3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 11.2 oz bottle at Uchi, Houston, 12/9/13
Aroma: The nose is spice (coriander and others) and wheat, Belgian yeast, and citrus rind
Appearance: Pours a hazy orange color with a foamy white head and some decent lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same with a mid-plus sweetness, spice, and mild bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, pretty easy drinking, with a pleasant mouthfeel
Surprised I’ve never rated this before. This is a pretty solid example of the style. A light easy drinking one, but not a watery one. Plenty decent.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light orange to yellow. No head. Citrus and wheat aroma, and hints of cereal (Honeypuffs). Sweet and sour taste, very little bitter, only in the aftertaste. Light body and sour-like, lively texture. Decent made beer, and nothing technically wrong with it, but wouldn’t recommend it. My friend picked up notes of coriander, which wasn’t to her liking.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hitachino Nest has a pretty thick, foamy collar, a very hazy, bubbly, yellow appearance, with thick lacing, and a descending yellow cloud, once the bottom contents are swished and poured. The aroma is of strong, pungent, sweet, spicy, citrusy, malts, and the flavor is of those elements, with an overriding orange juice component and a background of coriander. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Hitachino Nest finishes semi-dry, refreshing, sweet, and very easy going. Overall, this is most excellent and maybe the best of the style. Check it out! RJT
