I was quite impressed with this. I It has a red amber tone with a medium head. It’s just different and worth the try.

YantarCoast (1512) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 14, 2017
330ml bottle from RusBeerShop in Moscow. Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is rice, caramel, malt, fruit. Taste is light sour, caramel, alcohol, light bitterness. Not my kind of beer.

Parmenion777 (355) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2017 Bottle - Pours a hazy reddish amber colour with a medium sized light beige coloured head that settled. A spicy grainy aroma, rice wine, malt and caramel. A grainy malt taste, spicy wood, rice wine with a some berry fruit flavours. Some bitterness in the finish.

Luneylane (233) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 7, 2017
A bottle from Jason's near NCCU, drunk at home. Aroma: hay, berries. Appearance: slightly hazy, dark amber, 2-3mm. off-white lacing. Palate: medium-bodied and slick, average carbonation, complex, flavoursome finish. Taste: well-balanced, medium sweet and bitter, a noticable taste of berries at the finish. Unusual, a pleasant surprise, I like it.

bewyder (543) - FRANCE - OCT 18, 2017
Ambrée rousse, trouble, malt doux, le côté céréale ressort pas mal et reste doux (le riz certainement), notes fruits légers. Assez particulière. Bouteille 33cl achetée chez Nicolas, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue le 30/09/2017.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2017 Like this beer very much. Not as much citrus as the white ale, but still very crisp.

MRMedellin (326) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - SEP 14, 2017
Orange cloudy beer, standard carbonation, white head that dissipates quickly. At nose it has several caramel notes from the malt. The flavor is bitter sweet with a slight bitterness in the aftertaste.

hesiodus (88) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 7, 2017
sweet, some red berries, nice reddish color, light sour, dry, tasty, some rhubarb, nice brew

Guruhso (998) - Grindsted, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2017
Backlog. Bottle. Aroma of malts and rice, hints of caramel, also some sweetish and somewhat strange notes of undefined fruit. The flavour has a sweet mix of malts and some strange undefined fruit again, low bitterness, alcohol is noticeable. Some hops in the aftertaste

ol0_0le (1) - JAPAN - SEP 2, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2017 Very sweet beer using ancient rice. Because it smells good, it is easy to drink, alcohol is 7%
