Just like you, but different
Baird Brewing Company is a family-run craft brewery and pub business headquartered in Numazu, Japan. The Baird Beer I have then is In the Style of an India Pale Ale (IPA), and it is from Numazu, Shizuoka, Japan.
Baird Wabi Sabi IPA. What’s with that – Baird Beer is unfiltered and the addition of whole leaf green tea to Wabi-Sabi IPA has contributed a very strong particle sediment. Apparently.
It’s a 6% ABV in a big 633ml bottle beer.
It’s very pale, golden, hazy/cloudy and fizzy. it carries a small head, more of soda than beer. It’s very hoppy/yeasty in aroma.
And it tastes like a traditional IPA, more in the american style or pale ale I’d suggest. And there is a bit of melange of flavor on the tongue. The taste carries long.
You can taste the tea!, unless I believe everything I read.
It’s odd and yet not unwelcome. There is more of a smile than a frown in this. I’m sure the burp was natural and not because of the beer, honest. I’m quite chuffed with this selection, although I wish I’d taken heed of the sediment warning that I myself cut and paste in to this review. Still it won’t harm me. And no, the burps seem to come as an undocumented feature. The head, you’ll be pleased to know carries too. It looks like a beer, tastes like a beer, and by jolly it’s a top effort!
Arbitrarily then this is about an 8.5 from 10 arbitrary things on the arbitrary pdubyah-o-meter. It wouldn’t be out of place amongst some of the craft brews that are appearing in New Zealand and gives more than their fair share a decent run for the money, I like this beer.
「すごい！きれい！ as they say. And the Liquorland people in Forest Hill you rock too.

Thank you so much for writing on Bryan Baird and his beer as I live in Shizuoka Prefecture where Numazu City is found!
Hello! Not a problem, I’m glad I brought this, and I’ll be out looking for some of the others to try, It’s a seriously good beer and no one should doubt the quality of it.
