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!

Rating #2211 - 2015.12.02 - Beer School @7Degrees. Pours a bubbly ruby colour with a decent off white head that fades rapidly. Aroma is caramel toffee malt, dired fruit, raisin, prune. Lots of similar flavours on the palate, lots of floral notes, and a bit of a syrupy, boozy texture. Neat.

Nice looking bottle in good looking metal case. Smells like sweet syrup, apricot, clementine and almonds. Taste is very fruity. There is apricot, pineapple, orange, sweet honey. Maybe some hint of spices. As it warms up you can sense some alcohol, but I think it just adds to the taste. This got allot of the qualities of Nøgne Øs sake, and the mouthfeel is almost the same. Like a perfect blend I would say. I would love to eat sushi drinking this. People should have an open mind before drinking this beer though, it’s not for everyone. For me this beer is incredible, unique and very very tasty. The only beers I could compare this with if you think of ABV and fruitiness is Red Horizon 3 and Samichlaus. This is much better than Samichlaus. A must buy if you see this somewhere.

Thx Kai !

Head: Small, creamy/dense, off white/cream coloured
Colour: dark ’redish’ amber
Smell: is amazing ! way better than the 1st edition i had, alcohol is still prominent but isn’t overwhelming and lets through those wonderfull aromas of malt, barley, a slight sourness and somewhat salty ( not like the flavour but more like the smell of the sea or how oysters smell ), slight alcoholic sweetness and also slight touch of fennel
Taste: start is some alcohol with slight notes of peaches and barley, a touch of herbal honey as well, then comes in some medium bitterness, with a nice sweetbitter yeasty flavour, also get hints of caramelised/grilled pineapple and a slight cabbage like earthyness, the end is mainly malt and bitter, bit mouthdrying, aftertaste is dry hay and a couple minutes after comes some rose water.
This one is really good ! way better than 1st ed. now i’m curious about the 3rd edition !

Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Red, no carbonation or head. Sweet, but not sticky. Very complex. Caramel, fruit, sweet plums, warming alcohol. More interesting and successful than the first edition.

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.
