Hazy golden and copper coloured body with a small, single to perhaps two centimetres tall off-white head. Aroma of plums, rice, grain, sour berries, light yeast and a dose of flowers and perfume. Light to Medium-bodied; Assertive grain and alcohol flavours at first with some plum, rice, earth and deeper malts along with some sour berries, yeast and sugar complexities. Aftertaste is fairly well balanced with a nice complexity of fruits, yeast and grain, while also showing sugars and a hint of sourness, mainly from the fruits, but also a touch from the yeast, it seems. Overall, I like what they did with this one and made it complex, yet approachable, and with specialty grains, but with enough ’traditional’ flavours. Good to sample and well worth finding if you like japanese or specialty grain-based beers. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Seattle (Westlake), Washington [State] on 18-February-2016 for US$8,99 sampled at home in [the real] Washington across this fine country on 07-July-2017. fonefan (51064) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2016

I want this to work but it just doesn’t. It smells bad it looks bad and it tastes bad. Its essentially a Budweiser with a tiny tart taste of plum. If you search real hard for it. Needs more plum!! explosivedog (1612) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 28, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2016 650ml bottle. Looks pretty bad, a hazy, off pink brown. Aroma is awful. Acid, and nothing else. Smells like a warm Budweiser, and it was served straight from the fridge. Flavour is better. Still Budweiser like but some plum too. Really not a good beer. McWorta (1633) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 2, 2016
Opaque quince colour with nearly no head. Aromas of straw, barnyard, light funk and floral plum juice develop. Soft carbonation, watery, lean body. Light sweet-sour. Short finish. sulawang (1197) - - AUG 16, 2016
Visual: Pours opaque cloudy marmalade orange with a smallish but ultra-long lasting "it’s alive"/nano foamy retention, all-encompassing clusters of active streams.daje (4535) - NORWAY - AUG 5, 2016
Nose: light plummy toasted barley malt with tang, farty barley malt (lvl-4)-pungency
Attack: slick-almost NO2 creamy, crisp
Mid-palate: tingly-tangy, (lvl-4-sweetness), light sour plum, background sweet barley malt, grainy earthy rice
Finish: plum tanginess, light pukey, a touch of saltiness, slight dry barley malt roughness, very subtle bitterness.
Summary: Lots of crispness in this one, balanced well with a tanginess that lays just beneath the fruity flavour, holding its hand along the way. Slight dry roughness at the finish but otherwise very drinkable, 7.5% ABV undetectable.
CBC 2016 Green session. Dark golden body, white head. Aroma of plums, grain, earth. Fruity yeast taste with grain and banana. Boozy finish with a sweet malt aftertaste. Forgettable.
