3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2015 Draft at Tadg. Crazy aroma of yuzu, very fresh. Yuzu hits you immediately when you taste and has a wonderful bitterness from the fruit.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Keyaki Spring 2015. Hash gold color with a modest white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Nice light yuzu aromas with some grain, orange zest and lemon. Well-balanced on the palate. Great malt backbone and it tastes like beer and not yuzu juice. Very nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at BEERNISTA TOKYO 2015. Pours slightly cloudy yellow, nice top at first but comes down soon. I was expecting more yuzu from the aroma but actually it is quite subdued - but definitely there, nicely balanced. Taste has ore of the yuzu esters, making this beer very fresh and easily drinkable. Again, was nicely surprised with this one.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Beer Stand Molto! Clean fresh citrusy nose, zest, and fairly strong hopping. Clear golden sraw. Decent sour citrus bittering (from zest or hops), thin maltiness, and long bitter tracks in the finish. Thin, with some body from hops. Pleasant, very light. The yuzu definitely dominates.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Molto, Osaka. Clear dark gold, with a fine, creamy, short-lived head. Not much aroma- definitely some yuzu in there, but also some sweet malt enveloping it. Delicate palate, quite fine. Yuzu flavour is delicate, and has a sweet finish. Some bubblegum, cream too. Could use a little more bitterness, but rather polished nonetheless.

Draft - Yuzu and very little else on the nose. Clear gold with a thin white head. Lots of Yuzu again with a citrus bitterness. Nice and refreshing, like a Radler. Not very exciting though.
