biggish white head quickly shrinks with a fizzing sound. Hazy
opaque golden body. Fruity mealy aroma with earthy sugary pea
notes. Sweet-acidic earthy fruity taste with mealy notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish-acidic unclean fruity mealy
aftertaste. Yuk. This was awful. (0.33l bottle, from a shop in
Sendai, Japan. Rerate, if possible.)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from an omiyage shop near Matsushima. Drank from the bottle. Clove, banana nose. Sweet with good zesty tartness on the finish. Pretty simple weizen but nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2016 Poured into a shaker showing opaque honey with no head.
The nose shows a traditional weizen profile of banana and bubble gum.
The palate is light bodied and moderately carbonated. Flavors of banana in the background and a moderate sweetness with a slight zest on the finish. A basic Hefeweizen that doesn’t stray from tradition.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Kyoto Isetan. 5.5% served in a weizen glass it is a cloudy light gold with a decent foamy head. Spicy, cloves and buttery aroma - a warning sign? Light zesty mouthfeel, too watery. The taste is heavy spices and light butterscotch. Not bad minus that buttery quality this would be ok, it shows potential.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Craft Beer Festival in Ichinoseki, 2011. Cloudy, murky orange-gold color with a foamy, fine head. Slightly acidic nose, creamy, with banana and wheat. Very tangy flavor with banana and lemon. Creamy and sweet. OK, but not so interesting or well-done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
250 mL can (thanks IslandHaole!): murky pale yellow. Diminishing ivory film. Wheaty grain and rye aromatics. Sweet, lemony-orange flavour with a good bit of peppery spice and a nice, long finish with strawberries and a lingering sourness. Tasty, indeed – I wish the can was a bit bigger!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy golden color with clovely bubblegum nose. Clovey banana body and a dry clovey finish. Simple, but it works for me.

Bottle. Hazy yellow. Very crisp, clean tasting. Wheaty, smooth mouthfeel. A very nice wheat beer, dry and smooth finish. Hints of peach, generally sweet.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2004 An Amber/Orange color cloudy with sedimentation. A short-lived white head. Mild corriander & citrus in the nose. A crisp, tart weizen, rather surprising for a Japanese made beer. Some sweetness present but the tart flavor overwhelms any other.
