2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2013 Smells like a cross between Pampers and sweet grapefruit juice. Taste is actually pretty nice - a tart wheat beer.

Draft. Strange straw yellowish color, with a small head. Fruity, light tartness, wheat, sweet, off-ripe fruit, and a bit of citrus. Tastes like a weird dipping sauce that you could get at an Asian restaurant. Not very enjoyable to drink.

Not quite as extreme as I was expecting. It certainly leans towards the wheat side. Thereís a hint of tartness in the aroma but the taste is relatively smooth & clean. Canít believe this is 8%. Not bad but not great either!

pours a semi-clear pale yellow with a medium size white head, and very good lacing.
smell is of tropical fruit, some wheat, earth, floral, and citrus.
taste is slightly tart and oily, dirt, fruits, some sweetness comes in from the back, wheat, and citrus. ends on the sour side.

Bottle, from.....the beer dispensary or bottle revolution, I forget. Good aroma, sweet and funky. Clean greenish gold color, small head that faded quick, no lace. Sour flavor. Light body, thin smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation, sweet-sour finish. Interesting. Canít say it wows me, but Iím liking it as I drink it. Aroma has nice sweet sour mix, as does flavor. Appearance drags it down a little.

From 22oz bottle to a chalice, closest thing I had to a bowl. Pour is a vibrant gold, thin fizzy head. Nose is odd, kind of citrusy, just a touch of hop. Taste is sweet, light Bodied. High carbonation, but it goes with the style. I know the yuzu fruit is oriental, definitely not trained to taste this one. However it is unique, hats off to NB for pushing the boundaries, wouldnít expect anything less out of such a solid brewery. Would love to try more yuzu in whatever form to really appreciate this beer.

Straw pour. Thin head.
Aroma is lemon and what I assume is yuzu. Light wheat.
Flavour is citrus, somewhat tropical. Light wheat yeast spice. Imperial Berliner doesn't work. Alc presence dampens palate. Negates tartness for me.

Murky yellow with nice lacing. Sour lemon and banana aroma. Slightly sweet and sour taste but less intense than the aroma. Decent.

Draft at the hub at DEN. Pours a clear golden color with a gentle, white laced head. Light, spring citrus aroma with a nice sense of lemon zest. Light, wheat taste with some lemon and pineapple. Really canít tell that it is an 8% beer. Smooth finish. Very easy to drink.
