At last the long-awaited Aoi Brewing Co. ‘s new fruit beer made with local oranges is available on tap at AOI BEER STAND, BEER GARAGE and Beer Junkies Motel in shizuoka City!
Suruga Elegant Ale!
Suruga Elegant are a variety of !Amanatsu” oranges grown in Shizuoka Prefecture.
Bear in mind that it is extremely limited:
only 2 barrels each at AOI BEER STAND and Beer Junkies Motel and 9 more at BEER GARAGE.
They won’t last until the end of the week, so hurry!
Served on tap
Barley, Maris Otter malt, Pilsner malt, Topaz hop, Willamette hop, Suruga Elegant oranges peels and juice live yeast
Bubbles: very fine bubbles Longish, white color
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Color: dark lemon/light orange color
Aroma: refreshing, dry oranges
Taste: very refreshing attack with beautiful and fruity acidity.
Complex. Oranges, lemon, orange peels.
Lingers long enough for true tasting before departing with more lemon and orange peels.
Stays true to first impression all the way through.
No need to drink it with food!
Overall: very refreshing and elegant (no pun!) fruit beer enhanced by beautiful acidity.
So easy to drink and the more for it that the alcohol content is moderate.
Will appeal to both genders at any tine of the day during the hotter days.
Pity that it is so limited in production!
Another craft beer to look forward to next year!
