Pours a muddy, cloudy brown color. Little head and no lace. Aroma of barley malt and musty sweet lemon. In the taste, brown sugar like caramelization, burnt toast, and small acidity. Sweet, caramelized wheat with a warming alcohol glow. Full bodied, smooth and rich. Drinks easily, an amazing beer. This beer was fermenting when Japan suffered the severe flooding from an earthquake that hit Japan in 2011, fermenting an additional 3 days and gaining strength and complexity.

Pours out a rich amber with a thin head. Smell is malty, caramel, a little oxidized (in a good way), nutty and bready. Flavor is caramel, bread, pear, cherry, mild hops in the finish. Finishes pretty dry. Reminds me of a really good amber biere de garde. Light acidity on the tongue. Carbonation pops and works with the light acid. Fairly light bodies, considering the rich taste. Overall this is a really solid, rare offering, and a little bit of history.

A - Pours with one finger of off white foam on top of a somewhat hazy, amber-brown body. The head fades quickly and leaves little lace on the glass.
S - Bready malt, red apple, and a bit of caramel and cinnamon.
T - Rich, toffee malt and licorice up front. Some red apple in the middle with caramel and more licorice in the finish.
M - Medium-thick body, moderate carbonation, and a slightly sweet finish.
D - Very interesting, this is not at all what I expected. I don't get the tartness I though would be here, but there is definitely some funk. Overall, it comes off something like an English Old ale of winter warmer with spices and complex fruity and toffee flavors.

Big thanks to newbrewbb for sharing this. Served in a tulip taster. Pours a beautiful amber hue with a translucent clarity and a dense, 3/4 inch, cream-colored head. Nose is a bit muddled - citrusy, grassy, fermented grains, some sweet notes and tart cherries. The flavor profile has a lot going on and makes it difficult to really nail down everything - sweet, tart, peppery, grassy and malty/caramely. Mouthfeel is medium-light in body with an even, lively carbonation, some astringency and a slightly oily texture. I can't really rate this to style because this beer tastes nothing like any witbier I've ever had. That said, a pretty interesting experiment due to happenstance. Not something I would seek out, but it might be interesting to see how it continues to develop with time.

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at drewone's place.
Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour and tart with some fruity and honey aromas. Taste is much the same with a tart apple and sake-like flavor on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with an interesting story behind it.

With this lactic acid, I thought it would be more of a wild ale, and why not. A constant lactic sourness that grows on me. In fact, nicely drinkable, also a little woody (I would like more of that) and a little spice (I would like more of that). Drunk fairly soon after arriving in the U.S. Premiere Gourmet.
