Bought a can of this from Kaldi in Saitama, Japan. Poured into a Paulaner weizen glass. Beautiful thick white head with a semi-cloudy wheat-hued body. Goes down smoothly with a bit of a sweet orange flavor and no negative aftertaste or gas. Overall, this is a solid, solid hefe, especially out of a can. I would definitely recommend it, and I will be buying more in the future.

"The original shironigori is authentic Belgian white beer style, traditionally brewed with natural ingredients."

333ml can poured into a hotel tumbler. For whatever reason, the label is printed upside down on the can, and the can is stored on the shelves upside down with a plastic lid over the top of the can.

Pours very pale cloudy yellow with a tiny head and lots of carbonation. Smell is very fruity, I smell lemons and oranges, with some spices.

Taste is spices, malt, mild. Still quite fruity. Lemony, but sweet. Otherwise, fairly nondescript.

Mouthfeel is a little too carbonated; it feels fizzy. Overall, it's not bad.
