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!

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 (167) - 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.

Bottle thanks to the Norwegian contingent. Amber pour with little to no head. Sugary aroma. Some booze, brown sugar, vanilla, and candied pear. Yeast, a light funkiness, citrus, and cherry. Flavor is really sweet. Brown sugar, caramel, and candied pear. Vanilla, yeast, cherry, and a subtle funk.

250mL thanks to womencantsail and the Norwegian RB crew. Clear amber pour with low foam, wispy lacing. Nose is mint, orange candies, sticky. Taste is mint, paper, mildew/mold. Odd brewing flaw.

sebletitje (6849) - 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.
