Hazy yellow color, smallish white head. Yeasty, clove spicey aroma with some banana. Light-bodied (light for this ABV). Yeasty and spicey flavor. Light tart citrus. Some banana too but a bit messy and not really refreshing or fruity. Probably better from bottle with yeast.
Draught at Beer Belly Tenma. Cloudy yellow - white head. High sweetness. Lots of banana. Light flowery. Candy sweetness. Spicy notes. Light acid notes. gnoff (10713) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2014
350 ml can thanks to Ingo! On May 24, 2014.KyotoLefty (10523) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 15, 2008
As "The Billiken Beer - Weizen", 5% ABV.
The slightest bit hazy, straw yellow color, fluffy white head. Sweet, banana ester, some cheese scent. Spicy, clove, sweet, estery banana taste. Spicy aftertaste. Medium to a bit thin mouthfeel, low bitterness.
Decent take on the style.
Draught at the Beer Belly.
A decent weizen, rather light in flavor but does what it is supposed to do, with bananas, cloves, etc. Well done, though not quite inspiring.

I’ve had this several times and it is a solid weizen made in Osaka. You’re typical cloudy gold pour with a fluffy white head. Mild spicy sweet aroma and a light refreshing spicy weizen taste. Pretty average but nice. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 5, 2010
On tap at Beer Belly, Osaka. Cloudy golden with a lasting head. Good spicy fruit nose. Banana and moderate clove flavours. An impressive weizen.
