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!

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2013
Bouteille à @ 4de Gents Bierfestival. De couleur ambre laissant un léger filament doré sur le verre. Arôme est malté avec un bouquet caramel prenant. Un houblonné léger se dégage et ponctue le bouquet par qcq notes de pin qui s’entremêle avec un côté plus liquoreux - résineux. Palais présente malgré ses 13% une certaine complexité. La bière reste aisée à boire quoique complexe et idéale à partager. Le tout est épais sur une pointe sucrée et légèrement fumée alternée par une présence houblonné qui parvient à se créer une place dans ce labyrinthe. Le tout rappelle un jeune barley wine.
