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!

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 (4151) - 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.

What a gem of a beer, and I have two :-), so one for ’ron. Gobsmacking aroma, blown away by the depth and intensity of the taste. Did pick the alcohol tang at the end and as it warmed up a bit. This is very very nice. Just is. How they do I don’t know, glad they did.

fellebag (782) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle 25cl. Off white bubbles on top leaving early. Brown red hazy and difficult color. Medium to heavy body. Aroma is homemade lemonade, plum compote and like opening a package of dried dates. Taste is plum liqueur, sugar and sweet caramel.

Another special beer for the New Year. When pouring this beer I could see it was going to "angry". Big and dirty aroma yet hiding a certain subtleness. Once imbibing this is nothing short of fucking gobsmacking. 13.5%? Nasty over the top and then some, but this beer somehow takes that 13.5% and transforms it into a 5% beer with character. One of the best beers I have ever had. Damn you.

Un miracolo eccezionale: le papille gustative sfrigolano e la bocca si riempie di una sensazione euforica di godimento. Corpo denso e sapore dolce e mieloso, infonde calore e si diffonde nel palato come un’atmosfera. Una delle barleywine migliori che abbia mai bevuto. Non so se sono i lieviti del sake a creare questa impressione, o se si tratta solamente di un prodotto fuori da ogni cataegorizzazione, ma non posso che consigliarla caldamente. Cara ma appagante sotto ogni punto di vista!

subcombicio (163) - Marghera, ITALY - DEC 2, 2013
Impatto molto forte, avvolgente. Gusto dolce deciso che poi evolve in tanti altri gusti. Prodotto di qualità che sa farsi apprezzare nella sua complessità !! Una birra per concludere in bellezza una bella serata.
