look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - Light golden with a large foamy white head. Normal retention but a limited lacing left over. Lots of sediment.

S - Lots of spice (clove, coriander, and pepper) with a bit of citrus. Sweet smell too.

T - Lots of interesting flavors that are fairly unique. Good amount of grain that provides a good deal of sweetness. Rice and quinoa providing a lot of that. Good amount spice (same as nose). Really unique flavors and combination of the flavors.

M - Light to medium body with decent carbonation. A little watery.

D - I don't think my palate would enjoy more than one as it isn't the most balanced beer. Spices and sweetness grew a bit heavy and a little tiresome.

Notes: Really interesting and unique beer. While it wasn't bad, it wasn't great. It's probably worth a try if you have a chance and want to try something new and different, also it helps a good cause. That said, I probably won't be buying another one.

BBE dec-07. Nice presentation with a clear golden beer and nice and well lasting head. Nose is very orangepeals like, koreander, maltyness and of all that strange ingredients listed not much to notice in nose but shows a litle butter. Taste is far more different and must be the quinica that gives the beer a nice twist. Used rice and sugar gives it a litle watery aftertaste & mouthfeel aswell as the IMO far to low dosed hopbitterness. Still quiet enjoyable and with buying this brew you support farmers in third wold countries so why not give it a shot.
