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!

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2012
Bottle. Unclear, dark copper colored body topped by a light beige head made up of very small bubbles. The aroma has a tropical style fruityness as well as sugary notes and alcohol. Hints of cellar-ish caramel. Some higher alcohols, strawberry hints and a faint peppery touch. Sweet on the palate, warming in a pleasant way, with a soft carbonation, and flavors of tropical fruits, sugar and alcohol. Some caramel hints. Warming, sweet and fruity finish. Well, too warming and sweet maybe, but it’s sort of balanced, and I like it quite a lot. 120330

Bottle, at Kristiansand Ølfestival. Looking at my notes from the early sample back in March, I find a beer that’s pretty much the same as back then, only softer, smoother and less alcoholic. It’s still warming on the palate, in a pleasant way, and probably a bit too sweet, but there’s a reason for the small bottle, which by the way is nice to share. There’s lots of fruityness both in the aroma and flavor, obviously a result from the yeast’s work, and towards the end I think of canned fruits in syrup, with a touch of caramel. A nice beer, looking forward to a more thorouth inspection when it’s available in stores. 121013
