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!

Bardzo ładny, słodki aromat kandyzowanych owoców, syropu owocowego, lekko winny. Piany praktycznie brak, barwa bursztynowa, przejrzyste. W smaku dziwne, z jednej strony słodkie, likierowe, z drugiej jest wyczuwalna goryczka, z trzeciej jest silny smak sake (tak mi się wydaje), który akurat średnio mi pasuje. Daje trochę wrażenie nieułożonego alkoholu. Sam alkohol bardzo mocno rozgrzewa przełyk. Piwo zdecydowanie słodkie, nie czuć tych 100 IBU, goryczka co najwyżej średnia. Dużo ciała, wysycenie niskie. Ciekawe, dobrze ułożone, aromat lepszy niż smak. Warka do 20.12.2016r.

StilleStorm (1217) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
DAA; Bottle 0, 25L. Batch #741. Brewed 12.20.2011. Opened celebrating New Year’s Eve comming up, and my 900 rating. Excellent packaging, as shown on picture, with bottle wrapped in red tissue paper. Pours small, hazy bronze with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is intense, malt, caramel, overripe fruit, plums, sugar, wood and yeast with noticeable alkohol. Taste follows nose, heavy sweet with a citric and spice touch, warming and sweet plums lasting. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is flat. I like my sweets. Happy New Year!

Benzai (11360) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle @ home. Almost opaque hazy reddish color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, a hint of sweetness, lightly alcohol, grapes and fermenting fruits. Taste malts, sweetness, alcohol, very ripe and overripe fruits. Decent body, average to medium carbonation. Quite disappointing actually.

ShaneJ (771) - 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 (87) - Nancy, 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.

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 (10577) - 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.
