Tap at CBM Koenji. Lots of orange in the aroma and initial taste, quite spritzy, almost like a soluble vitamin c tablet. Bit wheaty too. Pretty nice! Light sourness from the citrus. Liked this more than I expected.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2016 Tap re-rate for 2016 version. No skunkiness this time. Lots of zesty citrus. No sweetness. Tart and dry. Very nice fruit beer. Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a hazy gold with a minimal white head. Aromas of natsumikan, white grapfruit zest and pith on the nose with a little bit of skunk. Taste is all citrus. Soft carbonation with a juice-like mouthfeel. Not sweet at all. Light body with some honey on the palate. Refreshing but the skunk takes it down a few notches in my book.
