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.

3.4 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.

2009-06-06. Hazy orange amber body with a modest beige head. Fruit dominates the aroma aroma - presumably yuzu fruit? (6+) Flavour has similar fruity character, light bitterness. Fruit grows as you work through the glass. Smooth average to light palate. Interesting but just okay. Bottle at Mondial 2009, Montreal

Bottled. Hazy amber, creamy head. Hazy amber, creamy head. Lovely concentrated aroma of yuzy/tangerine. Sweet and light bodied with some surprising roasty notes coming through. The tangerine flavour is evident throughout, but never intrusive. Citric and mild, fresh, unusual and inviting.
