Saw TURD’s rating so decided to grab some while I could. Pours a bright pale yellow with a generous white head. Nose is bitter orange, very fragrant and floral. Notes of mandarin orange and lemon. Dry and slightly grassy/hay-like. Really light, refreshing, and unique. Loved it.
Pours a hazy yellow straw with a fizzy steady white head. Nose is fresh citrus-clementine, grapefruit, lemon, very juicy, dry, light grass, and hay. Flavor brings the citrus as well-I quite enjoy the Yuzu--and unlike other fruity beers, it’s fresh and not overly used so the gentle hop and bready malt character of the base golden ale remain and perhaps even enhanced by the Yuzu. Tried to get a growler of this but it’s too small of a batch. Bartender thought the abv was 5ish.
