This just keeps getting better every time we taste it. Tasting notes are so consistent, just that it’s becoming more nuanced and layered. Big and bold, with balance and poise. This will sail on in the cellar for 15 - 20 years. — 5 days ago
Hitachino produce one of my fave beers. This particular one is quite exotic, since it’s made with red rice. It’s like an IPA, but cleaner. Displays hints of fruits, but besides barley and the red rice (hence the red presentation in the glass), no flavors are added. Wifey doesn’t drink beer, so I get to slurp these by myself 🐶 — 5 days ago
Cherries, sandalwood and white pepper on the nose. Lovely expression on the palate, with notes of red and black fruits, overripe cherries and brown sugar. Very well done - burger and wine night at Capital Grille, Paramus.

A point of reference is useful... this crushes the Morlet, and at $23 it’s a case but.
Pristine, focused and lifted. RP nailed the notes and rating. Loads of pears and flowers on the nose and palate. Beautiful delineation and acidity. Trust me on this - you won’t be disappointed. — 5 days ago
