A refreshing white ale, crisp and citrusy. Great specimen of wit character. Cool to see craft beers this good coming out of Japan.

Not a lot of head, and didn't last too long. But it was very drinkable and made me want another, immediately. Great summer beer.

This is a great spiced/flavored beer. It has an unfiltered appearance and yeasty smell. The orange and allspice hits you right away and there are yeasty after-notes. It has a thick mouth feel and smooth finish. No harsh aftertaste and very little carbonation. This is a very pleasant spring/summer beer and one that will definitely find it's way into my fridge more often.

Pours a nice fairly cloudy amber with a decent head that quickly dissipates. Nice aromatic smell that is slightly sweet and very clean. Nice taste that is also slightly sweet. I really enjoyed the smell the best. Fantastic. A very easy beer to drink with lots of flavor.
