3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at CBM Jimbocho August 2014. Really nice deep dried apricot orange color with a nice head. Nose is all fruit: apricot, pear and citrus. Nice biscuity malt quality present as well. More fruit on the palate along with some tastes of lemongrass and hay. Fairly well balanced but definitely fruit forward. Slightly dry finish, but refreshing.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Baird Nakameguro
Pour is dark orange with a white lace. The aroma is herbal and fruity. Taste is bready and has some fruity hop character. Not my favourite of the bunch but it was still fairly drinkable.

Tap at Nakameguro taproom. Aroma is floral and fruity. Very nice. Taste is good too, dry maltiness with fruity hoppy bitterness. Maybe best beer of the night. Suprising!

Bready, decent fruitiness, touch of pear, herbal hops, sharp dry bitter finish. Not their most impressive seasonal, quite dry on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very fruity, bouncy ale. kind of fun but serious at the same time. orange, grass, orchard fruits and a fairly weighty body to back it up. A quencher, though a bit dangerous, hiding 6% pretty well.
