Draught at Hachi. Rich sour plum profile, lemon tart, funky spice, dry salty finish. Very tasty stuff, too bad it’s not more widely available in Japan.

Tap (Pudel, Tallinn, Hitachino Tap Takeover)
Lovely aroma, a strange christmas cakey spicy fruitiness, but there’s more than that. Some bretty barrel funky hints too. Peachy colour, brief head. Slightly thin palate, some slight smoothness, but the carbonation and salt give it a crispness too. Taste not up to the challenge, it’s basically a sweaty funky sour. Some slight lambicky retronasals, more brett than lacto. Finish sweet and malty, bready, then back to a slight funk again. Interesting one. No sign of alcohol at all, could be dangerous for a sour beer fan!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Pours nice golden, not much foam there. Aroma is nicely tangy, some sourness there but in a balanced way. Taste has this distinctive plum character, some umeboshi! Slat does not come out and I guess that’s a good thing for me. Nice interesting beer, sour but not too sour, flavourful and totally enjoyable.

5 oz. draft at Tørst in Brooklyn, New York. The pour is a hazed orange with a small white head. The aroma is softly tart, floral and a bit of medicinal yeast. The taste is plum fruit, herbal, and a light citrus tart and grass in the back. As the beer warms a kind of a salt tart flavor. Soft and beautifully integrated flavors. The palate is light to medium bodied with natural carbonation and a soft lingering finish of tart and grass. Unique, really tasty.
