3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Pours hazy golden with a thin white head that quickly disappears. Aroma of cereal malt, some fruit and spices, mild smokiness and brown rice.Taste of malt, strawberry and syrup with some bitterness. Very sweet and fruity, quite nice.

From the bottle, pours an almost clear reddish copper color with a medium thickness finely formed foam head that lasts a long time.Huge lacing on the glass. Aroma is somewhat subdued, but is caramel and grains. Taste is sweet, caramel. Pleasant hops. This is an easy-drinking beer from a brewery with a lot of fine beers. Enjoyed in Narita, Japan.

Orange, bra med skum og kullsyre. Aroma av malt og frukt. Medium kullsyre, tam ettersmak. Drakk denne til sushi, helt ok men ikke noe mer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma - is mildly malty and toasted, and somewhat fruity.
Appearance - body is a reddish orange; liquid is hazy; 1" head is off-white with some lacing
Taste - the most striking thing is an olive flavor, it’s not over the top, but it is there; there is also some toasted grain quality
Palate - body is light; the texture is thin; carbonation is average; the finish is not my favorite the olive quality comes back, and it’s not for me. It’s not off-putting, just not my favorite.
1st beer by these guys, I wasn’t in love with.

Aucune attente, le nez est mielleux, comme un glaçage malté difficile à identifier. En bouche je peux sentir le riz à l’oeuvre, un sucre effacé suivi d’une floralité spectrale, étrange magnétisme.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Amundsen, january 17th 2014. Clear amber body, small white head. Strange adjunct aroma and taste, guess it’s the red rice, pleasant hops with a modest bitterness. The different taste makes the beer a bit special, though it’s quite forgettabe, with an elsewhere pretty standard malt body.

Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Drukket hjemme i selskap med Elsa&Kristoffer 28 Aug 13. Gyldenbrun. Høyt kremaktig skum. Svak tung fruktig aroma. Smaken uvant. Samme tunge preget - antakeligvis risen. Litt sødme i ettersmaken. Avslutter tørt.

Rating #937 - January 24, 2014- Bottle from LSGP. Golden-ruby pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is mild lemon, orange, toasted rice. Palate is a bit messy, rice and corn toasted don’t provide enough body or depth to stand up to these hops, bitterness overloads any ’grain’ character or sweetness. Colour is pretty, admittedly.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity yeasty rice aroma. Reminds me of sake. Hazy, dark pink colour. Strong rice and yeast derived flavours. Tastes boozy and sweet. Tastes cloying even though there isn’t that much sweetness. Heavy mouthfeel. Would really benefit from less residual sugars and/or some more hops to balancing things out.
