Looking for something a little different? Brewed with rice and barley malts, Samurai is an easy drinking, unfiltered ale that changes the status quo for unfiltered beers. The addition of rice gives Samurai a slightly fruity, crisp, refreshing and clean taste. This is definitely not your everyday unfiltered beer.

Pours a pale yellow. Aroma is thin, bready, yeast. Taste is pretty plain, hints of grain, lemons, bananas and bread. Very mild and plain. Very light body, medium carbonation. Watery. Not my favorite.

"fruity and crisp as advertised. cloudy yellow tight carbonation. this would pass for a nice enough brew (especially in the sumer) for most breweries, but not great divide. probably my least favorite for this great brewer."

hotstuff (4393) - Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Rated on 12-09-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small white fizzy head with short retention, transparent/slightly hazy pale yellow body, fizzy carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The Aroma is rice, crisp and fruity. The Taste mimics the Aroma and it has a dry finish. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, I did not enjoy the flavor of this beer as the rice just does not jive with the rest of the beer and thus this is a beer I will not seek out or recommend.

One of my least favorite Great Divide beers. I wanted to like it. Im always excited to see great brewers experiment, especially when they go lighter. This beer, unfortunately, has an awkward palate, grainy with an overly mild character.

July 2010. From bottle. Cloudy golden yellow with a white head. Fruit, malt and grassy aromas. Interesting ale, but not my kind.
