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!

ciocanelu (354) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 20, 2015
Hazy, dark orange color with a bit of beige head. Aroma is intense and complex. Dried dates and figs, caramel, pumpkin pie spices, cognac. Taste starts sweet with the dark fruits and brown sugar and gets more balanced, even a bit bitter, in the finish. You can get the high ABV but not pungent or disturbing in any way. Leaves the mouth quite dry, without any alcohol burn. Body feels quite thick but not syrupy or sticky in any way. Has some carbonation, making it dangerously drinkable for 13.5%. I am quite impressed with this one. Really complex, with many layers of flavors ranging from intense, fruity sweetness to a nice, nutty bitterness in the aftertaste.

Port-like color. Hazy brown, hints of red. Aromas of apple-brandy. Prominent alcohol..a bit like a meeting point between sake and port. Starts sweet, raisin like. Long bitter aftertaste, but not sharp. Pine of Juniper finish. Tasted with cheese platter. Excellent with strong Camembert, blue cheese, and taleggio.
