This beer is interesting. I don’t even think the world has a name for the color it pours. Kind of a cloudy blood-orangey hue. Looks weird. Smells okay, not really pungent. Tastes like... not very obvious flavor, but what the palate does pick up is something I have never tasted before, which is cool. It is bready with a good bitter backbone. Some toffee notes, but not really sweet. Although, pretty subtle, this is kind of a cool, original beer. Worth a go at at least once.

Red pink color with quickly vanishing head. Fruity aroma, red fruit. Taste fruity, rice wine? Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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%.

adamnowek (449) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015
Hazy rose colour with a dense, creamy head. Medicinal aroma. Tastes like a raspberry cough syrup. Interesting, that’s for sure.

Calisky (1343) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAR 13, 2015
Couleur cuivre trouble, très légère mousse. Nez levuré et legumes (riz?) fermenté. Gout doux malté particulier (le riz?), sirop fruits rouges, un peu floral, note de paille et levures. Bon corps. Pas mal pour une nouveauté!

jaghana (4355) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle 33cl, kindly shared by Calisky. A cloudy amber red beer with medium head. Nose is medicinal, very unusual, kind of juniper touch. Aroma is vegetable like, light sourness, kind of yeast, again medicinal, berries notes, alcohol is a bit burning, honey notes, again medicinal finish.

Light, but very tasty Asian brew very unlike the normal drinks we can get at a sushi restaurant. The brew went very well with the seafood I ate. I would recommend this beer to anyone. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Botella. Color ámbar rojizo con espuma muy poco persistente. Sabor dulce a sake y algún fruto rojo y floral. El final algo seco. Va guay con manos y shusis....curiosa

willisread (406) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 18, 2015
330ml bottle from Liquors Hasegawa in Tokyo. Poured into a stemmed tulip. Beautiful golden amber with a light pink head that dissipates fairly quickly. Strong rice aroma with honey, strawberry and rose hip aromas present. Medium body with average carbonation. Sweet with a slight bit of saltiness. Long finish with a slight hint of bitterness and spice. Good beer with a unique profile.

It’s like a snow ball when you have it in your glass. Smells of herbs, rice, fish. Taste of rice of course, sugary, balanced with a bit of saltiness. Incredible sensation on the palate - coats your entire throat with a very interesting sugary taste. And look at that cover!
