Hazy golden color. Light fragerant nose. Peaches and a touch of ume tartness. Very idosynchractic. Very carbonated. Light plum finish. My friend said it got lost on him the complexity. I would have to agree. If you aren’t hard core about beer it would be hard to get. floydian1 (1478) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 20, 2015
330ml bottle as "Baird Beer Japan Tale Ale" (packaged on 20/6/15, label states ABV now 5%). Appears clear bright yellow with a small transient white head. Gets much cloudier with the yeasty sediments. Aroma is gently fruity with fresh green apples to the fore, pear, cereal malts and a subtle citric sourness. Palate is dry and fruity with a restrained sourness and low bitterness. Good refreshing quality with a lightish body and lively mouthfeel. A Berlinerweiss (with a touch of Kolsch) springs to mind. No complaints here.

Pours beautiful yellow, slightly hazy, bit of white foam. Aroma is fresh and fruity, ume (plum) is coming out but is not very strong, just enough to create that sour-fruity balance against grainy malt backbone. This is also reflected in taste, lots of ume fruit giving a bitor sour acidity and then everything succumbs to a soft malty finish and dry bready ume linger. Totally a summer beer. tiong (7513) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2017
330ml bottle. Slightly tart and fruity with hints of plum and funky yeastiness. Interesting. Capa (3395) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Nice looking hazy golden with a medium head. Light tart fruit, some hops, and a little malt. It’s nice, but I wish it was stronger. Flavor is similar, but rather weak, unfortunatly. Medium, well carbonated body. Baird produces some great beers and this one is almost one of them, but it’s a little on the weak side.

Bottle, 633ml, at Patricks. A hazy, yellowish golden beer topped by a small white head. Fruity nose, apricot and some perfumed notes. A bit sweet on the palate, medium body. Apricot, hints of cellar and not enough hops in the flavor. Apricot and malty sweetness in the finish. An easy drinkable beer that won’t exite or offend anyone. 100213 Davros (3258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2012
Pours very pale straw with a fading head.
Nose shows some funk and sweet stonefruit along with faint wheat.
Acidic flavours, but with doughy notes underneath and the faintest hint of more stonefruit. Very drinkable but not all that interesting.
Needs more carbonation. biirusaikou (2705) - - AUG 17, 2013
Plum aroma. Citrus and plum juice, sweet sour finish. Refreshing fruity ale, slightly too sweet. mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Draught at Goodbeer Faucets Hakata.
Hazy orange with a fluffy white head. Smells like plums, lime and grains. Tastes of tart fruit and sourdough with moderate carbonation. Pretty nice..
