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!

larsga (6323) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2013
Small beige head. Hazy deep red body with light carbonation. Intensely fruity cough drops aroma with lime and licorice notes. Bitter-sweet fruity peppery lime taste with polypodium vulgare (sisselrot) notes. Full-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel, slightly oily, with some alcohol heat. Bitterish earthy lime and fruit aftertaste with sisselrot notes again. Like RH1 it tastes like a vermouth, but in this case a slightly unclean, earthy one. Very complex, full of aromas that are hard to identify. It’s a really good and interesting beer, but sadly doesn’t rise even to the ankles of RH1. (0.25l bottle, wine monopoly web order.)

Bottled 250ml@VWPBF Clear amber color, small white head. Berries, fresh wood in the nose. Medium to full bodied. Quite sweet, fruity notes, sugary. Too sweet and straightforward.

robinvboyer (3264) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at the mondiale 2014. Dark murky brown pour, with a light brown head. Aroma of booze, its the first thing that hit me. Lots more going on though, thick chewy malts, charred caramel malts, brown sugar, hard liquor aromas like sherry, and rhum. Lots of fruity esters, some stone fruits and the faintest of citrus aromas. The mouth feel is very thick and viscous, and the carb is super soft. The finish is super sweet, boozy and it manages to get even sweeter. This is the definition of extreme beer. This is over the top, and frankly too much and not worth the price. Interesting, but nothing more.

Vighals (1422) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014
Grumsete brunaktig med minimalt lyst skum. Alkohol, svisker noe sylighet i lukten. Alkohol, med en del sødme mot brunt sukker og mørke frukter, noe vaniljetoner. Uten kullsyre.

lesifflebiere (1355) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
Liquide épais, rouge-brun, pratiquement sans effervescence, au nez en fruits rouge, prunes, et peut-être un début de madérisation. En bouche, c’est du porto qui vient en tête, avec un peu de boisé et d’alcool réchauffant. Houblons en finale. Une boisson intéressante, mais qui semble avoir un peu mal vieilli. Correct, quand dégusté tranquillement.

4oz pour at Churchkey’s Nogne O Tap Takeover. Pours a hazy, caramel amber with a ring of white head. Nose has a lot of caramel, orange, some drying wood pile, caramelized root veg, a little leafy too. Flavor has a lot of barley, heavy corn, whiskey, brandy, raisin. Distinctly starchy. Slick, oily finish. Not my thing.
