1/2 pint pour into a tall Hitachino Nest glass at Talde, Brooklyn.
Light amber color with rosy undertones...is teh color my imagination since it's called red rice? Thin wisps of foam on teh surface that do lace the glass finely as you drink.
The aroma is very fresh, mildly yeasty, some mild hoppiness...I am not getting any typical Belgian yeast aromas, not sure why this is called a BSPA.
The palate is so light crisp and fresh, this must be the rice. Zinging across teh palate with hints of sourness, balanced really well with that crisp malt and just enough bitterness in teh finish. Unusual and very refreshing and delicious. This is a great and much more flavorful alternative quaffer to go with your yakitori or grilled hamachi collar...I wish more Japanese places would serve it.
Serving type: on-tap
