3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy gold with a minimal white head. Aromas of natsumikan, white grapfruit zest and pith on the nose with a little bit of skunk. Taste is all citrus. Soft carbonation with a juice-like mouthfeel. Not sweet at all. Light body with some honey on the palate. Refreshing but the skunk takes it down a few notches in my book.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
You have to really have a couple of these to really appreciate all it’s nuances that are there for the taking. The Natsumikan is a Japanese Tangerine, and it gives an interesting nuance to the nose. Known mostly in its home prefecture for its juice in ice cream. Tangy and sour and extremely refreshing for a great summer time beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
less fruity than the mikan ale and more bitter. pours micro-carbonated, nice lacing, orange-amber colour, sharp orange bitterness, almost bitter-melon-like bitter with a hint of saltiness. Refreshing when ice cold, but a little astringent when as it rises in temp. Definitely more of the mikan peels coming through than the mikan ale. The mikan is better imo.
