1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Comes in 2l Plastic container with ’breathing hole’ in the cap. Pink-white. Very opaque. Thick like drinking yoghurt. Grainy, sourish nose. Off-putting thick consistence, but tastes freshly sour. No bitterness. Unusual to say the least...

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
The aroma is really offputting: like Prohibition-style toolshed scrumpy. The appearance is really cool - thick, opaque, kind of milk-like, with the consistency of guava juice. Flavour: more cidery, but also a sweet, almost cream-like graininess. Palate is both thin and thick at the same time (don’t ask), and quenching. Overall, I think it does its intended job, but man this stuff is really different and I think it would take quite a bit of it to adjust your palate. Westerners would likely hate it at first, but it may very well get better. Besides, it’s not brewed for Westerners, so who cares what we think?
