Japas Cervejaria | Sawā

With the characteristic acidity of the style, being also light and refreshing, Sawā is the translation of "Sour" in japanese. The perfect base for a beer that has Japanese Medlar on its recipe, fruit that has a remarking acidity, light sweetness and unmistakable flavor, which is cultivated in Japan for more than a thousand years, being this country the biggest producer of the fruit. We also added peach on the fermentation, increasing the complexity of aromas and flavors of the beer. (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)
