The Kiuchi brewery is producing some utterly delicious beers under the Hitachino Nest brand. And they’re also just so well packaged, with the distinctive owl logo. We’ve reviewed a couple of them in the past here. I had this beer at The Rake on Sunday evening.
Hitachino Nest Yuzu Saison du Japon
5% alcohol. Complex, textured with sweet textured, honeyed and a bit herbal with some nice tangy spiciness. Lovely intensity here- quite yeasty with some lemony freshness on the finish. Some toffee and malt in the mix, too. Distinctive and delicious. 9/10
