3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Mitsuya’s in Asagaya. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Cloudy tangerine orange color with a huge off-white soapy head and perfect lacing throughout. Strong aromas of apricot, marmalade, yeast, tang, wild-berry. Slight resiny bitterness on the palate that lingers wrapped in a marmalade tangy sweet stickiness. Leans toward the sweet side on the palate but that faint bitterness lingers on the palate. Nice medium dry finish that lingers. Very drinkable for the high alcohol percentage.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom’s place. Thanks Shumpi. Hazy golden with small yellowish head. The aroma is hoppy with notes of onion, some maltiness and citrus peels. Sweet-bitter flavor, notes of onion, very hoppy and "green" with notes of leaves, light maltiness and semi-dry finish. Lively carbonation, medium to full-bodied. Very nice
