Appearance- Pale cloudy yellow with a white head

Smell- Citrus and fruits. Less spice than most witbiers

Taste- Follows the nose. Citrus (more orange than lemon) with a light amount of spice. This is different than most witbiers I have tried that seem to have more of a lemon kick than orange.

MF- Crisp and refreshing

Overall- Another great beer, 2 for 2 with this brewery cant wait to try another

This is one of the more delicious and refreshing beverages I've had this summer! What makes it even more impressive is that the Japanese have jumped on board with micro-brewing and put this little gem out. I would definitely recommend it for...well anything apart from a philosophical evening with friends. Very happy to have picked it up; quite satisfied.

a pretty famous beer here, it has eluded me somehow until now. picked this up under 6 bucks over at colorado liquor mart, who is still chugging along with some hidden gems in the back there. a nice take on a wit, different than almost all of them because of (what i perceive anyway) this fresh ginger in here. a blonde beer with a golden flare, clear for the style, and while there are a ton of bubbles in it, no head really ever builds up. the nose is almost like ginger ale, its so potent to me, i have to believe there is real ginger in it. belgian type yeast is also fruity, while some malt other than wheat i think makes an appearance, giving some light caramel flavors as a base. ginger and cracked pepper in the finish, this could pass as a saison on the yeast character alone, less belgian than saison in that regard. super refreshing, and even though it looks flat, there are a lot of bubbles here in solution. my first beer from this operation is a winner, i like this a lot, different from the masses but still comfortably within what the style asks for. perfect hot weather refresher. super dig it.
