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!

25cl bottle generously offered up at the 4de Gents Bierfestival, 2013, thanks Tim and team for gathering up some bottle of this. It pours with a slightly cloudy copper body that really has no head to speak of, so I won’t. The aroma offers up roasted malts, muted brown sugar coated pine hops and a sliver of resiny grassiness. The taste is smooth with a bit of smoke added to the experience. I also get cherries, thick sludgy malts, some sticky pine hops and then nectar sweet rich malt enhanced booziness. This is smooth and slick and a great sipper where the ABV is actually pretty well hidden.

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.

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.

teddybeer (2224) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 13, 2014
[From my backlog, tasted @ Cimmeria and shared with David Lowenbrau]. Coppery colour with a minimal and quickly diminishing off-white head. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, some molasses, caramel, sweet white wine. Flavor is slightly sweet, with some sour notes, toasted sugar, slightly alcoholic very good hidden by a mild bitterness, notes of molasses.Mild sweet final, not cloying with honey traces and light bitterness.

esp0r (1980) - NORWAY - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark copper, thin laced beige head, wonderful laces. Smells of malts, yeast esters, some phenols, fantastic fruity aromas. Medium sweet, super fruity, some caramel, fantastic yeast flavors. Oily texture, medium bodied, flat carbonation. Moderate bitter finish. This beer is awsome. The sake yeast really makes this something special. Fantastic and fruity. Glad they only malde it a 13.5 abv; much more drinkable than the strong sibling RH1, and better too
