3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Bottle at a souvenir shop in Okayama. It pours like a wheat beer, cloudy gold more than a pils. The peach aroma is fairly pronounced and the flavor is nice since I like fruit beers but after awhile the peach got to be a bit much. Maybe it is made using peach syrup? Nope, I just checked the label, fruit juice. So think of it more like a cocktail of peach juice and a pilsner. The peach juice makes it cloudy, fruity and sweet whereas the pilsner gives you the alcohol. Tasty enough.

Botella from a department store in Okayama City. Hazy like pale pinkish colour with a fizzy bubbly white ehad, fairly well lasting. Sweet fruity peach aroma. Good sparkling mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet with peach fruitiness indeed, mild bitterness. FRUIT brew indeed.

Not too sweet. Though the aroma was super sweet (peachy), and the body was light and fizzy (almost like a peach soda, or wine cooler). I didn’t cringe when I tasted it like I thought I might. The Japanese have a long and illustrious tradition of brewing extremely sugary fruit-flavored alcohol. This brew fits squarely into that tradition. And it is indeed tasty, though, on the fringe of what I would consider a beer.
