COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a hazy golden hue reminiscent of the morning sun rising up above Mount Fuji, Japan Tale Ale presents itself immediately as a Japanese story. The pure white head of billowy foam hints at the fabled origins of this great island country -- the Sun Goddess, Amaterasu. The sophisticatedly understated aroma of tart Japanese plums speaks of the history of the Imperial Court as it might have existed in the ancient city of Kyoto during the Heian era. The light, almost ephemeral delicacy of flavor tips its hat to the storied history of the Japanese artisan (the potters and the swordmakers, the flower arrangers and the Geisha performers). Beneath this delicacy, though, there exists a flavor character of strength and steely determination that tells of the history of the great Japanese warriors -- the Samurai. An overriding sense of balance and unselfish purpose serves to tie the tale together as if somehow echoing the essence of an informally yet unmistakably united national polity.

Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Smells like plums, lime and grains. Tastes of tart fruit and sourdough with moderate carbonation. Pretty nice..

KansaiBeerLvrs (2273) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2013
A fruit beer made with plum. 5.5% a super cloudy straw gold with a fluffy white head & a fresh plum aroma. The flavor is a mild zesty plum but the mouthfeel is thin & a bit watery with low carbonation. Zesty citrus that mellows into plum. Decent but it needs a bit more body & carbonation. Near the end of my glass the sweetness was getting slightly cloying but overall very nice.

Davros (1999) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours very pale straw with a fading head. Nose shows some funk and sweet stonefruit along with faint wheat. Acidic flavours, but with doughy notes underneath and the faintest hint of more stonefruit. Very drinkable but not all that interesting. Needs more carbonation.
