Pours a clear straw color with a finger of white head. Head retention is okay. Aroma is heavy yeast ester, rye and hop spice, and clove. It has a soft, spicy aroma between the large amounts of yeast and hops. Flavor profile is rye and clove, spicy and herbal hops with biscuit malts behind. all layered over heavy yeast esters. Mouth feel is fizzy to the point of aggressive, which keeps it from drinking smooth. It has a medium thickness. Overall, a fair witbier. Heavy carbonation drags it down a little, but otherwise a great beer for those seeking heavy yeast esters.

Served in a 8oz hotel glass from a 33cl can.

Cat beer from Japan. Have to try it.

Mostly clear yellow colored beer with a small white head. Expected paler and cloudier beer beer for the style.

Smells is much more to the style. Smells like Belgian Witbier, they used the correct yeast. Smells of powdery yeast and spicy. Coriander is of medium level for the style. Spicy on the nose with lots of Banana, Pepper and yeast bread.

Starts out spicy on the tongue. Mild cracker sweetness with coriander spice. Cardamom and pepper with a soft yeast after taste. Mild bitterness that is a little more than average. The taste is very accurate and traditional for the style.

Mouthfeel is good. Definitely not a light beer.

Overall very good especially considering where it came from. Just a guess there is a problem using wheat malt in Japan. They didn't fudge by using lots of spices. They used the correct yeast type and took the time to let it work.

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
