3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Yellow APe. PRetty pale yellow color, closing in on pastel. Very big, fresh yuzu nose. Quite nice fruit character. Flavor also is pretty much just yuzu. A bit too light in body and flavor, and tasting nothing like beer. Nice refreshing summer drink though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from Tanakaya @ Meijro. Pours pale yellow, slight haziness but on the clear side. Small head that is gone in seconds. Aroma is very citrusy, just as smelling some kind of lemon drink. A sweet note of honey and some yuzu aromatics as well. Doesn’t really smell like beer. First taste has a bit of carbonation and maybe a pinch of malts - but other than that it feels like watery yuzu lemonade. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a tasty lemonade, doesn’t just feel like beer. Aftertaste rather dry, has a bit of malts and yuzu peels. On a hot day that would be good drink to have - but not really as a beer.
