wakatake-kajika.jpg

This was the first bottle drunk by the Shizuoka Geeks during their third tasting session.
It is a seasonal brew limited to 300 bottles every Autumn. Incidentally, until last year they did not bother to indicate the pronunciation of the Kanji « Kajika » (Bullhead Fish) in katakana under it. Obviously too many had been asked about this very unusual Kanji…
