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.

Pleased to grab a fresh bottle in Tokyo. Bottled < 1 month ago.

A - Cloudy and opaque yellow hue. Good carbonation with a quality head which receded promptly.

S - Lemon peel, citrus, pale malts and a pinch of nutmeg.

T - Clean floral sweetness with subtle notes of coriander and a touch citrus. Damn good balance.

M - Really nice body for the style: fresh lemon with moderate carbonation keeps the beer prickly while maintaining a strong body for the style.

O - This is one of the best Wits your yen can buy. I can only hope it is comparable in the States.
