On tap at the Thirsty Monk (AVL).
Slighty hazy amber body with a weak head.
Mildly funky and fruity aroma; moderately floral.
Flavor. Medium-low tartness and bitterness; lightly salty. Interesting, with an unexpected slight funk. (234 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured a gorgeous cloudy golden color with a thin white head that dissipated quickly leaving little lacing. Quite nice looking. Scents of fruity esters, ume plums, salt water and apricot. Very nice, crisp and inviting, not overly complex, but very reminiscent of umeboshi. Taste begins with flavors of apricot, ume plum and a nice fruity sourness. In the middle sourness increases and a pleasant undercurrent of salt water appears. The finish is sour ume plum, salt water and a hint of grainy malt. Aftertaste is sour with grainy malt and salty undertones. A very refreshing flavor that combines ume a and other fruit flavors with salt and sour and a hint of grain. Very well done. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation and a wet, juicy feel. Very light and refreshing. Excellent. Overall this is an excellent ale, though I cannot rightly compare it to other goses. What it is, is a nice, refreshing ale with a nice, uniquely Japanese flavor. I recommend it. (972 characters)

Well gotdamn! If anyone can make plum liquor it's the Japanese, says I upon ordering this. It's delish!

A- cloudy straw brown that picks up the light well.

S- the first and possibly only smell I get is ocean salt. It's sharp and short and would probably be nice if it weren't raining outside, but I don't want to smell the ocean right now. This beer is laughing at me.

T- this beer shines on flavor. It's the beer it is with plum and salt. It tastes like that. It tastes like a privilege. Good.

M- balanced, salty.

O- my wife tasted this beer and just said it tastes weird. Anyway. I like it. It's sour sweet and salty. Give it a try if you are fortunate enough to come across this unique brew from what must be Japan's most prestigious craft brewery. (761 characters)

On tap

A- pours a hazy golden with a small creamy white head, good retention, leaving some lacing behind

S- sweet plumb aroma up front with notes of toasted wheat, salty

T- on of the sweeter goes that I've tried, the plumbs are really prominent and refreshing, salty mid-palate with a crisp toasted wheat finish

M- medium body with low carbonation leads to a slightly foamy mouthfeel that continues to the finish

O- a different take on the style that is sweet, salty and refreshing (487 characters)
