Nippon Beer Jozo Shiro Nigori Belgian White style beer.
Upside down can 33cl can, weird. Theres a sticker on the "bottom" with a belgian flag and an airplance which i believe means "just arrived from Belgium!" or something like that. Very pale yellow color, hazed, particles around, thick bright white head. Aroma is mostly orange, lemon, citrus peel, light spice, ginger, flowers, wheat. Tastes like soda. Soft drink, weird.

Hazy gold, white head. Spiced bubblegum and peach aroma. Very sweet with Orangina, pleasant peach, bubblegum and spice notes, No bitterness or twang from the wheat. OKish, but far too sweet for me.

Upside-down can from Natural Lawson. Drank straight from the can. Big nose of bubblegum, wheat and clove. Medium body with average carbonation. Super sweet on the palate. Birthday cake levels with bubblegum really standing out as it warms up. Too sweet.

니뽄비어주조-& 5% 괜찮은 거품 유지력. 그다지 향은 없지만 마셨을때 비강을 도는 오렌지 과육.시트러시& 코리엔더, 그레이프 프루츠. 아주약간의 비터감으로 마무리.벨지안 화이트의 깔끔한 일본적 해석 뒷맛의 정갈함 까지. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot

Upside down can wild. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a fluffy white head. Nose is lots of fresh citrus orange and lots of lemon zest. Taste is more of the citrus fruits pretty much orange and lemon the whole time.

Can. Slightly musty orange and coriander aroma with some noble hops in balance. Hazy yellow under a lacy, persistent, pristine blanket. Refreshing light lemon and minty coriander flavour with a very low bitter noble hops spice. Light body, medium carbonation, almost crisp.

From can. Pour is a hazy yellow with a big white head. Aroma of bananas and bubble gum. Taste is bananas, bubble gum, Belgian yeast, and fruity. Sweet. Soft carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Sweet finish with only a hint of bitterness. Nice. Enjoyed in Narita, Japan. Bought from a Lawsons convenience store.

Can. Had this many times, never got around to rating it. nice wit nose, very citrusy, with lemon and orange notes, wheat, coriander. Bready and rich. Typical cloudy pale gold-yellow with a low head. Sweet, fruity, spicy, wheat. Very typical. Refreshing, a bit too sweet and cakey, but decent, and better then the bigger import from Belgium that is now everywhere. Decent price too.

Orange, pepper aromas. Mild cereal bread, lemon, watery finish. Fairly boring attempt to a white, specially considering it is order-made in Belgium for that Japanese brand.
