Brewed with rice and finished with Sterling hops, this is another light, easy drinking beer. The rice lends a pleasant coconutty character, and overall the beer is crisp with mild herbal and citrus hop flavors.

(fest rating) Draft @ Boonville Beer Fest. Pours a very light straw color; effervescent; hazy, with bright, fine white bubbles, solid lacing; attractive pour. Very bright lemony and grassy hop aroma, not overly bitter, just bright and juicy; very dry core with just a touch of husky rice notes. Medium-light body; lively carbonation, lightly creamy; lots of citrusy, herbal hop flavor with a modest amount of zesty bitterness; very light core, suggestive of rice, beautifully dry; crisp, nicely hopped light beer with plenty of hop character and a well-placed bitterness without overwhelming the quiet malt core; really enjoyable, dry, hoppy, tasty stuff. Lasting, dry finish of citrus and herbal notes, moderately toasty; yum.

Had on tap at the Bruery. Pours bright yellow with slight white head. No lacing, very watery texture, good carbonation. Aroma of citrus and chalk. Taste is crisp, slighty fruity, rice-y, almost sake like. Completely missing the strong hop characteristics that are present in the other Bruery hop beers (after all, Humulus is hops...). Drinkable, but something just seemed off. Not a fan of this rice beer.

Tap at the Bruery. Yellow color with medium white head. Fruity aroma and taste with medium hop bitterness. Some citrus and pine present. A really nice session beer.

1st rating. On draft at The Bruery. Poured a straw yellow with tiny white head. Aroma was mildly fruity with some faint hops. Reminded me of a mild sake in the aroma. Taste was coconut, fruity, and some hop presence. Very crisp and easy to drink. Medium thin pallet. Overall not to bad.
