On tap at Mondial de la Biere. This is a buckwheat beer made with green tea.

Cloudy yellow pour with a bone-white head and chunks of lace. Clean nose, with lots of cereal and sweet green tea. Nice cereal dominated flavour has a similar profile to a helles, but with mild tea-like notes from the ocha. Certainly toasty and it reminded me of the tea I had in japan that had toasted rice added to it. Soft mouthfeel worked well.

A simple beer, but enjoyable and a nice change of pace. DDC really like their Japanese friends.

On tap at Mondial.

Pours a cloudy yellow, some very light golden highlights, thick white head forms, settles down to a thick ring of lace chunks.

Smell is nice, lots of green tea, sencha, toasty, weird and fruity, pretty interesting malt character, grassy and herbal from tea, vanilla, limes, neat.

Taste is similar, a bit sweet up front, honey and tea, sencha, very very toasty in the middle, nice and malty, fruity, interesting spice character, more tea, bitter and herbal in the finish.

Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty neat idea, I dug it.

Made with sarrazin, or buckwheat. Neat.

This beer appears a hazy medium straw colour, with two fingers of soapy white head, that leaves sparse lace as it melts away. It smells like my mom's dark cocoa fruit clusters - dry cocoa, apricots, and dates. The taste is musty fruit, flowery tea leaves, and earthy hops. The carbonation is mild, the body is smooth and a little creamy, and it finishes dry, with floral, rootsy essences lingering.

An interesting experiment, and new flavours for me in a beer. Good stuff.

Enjoyed on-tap at the brewpub, pre-Japon(French spelling) night. A buckwheat beer with Japanese tea. Very light taste, to me not even as tasty as a really good Japanese green. However, delicate and something I would have on a summer day when I was just having something sessionable.
