p/s: I was drinking beer while writing this post xP
Tuak is a traditional alcoholic beverage for the Ibans/Dayaks in Sarawak.
It is basically a rice wine made of rice, yeast and sugar.
Proudly, I drank tuak once before. It was during last year's Gawai.
I had a friend who was celebrating it and he brought us to his kampung for visiting. Thanks to him that I had the chance to grab a taste of tuak.
The tuak my friend served that day was mixed with apple juice.
Maybe because of that, I could still handle the taste of it. I remember that I drank up to 4-5 glasses, accepting my friend's challenge. It was funny when I found that I couldn't walk properly to the loo and I even went for three times! That's normal though. But I guess I won't be able to stand the taste of original tuak compared to apple tuak.
Anyway, I might as well say that I enjoyed the taste of tuak. Just like other wines, more or less, it tasted quite bitter with a bit of sweetness and hotness. I could feel the heat down my throat as I swallowed.
A good try for me, indeed. :D
