3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fra fat på Cardinals enestående Brewers’ Night: en spennende mix av mørke maltsmaker, kaffe, appelsin, vanlije, mandarin og mye mer. Medium tørr og humlene surrer diskret i bakgrunnen. Stor og kompleks smak for bare 6 vitaminenheter. Yuzu er iflg Wikipedia en citrusfrukt fra det fjerne Østen, som ser ut og smaker som en mellomting mellom grapefrukt og mandarin.
