Kikusui Funaguchi Ginjo Nama Genshu "Red"
All four of these Kikusui Funaguchi cans are pretty similar, but each has unique qualities. The nose on "Red" is ricey, tangy and yeasty. This can has been aged for one year, and that mellows the brew out a bit. It’s not as brash as "Gold" or "Green", and has a more pronounced sweetness that is softer and less rich. "Red" drinks more easy than the others, and has a nectar, honey, and fruit juice sweetness on a very soft and semi-fat flow. There is a roundness to "Red" not found in the other four cans and that is because of the aging! WORD: Smooth WINE: Soft Reds/Fat Whites BEER: Creamy Ales FOODS: All spice dishes from anywhere in the world, salty fare, pub snacks.
