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.

Aroma is clove, honey, caramel, hay and hickory. Taste is light sweet malts with medium body and a slight spiciness and bitterness that is slightly off putting and not quite fitting. Appearance is a hazy gradual yellow to orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

히타치노네스&# 브루 -레드 라이스 에일 7% ABV 병을 따자마자 퍼지는 꽃내음, 입안가득 퍼지는 플로랄한 아로마. 솔향이 퍼져 화하게 마무지짓는 라이스 에일. 붉은빛 감도는 고동색, 장미맛으로 알려진 첨가제? 아차차, 아카시아 꿀맛도 약간. 솔향나는 화한 홉과 꽃내음의 좋은 매치. 적미를 사용했다지만 우리가 쌀 첨가 맥주에서 일반적으로 기대하는 고소함은 없다.

R4N5H (198) - SINGAPORE - APR 8, 2015
33cl draught at the CAD Café Block Party on 05/04/15 in Singapore. Hazy red brown colour with a medium brown head which quickly dissipates. Soft carbonation. sweetish aroma of malt, fruit and caramel. Flavour of honey, rosewater and grain. An interesting ale, and worth a try, but a little too sweet for my taste.

Swaroga (1634) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2015
’Well carbonated and watery body. Small head. The arome is subtil of grains, flowers, honey and something woody in the background. Flavor is similar but more pronounced. Plus the yeast tastes like a fresh dough. Nothing amazing on its own but perfect for food pairing.

Copper with pinkish tone. Film of bubbles. Aroma has a real peppery, yeasty character. Taste is unusual, moving from a dry, rosewater opening, to a sweet, rice-y (?) finish. Hibiscus in there too. Refreshing and aromatic. Hard to believe its @ 7%.

Hazy rose colour with a dense, creamy head. Medicinal aroma. Tastes like a raspberry cough syrup. Interesting, that’s for sure.
