HITACHINO NEST RED RICE ALE

Hitachino Next Red Rice Ale. This is strange. Very strange.

It's big, too, as well as strange. Did I mention strange? And big? I mean, 7% big?

It has a very weird smell, with sour and sweet at the same time and hardly a trace of malt but a distinct trace of something like freshly picked mushrooms. 

There isn't a lot of carbonation and the mouthfeel is a little watery, but the whole thing is like sucking on a flower soaked in bitters.

You get both sour and sweet on the tongue early, then bitterness that isn't overwhelming and then some odd version of malt and a bit of spice.

And it all kinda works together. It's actually a ripper little beer, but you wouldn't want a session on it.

 

7/10
