Hazy, pale golden colour with minimal head but decent carbonation. Fruity wheat aroma with mild citric undertones. Well balanced taste, both sweet and dry tones, although the finish is predominantly sweet.

All in all a very good example of a traditional European witbier and the first I have enjoyed from Japan. Would like to find more of Hitachino's products...

Bottle from BevMo in Stockton, CA

A - Poured a hazy yellow color with a white head that leaves some lacing behind

S - Has a spicy yeasty nose with coriander and citrus

T - Like the nose starts off with spices then the coriander comes out and finishes a little yeasty

M - This beer has a light body with higher carbonation to it

O - It's been a long time since I had this and my memories haven't faded with how good I thought it was this new bottle today is drinking wonderful this is a great beer for the summer and is worth getting to try sometime
