11.2 ounce bottle poured into a weizen glass.

Appearance: Pours a hazy yellow with a one-and-a-half finger white head. Lots of carbonation.

Aroma: Orange peel, lemon, spices, a little pineapple. Some floral quality, some wheat.

Taste: Follows the nose. Pretty fruit-forward - lemon, orange peel, pineapple are all there. Also some spice.

Mouthfeel: This beer has a summery depth. Kind of light, but not abnormally so for the style.

Overall: Decent wheat beer. Certainly better than Blue Moon, which seems to be its American analogue. Would try more from Kiuchi.
