2014 late summer review. On tap at Craft Beer Market Jimbocho. Cloudy golden orange color with huge off-white head. Big plum aroma with hints of orange zest, lime and other citrus. Plum, and slight biscuity malt tastes are present. Fairly sweet on the palate as it settles into room temperature. Thin body with watery mouthfeel. Floral and fruit notes remain throughout. beer-yum (1866) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 4, 2015
Restrained fruity aroma in a cloudy yellow gold pour. Mildly tart taste to start with a malt biscuit body to end. KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 6, 2013
A fruit beer made with plum. 5.5% a super cloudy straw gold with a fluffy white head & a fresh plum aroma. The flavor is a mild zesty plum but the mouthfeel is thin & a bit watery with low carbonation. Zesty citrus that mellows into plum. Decent but it needs a bit more body & carbonation. Near the end of my glass the sweetness was getting slightly cloying but overall very nice. BlackHaddock (7583) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2016
330ml bottle (bottled 20th June 2015) shared with a friend at home on 15th Aug 2016: so slightly out of date. Mini-haze to the golden yellow body, white head. fruity nose and taste with a citrus leaning. Easy drinking and fairly interesting. Sigmund (7830) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2010
633 ml bottle, as Baird Beer Japan Tale Ale 2009, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6%. Cloudy pale brownish yellow colour, big to moderate white head. Pleasant fruity aroma, notes of plums and citrus, also sweetish malts, hints of caramel and wood. The flavour is very fruity and fairly sweet, notes of plums and citrus again, with a mild spiciness in the finish.

Bottle. Hazy orange body with a fine off-white head. Aroma is light fruity like citric and fresh red berries with caramel. Flavor is sweet malty with fruit from both citric and red berries and a mild bitterness. The hop flavor is quite mild, but distinct and gets more present in the aftertaste. Quite pleasant, for me this is like a session beer with a gentle complexity that become more difficult to find after a few stronger beers. Geokkjer (7643) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 27, 2011

Draught at Barley.
Cloudy, muddy, light amber orange color with a nice, fine, frothy head. Grainy pils malt and sour ume aroma, with wheat. Sweet wheat malt flavor, lots of esters and fruit, ume and a touch of banana. Very creamy, lightly hopped with just a bit of bitterness. OK but rather boring and too sweet; slightly cloying with a strange yeast character.

Biggish offwhite head. Muddy yellow body. Medicinal strawberry and herbs aroma. Dry herbal mealy medicinal taste with fruity notes. Mild mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry mealy fruity aftertaste with herbal aroma. There is a very characteristic herbal taste in this, but I can’t identify it. Buttery feel lingers. Nice, but unremarkable. (0.63l bottle, Olympen, Oslo.)
