KansaiBeerLvrs (1978) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 10, 2014
On tap at the Kyoto Beer Fest 2014. Brewmaster was bafflingly popular at the event. A nice honey gold pour with a beige head that lingers and appetizing cabos fruit spritzy aroma. Medium bodied the taste is a bit cloying or medicinal fruitiness. Think some kind of citrusy sweet soda. Not really beer like & kind of cloying...

biirusaikou (630) - - OCT 7, 2013
Honey aroma. Sweet yuzu-like juice flavor. More of a fruit panache than a usual beer, but works quite well, and puts emphasis on nice local products.

sulawang (615) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2012
pours slightly cloudy marmalade orange, quickly dissipating head, minor ringed retention, lots of active CO2 streams, no lacing. Fruity orange/lemon scent. Drinks with thicker than water viscosity, instant bitter カボス peel up front, lime-lemon-yuzu like pulpy sweetness in the mid, 6/10 mellow honey sweetness until the off-dry 2/10 bitter finish. Lots of aromatic citrus fruit on the exhale. Medium-high complexity, med-high depth, excellent carry, silky mouthfeel, med-long length. Quite extraordinary for a fruity ale to have such depth, complexity, and balance.

thebeertourist (4793) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy pale yellow with a small, fast disappearing head. Overpowering lime aroma. Tastes like lime lemonade, though with a sweet and spicy honey tang. A refreshing and somewhat original lemonade, but very little beer character.

faroeviking (10290) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 7, 2009
Bottella. Cloudy deep amber colour, huge head. Bitter lemon and honey aroma, quite pleasant. Good filling mouthfeel. Bitter lemon sweet and dry honey flavour. Dry bitter lemon finish. Very nice indeed!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2009
Bottle @ Mondial 2009. Nose is funky. fruity and yeasty, opaque golden/orange, small off-white head. Taste is honey, malt and lemons. Light bodied, balance works quite well, pleasantly sweet and surprisingly drinkable. Really good!

KyotoLefty (6351) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle at the brewery. Very sweet honey and citrus balance. Very extreme flavors of the additives cover up what seems to be very mediocre beer. Bitter-sour finish is pretty nice. Sweet, fruity, rather pleasant drink, but not very beer-like.

chuwy (35) - JAPAN - JUL 18, 2008
Very sweet but the sweetness is balanced with the tartiness (is that a word?). Makes a good, lively and refreshing summer ale.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
Bottle. Bought at Takanaya Liquor Store. Magnificent! Sweet and very fruity in flavor - like a whole truck of apricots (or whatever) got dumped into the barrel. One of the best japanese beers Ive ever had. Could be grapefrults? No matter. Bit cloudy and bronze. 5 stars!
