2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
"wasn’t expecting THAT color :) unique brew, but not one that particularly interested me after all was said and done. tastes like a sake/beer hybrid, and sake is ok, but not something i drink hardly ever. nice light prickly feel, with rice and light sweet fruit."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Clear red amber color. Small size, white head, disappears. Pure farty green shit in aroma. Sort of softcore version of morning farts. Not good. Candy, sweet, I’m tempted to say bamboo, definitely something woody in taste. Sweet and sour, sake like finish. Covers alcohol very well. Nothing exciting, but not entirely dull. Roundy brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
06-SEP-2014, bottle @home, present from Marlene, thx:-)
Almost clear golden with low off-white head.
Aroma is rice, fruit and caramel. Taste is rice, over ripe fruit and a red fruit thing that I guess is from rice.
Sweet, ale-like caramel, a Little hoppy bitterness on the finish.
"I don’t put rice int my beer", well it Works here but I will never be a huge fan.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy golden orange from the bottle with white head that leaves good lace. Aroma is soy, rice, nuts, caramel, and odd maltiness. Taste follows the same vein. It’s decent on it’s own, but a perfect match with Swedish Västerbotten-cheese. Who would’ve thought?
