We have added light-tasting wheat malt to rich barley malt, then aged this beer in cedar casks in following the ancient Japanese brewing technique.

KyotoLefty (7232) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle from Shinjuku Isetan. Bright, lemony yellow color, with interesting depth. Slightly lighter than the usual. Lemony aroma, less fragrant than the regular, drier, with a bit of horse blanket and just a touch of banana. Tart, lemony flavor with barckground bananas and cloves. Slighty like a wit, with a slight lambic quality as well. Cedar taste comes through clearly without overpowering. Finish is quite bitter. Amazingly refreshing and very original. Great stuff, with pronounced barrel-aged character. Wish it was more widely available.
