Taiwan White Grape and Lychee Beer Review

I bought these at Ang Mo Supermarket in Toa Payoh for S$3.20 and saw them at NTUC for S$3.90. Wonder why NTUC is so expensive for most things, yet cognitive dissonance makes old people go and shop because of 2% off. Still, with 2% off, the price is much higher than most other supermarkets, unless you are comparing 7-11s.

I'm a fan of Taiwan Beer (and a fan of Wu Bai) and when I see this beer, I had to try it. I've been drinking a lot of Chi-Hi in Japan and I absolutely love it!

Well, after trying the Taiwan Lychee Beer, I feel that they seem a little sweet -- a little too sweet. Compared to Chi-Hi, it seemed to lack the delicate refreshing taste, and the after taste seemed a little off. Next, I tried the White Grape Beer. To my disappointment, it was much worse. It is no where close to the Suntory Chu-Hi, and it made me like the Lychee beer earlier.

Trying the Lychee beer again, I must say, it starts to grow on you like cheap store brand soda. I love my Shaw's Pineapple Soda!

In conclusion, if you can't get Chi-hi in your country and you can get this Taiwan beer, it is not a very good compromise, just get a Chi-hi if you can and be done. Otherwise, try the Lychee Beer. Have more than 1 can. The taste does grow on you.

Overall: 3/5
