Do you yuzu? It seems like the Asian citrus fruit is a polarizing ingredient — you either love or hate the fragrant juice it produces. I’m firmly planted in the “love” category, and if there’s yuzu anywhere on a menu, I’m ordering it.
That said, this week’s beer, the Yuzu Pale Ale at Insight Brewing (on Hennepin Avenue near Minnesota 280 in Northeast Minneapolis), has a subtle yuzu flavor that’s nearly indiscernible when paired with gently hoppy pale ale.
It’s refreshing without being overly sweet or fruity and perfect for a hot summer day.
The beer is available in the taproom year-round and on tap at a rotating list of Twin Cities restaurants.
