In Japanese, "Bureiko Jikan" is the time when the chains of hierarchy and conformity break away and real feelings, without the threat of recrimination, get expressed. This is an occasion normally facilitated by an alcohol lubricant. Baird Beers contribution to the facilitation of this important moment comes in the form of a dangerously quaffable, fruitily robust and outrageously delicious Belgian-inspired golden ale. A Belgian-style golden ale is a beer typified by the following: magnificent golden hue, spritzy fruitiness, champagne-like natural carbonation, and a dry, cleansing alcohol accented finish. The granddaddy of all Belgian golden ales is, of course, Duvel (a beer close to our heart). This beer represents our starting point. A tradition of originality, though, resonates in Belgian brewing history and we are not slavish imitators at Baird Beer. The chief difference between a Belgian golden ale and Baird Bureiko Jikan Golden Ale resides in yeast and hop usage: whereas the defining character of the former stems from the yeast, the characteristic essence of Bureiko Jikan is derived from the hops (ample quantities of noble-type American hops).

Tap at Tir Na n-Og. Sweet, aroma is boozy, yeasty, not so Belgian, but cakey, maybe quad like aroma. Taste is sweet again, cakey again, not so hoppy. Feel the booze further down. Apples. Dough. Interesting, but not sure about it.

베어드 브루어리 - 브레이코 지칸 골든에일 9% ABV 여러 단계의 다양한 맛이 입에 넣은 순간 부터 켜켜이 쌓여 하나하나 풀어가는 재미가 있는 서머시즈널.무& 가벼움이 공존하는 이중주. 지비루의 좋은 도전 골든 에일이기엔 지나치게 어두운 색깔,서머시즈& 지나치게 높은 도수.무거운 한약재 풍의 단맛,혀뿌리의 시큰거림을 지나 홉의 어텍을 너머 날렵하게 입안을 날아오르는 화한 기운. 싸한 마무리는 더운 하루를 보낸 뒤 맞는,시원한 여름 밤에 관한 오마주

On tap at Naka-Meguro Taproom spring 2014. Served in a tulip. Hazy orange with a small off-white head. Big aromas of apple, peach and pear with a hint of corriander. Sweet and dry on the palate with a bit of pepper. Spritzy and refreshing with alcohol noticeable on the finish. Overall fruity with nice hop balance...leans toward the sweet side.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep golden, nice head. Mild malty aroma. Starts mild, malty-spicy, some sweetish notes, more and more fruity with notes of peaches. Well balanced finish. Nice!

Keg at the Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2014, red session. 03/05/2014. Golden orange coloured pour with a light white fluffy head. Aroma is honey, lewather and light smoke. Flavour isclean, caramel and nutty malt. Palate is somewhat thin, semi-sweet. Pretty boring tbh./

Draught @CBC2014. Pours clear orange with a minimal head. Aroma is fruit, flowery, dextrose, honey, grain. Taste is light+ sweet and bitter. Body is light+, texture is oily, carbonation is moderate. Disappointing.
