Good beer, but has a slightly strong middle of rice (duh!). 8.5% ABV is not noticeable at all, and I never would have guessed.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2017 Fragole a merenda! Amo questa birra anche se affrontando la seconda bottiglia si sente una certa pesantezza alle gambe, i sette gradi sono ben mascherati da corpo ed aroma, bravi questi Kap che col riso chi sanno fare.

Probada en el club de cata Olut de Sabadell, en formato botella. Dulce al principio y más amarga al final

Al club de tast de l’Olut, massa empalagosa... amb gust afruitat (fruit vermell), tot i que segurament és degut a l’arròs vermell que desconec.

Sorprendente. Diferente en nariz que en boca. Empieza dulce i termina un poco ácida. Botella compartida en Club de Cata Olut

Shared bottle at Olut Sabadell. Pink gold, crystal clear. Strawberry aromas. Sweet start moves to slightly sour and not sweet. Dry and creamy.

12oz bottle consumed at Caphe Banh Mi in Alexandria VA. Poured a semi-ruby red color with a little pink hue. Fluffy, white head. Aroma was sweet malts, light grain. Light cherry blossom. Flavor was light sweet citrus notes. Nothing over the top. Drinkable for what it is and what i was eating.

Scipio (1085) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. The aroma is mellow. Its balanced between caramel, cherry, bread, with mild traces of earthy malts and grassy hops. The taste is sweet, very dry, and has a very subtle bitterness. A heavy strawberry flavor stands out here, but its odd that it really isnt fruity. I think I do get a slight sake taste, somewhat grassy, cola, a bit of oak, hints of licorice. Most everything here is very subtle, but Im digging it. Short strawberry aftertaste. Medium bodied, smooth in texture, and average in carbonation. Unusual. I liked it.
