Ukidama Lychee Saison
4.5% ABV | 18 IBU | 6 SRM
This is a spicy session saison that looks to combine the Asian natives Lychee and Yuzu. These fruits leave an interesting and complex residual character that marries with the pepper and soft grainy malt of the base beer. A flavourful low alcohol beer to enjoy on a hot summer day.
- Superior Pilsner, Wheat, Cara-Pils
- Centennial (60,15,0,dry), Citra (0,dry), Idaho7 (0,dry)
- Moderate sweet lychee supported by moderate-low orangey Yuzu and spicy Saison yeast phenolics. Soft grainy malt and herbal hops in background. Moderate citrusy Yuzu flavour with a medium-low sweet lychee and soft wheat note. Low herbal hops and moderate peppery phenols. Balance is slightly bitter, but the finish flirts between dry-grainy and citrusy-sweet with spicy phenols throughout.
