Since its very beginning Aoi Brewing in shizuoka City has always been keen to create craft beers with local products!
The latest one is one made with lemons cultivated by an association of more 100 farmers in Kiyozawa, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City: Kiyozawa lemon Fruit Ale!
I actually met of of these farmers with their leader, Mr. Yukio Ozaki/尾崎行雄さん at Aoi Beer Stand in Shizuoka City!
Served on tap
Barley, Wheat, Pilsner malt (Germany), Wheat malt (Germany), Sapphire hop (Germany), Hallertau Blanc hop (Germany), Munich Classic yeast, glutinous starch syrup, Kiyozawa lemon peels and juice (grown in Shizuoka Prefecture)
ABV: 5.5 %
Production: 450 l
Bubbles: long head, very fine bubbles, creamy, white color
Color: lemon/orange color
Aroma: dry and fruity. Lemon, wheat.
Taste: very dry and fruity attack.
Lingers long enough for true tasting before departing on more notes of lemon.
Very soft and satisfying!
Varies little with food.
Overall: Softer than expected in spite of its dryness and very satisfying craft fruit beer!
Both ladies and gentlemen will appreciate it although the ladies seem not to get enough of it!
Recommended pairings: potato salad, nuts.
