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.

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.
