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.
