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!

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.
