On tap at DDC. Hazy copper pour, smallish head. Lots of rice on the aroma, rice cakes, green tea, buckwheat, roastiness. The roastiness comes out strong in the taste, fresh tea, herbal (feels quite hoppy). Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Very good experiment.

On tap at Dieu du Ciel. Pours a ruby tinged brown amber with a medium sized beige head. Toast, light tea notes. Hop bitterness and sweet green tea. Spicy tea, light sweetness. Toasty malt and lingering green tea tannins. Very interesting and quite tasty. Glad I got this one in my first group as it kicked about a half hour later.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2012 Un verre de dégustation le jour du 13ème anniversaire du DDC. Le liquide est jaunâtre est très trouble. Les yeux ne traversent pas cette mer agitée. Le nez est caractérisé par les mêmes arômes que certain Sake, une eau de riz et même le riz rôti présent dans les thés genmaicha玄米茶. La bouche est très agréable, le corps moyen les goûts enveloppant de ce riz grillé sont hallucinant. Une belle découverte.

My Bottom Line :
Earthy green tea, spicy buckwheat and bready yeast converge in this very interesting quaffer.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A creamy head of foam covers the cloudy amber.
-The green tea character is also milky at times.
-The mouthfeel is cushiony; not sweet, but still ample and fluffy.
-This drinks like a Japanese alternative to Bitter. As drinkable as it is creative!
-Complexity is not an issue here. This is a simple and soft pint which you can easily forget about if the conversation (or your book) is good enough.
-This too, like many DDC creations, has lots of potential in food pairing.

On tap at the brewpub.

Murky orange in colour with a thin white coloured head,light lacing. Aroma is of wheat, peaches, grains, cereal, light sweetness, herbal. Flavour is of a mild sweetness, cereal, light tea, herbal and lots of it. Smooth mouthfeel, light body, mild carbonation. Finishes wheaty, some earth with more herbs.


Very strange beer. Buckwheat is weird in beer for sure but I did like it though.

Draught at Mondial 2009 in Montreal, Quebec.

Sampled on June 4, 2009.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2010 On tap at the Japanese Beer event. Pours a hazy light orange with a decent lasting head- spotty lace. Aroma is of doughy wheat, herbal earthy tea-like, ligth citrus, and grainy. Flavor is also grainy, wheat, light bodies, lemon zesty hops earth, tree bark, tea, and bitter herbal finish. Very light and strange./

An interesting brew at the brewpub. Tea eye? What does this name mean? Anyway, pours a orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is mostly rich grains some sweet fruit. The flavor has distinct tea notes, sweet, grainy. The tea adds a floral component. Interesting.
