3.1/5  rDev -9.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Look: Cloudy apple juice.

Smell: Sweet, yet metallic.

Taste: The front taste is very much a sour beer. The beer finishes fruity, with a little bit of citrus rind (and still a little bit metallic).

Feel: Light.

Overall: It's an unremarkable beer, although the concept is interesting.

November 19, 2014

22 oz. bomber, pilsner glass

A – Medium straw to light yellow/gold, slightly hazy. Thin white head with low retention, leaving milky lace behind.

S – Lactic acid, sweet doughy malt, some strong fruit that I assume is the titular yuzu (nectarine?). Perhaps some green/white grapes. I get some pineapple and banana as well. The tart acidity is very up front though.

T – The lactobacillus is prominent but not particularly assertive, relatively mild for the style. Slightly puckering on the finish / in the aftertaste. Lemon-lime, banana, uncooked sourdough bread.

M – Slightly tart, a creamy, lightly milky feel to the body, presumably from the lactic acid. Enough carbonation to help clear the palate, with a lightly dry, barely puckery finish.

O – An Americanized version of Berliner weisse, so a relatively easy drinker. Interesting build, but in the end a bit unremarkable.
