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!

StilleStorm (1311) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
DAA; Bottle 0, 25L. Batch #741. Brewed 12.20.2011. Opened celebrating New Year’s Eve comming up, and my 900 rating. Excellent packaging, as shown on picture, with bottle wrapped in red tissue paper. Pours small, hazy bronze with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is intense, malt, caramel, overripe fruit, plums, sugar, wood and yeast with noticeable alkohol. Taste follows nose, heavy sweet with a citric and spice touch, warming and sweet plums lasting. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is flat. I like my sweets. Happy New Year!

TET (2460) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Batch # 741, bottle # 10942, brewed at December 2011, bbe at December 2016, over 3 years old but still years to expiry date. Slightly red, dark brown beer, almost without head. Aroma is rich, strongly fruity with notes of dried and fresh fruits, plums, honeydew, some red and sweet berries, raisins, strong sweetness but not too much. Taste has concentrated fruits and berries, honeydew, herbal bitterness is drying the taste. Strong sweetness but that’s in the fruity form, thus it’s not too much. Alcohol can’t be tasted but it’s there. Full bodied, slippery, only slightly sticky in the mouth. Unique, honeydew fruitness from sake yeast is also in this edition. Charming.

bartlebier (3213) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2015
25cl bottle, brewed 11/2011, bb12/2016, odd-one-out contribution by bastarda @Outre-Rhin tasting 05/2015, danke. Soggy oddbrown pour. Aroma is an instant under-the-radar education to unsuspecting nostrils: damp wild rice, umami-meaty, smoked trout and algae, contoured by a stonefruity sweetness of old date and fig jam. More umami yeast textures in taste: grilled shiitake mushrooms, both rice-powered sake and vinous plum wine blending in, creating a meaty mouthfeel like charcuterie, woodcured ham/Schwarzwaldschinken and wheat-derived fig puree. Manages to remain dry and smooth despite all that. Quite a composition.

Bottle. Dark red copper color. Strong vinous aroma of red fruit, cherry and grape, like a port wine. Taste of dry grain, rice, ripe red fruit, red grape, booze, sake yeast and with a warming boozy finish. Quite special and nice.

0.25 l flaske fra Vinmonopolet Lambertseter.mørk kobberfarge, lite karbonert, uten skum. Smaker kaffe, karamell, toffee, gjær, rom, malt. Mye alkoholsmak. En god dessertøl. Litt for søt etter min smak
