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...
