How does it taste?
Chuga Yuzu Makgeolli has a pale white appearance, appearing less milky than that of typical makgeolli. Its rice sediments settle down relatively faster, creating the great contrast between the cheongju (the clear alcohol that emerges later) and takju (concentrated wine). The aroma of yuzu is slightly muted. Despite that, upon entry the characteristics of yuzu immediately stands out.
From the tongue to the wall of your mouth, you will taste the citrus coupled with a hint of grapefruit, followed by lemon and lastly the sweetness of mandarin orange. Chuga Yuzu Makgeolli has a pretty good structure. Balanced sweetness and citrusy with the low level of coating in your mouth. The whole experience has a medium finish, leaving you wanting more. Recommended for anyone, for any occasion.
