look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

An excelent example of a Japanese made Belgian witbier
Pours a slightly cloudy goldwn yellow with a medium head that retains well.
Smells floral with hints of clove and citrus. Smooth and full bodied going down.
The taste is sweet and wheaty with citrus notes and a yeast flavour that follows.
Another great beer from this excellent Japanese craft brewery.

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.

350mL heavyweight aluminum can served in parallel sided glass. As previously reported, the can reports 5% alc./vol for this "Wednesday Cat". Beer pours pale golden yellow in color, just slightly hazey, with a medium white head. Aroma is fresh and lagery -- nice, but not all that much like a Witbier -- with just a very subtle hint of spice, perhaps lemon peel, perhaps clove. Flavor is much more up front with a lemonade like sweetness. It doesn't seem to be all that strongly carbonated, and the result is kind of thick and cloying on the tongue. I'm not a fan. It tastes more of adjunct than wheat.

Browsing the top BA beers for witbier shows there are a number of really great, widely available examples. Including Japan's own Hitachino Nest. I'd stay away from this one.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a traditional golden yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma is faint smells of spice and . The flavor is full of wheat with an interesting sweet finish.

Poured from an 11.8 oz. can. Has a whitish/yellow color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of wheat, spices. Taste is wheat, citrus, light spices, refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent and highly drinkable beer.

Poured from the can into a Hoegaarden glass. What a neat can and cool looking cat!

Slightly hazy, but a nice brass gold like color, and strong bright lemon when held to the light. Ample amounts of fine carbonation, to a fine bleach white head. Head manages soapy retention, and a Styrofoam bit of suds, but has a creamy top and some decent amount of staying power for a wit. Creamy top and fine puck, with a thick collar as it slowly settles.

Nice aroma. Sprtizy kind of clove and light phenols even going with a bit of lemon zest with it. Mild sensing sugars and a deep thick grain and chewy sense to go with it, just a touch of coriander sneaking out as well. Quite nice, very solid if a bit basic but nicely getting the job done.

Interesting palate. Soft with a good chewy and light body, excellent depth for transmitting the flavors. Soft grains and mild sensing fruit qualities of lemon zest and even a bit of peach. Aftertaste is soft and almost taffy like with mild sense of sweetness. Coriander flavor comes out nice and balanced not overbearing either.

A real nice solid witbier getting the job done well.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a slightly hazy light golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipates quickly to a thin film and ring around the glass with light temporary lacing. Aroma of wheat, banana, light bready malt, Belgian yeast and clove. Flavor follows with well integrated buttery, bready malt, wheat, banana and clove, finisihing slightly sweet with clove and Belgian yeast. Light bodied. Flavor is somewhat subdued, but pleasant and spot-on for a witbier. Nicely done. My can has a listed ABV of 5%, so this may have changed since the original entry. This beer is not on the brewery website, so I was unable to confirm the permanence of the change.

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color and has some particulates floating near the bottom. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving a thin film of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of wheat are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has additional hints of lemons.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, but is a little lacking in aroma and flavors.

Serving type: can

Clear filtered, straw gold, little carbonation, 3 fingers of white head that fades fast.

Coriander, light Belgian yeasts with a sort of Unibroue smokiness. A sort of pear like fruitiness.

Coriander, Belgian yeasts, light smokiness, slight apple like acidity.

Medium light body, almost no carbonation.

Found in Chiang Mai, drank May 10th, 2015. Great can, bravo to Yo-Ho for nailing the style, but keeping it craft and unique.
