Boil the citrus for 30 minutes in plenty of water. Drain.
Cut the fruit in half, remove the seeds and pith, then scale.
Roughly chop and sautée in butter with the sugar and honey. Leave to caramelize on low heat, then cover with one-third of the mandarin juice.
Leave to reduce until almost all the liquid has evaporated. Cover with another third of the mandarin juice and leave to reduce.
Add the starch mixed with the final third of the mandarin juice. Boil for a few minutes, stirring vigorously.
Immersion blend roughly once the compote has cooled.

Assembly and finishing
Bake 400g of sponge in a shallow 60 × 40cm frame for 8 minutes at 350°F (175°C).To make the insert, cut the sponge in half and spread 250g of citrus compote onto one piece. Put the second piece of sponge on top. Freeze. Use a 2cm cutter to cut out rounds of sponge. Place 13g of crémeux into each 32mm (1.25 in) sphere mold. Put the insert in place and freeze. Turn out and place a dab of beer crémeux on top. Slightly flatten each dab using a guitar sheet. Freeze. Make the beer glaze, then spray it onto the frozen petit-four. Dip one-third of the petit-four in the yuzu coating, then immediately dip into crumbles of pressed shortcrust. Cut out one 8 × 20cm guitar sheet strip. Use a brush to apply a fine layer of tempered orange and yellow cocoa butter. Spread out tempered Yuzu Inspiration to forma fine sheet and cut it into 3mm wide strips. Fold them over to form small loops. Place the loops in a curved mold so they take on a rounded shape.Leave to set and finish off the ornaments with the decoration.
