Aroma is bread crust-like, especially at first; there is also some tart fruitiness and soft vanilla. One-finger, eggshell-white head doesn't last long; body is cloudy, brown. Upfront flavor includes bread crust and fruitiness, like overripe apple; a little sour yeastiness; banana and clove qualities come through gradually. Somewhat light body is not as full as anticipated; moderate carbonation and crispness; a slight mineral texture.

The malt qualities come through at first but don't seem to last. It's not bad for a hefeweizen—no overt bubblegum, and the yeasty tartness is restrained. For its purported style however, it lacks the character of a malty beer.

Lugged this one back from Japan.

Oak pour with an off-white head that had decent retention and put down a few spots of lace. Spicy aroma, some banana phenols, a lot of brown bread and some sweetness. The flavour is far breadier than I would have expected, but the clues are in the nose. Its quite sweet with a nice touch of spice, and almost reminds me of a dubbel. Moderate body and carbonation.

I think its a decent beer, but it really suffered in comparison to some of the others we worked our way through. Even relative to the Japanese craft scene I wouldn't put this in the upper half. Teir IPA is great, but this is just average.

Appearance: Root beer Dum-Dum opaque stained-glass brown. Respectable off-white nougat head. Good retention.

Smell: Bananas, apple pie, spicy yeast. Buttery caramel with a milky sweetness, almost like a lacto stout. Malts are nutty and solid, like smooth peanut butter. Nice. Not much in the hop department, but the sweet is countered well by the spice.

Taste: Not as complex or as thick as the aroma, predominantly yeasty, tangy, and fruity with a bready pretzel base. Banana liqueur, vanilla ice cream, and leafy hops appear far in the background.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and perfectly carbonated, but a bit thin until you work up a froth in your mouth.

Drinkability: Though I wish the flavor were more robust, this is an easy beer to drink. Not the most interesting Dunkel out there, but the yeast adds enough of a twang to keep it from being boring.

A - Beautiful reddish brown
S - fresh aroma, spicy sweet.
T - Sweet start, fantastic dark bread flavor on the finish that took me by surprise. A bit too sweet for this to get full ratings from me, but many of the belgian beer lovers out there would probably go wild for this.
M - soft and mild carbonation. smooth and yummy
D - This is a great beer. Sweet enough to be interesting, but really not oversly sweet. Try it if you can find it.

Mr. Yahata (Beer Belly) was telling me something about Ginjokura, but I search around on the web for a connection and couldnt find one.
