COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Yuzu is a strange fruit- citrusy and bold. Those three words: strange, citrus and bold are the perfect beginnings for a great beer. So, our brewers paired yuzu with the sourness of a Berlinerweiss to create this beerlicious Yuzu Berlinerweiss. Brewed with pale malt and wheat this Berlinerwiess was acidified with Lactobacillus for a light, dry mouthfeel and tart refreshment. Hazy and straw-colored, the yuzu fruit brings a tropical charm to a traditional beer.

Clear yellow with a light head. Weird mouth feel with hay and citrus up front and a hollow feeling at the end. Interesting beer.

wxman (1713) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2015
On tap at Peel Pizza. Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a small but persistent white head. Aroma is lemon and spice. Taste is sweet pale malt, lemon pudding, some bread dough, very mild tartness, thin texture and mouthfeel, smooth and pleasant. Sweeter and much less tart than a true Berliner weisse, but quite good and very drinkable.

AwaKe (212) - Laval, CANADA - NOV 9, 2015
En bouteille. Couleur blonde limpide avec mousse blanche très aérienne. Arômes similaire à une gueuze, pommes vertes, eau salé, barrique. Goût citroné, yuzu, acidité assez faible mais effervescence elevée. Petit goût salé avec amertume d’écorce de citron. Palais faible. C’est bon mais rien pour venir fou...

December 27th, 2013 - Yuzu is one of my favorite Japanese flavors, and so much so that it might trump the usual gaijin’s obsession with green tea and matcha. My favorite manifestation is in ramen (served near Harajuku station) but I can see where it might play well with beer. Optimism high, I poured out this next brew in the Lips of Faith series, kicking up a huge corky head over hovering over a slowly circulating golden body. Once that wall of bubbles died down I began to sense a smell like a Berlinerweisse, composed of lemon, butter, dandelion, pear, and pastry dough. It’s sweet, but dry at the same time, like a Prosecco, with a more pointed citrus character. True to form, the palate is light and fluffy, and the first crash of the flavor reminds me of ponzu, or other kinds of gyoza dipping sauce. This couldn’t be more spot on with my expectations, and while I’m sure this falls short on technical points, that curious Zuzu taste of lemon and orange with a short aftertaste and a touch of booze is exactly how I imagined a yuzu beer would come to be.

KyotoLefty (8924) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 27, 2015
Tap at Biertempel. Funky yuzu nose, light yogurt, cream, lemon, acid. Cloudy, glowing gold, fine head. Bit yuzu is pretty nice, then brett, some lactic acid, wheat. Not all that impressive, but ok. Maybe needs more time to let enbrett work more. Sweet, unbalanced.
