Enjoyed on tap at the Armsby Abbey. Poured into a stemmed tulip.

A - Poured a nearly lightly hazy rich golden hue with a thin one finger white head that leaves wonderful light lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of, well, the ocean and salt plums. Great fresh salt air with a sweet and sour plum thing going for it. Like taking a deep whiff from a bag of salted plums.

T - Taste is very clean. Great salty sweet going on. Wonderful salt water flavours, lightly mineral notes with a great sour and sweet plum going on. The plum works amazingly with the salt and really explodes on the pallet. Alcohol hidden very nicely.

M - Mouthfeel is great, super crisp and clean with no alcohol noticeable.

O - Overall this beer was just delicious. The salty sour sweet going on was incredible. Would love to get my hands on some bottles of this!

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.

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.
