shoulderbroken (1507) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 23, 2012
3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought at the brewery. Really watery pale blond colour with white bubbly head. Aroma is overwhelmingly pear, bit of candy-like sweetness too. But full on pear juice. Taste is similar, very much full on pear juice. Bit of wheatiness lurking in the background, maybe a bit of cherry there too. Light carbonation and fairly light-bodied. It’s quite nice, but more as a soft drink. Not very beer like. Just a little bit of boozy body at the finish, but not much. Pear juice in the foreground, kind of floury helles lurking very much in the background.
