Ordered 11.2 oz bottle at Taste Restaurant in Broad Ripple.
Poured into a Burgundy wine glass.
A: A fragrant, sweet, tart aroma with hints of strawberry, peach, rose, white grape juice, and a very light hint of funk.
A: Pours a thick, opaque, rose, with a tinge of orange. No real head to speak of, but the color is very nice.
F: Sweet strawberry, rose water, peach, and a very light citrus tartness, which is all balanced by an underlying soft bitterness. Very tasty!
M: Medium-full, almost nectar-like body. Medium-low carbonation.
O: Finally--a Kiuchi beer that I enjoy! I don't know whether I've gotten unlucky with bad/old bottles up until now, but I did not enjoy their White Ale, Espresso Stout, or Sweet Stout. I'm really glad I gave this one a shot, though. Very tasty, and well-balanced! A great beer to try if you're wanting something a bit different.
