Japas Cervejaria | Sawā Yuzu

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, on this version, has Yuzu on its recipe, a japanese citric fruit that has a remarking acidity and that is extremely aromatic, reminding of a mix of sicilian lemon, tangerine and grapefruit. This sour ale also has the Citra and Cascade hops added on dry hopping, empowering even more the citric character of this rare fruit. (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)
