This wonderful fruit ales’ dark color (hazy russet) belies its light touch and unvarnished elegance. Small additions of highly roasted caramel and chocolate malts joined together with a complex mixture of base malt (Marris Otter, Canadian Wheat and German Munich) lay a rich but not overpowering platform of flavor. Upon this foundation, the freshly squeezed sour juice and outer peels of the daidai fruit perform acts of magic. Spicy and tart citric notes play the underlying malt sweetness like a maestro. The result is a sublime interplay of gracefulness and rusticity.
