3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml can. Nice - a Belgian ale from a can. Thin wispy head and a vibrant deep orange colour. Strong rum like aroma with a similar flavour, almost like it has been aged in rum barrels.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A muddy gold pour with a Belgian zesty vaguely farmhouse aroma. It smells much nicer than it looks. Fairly light bodied, the taste is zesty yeast spice notes, caramel & a bit of chemicalness but overall ok.

1.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
330ml can bought at CitySuper in New Town Plaza, Shatin during the ‘Taste of Autumn - Japan’ food fair promotion.
Cloudy hazy light muddy straw colour with dusty yeast sediments; Very thin head and white foams which fades in 30 seconds; Moderate sticky lacing and near zero carbonation; Sweet smell light malt, with light floral, peach, light dark fruit, molasses, and light Belgian yeast; Light sweet taste of thin malt with pronounced tartness, plus slight metallic, light wet cardboard, yellow fruit, strong yeast, hint of lemon and faint grass; Medium body, thick and sour palate; Taste profile is thin malt with poor yeast, sour taste messed with cardboard to nullify any redeemable Belgian Ale’s aroma or characters. Bel-yeasty but not tasty at all; Hoppiness is light fruity and faint grass nose, lemon hint and faint grass taste, and barely detectable bitterness. Paper and yeast finish; Fairly dry after taste, sour and a bit harsh to mouth.
Comments: canned Belgian Ale? I wish I didn’t try it. Decent light aroma aside, it’s all about ugly colour, bare bone malt, poor yeast, and possibly infection-induced sourness. Poor as hell. Not again!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Notes from tasting session. Very yeasty aroma, some wheat included?
So-so malty flavors with a lot of yeast again. Pretty uninteresting aftertaste. Nothing special in particular

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows spicy phenols, sweet malt, doughy wheat, honey. Not bad.
Flavours are a shock, with rice, soft cardboard-like malt and industrial notes. Not pleasant.
Body feels watery.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale straw thin quickly dissipating head, lemon citrus aroma and taste, some yeasty notes, very subtle hop aroma/bitterness. The main defining feature to this beer for me is RICE. If these guys don’t put rice in this beer i will shotgun a six pack of this and upload to youtube. you can tell by the texture and flavour, somewhat similar to Sake. i like the artwork on the can very Japanese.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Brown and quite clear, head didnt stick around long. Nose of lemon grass and grains, a bit of yeast and honey, its all pretty quiet though. I enjoyed the lemon grass taste, but there was some random things happening, maybe rice or barley? It was good if I focused on the lemon grass. Palate was clean and quite light. A different beer that I didnt entirely dislike, but it was very unconventional.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Yamaoka. Slightly amber golden color with a quickly vanishing head. Fruity, yeasty aroma, with hops, earth, honey, grass, metal. Some funky horse blanket. Earthy, bitter flavor with some honey. Hops are indistinct yet it is rather bitter. Metallic as well. Something Belgian about the yeast, but doesn’t work too well with the light malt. Should be stronger. Drinkable and original but not a very good package altogether. Finish is metallic and funky.
