3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Made in Oregon. Against strong light the pour is dark ruddy copper with a beige head. Aroma is berry. Neither red nor blue nor black. Nor straw. But clearly berry. Med + body. Flavor is berry (see supra), with honey aspects and some malt. It’s not exactly dry, nor is it exactly bitter, but it contends for those positions. Making me think of graham crackers and jelly. Weird that.

Tap at Bakushu Club Popeye, Tokyo. Dark reddish shade. Very small head. An interesting candyish, bubblegum-like fruity aroma. Blueberry perhaps comes to mind the most. Nice combination of honey, fruit and malt in the taste, and a touch of smokiness. This is decent but I wanted everything to pop that bit more.
