Hitachino Nest White Ale is brewed in the tradition of a Belgian style white beer with coriander, nutmeg, orange peel and orange juice.
Refreshing, mildly hopped with a complex flavour it is one of Hitachino's top-selling beers in Japan and the USA.
Complex Sake-like flavours with a malt sweet notes with hints of strawberries in the nose and palate. Brewed with special red rice (also called "ancient rice" in Japan) an intriguing mix of Sake, malt and bitter notes to finish.
Hitachino Japanese Classic Ale is brewed following the original India Pale Ale brought to Japan in the 19th century . It is slowly matured in Cedar casks which are commonly used in the brewing of traditional Japanese sake.
Pour this cloudy and warm gold coloured beer to release a heady array of aromas that sway from yuzu citrus and banana to peppery tones, with a light sourness and sweet notes.Funky yeast is most definitely present and, although not what one would expect from a traditional european saison, this is a brilliant interpretation of the style.
