On tap for The Bruery Sucreversary held at The Phoenix Club in Anaheim, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, rice, fruit, and spice aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, rice, and spice flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

I’m starting to see this in more and more places. Pours a thin gold color with pale foaming. There’s a light, interesting aroma to it. The yuzu, perhaps? It’s crisp and sharply flavored, with what I imagine is a bit of rice mixing with the yuzu. Intensely dry. Exceeded my expectations and worth seeking out again.

i think this one is a collaboration with crooked stave. on tap at ernies, its a blonde beer brewed with rice and shiso, very cool. as distinct as the flavors are in it, what it lacks for me is any funk, which i though almanac and certainly crooked stave were known for. its a little bland honestly in the yeast department, but im not letting that detract from my overall enjoyment of this very interesting beer. i kind of wanted the shiso to be more robust, such a cool japanese herb, i think its flavor could have been more apparent, instead of just flashing in quick towards the finish. even still, its really cool to see a beer with it, the first that i am aware of to use it anyway. the beer is super light, only a little starchy from the rice, and clean finishing. its super easy drinking stuff, but i think would be twice the beer with some crazy brett complex.
