I really like this saison - a refreshing, tart and lively ale that goes down a treat with Japanese food. The yuzu fruit and peppery yeasts mingle well together and make for a delightful and fun beer to drink.

Poured a hazy yellow-brown color. Nice bananas, spice, pepper, cloves, and bready malts. A little over carbonated but otherwise tasty and easy to drink.

More like a Japanese version of a Belgian white than a real saison. Not much hop presence, but not too fruity either. I'm not sure what spices they used but you can taste and smell the citrusy yuzu. Very thirst quenching, great summer brew.
