Japanese Name: アサヒ 冬の贈り物
Release: Oct. 10, 2011
Purchase Price: ￥139 @Sankus
Following in the footsteps of other major Japanese brewers, Asahi decided to release its first new genre dai-san beer (happousei) called Asahi Fuyu no Okurimono (Winter’s Gift). The crystal malt flavors the front end with some bitter-sweetness. It’s a smooth drinking happousei, that finishes “dry” along side Asahi’s other beverages.
Production stopped in December 2011, so you might be hard pressed to find Asahi Fuyu no Okurimono on the store shelves still.
