3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Harvestmoon’s Yuzu Ale pours a much darker than expected amber-brown with a light beige head. The nose is a sweet candyish yuzu that evokes lemon drops. Full on fresh yuzu aroma which I like. Light bodied with a sharp carbonation. The taste is caramel & candied yuzu making it too sweet for me. Pair with desert or something to cut the sweetness. I do like the dry lemon tonic refreshing finish. An odd beer, I think I’d like it better with a lighter more neutral malt base.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Shibuya Beer Terminal festival. Darker than I would have thought. Brown golden colour, small off-white head. Aroma is caramel and citrus. Quite unusual. Taste is similar, citrus to the front, but caramel sweetness coming up behind. Pretty weird, pretty nice.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Q-Brick.
Dark reddish amber with just a bit of lace. Pretty, glowing. Aroma of yuzu and freshly cut grass. Citrus hops. Nice nose. Yuzu big and dominant in the mouth. Too dominant. All that’s left is a bit of caramel. Somewhat flat, lackluster palate. A bit boring. Doesn’t live up to the nice nose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[2252-20090606] Sample. Earthy mushroom dirt aroma has an odd floral note. Hazy, dark amber orange body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. More mushroom dirt in the flavour with some smoky floral notes. Medium body. Very drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle at Mondial 2009. Tried a couple different Yuzu ales to try to figure out this fruit. Kinda like a lemon lime cross? THis is a slightly hazy medium coppery orange with a nice soapy white head. Aroma is citrusy kafir lime leaf, lemon zest, alligator pepper- lemon with spice, doughy crackery wheat. Flavor is more citrus, light sea salt, moderate caramel malts, overall light- crackery with some lemongrass as well- slight earthiness. Finish is light and refreshing- pretty good.
