3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keyaki fall 2016. Malt-forward nose with a touch of plum as it warms up. Lots of caramel malt with some plum in the background. Can’t find the salt under all the malt. Sweet more than tart. Feels heavy and syrupy.

Thx to jtclockwork / Ferris. Aroma is tasty - Ferris says salty plum and that’s pretty accurate. Moderate plummy sweetness, moderately tart. Light body, lively carb. Nice beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl. bottle. Orange-amber body is mostly clear and has some nice bubbly activity that maintains an eighth-inch sponge of foam on top. Nose is mixed stone fruits (peach, plum, apricot), flowery honey, spicy yeast and a recurring mineral water note. Flavors of honey, tart bittersweet fruit and spicy yeast. There’s a pleasant salted caramel note developing in the long finish after a while, but don’t know that I’d have identified the saltiness without reading about it first. Near-medium body has medium-high carbonation, no sign of the 7.5% and an easy drinking balance from many directions. Nice springtime brew with some interesting flavor progressions going on.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz bottle. Murky, unfiltered dulled orange-tan body. Thin, patchy, white head. Pleasant sour green plum notes in the aroma. Certainly a Fruit Beer, I was secretly hoping for a Gose with the sea salt. Delicate, light and fluffy mouthfeel. The malt, yeast, and plum interplay is surprisingly nice and works well. Almost has a faint gingery edge to it, orange peel maybe. The malts are understated, and there is a soft earthy pear undertone as well. Very unique offering, well made.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma - very faint just a little Belgian yeast qualities
Appearance - body is a cloudy straw yellow. The white head is about 1/3" and settles very slowly.
Taste - a little sour, somewhat salty, there is a fruit element as well some raisin. A bit of Belgian like yeast.
Palate - body is approaching medium, texture is smooth, carbonation lively, and a nice salted finish.

This is surprisingly great. Slightly bitter/sour, but not tart or acidic. Fuity (plums I suppose as the name suggests) The saltiness is apparent, but I think that is only because I was specifically looking for it. Not sure if I would have picked it out otherwise. Really good though.
