On tap at Yellow Ape Craft. A nice soba tea based ale, it poured gold and opaque. A decent ale with some yeast notes. Pretty good.

Draught at Tadg’s. Pretty, red-orange color with a very fine head. Nutty, fruity nose, cherry, some caramel. Sweet, nuytty flavor. Light citrus, cherry, a bit weird, but fruity and flavorful. I guess the nuttiness comes form the buckwheat tea, but there could be a bit more going on.
