A 250ml bottle with a best before date of 4th May 2017, poured into a Moonzen teku glass.

Appearance: It poured a cloudy reddish pinkish orange colour with a two finger off white head that dissipated quickly and left some lacing.

Aroma: Sweet candy raspberry and strawberry with perhaps a touch of grape juice.

Taste: Sweet candied raspberries followed by apple juice. The finish is somewhat watered down such that any taste becomes really weak.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: I’m actually fine with the artificial candy berry flavours, but that taste on the finish of being watered down is what disappoints me most.

Purchased in Japan and poured from a 250 ml bottle into a hexagonal glass.

Look: Very cloudy and opaque with a red-brownish chalky color. The head is composed of fine white bubbles and starts out about half an inch deep but quickly fades to a thin layer on the surface leaving no lacing.

Smell: Prickly and sour raspberry is very strong with a syrupy thickness. Buried beneath this is a faint fresh wheat smell.

Taste: Starts off with a sour tang accentuated by raspberry flavor. A little bit bitter aftertaste, reminiscent of the greens and chaff that might accompany a raspberry. The raspberry flavor is pretty powerful, but underneath it is the barest hint of that fresh wheat beer flavor and yeastiness.

Feel: Very light and carbonated. Feels like a soda or a bellini with the low ABV, overall very refreshing. The carbonation is lively on the tongue.

Overall: An interesting take on the witbier style, but the raspberry color/smell/flavor are all a bit too predominant and overshadow the underlying witbier itself.
