Loved this one-off from my hometown heros. Cloudy orange, smells like limes. Creamy body from the firkin, low carbonation. Smells amazing, like a citrus grove. Bone dry, very lime forward, some lemon, Lee said he used Meyer lemons and limes. This beer takes the dry, citrusy aspects of Akari Shogun and amplifies all the best parts. Great idea. Lee says he’d add less citrus and more hops, but I can’t think of a better brew for a hot day. Again: brilliant idea.

Gravity pour for Firkin Friday. Served in a 13oz snifter.
A - White foam settles to a thin cap, thick collar, and splotches of lace. Murky orange-yellow body.
S - The name Akari Mist is quite appropriate, as this really does a Sierra Mist vibe to it. Lots of sweet lime and Meyer lemon in the aroma, with some similarly zesty citrus from the Motueka hops. Backed up by a sweet pale malt and a mild vanilla backdrop.
T - The taste has a bit more of the wheat and pale malt character from the base beer, with the lemons and limes mixed among the zesty Motueka hops. Lightly tart and sour lime note in the finish.
M - Medium body, lower cask-style carbonation, slightly tannic texture, and a dry finish.
D - Very nice twist on a beer I already liked quite a bit. Really drinkable, and well-conceived, as the fruit integrates extremely well with the hop character. Half Acre is quickly becoming my favorite local cask brewery. Hope they do this again, particularly on a hot summer Friday.
