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!

AshtonMcCobb (2119) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a lovely red to brown with a nicely proportioned head. The nose is all about jam and biscuits - jammy dodgers strikes again. The taste is loads more of the same - strawberry jam and biscuits. The palate is medium to full bodied with a rich creamy texture and a very elegant.

Bottle shared with Ashton McCobb - Cheers! Well... didn’t expect that pour. Looks like a bitter! Swells sweet, biscuity and red fruits. Repeats this on the taste. Finish is more sweetness. Interesting, but hard to say whether it’s good.

laiti (4949) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
25 cl bottle @ wPBF’13, bottle #12481. Batch #741: brewed 20.12.2011, BBE 20.12.2016
Vertical with 3. edition.
Aroma has caramel, malty notes and yeast. Also some ripe fruits. Flavour has alcohol, some American hops, raisins and ripe fruits. A bit too sweet but nice anyway. The alcohol cuts the sweetness. Less aggressive and more boozy than 3. edition.

lusikka (5359) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
250 ml bottle @ WPBF 2013.
Pours a cloudy amber colour with a white head. Aroma of sweet caramel, raisins and some nuttiness. Flavour of sweet caramel, rather strong grassy hops, floral hops and slightly berryish notes. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a rough, floral, sweet caramel finish. Seems to be in balance, but I think this won’t improve after aging.

Bottled@vPBF11. Amber colour, not much head. Aroma is fruity, mild toffee and some raisins. Flavour is alcohol, fruits, some toffee and mild gluelike notes. A bit burning, but still somewhat in balance.
