An excelent example of a Japanese made Belgian witbier
Pours a slightly cloudy goldwn yellow with a medium head that retains well.
Smells floral with hints of clove and citrus. Smooth and full bodied going down.
The taste is sweet and wheaty with citrus notes and a yeast flavour that follows.
Another great beer from this excellent Japanese craft brewery.

350mL heavyweight aluminum can served in parallel sided glass. As previously reported, the can reports 5% alc./vol for this "Wednesday Cat". Beer pours pale golden yellow in color, just slightly hazey, with a medium white head. Aroma is fresh and lagery -- nice, but not all that much like a Witbier -- with just a very subtle hint of spice, perhaps lemon peel, perhaps clove. Flavor is much more up front with a lemonade like sweetness. It doesn't seem to be all that strongly carbonated, and the result is kind of thick and cloying on the tongue. I'm not a fan. It tastes more of adjunct than wheat.

Browsing the top BA beers for witbier shows there are a number of really great, widely available examples. Including Japan's own Hitachino Nest. I'd stay away from this one.

Poured from an 11.8 oz. can. Has a whitish/yellow color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of wheat, spices. Taste is wheat, citrus, light spices, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent and highly drinkable beer.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a slightly hazy light golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipates quickly to a thin film and ring around the glass with light temporary lacing. Aroma of wheat, banana, light bready malt, Belgian yeast and clove. Flavor follows with well integrated buttery, bready malt, wheat, banana and clove, finisihing slightly sweet with clove and Belgian yeast. Light bodied. Flavor is somewhat subdued, but pleasant and spot-on for a witbier. Nicely done. My can has a listed ABV of 5%, so this may have changed since the original entry. This beer is not on the brewery website, so I was unable to confirm the permanence of the change.

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color and has some particulates floating near the bottom. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional hints of lemons.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, but is a little lacking in aroma and flavors.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale yellow in color with light amounts of active visible carbonation and hints of lemon + straw yellow. The beer has a quarter finger tall sudsy foamy white head that reduces to a small patch of mottled extremely thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of wheat and grainy malts with hints of banana. Very light notes of spices.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of wheat and grainy malts with a hint of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors spices/coriander and yeast with a hint of banana.

M: Light bodied with slightly less than moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin.

O: Easy to drink and refreshing though would probably be best enjoyed on a hot summer day. Kind of light in flavor, aroma, and body but worth trying.
