11.2 oz bottle dated H.14.02 and served in pint glass. Beer is pale yellow in color, with big soda bubbles rising towards a white head. Actually it looks like cloudy mountain dew. And as cloudy as it is, there's a significant layer of trub still left in the bottle. Pleasant lemon-citrus peel aroma, though.
Flavor is neutral in the grain department, thanks to a healthy load of wheat in the mash, with a coriander flavor front and center, taste profile wise. Orange peel comes out as well. Except for the heavy dose of carbonation is quite drinkable and enjoyable. But as a witbier I think the gimmick of high-quality craft brews from Japan that aren't adjunct lager has kind of worn off by now. I'm certainly less excited about this now than I was when I first tasted it years ago.
