Anbai literally means “Salty Plum” and the word is also used to describe the stat of taste and flavor. Ii Anbai means “just right”!

Hitachino Nest Anbai Ale is brewed based on the high alcohol version (7%) of the siganture beer Hitachino Nest White Ale, infused with locally grown green sour plum (ume), and finished up with a pinch of Japanese sea salt (moshio). The balance of sourness, bitterness, comes from the plum and subtle saltiness, great umami taste of the sea salt is “Ii Anbai - just right!”

CObiased (544) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2017
Bottle - the pour on this is a mostly clear rich golden color (similar to apple juice) with a thin white head. The aroma is simple but malty, fruity and a hint of sour. Interesting flavor with sweet fruit and sour fruit notes, bready malt and a hint of salt.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5373) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2017
Tap sold by Maruho at Salt Valley’s Beer Zen Event. A cloudy pink orange with a thick beige head and an acidic plum flavor. Not much malts and the body is very light as well. Alright but kind of simplistic as well as more bittersour than sweetsour

jamaty (2257) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 13, 2017
Ambar turbia, de espuma poco duradera, dejando un aspecto sucio. Aroma a gengibre y naranja amarga, notas florales, miel. En boca el predominio es ácido, avinagrado, tapando casi todo lo demás, que es malteado y frutal con notas de melocotón más que ciruela. Amargor considerable, y final seco y salado. Extraña y algo difícil.

melush (4737) - SPAIN - JUL 6, 2017
33cl Bottle @ 3er Tiempo Tienda de Cervezas, Santander, Spain. Hazy amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, ripe fruit, sweet, tart. Taste is plum, sour, salty. Medium body, average to soft carbonation.

AssKicker (657) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - JUL 1, 2017
Bue à la pression. Couleur orangée opaque, mousse crémeuse et plutôt durable, nez fruité et un poil acidulé. En bouche on sent clairement la prune fermentée. Pas évident de détecter l’eau de mer, mais quand on le sait, ui on le ressent un peu en fin de bouche. Très bonne surprise.
