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!

AshtonMcCobb (3764) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a lovely red to brown with a nicely proportioned head. The nose is all about jam and biscuits - jammy dodgers strikes again. The taste is loads more of the same - strawberry jam and biscuits. The palate is medium to full bodied with a rich creamy texture and a very elegant.

Foffern (1405) - Bodø, NORWAY - APR 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy orange brown colour with a small, ivory head. A complex and sweet aroma with tones of oak, dried fruit, smoked meat, leather and some alcohol, hops and wild berries. The flavour is also rich and more sweet. I find brown sugar, leather, wood, warming alcohol and some fennel, Madeira and roasted malt. Has a rich and sticky mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A powerful and complex beer, and is really one of a kind.
