Bought single can from Max Value, Yomitan, Okinawa...

A - Pours a dark hazy orange with one finger of white head that quickly disappears.
S - Smells of citrus, blood orange, Flintstones vitamins, and sweet syrup.
T - Sweet and light citrus right up front followed by nothing else. A very basic flavor, which would go very well with an orange slice.
M - Mouthfeel is light medium bodied with firm small bubble carbonation.

Overall a delicious Hefeweizen, that is simple and could be easily enjoyed by a first time beer drinker as well as an old salt dog. Recommend.

The beer comes in a hazy golden yellow color.

The aroma has a bit of funky grain and fruit, but generally wheat, banana, a bit of lemon, and pepper.

The flavor follows with a bit of that funky/skunky off banana, citrus, lemon flavor. There's a bit of sweet wheat to clean it up, but with a bit more of off flavors on the finish.
