In the glass Akari Shogun pours a hazy pale straw hue topped with a moderately retained fluffy white head. The nose carries elegant floral tones blossoming into a fruit salad arrangement of tangerine, apricot and peach while also boasting a sweet candied bubblegum. Seductive wheat sweetness and lemon citrus brightly tease the palate while tamed by assertive hop bitterness. Grass and rose petal sensations delicately join lemon and mango juiciness throughout the taste. The mildly lasting finish is semi-dry and allows the wheat notes to shine; refreshing and delicate enough on the palate to make this a perfect warm weather beverage.

Thanks to rainblows for hooking me up with this as an extra.
Appearance isn't too special, a somewhat hazy golden color. Looks good, but not amazing.
The nose crosses the line into special territory, bready, citrusy, summery, this brew smells amazing.
The taste follows the nose, light bready malts well blended with orange citrus and fresh cut grass.
Mouthfeel is smooth and spritzy at the same time.
On the whole, this is a world class brew. My expectations were non-existent, but this is great. On a whole different level than Gumballhead, which I previously thought was pretty solid.
