3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a lot gaijin on here unfortunately. Not really wild, funky or weird. Itís a straight forward ale looking for some personality. A touch saisonesque, but really pretty uneventful.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Yamaoka. Cloudy gold, slightly pastel, huge airy head. Crazy nose: citrus, yogurt, grass, dust. Sweet, fruity, funky flavor, with lemon, honey, yogurt, dust. Spicy, yeast, Belgian like. Dry finish. Saison-like, funky barnyard. Very fruity, light acidity. Dry finish with sweet fruity mid-palate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium white head. Slightly hazy coppery body with carbonation. Fruity vinegary aroma with mealy notes. Dry-sweetish, and faintly acidic, intensely fruity (persimmon?) taste with mealy notes. Mid-to-light body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry-acidic orangey tropical fruit aftertaste with mealy metallic notes. Lovely! Well-balanced and harmonic, and very drinkable. The acdity is very subtle for a lambic, I must say. Whether you can taste the persimmon or not I canít say, having never tasted a persimmon. (0.35l draft at brewery.)
