|Hitachino Nest Beer 3 Days|
|Style: Belgian Strong Ale. Brewed by Kiuchi Brewery, Ibaraki, Japan. 8% Abv.
Label: March 11, 2011 14:46, a huge earthquake struck Japan and with it our brewery. Some parts of the brewery house were damaged and the brewing tanks were left leaning at an angle. Completion of the typical mashing period had to be extended to three days until electricity to the brewery was restored. Natural fermentation had already started in the mash tank during these three days with lactic acid culture in our brewery. This "3 DAYS" beer is limited to only 8,000 bottles.
|Review||Intersting bottle, pours a red orange color with a nice off white head. Aroma, of sweet fruits and malts. Flavors of sweet fruits and malts, herbs a toasty. Nice grainy texture, nice overal taste, something defferent. Nice supprise.
Interesting how something so bad helped made such a great beer.
