yuzu white

minohbeer (2) On the website of Minoh Beer, they had a seasonal beer made with local yuzu (citron).

A couple of months ago, I had asked a local liquor shop, if they were selling this beer and at that time, the owner said, "nope the season is over"...boo!

To my surprise though, I found it at Yamaya...woot!

minohbeer At first, I was kinda leery about trying this beer because the list of ingredients is malt, hops, yuzu peel and coriander.

But when I tasted it, I liked it. Refreshing and because they use real yuzu the flavor isn't fake.

I only wish that this beer wasn't seasonal because it would be nice during the summer, matching with a salad or something light, like a fish dish.

Still, I'm glad I got to try it.

I was going to say that with Yuzu in it, would be a great summer beer and very refreshing :)

The mention of coriander in that list sounded odd too but with a monkey on a bottle...how could anyone resist?

I was reading up on Belgian white beer Rowena, and they use citrus peels and spices :)

Take care.
