2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
At World Craft Tasting 2013, Osaka. Ultra cloudy orange yellow color with a mixed tropical fruit juice aroma. Body is thin and somewhat bitter with cardboard notes as well as a juice flavor but not all that beer like. Another miss.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2013 Tap at Ushi Tora 2. Light orange colour, bubbly white head. Massive tropical fruit smell, passion fruit, mango, really lovely. Just a touch of spice/spike in the background. Little bit of funk too. Taste is lovely too. Tropical fruits, bit of sourness, candy sweetness, bit like those fruit salad sweets. Really easy drinking. Little carbonation but feels interesting in mouth. Enough sourness to keep it interesting. Smooth and medium bodied. Really very nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2012 Draught at Tadg’s. Cloudy golden, nice head. Aroma of honey, lemon, tropicl fruits, mainly pineapple, and a touch of funk. Interesting flavor. Starts out like pinapple juice, and is about to get amazingly sweet, it seems, when it is dried out with a big of funk. Yeast works like a funky saison or Biere de Garde. Still very fruity, tropical. The dirty yeast character balances the sweet fruit pretty well. A bit strange, but I think it works.
