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!

Calisky (1534) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 24, 2015
Freiburg testing - courtesy of Bastarda, many thanks Almuth. Couleur rouge brune trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez fort fruits rouges, caramel, alcool, fermenté (le saké?). Gout assez complexe, levuré, fruist rouges, salé, note de viande froide, jambon sec, umami. Bon corps. Bière très particulière, mais a essayer.

bastarda (172) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 23, 2015
sublte sweetish nose of plumwine and tealike herbs with a hint of oak; tastes drier than to be expected by the aromas, shiitake mushrooms and earthy/woody and even salty notes balancing white grapes, caramel, plums and some forest strawberries. Complex. Landscapelike.

Pyryn luona 5/2015. I enjoyed this more than the first edition, this was more complex and not too alcoholic.

aleksander9 (694) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 10, 2015
Dark hazy red with white head. Aroma is candy, red berries, licorice and fruity. Sticky palate. Aftertaste is candy, malt, caramel, licorice, dry and some floral notes. Overall: well hidden abv. Interesting brew, but nothing special. Lacks complexity.

TET (1992) - 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.

BIK89 (26) - SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Testad på Linköping Beer Expo. Grumlig. Mycket god fruktig doft som inte smaken riktigt lever upp till. Först trevlig sötma men sen en eftersmak som inte faller mig i smaken som drar ner betyget.

lillunken (40) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2015
Testad på Linköping beer expo. Fruktig, maltig doft med inslag av alkohol. Mycket godare doft än smak. Smaken är nedtonad med avseende på fruktigheten. Istället är den överväldigande söt med en skum eftersmak som jag inte riktigt kan placera.

fugitive (1550) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 18, 2015

markextrae (1847) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2015
25cl bottle at home brewed in 2011. Poured a deep amber colour with a small non to long lasting creamy head. Very sweet aroma, burned caramel, yeast, fruity aroma of ripe apples, plums, red fruit, cherry, some fruity smell in the aroma i can’t place (should be from the sake yeast...) some kind of spiced medical tea herbs, coriander. Leaving a long sweet finish. Very smooth and Silky mouthfeel. But i can say i’m a huge fan of the herbal / fruit notes that are coming from the sake yeast.
