3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A classy beer that’s not at all weird. It pours a nice reddish- tinged gold color with some particulate matter suspended throughout. Minimal head formation. Aroma of mild minty, herbal hops, a roasty, smokiness, presumably the red rice, and also a spicy, peppery element. Flavor is rich, sweet, with excellent mouthfeel. Somewhat fruity and peppery, closing with a good, but gentle dose of bitter hops. Alcohol well concealed.
I didn’t pick up the sake flavors.

Rotbraune Farbe. Leicht säuerlicher Geruch. Sehr cremig, etwas malzig aber doch, vermutlich durch den Hopfen, recht frisch.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
May ’16. A 0.33 l bottle that poured a hazy reddish orange body with medium sized head. Weird aroma of herbs, citrus, tropical fruits, berries. Flavor was lightly sour, chalky, alcoholic from rice, like a sake always feels more alcoholic than it is. Medium body with moderately long finish, rice, caramel, some cooked vegetables and light dry bitterness. Quite weird, but glad to have tried it anyway.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 330ml. Pours clear copper-orange, with short lasting, pale colored head. Scent of yeast and canned corm, sweet malt. Body is medium-thick, with medium-low carbonation. Taste quite sweet, but not overly so, well balanced by gentle but present bitterness, and some acidity. Flavors of honey, yeast, hops, caramel, roasted bitterness, malt, spice, lemon, canned corn, lightly fruity. It has a many Belgian ale attributes, but more strongly hopped. Bet when cold, ass it gets too acidic if left to sit too much.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 330ml at The Fizzy Moon Brewhouse, Leamington Spa, Warks. Clouded red amber with white head. Quite a rich, full beer, there is a fruitiness, berries, strawberry, blackberry then a hopped tropical fruit note. There is an alcohol hit, fairly sharp. All in all pretty decent.
