Nice doodle Eric, wish I could draw as well as that.

Just tucking into the pineapple chuhi now and thinking that these 6% chuhi's are pretty good. They don't have to go overboard on the flavour to drown out the taste of shochu so their fruit can really come to the fore without being too overwhelming. I can see another order being placed really soon with Omni7 :thumbup:

Kirin has put out a Hong Kong style chu-hi, only 4% but the lychee flavor is strong. It's a bit sweeter than the strong-zero one. I like the strong zero more but this is good enough, especially considering the strong-zero doesn't seem to exist in conbini anywhere! Would like to order it online but registering is a pain..Maybe I'll do it tomorrow!

Omni7 is surprisingly easy to register for and use and if you opt out of the marketing emails then you don't get spammed for ever afterwards. It's actually quite a well designed system that is pretty easy to use :thumbup:

This pear chuhi is really good, it tastes just like a well ripened conference pear rather than a more watery nashi. They have captured the flavour perfectly without being tempted to over sweeten and overpowering the pear flavour. If you fancy a break from citrus I can thoroughly recommend this one.

Has anyone else tried the new Salty Lemon Sour yet ?

Image

Like the others in this series is very refreshing and makes a perfect ending for a summer evening. Not as tart perhaps as some of the other citrus chuhis but still pleasantly lemony.

So with winter almost here Kirin have launched a new range of winter Chuhi's and here is their Yuzu Chuhi

Image

Yuzu has always been a favourite of mine and this perfectly encapsulates the flavour, it like you are drinking a yuzu fruit but from a can. I can see this being a firm favourite through the winter months.

Several companies have recently released more non citrus based flavours with Kirin doing their own Cola flavoured Chuhi

Image

I'ts quite a mild cola flavour without the sharpness you'd expect from coke and actually quite pleasant. It's currently one of my favourites briefly displacing Double Grapefruit.

There's also this little beauty

Image

Which is a lovely refreshing apple chuhi, they could have so easily gone for a boring generic sweet apple flavour but thankfully didn't and went with a crisp, clear and slightly sharp tone.
