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!

Bottle 25 cl, BBE 12/20/2016. Pours amber in color with thin bubbly off-white head. Sweet honey, cantaloupe and that sticky hoppyness in aroma. Perhaps that cantaloupe kind of sweetness comes from the sake yeast they used. Sweet in taste at first, some honey and ripe garden fruityness but also a bit of malts is there. Slightly bitter in aftertaste as well, but the sweeter side gains victory here. No sign of the alcohol. Pretty good as a sweet dessert beer.

laiti (8084) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
25 cl bottle @ wPBF’13, bottle #12481. Batch #741: brewed 20.12.2011, BBE 20.12.2016
Vertical with 3. edition.
Aroma has caramel, malty notes and yeast. Also some ripe fruits. Flavour has alcohol, some American hops, raisins and ripe fruits. A bit too sweet but nice anyway. The alcohol cuts the sweetness. Less aggressive and more boozy than 3. edition.

Tranquillity (1882) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottled, 2797th bottle. Looks like raisin juice. The aroma is strong but not that great. The taste is raisins, grapes, honey and with amazingly long finish.

Color caoba turbio con espuma color crema poco duradera. Aromas de fruta confitada, almibar, naranja y licor. En boca es densa y dulce con toques nuevamente de naranja y un final amargo equilibrado y seco. Muy rica.

AgentAle (1544) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2014
Aroma is a light sweet maltiness with some caramel notes and roastiness. Some fruit aromas pouring through. Taste is a rich malt character paired with a sweet fruitiness that is met with some liquor snap. However for 13.5% it is shocking smooth. Head pours thin with a light brown body.

On bottl with Visionthing, thanks a lot! Amber color, some foam. Aromas of sake yeast, malt dried fruits and some corn: high aroma intensity . Full body & high complexity. Sweet, but balances quite ok
