There's some light bubblegum in the aroma along with some clove, vanilla, and a faint twang of lemon and yeasty sourness. The dull yellow body is very cloudy; the eggshell-white head is foamy with good retention; lots of lacing sticks around. There is some rather pronounced bitterness in the initial taste. Also present is some banana, vanilla, and grainy malt. The clove spiciness is restrained but well balanced with the sweeter qualities. Surprisingly not much yeasty sourness. A grainy texture lingers upon swallowing. The body is medium-light with crisp, spritzy carbonation.

This is a very delicious, refreshing, and well-structured weizen. The bitterness was a little surprising at first, but it helps to balance out the sweeter flavors in place of the thankfully absent yeasty sourness. The carbonation is a bit intense but not bad.

Poured from a 11.2 OZ bottle into a pint glass.
Aroma- I can detect wheat and rice, not bad
Appearance- A great murky golden yellow color, with a small head
Taste- A nice wheat flavor with a bitter aftertaste
Palate- Dry medium bodied
Overall- not a bad beer, not their best style of beer from Kiuchi but a pretty good beer to try.
