Draught at Faucets, Tokyo. Orange colour with a white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pineapple, spicy. Flavour is also tropical fruits, some bitterness. Travlr (24741) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Draft at Faucets. Cloudy golden color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of grass and anise. Taste is lemon and straw. TimE (5816) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 25, 2013
light orange color. Very tart, light nose of yuzu, pepper and oddly it seems like a touch of cayenne pepper. Light mouth, very dry, tons of yuzu and pepper. Über well balanced - if you can say that. Superbly executed. Dry yuzu finish. Nothing shirt of awesome KyotoLefty (10254) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2013
Draught at Bashamichi, then at Tadgs. Huge citrus fruit nose. Juice and some zest. A bit of spice and something bready, but really mostly citrus. Flavor also tart, rather dry citrus. Refreshing and tasty, but not as beer-like as I would wish. A few of us were sitting around thinking it tasted more like cider. Crisp and tasty, though, and very refreshing. The idea of blending those 5 kinds of citrus didn’t really make sense to me. There’s no way to sort out the flavors.

On tap at Tadg’s. It poured an orange-gold color with minimal head and the aroma was not so strong (maybe it was served too cold?). I got some spicy notes of coriander or thyme followed by a complex citrus bouquet which became more pronounced as the beer warmed up. It was incredibly easy to drink and my favorite beer of the night, a nice balance between citrus fruit and hops making it a pleasent beer! shoulderbroken (4255) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 9, 2013
Tap at Craft Beer Market. I quite liked this unlike Jonno! Pale orange amber colour with small white head. Aroma is very fruity, slightly tropical, pineapple, bit creamy. Taste is nice fruity again, strawberry maybe, tropical, nice bitterness, not too much, but just enough. Tastes a bit like fruit juice mixed with a Pale Ale, which to some probably sounds horrible, but I quite liked it. Very easy drinking. jonno (2761) - JAPAN - MAR 9, 2013
An everything but the kitchen sink approach like this can come to together, but generally it leaves a beer in search of an identity. This is one such case. Tart, fruity nose with some brown sugar. Lemon, yuzu, well just lots of tart citrus and the brown sugar. slightly phenolic. Has a ’just picked a citrus fruit off a tree and juiced it before adding it to my beer’ vibe running through it’s core.
