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!

(Bottle, 0.25 l - #12406 - Brewed 20/12/2011 - BBE 20/12/2016, from Alko Arkadia, 20130219) The beer poured reddish dark brown and clear. Its head was small, sparse and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness, vineousness, malts and caramell. Palate was full bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, caramell, hops, fruitiness, vineousness, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty, sweet and bitter. My knowledge of Sake is next to nothing so I’m not able to notice the typical characteristics of that drink in this beer. There was somethign non-beer like here and there. But the heavy maltiness and strong hoppiness pushed this drink to the beer side. Still a weird experiment but better than the 1st edition.

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.

lusikka (7622) - 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.

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.

JorisPPattyn (8800) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2013
No head, flat as a pancake, dark red beer. Syrupy, nuts, X-mas puddung, even some brandy. Sweet, Syrupy, Yet not cloying. I get indeed a bit of the benzene-like sweetness from a Japanese sake. Alcoholsweetness as well. Very slick, alcoholheat, slight spicy-peppery in the aftertaste. Ultra-sweet, but in a good way.

GothGargoyle (1888) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2014
Thanks to Bernt for the bottle. Hazy rust coloured with a pale head. Aroma is raisins, leather, brown sugar, sandalwood. Slightly woody on the palate, starts sweet but finishes quite dry with noticeable booze. Taste is cedar, raisins, brown sugar, sake, hint of soy sauce. Nice, but not as good as the 3rd edition.
