COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yuzu is the Japanese name for a citron (a slightly less acidic lemon-lime type fruit). It is a wonderfully aromatic fruit with a snappy zest that is much prized in Japan. We received our portion from the Temple grounds of the family of one of Baird Beers' closest friends. We proceeded to shave off and collect the outer peels and hand-squeeze the juice. We then added both the peels and the juice to a rich, malted-wheat accented wort at the end of kettle boil. The end result is, in a word, divine! Hazy golden-orange in color, Temple Garden Yuzu Ale sports a cloud-like creamy white head that immediately conjures images of a higher being. The brisk citric aroma of Yuzu quickly invades the olfactory senses. The mouthfeel is softy coating and fruity-sweet but a playful carbonation and citric acidity keep the palate in an alert state of attention. Finally, a kiss of malt roundness and honeyed sweetness send the Yuzu fruit flavor into paroxysms of Nirvana-like joy. Temple Garden Yuzu Ale surely is a beery sign that, in the apocryphal words of Benjamin Franklin, "God loves us and wants us to be happy."

En väldigt anonym öl tycker jag. Visst finns det lite beska och lite grapefrukt - men spännande nej.

A quite tasty and refreshing ale.
Hazy dark golden color with a fine head that last. Looks good. A fine intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and a fine carbonation. Pleasant balance between sweetness and acidity. Semi dry texture. Lots of fruit in here. Also citric and some yeast in the flavor.
