4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Tanakaya. Hazy gold with a half-finger of white foam. Really nice yeasty saison-like nose with rice, mikan, pepper and some floral aromas. Slightly above average carbonation with some rice-forward sweetness. Some green apple and pear come out as it warms. Very much like a saison or Belgian strong golden ale. Hides the 7 percent fairly well. Finish is slightly sweet with some light dry peppery bitterness. Very similar to Shiga’s Yamabushi saison 1. A great, unique Japanese beer.

Interesting rice brew, quite smooth and soft, does have some of the round sweetness of sake. Not a perfect balance yet, but you can enjoy the original sake twist quite well.

Draught at the Craft Beer Fest Kyoto 2014. Very wheat like nose with some light fruity notes. Cloudy pale honey color, creamy head, some lace. Light fruit punch, a bit of citrus, gets deeper with hopping, good bittering develops, and then back to the fruit, light stewed peaches. Tastes stronger than 7%

On tap at the Kyoto 2014 Craft Beer. The Yago poured a cloudy light gold with a pretty nice banana & cloves aroma. Medium bodied with tons of weizen flavor, really spicy with cloves up the wazoo. Tasty but an aggressive weizen like beer.
