A - Loose white foam settles quickly with no lace. Great clarity on a bright yellow gold body.

S - White peach, honey, muscat grape gummies, sweet sticky rice.

T - Saki, rice wine, plum wine, white grape, rainier cherries, dry rice, soft wheat. A really interesting profile.

M - Opens bright and lightly boozy before long, lingering lightly dry finish. Medium frame. Nice carbonation.

O - Unique and well executed. With its distinct asian flair of sweet deserts and alcohols, this is a flavor profile that you're just not going to find anywhere else.

This beer was my first drain pour. The phenolic taste made it smell and taste like drinking band aids. I made it through about 4 ounces of this brew before I let her go down the drain. The appearence was nice and a well finished brew, but I couldn't get through the olafactory hues on this one.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a 3-inch white foamy head which leaves flocked lace. Interesting audible of bubbles popping in the glass.

N: Yeast, citrus, spices, floral, and fruity (peaches) layered and intertwinned.

T: Sake yeast imparts a unique profile along with the many spices combine with juicy citrus rind. Interesting and unusual.

M: Medium body and full carbonation. Bright and zesty yeast together with spicy citrus fruits make the finish memorable and enjoyable.

O: Creative use of sake yeast, spices and citrus zest.

A: poured a translucent pale golden yellow in color with a huge two finger bubbly head that left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: It definitely had the belgian yeast aroma coming out with some tart acidic citrus, a little herb and spice but with hints of sweet fruit as well.

T: the belgian yeast character was more apparent on the palate alongside some tart notes, acidic citrus, herbal accents, with a touch of kumquat fruit and was ever so slightly funky.

M: the brew was light in body with a lot of carbonation which had a yeasty, herbal, slightly fruity, spice and prickly finish.

O: not a bad herbal/spice beer and was not out of the ordinary collabing with the dogfish head guys.
