3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Nakameguro.
Cloudy orange Amber color with a Lacy head. Aroma of mikans, with hops and very light malt. Flavor also predominately of mikans, with a little bit of caramel and nice balance. Bitter/sour/fruity juice like finish, but very nice. Light caramel taste lingers. Light, refreshing, good balance of sour and bitter. Great summer drink very well done.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Bottle at abraxas. Hazy orange-sickle. Stale pale malts maybe the bottle is a bit old. The delicate orange is late to the party but fun to have. Light on the tongue. Fresh and delightfully dry. I wish I had a fresh one but even old it's good.

Very interesting brew. Pour is hazy yellow with white head bottle pour thanks to Scotts tasting! Aroma has notes of some citrusy grapefruit, lemon, biscuit, tart lactic notes, hints of spice and earth in there as well. Taste is nice mix of tart fruit, grapefruit, lemon, some hints of biscuit, caramel, hints of spice, finishes fairly tart and dry.

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.
