KyotoLefty (10125) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 20, 2010
750 ml bottle. Slightly dark golden color with a foamy, pillowy head. Fruity, spicy aroma with honey and touches of green apple and grapefruit. Fruity, rich malt flavor with mandarin orange, honey, apple, rice, and pepper. Crisp, tangy, rather light in body and somewhat spritzy. An excellent saison. though I would prefer less rice, as its lingering after taste is unnecessary and takes away from the hops. It is there to make it more "Japanese," I guess.
