This Red Rice Ale was brewed with special red rice which had been cultured in ancient times in Japan. Please enjoy the complex taste and beautiful natural color. The ale has complex Sake like flavours with a hint of strawberry in the nose and palate.

robforbes (2189) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2016
Pours a very cloudy amber red with a small dirty white head that goes away quickly, heavy carbonation, and a little lacing. Smell is of fruits, hops, leaves, and malt. Taste is a bit sour, fruit, caramel, some molasses, and a little bit of hops. Ends tangy on the tongue and a little chocolate aftertaste.

ferrinche (79) - Santiago de Compostela, SPAIN - OCT 22, 2016
De espuma fina y delicada, pero persistente, aroma muy floral y afrutado, de fácil entrada en la que sus siete grados no se encuentran por ningún lado. Muy recomendable.

Sweet spicy nose, smells like sticky rice. The flavour is almost like jolly ranchers. Oily palate. Cinnamon on the aftertaste. Really good though?

Zilb (185) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - OCT 2, 2016
Bue à John Viande en pression. Bière rouge, légèrement voilée/trouble. Carbo quasi nulle. Petit col de mousse à tenue moyenne. Arôme étrange difficile à identifier : fermier, assez lourd (riz ?). En bouche, assez ronde, pas de bulles. Final sur les fruits rouges,type grenadine et le sucré. Belle découverte !

Fruits in the taste, a refreshing bite to it. A very pleasant sweetness that doesn’t become too much, just very tasty and different. Enjoyed it a lot!

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 1, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Appearance is amber or red, cloudy and OK head. Aroma has rice. Taste has at first bitter crispness which turns into something smooth. Well, I guess that’s the taste of rice. This is, however, not your typical lager with a rice adjuncts, but a serious beer with a complex taste of rice. Very Japanese - something between sake and an ale.

KikoDucky (30) - Trenèín, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 1, 2016
330ml bottle. Interesting caramel aroma, mising hop smells. amber or red colour with creamy white head, head was fast falling. Is my first rice beer and in tasting i feel new flavours, a i like it there is grass, bread and litlle bit smoky flavour, and i feel alcohol in every swallow. Overall: Good beer maybe will be better with some food to pairing, i was waiting more rice i dont know now. For this moment 13/20

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is mineral, mineral oysters, fruity oysters, earthy grains. Taste is sweet grains, at times a little artificial... a very thin sweetness. Light bitter medicinal finish. Great initial and unique aroma but the thin malt wasn’t enough to carry the bitterness for me.

milo91hd (203) - Lecce, ITALY - SEP 28, 2016
Bottiglia. Colore ambrato con una schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma molto delicato con del fruttato e del floreale. Al palato continua ad essere delicata e i 7 gradi non si fanno sentire per niente.
