3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ El Pato, Koenji, Tokyo, and a few days later bottled (tanks to TimE). Pale blonde color, hazy. Dense white head. Aroma’s: earthy and flowery hops, a little sweet malts. Retronasal there’s additionally grain and some fruit (citrus). Flavor grainy, slightly sweet/malty and fruity. Medium bodied. Dry and rather bitter finish. Good!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Yamaoka. Fresh, zesty aroma of citrus, some nice background hops. Medium carbonation. Fairly high alcohol well hidden. Not sour enough to be in saison territory, but refreshing nonetheless. Not very complex, but does what it has to do quite well.

Light sweet malt nose. Nice spicy citrus taste, smooth refreshing drink, but a bit one-dimentional.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Popeye. Surprised I have never rated this. Pale blond, small off-white head. Aroma is a bit weak, lightly fruity and bit grainy. Taste is nice. Hints of tropical fruit, quite dry. Slightly floral too. Herbal crispness. Pretty damn good. Very refreshing after an imperial stout.
