COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tasting Notes Visual: Pale light yellow and cloudy with a creamy head.
Aroma: Fresh yuzu aroma is dominant, matching well with the yeast-derived phenolic aroma.
Flavor: Low-level malt and hop flavor, as well as a slight bitterness. Subtle fresh sour creates richness in taste.
Body: Full bodied, with a low level of natural carbonation that is created in the bottle-fermentation process and provides a very smooth drinking experience.

willisread (2018) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 23, 2016
Sampler at AEON Liquor Asagaya. Very big, juicy yuzu nose with some light citrusy notes. Really hides the abv well. Good carbonation with more yuzu on the palate, slightly pulpy in a good way. Herbal and peppery sansho finish but not overdone like so many sansho beers. Dry through and through. A really great wit.

330 ml. bottle sampled @ 20ste Zomerbierfestival. Made with yuzu. Hazy golden, little white head. Nose is odd, Vicks & lemon sweet with wheat. The yuzu I suppose. Taste is wheat, light banana, bit artificial-like with sugar, candy & lemon Vicks sweetness,… Sweet candy & wheat,… Overly sweet but okay.
