Had this on tap at Popeye's Beer Club in Ryogo-ku, Tokyo, Japan - http://www.lares.dti.ne.jp
This review is written on a post tasting basis but will be revisited/edited when the chance comes by

A - Tapped a dark brown color with a one-finger thick beige head (4)

S - Dark wheat malts, chocolate and a certain yeast astringency, that was not too pleasant, on the nose (3)

T - Dark wheat malts and chocolate flavors with a slightly overpowering phenolic astringency, likely from the yeast (2.5)

M - Thin on the body with above moderate carbonation and a watery texture (3)

D - The astringent flavors were a little offputting for me; it was on tap, so.. bad keg? (2.5)

The astringency was a little like white board marker; something that we get once in a while on certain beers. In the case of this chocolate weizen, it is extra strong.
