look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

pours out a nice pineapple, golden light brown. great color but rather weak head, unimpressive for the style. Appearance is pretty average hefe.

it's been a while since i've had a really good weizen. recently i had was the erdinger octoberfest. got it fresh, on tap in the proper glassware, it looked gorgeous but didn't have a lot of smell or flavor. thought it was ok but not great. back to the yokohama offering in front of me. wow, this one has a big, bold, fruity and spicy smell that, while it is pretty standard for the style, it's exactly what i want from a hefeweizen.

taste does not disappoint. this beer may lack the depth, character and mouthfeel of the german greats, but i give it a little extra credit for being yet another good japanese craft beer. and at a very reasonable price, 330 yen. like the smell, the taste is not exactly unique or remarkable, but it's solid and tasty. highly recommended if you are in the yokohama area. i got it at the major shopping center downtown, have never seen it anywhere else.
