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!

Sigmund (6281) - Tau, - JAN 20, 2013
250 ml bottle in silk paper and metal cylinder, #10654, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 13.5%, IBU 100. Cloudy dark reddish brown colour, low off-white head. Unusual aroma of red beets, cheap wine, mild spices and some fruit. Very sweet and alcoholic flavour, red beets and ripe berries, distinct hoppy bitterness in the finish. Not really my cup of tea, but worth a go.

Douberd (4402) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2016
(Nøgne Ø Red Horizon 2. edition) Bottle 250 ml from Cuso, thanks! Served into a snifter and tasted side to side with 3rd edition at home, ABV 13.5% Deep red to light brown colour on the body, a bit hazy, with a small bubbly tan head on top, low retention. Aroma of light dark fruits, cheese, alcohol. Taste is sweet with red and light dark fruits, ligt wine notes, dust, well hidden alcohol for the most part. Medium body, soft carbonation. Good, I expected more to be honest.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2016 Botella 25 cl de cervezalandia. Tomada en Oviedo en el momento. (r153). Lote 741 elaborada en 20..12..2011 hasta 20..12..2016. color ámbar miel tostado muy turbio con poca espuma casi ninguna de color beige. Aromas y sabores maltas tostadas dulces con caramelos también tostados acabando con ligeros quemados y algo de amargo. Toques ligeros y frescos al final de vinos blancos y cavas. Cuerpo medio a intenso fino algo denso y espumos, con 13.5 vol que se notan desde el principio. Bastante buena. Para repetir sin duda.

patricks110 (2376) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2016
Supremely fruity and malty with big molasses, caramel and toffee malt notes, prunes and raisins with a rich dessert tart like quality. The pour is a murky, muddy taupe with a non-existant light beige head. The aroma is warm, rich and surprisingly fruity. There is a steady carbonation despite no head. Nicely done. aged 3 years mellowed out with no hop character left.

Plovmand (7658) - Helsinge, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2016
Bottle. It pours hazy amber with a small off white head. The aroma is very sweet and spicy. Loads of malty notes and some hops. Honey like sweetness in the flavor and lots of spicy notes. Sweet and light smoked finish. Fruity and bit chalky.

gEUS (1676) - Linden, BELGIUM - JAN 15, 2016
bottle at home - teku glass, side by side 2. and 3. 2.: Pours clear dark amberish orange, no head. Aroma of aged hops and some smoke. Nice sweet body, some herbal bitters, some sake in the finish, with sweet bready malts. 3.: cloudier, darker. nose is more malt. Body and taste are likewise. Too bad they are over their point.

Inbreak (4091) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2016
Old rating rerated 08.01.2016, 0,25l bottle @ Nama:
Tiny shortlasting head, nice golden amber color. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet - nice oxidized, raisins, dark sugar, minerals, caramel malts, nuts, candied sugar, hay, alcohol, burnt caramel. Taste is slightly sweet and burnt, dark sugar, raisins, burnt caramel, peat, ashes, leather, alcohol, minerals, grass, yeast, weeds. Medium bitterness, slightly dry boozy mouthfeel. Nice, but I think it used to be better before, and very different from what it has aged to become...

MarcoDL (3693) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2015
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.
