We brewed this ale only with the famous sake yeast No. 7 from Masumi Sake in Nagano, Japan. On advice from Masumi’s master brewers we fermented this ale very slowly at low temperatures to bring out No. 7’s fabulously fruity character. This is a beer, but has some flavors found in a sake. A great combination!

25cl bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours hazyorange amber with no head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, malty, liqourice root, spices and honey. Flavour is sweet and boozy. Full bodied, oily texture, no carbonation. Finish is sweet, bitter and overwhelming boozy.

8.5 oz. bottle shared with drsordr. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of fruit, sweet malts, sake yeast, still a big alcohol burn, caramel, some spicy character, apples, at one point I got a hint of smoke, surprised at how boozy this still was.

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pours hazy dark amber with thin white head. Nose surprisingly fruit for this big beer. Candied apple, toffee, some pear. Taste moderate sweet up front, similar fruit character to nose, fairly crisp for older beer. Mid palate moderate bitter and definite alcohol. Some continue alcohol on finish with some malt.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2015
8.5 oz. bottle from The Wine and Cheese Place. Purchased in 2010, but I guess this was brewed in 2009. Original 17% version. Pours a cloudy amber color with virtually no head. Warms the nostrils, and has a sort of spicy edge to it, too. Notes of sweet and caramel malts, brown sugar and maybe some toasted cane sugar, too, earth, a bit of cardboard, and vanilla. Hard to pin down. Rice and beans? Medium-bodied, with a boozy, spicy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty interesting. I am a sake novice and had no idea what to expect with this hybrid ale.

rosenbergh (7787) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2014
250 ml bottle. #430. Bottled on 08/06/2009. From Alko some years ago. Hazy mid-brown colour with no head. Sweetness, malt, mild farmyardy notes, some dried fruits and alcohol in the aroma. The flavour is... Wow! It's burning... Alcohol is well present. Sweetness, malt, yeast, alcohol and vinous notes. Intoxicating. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"light orange in color, sweet fruity honey-like aroma and a similar flavor. alcohol is obvious, but it’s not overly hot. a little sticky and slick going down. the sake yeast lends a unique aspect, but it’s not elite, and therefore not worth the high $."
