秋の気まぐれ 2021 (Aki no Kimagure 2021)

For this year’s Aki no Kimagure, we really wanted to achieve a marriage of malt and hop character that was both complementary and distinct. Base malts of Maris Otter and Munich provide a rich and full background character, but it is really the crystal malt that takes center stage, creating a beautiful red hue and flavors of dark fruit and caramel. A small addition of a rye crystal malt further accentuates the deep red color while also adding a background hint of toasted spices.

Chinook and Idaho 7 hops for flavor add a strong citrus character with hints of pine and give the beer a firm bitterness. The aroma is dominated by a combination of the almost berry-like fruitiness of Simcoe and the sweet ripe fruit character of Mosaic Cryo. Together, the malt and the hops combine to create a multi-level flavor experience that isn’t too hoppy nor too malty and seems to show different sides of itself over time. We think this year’s Aki no Kimagure really welcomes the season right!
