Beer Geek Nation Episode 47: Hitachino Nest Red Rice Ale video beer review

This beer was easily one of the strangest beers that I have ever had. While this beer is technically considered a Belgian ale, I would have not guessed that in a million years. Check out the review for the full details on this odd beer.

Complex sake like flavors with malt sweet notes. Hints of strawberries in the nose and palate. An intriguing mix of sake, malt , and bitter notes in the finish.
