Suiyoubi No Neko

This is a beer that we absolutely bought because we liked the can art. It has a cute cat on it and I knew absolutely nothing about the brewery before this. So, I didn’t know if this would be a gem or a dud. Let’s see how it worked out.

ABV: 4.5%

Style: Witbier

Trivia: According to Brewery International, “Suiyoubi No Neko is an Ale in the Belgian Wit style. A lightly carbonated and smooth Wit Ale with flavors of citrus, coriander, cinnamon and wheat. Scent of straw and citrus.”

Random: I’m really liking the show “Gotham.” I just read that they cancelled “A to Z” which I also liked. Figures. If I like a show, of course it gets cancelled.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left slight lacing on the pint glass. The body was a hazy, light yellow color with moderate carbonation. The nose was not that fragrant and had some yeast, spice and wheat to it. The taste was not impressive. It had some lemon to it with grain and a bit of yeast. The lemon flavor was weirdly artificial, almost like Italian ice. The yeast was very bready and there wasn’t enough spice to it. The body was very thin with lighter carbonation than I wanted in the style. It had a thankfully quick finish with some lemon and yeast. I really wasn’t a big fan of this beer and wouldn’t rush back to have it again, especially since it was $6.49 a can. I understand that it’s an import, but it was a total rip off.
