At long last, Aoi brewing in Shizuoka City has released its Weizen!
It certainly proved better than expected in spite of the high esteem for Aoi Brewing craft beers!
Incidentally The brewery is in the process of making a wholly Shizuoka Weizen with barley and its malt produced in Fujinomiya City at the foot of Mount Fuji!
Served on tap
Wheat, Australian Galaxy hop, Tettnang hop, Pilsner malt, Wheat malt, sugars.
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Color: light orange
Bubbles: longish head. Very fine bubbles, a little creamy. White.
Aroma: assertive. Dry banana with hints of cloves and lemon.
Taste: very refreshing, dry and fruity attack.
Some welcome acidity well balanced by dry bananas and softened by hints of lemon.
Deep pleasant taste lingering long enough on palate for true tasting.
Stays true to first impressions all the way through.
Practically does not change with food.
Overall: definitely heads and shoulders above most Weizen found in this country. Stronger and more reliable, too.
Solid and so reliable. Refreshing craft beer for all seasons!
Definitely bound to become a long seller!
