3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy dark ornge colour, minimal off-white head; aroma of honey and herbal notes, caramel and some berries; taste is dominated by unbalnced malty sweetness with honey and herbal notes; drinkable, but will not be my favourite

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 Its unusual persistent foam introduces the full aroma and aftertaste: red roses, flowers, red rice. The body is balanced and unusual for a rice beer. The bitterness is quite low to increase the perception of the rice aroma. The color is ruby and perfectly bright. Very interesting!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours slightly dark amber with suspended particles inside, small white foamy head, grassy aroma, low carbonation, it really tastes like rice wine with an abrupt tart finish. It’s a strange beer, but not bad.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pinkish with a violent white head, an aroma that smacked of hickory and bacon when I sampled it. An odd fish, to be sure. This translated to the flavour that had plenty of woody hickory smoke and artificial bacon flavour with twinges of subtle bitterness. I have to be candid and say I am not the greatest fan, but I will come back and give this another go, to be sure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy orange-amber with a pink hue. Strawberry and grain aromas, sweet with a bit of tartness. Flavour is sweet berries with a very slight tartness, some grain notes. This is really quite nice, wish I could have tried this a bit fresher.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber, low carbonation, rice, fruity, sweet, spicy aroma and flavor. Like a witbier but with rice. It has an unique flavor, a good one, definitively.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber body under a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is sweetly malty with a light vegetal note. The flavor is caramel malt with just a light hop bitterness on the back end. There’s an interesting flavor in here that must be from the rice, but can’t say that I would have guessed that. Light to medium bodied with just a little clinginess and soft carbonation. Interesting beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
11.2 oz. bottle at home. Pours a hazy reddish orange amber color with some sediment and a medium sized pinkish-off white head. The aroma and flavor have fruits, grapes, sweet malts, I guess the strange character comes from the rice, straw, yeast, mild spices, strange and I probably wouldn’t revisit.
