3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
As Shizuoka Natsumikan. Hazy orange color with a medium head. A very plantish and leafy aroma, like walking into a greenhouse. Very light flavors of fruit and flowers. A touch of bitterness on the finish. Fairly non-descript. I am not familiar with the fruit used in this beer, but it may be too delicate to stand up to a beer, as it really does not seem to have added much.

Sampled on 12/18/2009. This fruit beer pours a medium orange gold color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, citrusy and sweet. A medium bodied fruit beer. The malts are fruity and citrusy, sweet and tart. The hops are citrusy. Lively carbonation. Nice balance. Slightly citrusy and tart. Delicate flavors. A very nice touch of blending a fairly non-traditional brewing fruit into a beer. Subtle. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly tart and bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22OZ bottel pours a very cloudy pale orange/light amber. Small off-white head. Aroma is orange mango or tangerine and sweet citrusy hops. Malt flavors are light and fruity and while there is some hop flavor, there is not much bitterness from them. Strange fruity flavors but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a cloudy orange color with a nice thick pure white head. The nose is bright and fruity with tons of orange and crispy hop notes. The fruitiness in the nose moves its way seamlessly into the flavor. A bit more sweeter than it is bitter, a hopped up version (ala, the IPA) would be a lot better. Almost like a pummelo, the fruit adds a lot to this that the hops normally would. Nice combination.
