With thinly sliced sugared citron (4%) added during fermentation Goheung Citron Makgeolli makes you almost feel as if you are drinking orange juice and it kind of reminded me a little of a less-sugary Sunny D. Unlike some of the other ‘fruit makgeollis’ on the market the tang of the citron is not limited to smell alone and continues to linger in the mouth after the makgeolli has gone down. It’s refreshing to drink and is definitely one that you could imagine downing copious amounts of outside a summer CU.
The flavour is not quite as strong as that of a Jeju Hallabong which also means that it’s not too overpowering thus making easy to drink. It has a natural orange hue and is smooth and light to drink without being too heavy. Made by WorriSool, who incredibly also boast of producing a ‘sports makgeolli”, it is yet another feather in the cap for the guys who brought us Gapyeong Pine Nut (review available here).
