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.

i believe this translates to "wednesday cat" or something like that, its a witbier style from japan, and its quite good. very delicate, refined, awesome stuff. i have seen their cans around a little bit, but this is the first i have seen on tap. its pretty in the glass, very pale and clear for the style, brightly carbonated, looks almost like a champagne. aroma and flavor line up pretty well, notes of lemon and slightly spicy belgian yeast, soft though, mellow but interesting, lemongrass, even like an apple mint or something herbal and floral like that. super dry though, its an odd mix of quick and complex, like, it didnt have enough time to develop fully before its off the tongue, gone on the swallow, really impressive, tantalizing almost, keeps me wanting more, and i end up drinking this way too fast. its refreshing and seems fancy to me somehow. im not sure i could drink enough of this beer to be satisfied, like, there might not be enough out there to quench my desire for more of it. this has me incredibly curious to try some of their other stuff! delicate and exciting for a simple wit type.
