2019/12/25

Far Yeast Brewing beers, Kagua Blanc and Tokyo White, were awarded medals at the 2019 Great International Beer, Cider, Mead & Sake Competition (GIBCC) in Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA on October 26, 2019. Kagua Blanc won the Gold medal in the fruit & spice ale category. Tokyo White won the Silver medal in the Belgian & French Ale / Belgian Wit beer category. 

“KAGUA Blanc” hasis a dry flavor with a mixture of moderate sweetness, slight bitterness, and it  subtle sourness to compliment the spiciness derived from “Sansho,” a Japanese pepper. The gorgeous aroma from fresh Yuzu and yeast esters harmonize in the nose. In the finish, the subtle scent of Sansho suppresses the floral aroma and gives rise to an exquisite flavor. 

 

“Tokyo White” is a dry, crisp Saison style beer. You can enjoy its mouthfeel with mild hop bitterness and pleasant sourness. 

Enjoy the fruity ester scent and the refreshing hop aroma.
