Aoi Brewing Owner Naoki Mando in center and Master Brewer Kooichi Taka on the right!
Yesterday I had the opportunity to taste the brand new limited craft beer, Geppaku Fuusei Ale, 2016 version, by Aoi Brewing In Shizuoka City!
It is a French Saison ale type craft beer!
Served on tap
Barley and wheat, Pilsner Malt (Germany), Wheat malt (Germany), Opal hop (Germany) Perle hop (Germany), coriander, nutmeg, orange peels, lemon peels, clove, French saison yeast
Alcohol/ABV: 5.5 degrees
Production: 450 l
Bubbles: Longish head, very fine bubbles, white color
Color: smoky lemon/orange color
Aroma: dry and fruity. Citruses
Taste: very dry, spicy and fruity attack backed up with some pleasant acidity.
Complex. citruses, lemon, coriander,cloves.
Lingers long enough for true tasting before departing on notes of dry lemon and dry spices, especially cloves.
Dry nuts will appear on the late.
Varies little with food.
Overall: great summer ale craft beer!
Very complex, fruity and spicy with a marked dryness.
Its sharpness makes it a very welcome beer in hot summer!
Will please both genders at any time of the day!
Suggested pairings: nuts, cold meats, pickles.

Reblogged this on Chef Ceaser.
As you know, Sweden has strict alchol laws so even Saki used for cooking is sold in the government store. If your friends can produce an alcohol free Saki, then you would have quite a market here. The alcohol free wines sell at a reduced price here and Saki would enjoy the same privileges. I have contacts with importers in case you find interest.

The only non-alcohol sake (saki) is amazake, that is a drink made from sake white lees with no alcohol left. It is drunk hot so it might interest Swedes in winter as even kids drink it in Japan.
What do you think?
