COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this ale with the famous sake yeast No 7 from Masumi Sake in Nagano, Japan. On advise from Masumi’s master brewers, we fermented this ale very slowly at low temperatures to bring out No 7’s fabulously fruity character. This product is unfiltered and unpasteurized. Please enjoy chilled! Special thanks to Masumi!

This beer is like a bomb! It detonates in your mouth as nitroglycerine! It’s strong, it’s heavy, it’s cool!!

ShaneJ (588) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle from Beer Cartel (April 2014). Murky mid-brown, zero head, some visible yeast clumps, earthy, musty, intense caramel/chocolate, liqueur-soaked prunes, dense fruit cake, alcohol warmth, slick, syrupy texture. Not my thing.

CaptainTilven (18) - FRANCE - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle beautifully wrapped in red tissue paper and packed in a tin red box. Surprising cloudy brown colour. Smell of litchee, of smoke, of miso. Dry and light as sake in the beginning. Marked sweetness, umami taste. Just love it.

BitchPls (594) - FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
Brown beer with a minimal head and floating flakes of yeast.Intense caramel and dried and ripe fruits on the nose.Medium sweet, earth, mould, ash, dried fruits, light sourness. Medium body, light carbonation. Weird at first but this is actually a really good and interesting beer.

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
250mL bottle, pours a very muddy, murky reddish brown with a miniscule head. Nose brings out notes of oxidation, liqueur, caramel and candied dark fruits -- I guess I get some sake yeast in there, but that could be confirmation bias. Flavour is rich and sweet, with caramel, sugary sweet fruitiness, and muddy yeast. There is a bit of a liqueur-like ABV burn on the finish, but it’s nothing overbearing. The sweetness is a bit too much for me and the palate is too yeasty. Nice attempt, but needs tweaking.

Geokkjer (6016) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep golden with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of malt, bred, yeast, slight minty note and caramel. Flavor is sweet and malty with some warming notes, caramel, yeast and nuts. Medium to full body, soft carbonation.

Travlr (13458) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber brown color. Aroma of lightly spiced butterscotch. Taste is very sweet cotton candy and caramel.

.25l bottle from Alko Arkadia Pours cloudy dark orange with low head. Aroma is dried fruits, alcohol, malts, syrup notes, caramel, flowers and some hops. Flavor is caramel, malts, syrup, nutty, some alcohol, plums, dried fruits and dark fruits. Silky palate, alcohol is well hidden. Swell!
