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!

Testad på Linköping Beer Expo. Grumlig. Mycket god fruktig doft som inte smaken riktigt lever upp till. Först trevlig sötma men sen en eftersmak som inte faller mig i smaken som drar ner betyget.

lillunken (61) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Testad på Linköping beer expo. Fruktig, maltig doft med inslag av alkohol. Mycket godare doft än smak. Smaken är nedtonad med avseende på fruktigheten. Istället är den överväldigande söt med en skum eftersmak som jag inte riktigt kan placera.

markextrae (3703) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2015
25cl bottle at home brewed in 2011. Poured a deep amber colour with a small non to long lasting creamy head. Very sweet aroma, burned caramel, yeast, fruity aroma of ripe apples, plums, red fruit, cherry, some fruity smell in the aroma i can’t place (should be from the sake yeast...) some kind of spiced medical tea herbs, coriander. Leaving a long sweet finish. Very smooth and Silky mouthfeel. But i can say i’m a huge fan of the herbal / fruit notes that are coming from the sake yeast.

rafael52 (879) - Łódź, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Kolor: jasno brązowy z lekkim zmętnieniem.
Piana: jasno beżowa, drobnopęcherzykowa, niezbyt obfita i szybko znikająca co przy tej zawartości alkoholu jest jak najbardziej normalne.
Zapach: głownie likier chmielowy, w tle nuty owocowe, melanoidynowe. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale w szlachetnej formie bez żadnych nut spirytusowych.
Smak: solidna baza słodowa z aromatami karmelu, melanoidyn. Słodycz skontrowana goryczką. Na finiszu wychodzi chmielowa gorycz i nutami alkoholu.
Wysycenie: średnie jak najbardziej pasujące.

suurjuust (2794) - ESTONIA - FEB 21, 2015
Clear brown beer, almost no head. Dense malty nose, caramel, fruit hints. Malty flavor, alcohol warmth, bready notes, more caramel, coconut. Finishes dry with sake-sweetness and wood. The dryness lingers. Interesting stuff. Shared by martjoobolut, thanks!

Rather dark brown appearance, with practically no head. It tastes and smells sake, caramel and sweet fruits and raisins.
