Yo-Ho Boku Beer Kimi Beer Aroma and Taste
For some reason, I poured Yo-Ho Boku Beer Kimi Beer into an IPA glass but the beer was a golden amber colour with a fair lacing of head. The aroma coming off ofYo-Ho Boku Beer Kimi Beer was potent; lovely notes of citrus and yeast wafted out along with a coriander-like aroma coming off too.
The funky frog, reminiscent of hypnotoad from Futurama, hypnotised me into writing such nice words about the aroma and being incredibly thirsty, the initial taste of Boku Beer Kimi Beer is sweet and tangy. It’s definitely a saison but much lighter than previous ones tried on BeerTengoku. The citrus aroma is still present, but more lemony and the spices finish off on the palate nicely. The tart aftertaste works well for it and leaves you wanting more.
