Japas Cervejaria Sawa Yuzu

What the brewers say

“Sour ale with yuzu. Amarillo and Cascade hops in dry hopping, further enhancing the citrus.”

What our panel thought

“Bright citrus aroma with yeasty sourdough, black pepper, and crackers. Sweet citrus-candy flavor—lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, clementines—with medium-low sourness then a dry, sparkling wine–like finish. Not quite sweet, but close. Like a ‘lite’ baked lemon sourdough dessert bread.”

What our editors thought

“Light and weightless, with a bright but polished cucumber-lemon nose, accomplished yet energetic. The sip leans into light citrus, with only vague tartness balanced by the dry body.”
