Easygoing currents of Italian Plum lay across this deeply hued unique ale. Fermented with Sake yeast and blended with malts that bring the body to a dark-er color, she is not as heavily bodied as she looks. These two worlds come together to create an ale with a modern mouth feel as your mind sits and identifies all the unique tones, flavors and characteristics this lovely lady has to offer you.

Pint at Thompsons Brewpub in S.Salem
Darker brown beer with a small tan head..that goes fast.
Woody,earthy,slight perfumed aroma.Dark fruit,fig maybe purple plum..
Taste is more fruity..plum like,still a bit of leafiness and a touch of hop. Interesting.
Palate is fine..smooth with medium body and carbonation.
This is the second sake yeast beer from McMens and I liked them both.

Interesting beer. On tap at the Hillsdale Brewers Fest. Pours a cloudy brown color with a medium white head. A big spicy nose, roasted malts and anise. The flavor is dusty at times, big sweet spices, floral, a bit of roast, chocolates. Pine. Good.
