3.85/5  rDev n/a

Adequate copper with an unremarkable head. Decent appearance. A hard case for good, given the just-above-average looks.

Significantly different from the standard yona-yona in smell and taste. It's a little maltier and stronger. Sweeter overall.

Crisp and clean with an amazing balance. Jeez, this is a real craft brew! Very much a welcome change of pace from the old stand-by Yona! Get this!

On tap at Club Popeye in Tokyo. Copper body with a good finger of white head that left a reasobale amount of lacing. Nice sweet malty aroma, with an indistinct fruitiness. Sweet fruity malts and caramel transitioning to a grapefruit bitterness. Nice floral hopping throughout, and excellent balance. Medium body and low carbonation. Excellent beer!
