Cloudy light amber color. Mildly citrusy nose. The focus is on the malt, but there isn’t enough acidicity to lift the beer and let the fruit really shine, unlike the Yuzu or Mikan. Well made, but you can only go so far with this beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at the Fishmarket taproom. Aroma of fruity Belgian yeast. Spicy as well, slightly like a tripel, with light malts. Fruit not so evident, blends in well. Well balanced, creamy and nice.
