noway to describe it that I know of . never tasted anything like it . Seems to be sweet but in a weird way. Stings in the throat after swallowing . Has a alcohol taste but not sure if that is really a lot of alcohol or just a taste it has .
try some after a week or so . Just suck some out with a turkey baster or something and put in fridge to settle for a while or it will be real nasty .

After several batches I don't think I like it. I definitely like the clear stuff on top but I really don't like the chalky stuff underneath. I don't think I'll be making anymore. I'm putting my non-beer energy into apfelwein and/or meads from now on.

you have to put it in the fridge for a couple days or so and allow that crap to settle down . It is very easy to mix back in so I used a turkey baster and sucked most of it out slowly and left a little in jar so as not to get the crap.
Try making it with red rice or black as it is sometimes called . It has a different taste kind of like weak cranberry juice . Might grind that stuff as the hulls are very hard and I think it might work better .

I've made different batches with different rices and different yeasts and I've decanted the good stuff off the chalky stuff. Overall, I just don't think it's worth it to me for how much good clear stuff I get. I mean I don't hate it I just find it pretty Meh overall.

Day 8: Smell is less vanilla sweet, more tart with maybe a little alcohol(could be co2 burn).
