Smell is sweet, fruity and tiny funky with pears in sugar syrup, biscuits, hay, dry soil, lemon zest, mandarin oranges, barnyard, honey, red apples, cloves, green grapes and plums. Taste is tiny sweet, slightly sour and fruity with plums, green grapes, honey, mandarin oranges, hay, dry soil, hay, orange peal, moist moss, pears, mandarin oranges, overripe red apples, alcohol and hints of cereal. Mouthfeel is smooth, round, very tiny tart, very tiny dry and medium bodied.

Bomber. Sampling session at Lefty’s. Yeast, stank, and honey nose. Cloudy medium straw. Honey, caramel, yeast / sweetish malt, some herbs, and some oxidation / finish is sweet and fairly smooth. Medium body. Herbal, overly sweet, and unusual. Nice enough. Bring on the broadswords!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Smells of honey. Light.
Tastes of Chinese medicine, watered down honey, Finishes with a taste that is Japanese arajio (a kind of salt that goes on red rice).
Very fun beer. Totally different.

At a tasting at KyotoLefty’s place. An opaque honey brown pour with a thick foamy head. The aroma is spicy, sour & honey. A medium body reveals a really interesting beer: fruity, honey, farmyard, salty goodness. Very nice & unique.

Bottle courtesy of khoffman. Cheers, Kyle! Pours a hazy yellow with a white sodalike head. Nose is big honey, some sugar cubes, dry yeast, floral notes, fruity esters. Flavor is similar with honey, spice, and fruit in the front followed by honey, sweetness, and yeast in the finish. Medium in body an interesting overall.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
[Bottle shared by Olvalde--thanks!] Pours amber with almost no head. Aroma is really, really nice. Big honey and white grape. Something hard to identify as well--blackberry? Great and unique. The taste is again big on white grape and really fruity. Some peach, green apple (not bad). Not as good as the aroma, but still good. Smooth, thin, and finish length is average. Really unique and enjoyable beer.
