Baird Bureiko Jikan Strong Golden Ale is a Belgian strong ale spring seasonal beer from Baird Beer. Spring time is usually associated with new workers joining companies in Japan and drinking parties where workers can relax. Baird Bureiko Jikan Strong Golden Ale is a homage to parties across Japan where the employer and employee relationship is broken during drinking sessions where everything is forgotten the next day. Want to insult your boss? Leave it to bureko jikan. Hate your company? Insult it at bureiko jikan. And guess what? It’s all good the next day at the office. Perhaps…
Baird Bureiko Jikan Strong Golden Ale Aroma and Taste
This was the second time I had Baird Bureiko Jikan Strong Golden Ale as I had a quick “pint” of it at the Bashamichi Taproom after visiting a few bars for review purposes. At 9% though, it’s right up at the strong end of beers and promptly sent me spinning which then ended up with me buying some bottles of it for “review” purposes.
Baird Bureiko Jikan Strong Golden Ale is not for the weak-willed or those with delicate palates. It poured out a very hazy brown colour with a fluffy-head off white head that clung to the side of the glass. The aroma was not as sweet as other Belgian strong ales I’ve had in the past but then it is brewed with more of an American influence, though the honey and smoke aroma were good. It was a fairly boozy aroma.
Baird Bureiko Jikan Strong Golden Ale had a thick, strong taste of peaches and candied fruit to it. There was a little bit of hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste but the alcohol was hidden very well. And there was alcohol in there as about 30 minutes later, my head became woozy and dizzy.
