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!

SirLimpsalot (2251) - SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2013
@ Stordirren; Lite diskret doft men en mycket fyllig och het smak med stora toner av frukt och nötter. Känner en tydlig smak av den spännande jästen. Mycket speciell, god men det räcker nog med ett litet glas. Tydlig portvinsvibbar. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

larsga (6240) - 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.)

robinvboyer (3128) - 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.
