muzzlehatch (4937) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2008
300 ml bottle from City Market in Burlington, VT (February 2008), served chilled and shaken from a White Winter Winery glass. Milky-cloudy/opaque, with just a hint of froth as it’s poured, thin white legs in the glass as it recedes.....sweet, ricey-coconut aroma, fairly simple with no hint of alcohol....the body is thick, lightly warming/alcoholic, moderately sweet with some hints of bitterness towards the finish, light toasted/burnt almond character, milky-thick at the finish....there’s a little too much "grit" in this one, and it’s a little rough and hard on the finish, but on the whole it’s pretty enjoyable and less sweet and cloying than many; somewhat better than I expected.

Danke an Colin. Mild hefig alkoholischer Antrunk. Deutlich hefiger Antrunk, so trüb, dass sich die Trübung im wahrsten Sinne auf den Zähnen absetzt. Sehr süffig, mild fruchtig, Noten von Banane, etwas Mango. Sehr interessant! 10/9/10/9/13/9

Erzengel (8432) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2016
210ml cup from Sake Kontor Berlin. Milky in the glass, fresh and round typical Saké aroma in the nose. The Saké starts very smooth and mild. The milky rice is there, very smooth with fruity hints. Interesting aroma profile, that the rice there changes it to a smooth and creamy texture. Not too deep in the aftertaste, but refreshing with nice pears and melons there. Smooth milky-ricy aftertaste with a smooth and fruity melon-mild aftertaste. Very interesting and nice.

210ml green tinged ECO cup from Japan Centre online. Pours a milky white colour with no head and aroma of rice, light citric. Taste is rice, coconut milk, sweetish, pineapple, citrus, with hints of glue, paper, alcohol. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied, low carbonation, dry sweetish finish. Quite OK.

Sweet and fruity. The sediment was different and did not help the beer, but it didn’t take away from the taste; it was just different, but it made my tongue feel weird. This was purchased on clearance and I could see why.

Bottle. Off-white, cream color with substantial sediment. Citrus aroma with some coconut notes. Sweet citrus with some coconut notes. A lot of sediment in the body they distracts a bit from the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
