I picked up this sweet potato beer at a Mom & Pop shop on Shijo on the way to Bungalow. This is part of my goal to try as many Japanese breweries as I can this year and also because I like fruit beers. Served in a pilsner glass. It pours a light purple with a fizzy pinkish head that vanishes fast leaving no trace behind... is this really beer? Straight from the fridge the aroma isnít so bad, earthy malts & sweet potatoes. Medium to light bodied, it has a harsh sharp mouthfeel. The taste is cardboard, sweet potato & artificial sweetener like aspartame. Looking at the ingredient list this is a frankenstein like beer, food coloring, barley syrup, barley, some kind of starch, various types of potatoes and hops... I get no hops from this at all. I guess it is technically a beer as it has barley, yeast, hops & water but this is a big miss. More of a crappy alcoholic cocktail than a beer. People should avoid this, especially for 580 yen. Itís a gimmick beer.

Bottle at home (thankfully only a small serving as a whole bottle might be tough!). Aroma is a bit manure like, bit fruity, cherry. Taste is sweet, lightly fruity, not much there. Bit alcopop like, but ok. Not as horrible as it could be. Think it is a shocking pink red colour, but it was very dark where I was drinking it.

330ml bottle at abv 5% bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty. Clear light ruby reddish-pink colour; Half-finger head and white foam which fades in 30 seconds. Minimal lacing with notable carbonation; Aroma of light malt, dark fruit, molasses, red grapes, Ribena, and hint of alcohol; Minimally sweet taste of faint malt, carbonated soda water and hint of hops. Light body, watery palate; Taste profile is tasteless and blank, much like Blanche de Namur. Itís like a very diluted red grape juice with barely detectable malt and hint of Robitussin (yes, Robitussin) here and there. Some minimal tartness to light up the palate. Hoppiness is almost zero. Slightly dry after taste, Fairly easy to mouth.

Comments: this is by far the most disappointing vegetable beer Iíve had. Despite its good looking colours, promising ingredients such as locally grown potatoes and silver vine fruit, it is basically beer water devoid of any notable taste. I wish I can say something about sweetness and maltyness, but it feels like a heavily diluted Ribena with occasional cough syrup spikes. A US$10 import price tag is definitely not justified. Stay away and have a proper Ribena instead.
