Bottle bought in Japan(Seibu Department Store), poured into a goblet. Website says they make this Alt, a Weizen, and a Porter. A sake company that just started making beer recently.

A: Dark red, almost a light brown/tan color. Fizzy head that stuck around for a while.

S: Apple, dark fruits, grape, slight fig, sweet malts. Smells nice!

T: Apple starts it off, almost apple cider. Darker fruits are present in the middle along with a nice hop bite. The apple taste is again strong in the finish and sticks around for a while.

M: Quite carbonated but also has a heavy sweet feeling.

O: This is different and pretty damn good! The apple taste is one that I'm not used to but it really works well and the dark fruits are nice as well. A quality sipper!
