Pour: This pours a bright gold. It’s like a glass full of sunshine. Half-finger head. Color: Bright Whites. Bouquet: Light bright yeast. Creamy-sweet like apple blossom honey or mead. Sip: Creamy sweet yeasts explode and fade into a light citrus and vanilla. Hot grass and tart fruit round out the finish. Mouthfeel: Buttery, creamy. Light bodied, soft yet plentiful carbonation. Pairings: Great for Seafood and fish. I immediately thought of soft-shelled crab, crawfish, oysters, and clams. I had a poached salmon with a mango glaze that would pair nicely with this.

On tap at Kuunohanare, Nagaoka. Cloudy gold, creamy short-lived head. Tangy, yeasty aromas. Beautifully smooth and buttery, very subtle hints of coriander and banana. Delicious! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can at 5.5%. Poured into a tall weizen glass it has a slightly hazy pale gold colour with two fingers tightly-packed bubble foam. Wheaty aroma, mild fruity esters. Light banana and wheat flavour, gentle spice, none of the bubblegum that often comes with local weizens, a light musty lager note in both aroma and flavour. It’s light-bodied, a touch too spritzy, something aqueous, like mineral water lingering. Not a very interesting weizen.

Draught at Keyaki 2014. quite fizzy, mostly banana flavor with a touch of vanilla. Average unimpressive weizen.

Hazy orange color, small white head, Aroma has overriped banana. Medium-bodied. Lots of banana in the flavor, a bit yeasty. Quite straightforward hefeweizen taste. Could be more complex.

Part of a set on Rakuten direct from the brewery, bottle. A very solid weizen, it poured with a nice white head over a cloudy gold body. The aroma is spicy & sweet and the flavor matches. One of the better weizens made in Japan I think.

AndySnow (8359) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Bottle from Tanakaya, Tokyo. Golden colour with a white head. Lemony aroma and flavour. A bit chemical.
