MeadMuse39 (17) - Haddon Township, New Jersey, USA - MAR 20, 2017
Pour: Blood orange red, small light ivory head. Little to no lace. Nose: Red fruit, like strawberries or cherries, hot metal, some creaminess. Taste: I have never tasted anything quite like this before. Rice ales are definitely in a class of their own. Mixture of cherries and currant. Pronounced sweetness that opens up and becomes more layered as it breathes. Nice bite to it. Dry finish. Mouthfeel: Light-Medium body, sharp carbonation. It drinks like a 5% but sits at a comfortable 7%. Overall: On the savory side, I would pair this with grilled eel or any type of teriyaki dish. Since the Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale has a pronounced sweetness to it, I believe that it would also pair nicely with a Mochi, red bean tart.

330ml bottle. Cloudy amber-gold with a frothy white head. Bland rice, alcohol, and dry amber ale on the nose. Slight rounded bread flavour, with faint alcohol burn, grain, and a generic non-sickly sweetness.

Fules (1102) - Gyngys, HUNGARY - MAR 4, 2017
Kicsi, nem tl tarts hab, halvny vrs szn, szűretlen. Alig rezhető, jellegtelen malts alapokkal rendelkező illat. desks, kekszes, jobb hjn nyilvn rizses zvilg, halvny komls betssel. Kzepesen testes, erősen sznsavas, alig keserű. Alapvetően semleges zvilg sr, inkbb a lgerekre hasonlt, de teljesen hinyoznak a knes komponensek.
