Pours a murky light yellow with a foamy khaki bone colored that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy chunks of lace slowly drop into the remaining beer on the drink down. Small particles of sediment sink to the bottom of the glass after the pour. Smell is of malt, wheat, and some subdued grassy and yeast aromas. There are some fruity aromas that come out as the beer warms up. Taste is much the same with fruity and slight spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has some interesting flavors that are better than the smell.

3.91/5  rDev +11.1%

Pours straw-yellow with a half inch head that dissipates quiqly. Interestingly, it seems like the head starts to grow a little out of the already-poured beer shortly after I poured it.

Smell is faint, but has hints of light grain, caramel, and citrus.

Tastes is strong for a hefeweizen (I believe that is what this beer is, and not weizenbock, as is said in the description). The alcohol content is somewhere around 5-6% in my opinion. Tastes of sour apple, line, and orange peels. There is a sweet element to it, maybe maple syrop.

The beer is medium-bodied, moderately carbonated, with a strong "bite" on the tongue - both from flavor and carbonation.

Overall, it is a drinkable hafe from Japan, that brings something unique to the table and can stand it's own among other comparable beers.
