2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Disturbing since the name. Couldn’t take it home with me. The smell reminds me a little the aroma of the marihuana (not that I have tasted that crap) and the taste is a little sour a kind of onion, like someone said. Cloudy texture and weird aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25/09/2011 31cl. bottle @ our hotel room (2011-456)
Fizzy aery white head, soda like, unstable and non adhesive, dissipates immediately. Little cloudy yellow to light amber coloured beer, some residue floating around. Aroma: very spicy, cloves, green tea, star anise, bit fruity, interesting but at the same time quite nasty, dusty. Dried orange peel. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: very sour lemony start, almost geuze like. then spices, probably the coca leafs, but I’ll be damned if I can tell for sure. I’d describe it as tobacco, bitter oranges, lemon peel, cloves, curcuma, (bitter dry). All of this still with the very sour notes present. Aftertaste: can you guess? Yes, sour lemony. I’d like to know the Ph number of this beer. For sure the most interesting beer in Peru. It takes some balls for putting this in the market and that’s why I give it an overall of 13!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle 330 ml. 5º. Vary cloudy beer, small head that doesn´t hold too much, no lace. Very strong acre smell, I guess is from the coca leaves, but it reminds me of papaya. Some citrus too and a hint of something sweet in the end. Flavor is bitter but with some sweetness too. In the mouth it’s very unpleasant too at first, but once you get uses to it you’ll ike it. Same thing as the smell, must be the coca leaves but it reminds of papaya.
Very strange beer but I’ll say it’s a good one, though it’s hard to drink.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Found in Cusco. It is like mixing maté de coca (coca leaf tea, common in the Andes) with chicha de jorra (which is artesan fermented corn beer i.e. lousy). Probably a tourist gimmic, but better than most of the crap beer than you can get in Peru. Cost 7.5 soles (about 2.5 dollars) in the grocers for 310 ml, so probably a one time thing. Glad I tried it, glad I added it. Rated with Quillaraymi, my wife!

Bottled. A hazy light golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet and very spicy. The flavor is slightly acidic with notes of spices and citrus, leading to a dry spicy finish. Thanks Myrup for sharing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange with a fast disappearing head. Refreshing lemony and spicy nose, but also some wet cardboard notes. Sharp acidic flavours, borderline case. Well-carbonated. Probably a beer gone over the top, but at least not boring.

Hazy golden with a tiny white short lasting head. Flavour had loads of what I presume coca leaves, and herbal notes. Finished spicy.

(bottle) My nephew brought me a bottle from Peru. Clear yellow with small white head. Faint herbal aroma. Flavor was overwhelmed by grassy/herbal flavor. Obviously a novelty beer - not one you’d buy regularly.
