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!

Foffern (1168) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy orange brown colour with a small, ivory head. A complex and sweet aroma with tones of oak, dried fruit, smoked meat, leather and some alcohol, hops and wild berries. The flavour is also rich and more sweet. I find brown sugar, leather, wood, warming alcohol and some fennel, Madeira and roasted malt. Has a rich and sticky mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A powerful and complex beer, and is really one of a kind.

Bamsen78 (2983) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
On tap @ Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours hazy dark copper brown with small off-white head. Complex aroma of fruit, malt, caramel and hops. Sweetish, fruity flavour, with malty and caramellish notes, and bittersweet presence of alcohol. Lingering aftertaste of oaken barrels and fruit. Good.

AgentAle (603) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Aroma is a light sweet maltiness with some caramel notes and roastiness. Some fruit aromas pouring through. Taste is a rich malt character paired with a sweet fruitiness that is met with some liquor snap. However for 13.5% it is shocking smooth. Head pours thin with a light brown body.

Color caoba turbio con espuma color crema poco duradera. Aromas de fruta confitada, almibar, naranja y licor. En boca es densa y dulce con toques nuevamente de naranja y un final amargo equilibrado y seco. Muy rica.

GothGargoyle (1142) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Thanks to Bernt for the bottle. Hazy rust coloured with a pale head. Aroma is raisins, leather, brown sugar, sandalwood. Slightly woody on the palate, starts sweet but finishes quite dry with noticeable booze. Taste is cedar, raisins, brown sugar, sake, hint of soy sauce. Nice, but not as good as the 3rd edition.

Tranquillity (1410) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled, 2797th bottle. Looks like raisin juice. The aroma is strong but not that great. The taste is raisins, grapes, honey and with amazingly long finish.

reebtogi (4103) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 16, 2014
250ml bottle pours a hazy light brown color with a small white head that leaves no lacing behind. Aroma is light fruits and alcohol with hints of yeast. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with some light fruity notes and slight alcohol burn in the finish. Medium body and mild carbonation. Very interesting and inviting brew. Highly recommended for a unique tasting experience.
