Flavor & fragrance profile

Master brewer's comments

This year Arabashiri came in with higher acidity, giving it good balance and a fuller flavor across the range from sweet to tangy. Its abundant fruit-like aroma is also very appealing.

Food pairing suggestions

Fresh fragrance pairs well with herb salads; flavor bold enough to go with saucy dishes like stews, grilled meats & fish.
