Rather than writing our usual whole page review for a beer, we’ve come up with this mini review page for Yggdrasil Brewing at Yggdrasil Brewing in Hiratsuka.
Style: Session IPA
Yggdrasil Fenrir Mini Review
Appearance: Light golden colour that was slightly hazy, fluffy white head.
Aroma: Jammy – lots of strawberry and some mint going on too.
Taste: Smooth and crisp with some dryness to it. Strawberries and mint both in the body and aftertaste. Low bitterness.
Style: Raspberry weisse
Yggdrasil Rab Zombee Mini Review
Appearance: Cloudy dark golden colour with thin white head on top.
Aroma: Like the Fenrir, jammy but with a mixed bouquet of berry aromas. Raspberry and strawberry jam-like. Slight sour note to it.
Taste: Lingering sour raspberry tartness to the beer. Slightly sticky but easy-drinking. No hints of alcohol but at 3.5%, not a surprise. Good crushable beer for the summer.
Style: Double / Imperial IPA
Yggdrasil Mashpit DIPA Mini Review
Appearance: Dark straw colour with minimal head to the beer. What there was, faded to a few bubbles around the outside.
Aroma: Slight pithy and soapy aroma to it. Grape, orange, and peach nose once warmed up.
Taste: Low bitterness which was surprising. Fruity with the grape, orange, and peach flavours coming through when warm. No discernible alcohol heat either.
Style: Coffee porter
Yggdrasil Coffee Hoder Mini Review
Appearance: Pitch black colour with a surprisingly clean white head that lingers.
Aroma: Coffee all the way with some hints of light black malt and a dusting of chocolate.
Taste: Smooth but with a roasted coffee kick. When warmed up, black malts present but without acridity.
