Bottle… mgumby10’s & hopscotch’s WtFFfFDotF Throwdown … Cloudy golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The fruity aroma offers notes of ripe apricot and peach alongside crisp pale grains. Medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Decently balanced. Fruity and tangy – apricot and peach - plus pale malt sweetness. Lengthy, fruity finish that eventually dries out. Bottle provided by mgumby10!

Thanks sebletitje for the share. Pours hazy orange gold with a white head. Nose is orange, malt, spice, citrus fruit, sugary light fruit, and star fruit. Flavor is a lot of sweetness and light fruit that is beginning to make me think that there is a basic Japanese fruit for beers like these. Light bodied and very sessionable, enjoyable beer.

This is the Shizuoka Natsumikan Ale as per the label with 6% abv.
Pours a cloudy golden with nice white head.
Aroma of citrus/orange peel, yeast with light bitterness nose. Lots of freshness come out of the aroma.
Taste, lots of sweet citrus flavors, with some other fruits juice that I can’t really pinpoint and must be the Japanese fruit mentioned.
Some spices, light bitterness. This is one tasty beer.
Very impressed by this newly available brewery.

Pours a glowing bright orange color, with a small off white head. Smells of big citrus, I got a lot of praches and apricots in there. i suppose natsurnikans as well, whatever they are. The flavor is also pretty fruity, mixed with some nice sweet malt and sugars. Big peach flavors come through for me. Very refreshing and interesting little fruit beer. Makes me want to try a Japanese natsurnikan and see what it tastes like. Cool beer to try.

Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a deep, murky gold/orange with white fizzy head. Aroma of passion fruit and floral hops. Flavor of fruit, some wild yeast, light hoppy bitter with a not so good after taste. Mouthfeel is light body, high carbonation with a little fizz. Not bad.
