I only bought this beer because it has a cute kitty on the can. Otherwise, I probably would have normally passed on paying $5 for a can of low-alcohol witbier. This witbier tastes more like a Hefeweizen to me.

February 22nd, 2015 - The Wednesday Cat is quickly gaining ground in Tokyo's beer wars, scooting over the endless choices of yellow fizzy beer and establishing a toe hold for a nice, pleasant white beer. Perfect in Spring, and lovely in summer, this is a nice wheat brew with a beautiful can and a nice aroma. Slightly tangy, it smells decidedly like hefeweizen, and is lightly sweet in the flavor. Poised with balance, this could be a new favorite Japanese beer, and one with wider availability than I would have expected.

350ml Can from Lawson's Station, Kyoto (¥268):
Quite an average offering from Yo-Ho & definitely not the best I've tried from them, the beer was a lot light numerous other Japanese craft beers I've tried recently, basically it was quite weak & light. There was some pleasant banana & cloves flavours coming through alongside touches of citrus & wheat but it wasn't exactly what I'd been expecting & it seemed miles behind some of the better European versions of this style.

Glimmering, bright, clear gold, and a sizzling head with little retention.
Tangerine, coriander, cinnamon aroma, and it's light.
Candy sugar sweetness, banana, oranges. Mild carbonation, medium to light body, a little cloying.
It's much too sugary for my liking, not much depth to it, no balance. You can skip it.

Belgian witbier from Yoho Brewing in Japan. Pours a crystal clear straw golden colour with a thick but transient head of froth. Aroma is mainly malty - bread, dough, and biscuit, but taste is light, somewhat sweet and has notes of spices (coriander?) and orange. Light-Medium bodied, somewhat thin mouthfeel with light and soft carbonation

I get so tired of that whole Hump Day blah-blah-blah. Bump the hump & take yer camel with ya! I have instituted Watermelon (Beer) Wednesday/Wit Wednesday/Watermelon Wit Wednesday in response. My mascot is a CANmel or in this case, a cat. Get on The CANQuest (tm) and make your week that much better!

From the CAN: "'Wednesday Cat' A Belgian-style White Ale made for Hump-Day. Fluffy and refreshing, this Belgian-style white ale has notes of Oranges and Spice from the Belgian yeast. Let this cat help you get through the rest of your week."

Wednesday Cat hissed at me on the Crack!, probably because I had shaken him a little beforehand. I turned him upside-down to CANduct an inverted Glug, and man, did he yowl! Once his CANtents were discharged, I had a finger-plus of foamy, fizzy, bone-white head with modest retention. Wednesday Cat had told it to take a nap. Color was a hazy Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). I got orange and black pepper on the nose, along with a slight metallic twang. Hmmm. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not exactly watery, but not much beyond it. The taste was muted, even for the light style. It had a orange and banana flavor, more like a Hefeweizen than a Wit. Wednesday Cat sat licking its paws. Finish was in that twilight zone between semi-sweet & semi-dry. It just seemed awfully muted in total. The Cat & the CAN were better than its CANtents, sadly enough.

I agree with StonedTrippin: this is a very delicate wit, but complex. If you can handle his punctuation, read his review... minus some hyperbole.
