Draft at the Baird Tasting Room in Nakameguro. Brings out much more fruitiness than its ’Asian Beauty’ cousin. A great sourness in the finish as well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Q-Brick. Copper-peach color with just a little lace. Aroma of Belgian yeast; fruity, not exactly biwa, a bit citric. Warm mellow malt flavor, tangy and spicy, nice furit, though again it doesn’t taste specifically like loquat. Slightly creamy to buttery. Nice, peppery, hoppy finish. All right. A nice drinker.
