Once again Aoi Brewing in Shizuoka City has put out a fruit made with local products!
Aoishima (Onshu) Mikan Ale, that is a beer conceived with “Aoishima” mandarine oranges produced by farmers in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
This was the name announced in AOI BEER STAND in Shizuoka City, Aoi Ku, Miyuki Cho, but Mr. Taka, the brewmaster, told me it should have been named “Tekka Slight Mikan Ale”!
“Tekka” means that the oranges used were the ones pruned off when still green to allow chosen fruit to fully ripen!
Served on tap
Barley, Maris Otter malt, Munich Malt, Topaz hop, Czech Saaz hop, Aoishima mandarine oranges, live yeast.
Production: 450 liters
Bubbles: very fine bubbles. Longish head. Light orange color
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Color: light orange color
Aroma: dry and fruity. Dry mandarine oranges
Taste: very dry and fruity attack.
Dry oranges, citruses, hints of herbs.
Lingers long enough for true tasting with oranges staying true all the way and tending to depart on an even drier note with some welcome acidity.
Overall: a dry and fruity craft beer which will appeal to ladies in particular!
A craft beer for all seasons!
Very satisfying and a pleasure to sip. Dry but elegant!
Recommended pairings: pizza, potato salad, cold meats.
