Slowly but steadily (although in a very disorganized way), I am progressing through all the breweries of Shizuoka. Incidentally the tasting order does not reflect my preferences, although those also vary along time…
I did not have to go far this time, as Eikun Brewery stands in the mountains near Yui, which will be part of Shimizu Ku next year.

Eikun Tokubetsu Junmai
Rice: Gohyakumangoku (Fukui Prefecture)
Rice milled down to 55%
Dryness: +4
Acidity: 1.2
Bottled in February 2006

Clarity: very clear

Colour: light gold

Aroma: Fruits: pineapple/banana

Body: velvety

Taste: Junmai tingle. Complex. Fruity: pinepapple, banana, bitter chocolate.
Fruits linger long in mouth.
Calling for another sip.
Welcome faint acidity appears later with sweet oak and bitter chocolate.

Overall: Elegant. Easy to drink. Very fruity.
Calls for another sip. Complexity grows as more is drunk.
Turns surprisingly very dry when eating fresh fruit or dessert.
