3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pouring it gently left most of the sediments in the bottle, but some floaties and micro-floaties found it’s way into the glass, giving it a un-appetizing look, even though the big, off-white head looked nice. The color of the beer is pale golden, and it was clear, except for the mentioned floaties. The nose was sweet and citrusy, with cloves and other spices, as well as an unknown scent I expect is quinua. Sweet and fruity flavor, with a strange note of something that might be quinoa, but it differs from the aroma. It also has citrus and some bitterness. The aroma is a tad better than the flavor I think. Medium body. It finishes fruity, with an underlying herbal note. Compared to the coconut and banana beers, this one is really good, but it’s too strange to be an all-nighter. (071027)

Beers of europe. Aroma is sweet wheaty hints with some bitter grassy woody notes balancing. Taste is similar but not so balanced, the wheat seems to be mixed with flaked barley some something also.

"Mongozo Quinua Exotic Unfiltered Beer". Bottle. Hazy yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of yeast and and corn. Fruity flavour, bit sweet, yeasty and malty with a little spiciness. Good tasting brew with quinua, very much used in Bolivia and Peru and several African and Arab countries.

Bottled (BB 10/2009)
Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Strange grainy aroma: sour milk and spelt. Organic feeling here: grainy, woody flavor like in some spelt beers. Interesting and actually not too bad: background here is sweetish and citrusy fruity.

Bottle. Quite yeasty and soft on the tongue. Soft citrusy flavours and a subtle sweetness, but otherwise not much happening, at least it was a little bit refreshing i suppose.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2007 Bottled at Chris_O Fest March 2007. A straw coloured beer with whitish bubbles for a head. The aroma is lemony, wheaty, spicy and fizzy. The taste has lemony flavours and phenols. Much too highly carbonated. A bit odd but interesting flavours.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ June 09. Light blond with a moderate turbidity. Tiny yeast flakes, big fluffy head. Light hoppy but foremostly sweet, dense, a kind of flowery-herbal aroma. Strongly carbonated; thick, round body. Sweet, light sourish taste flowing into a strong hint of fruit candies. There is a hop touch.
