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!

Nice beer, the sake yeast really does have a very fruity and unique nose, some in the taste but a little harder to find in the sweetness. Abv is well covered, overall an interesting, big and very well done brew.

(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with brief frothy beige head. Fruity nose with dried fruit, orange peel, caramel, apricots, resin and slightly earthy, yeasty aromas emerging. Quite vinous. Fruity taste with notes of orange, citrus peel, dried fruit, apricots, caramel and generous amounts of resinous hops in a sweet and fiery finish with lots of warming alcohol. Full body, quite sweet with a long alcohol burn. Subtle is not really the word here. Quite powerful, but actually quite nice for sipping on a cold winter’s night.

Excellent piece of brewing here, and I suppose it serves its purpose (whatever that may be). 2nd time having this, seems a bit hot this time around, last time seemed like it did a better job of hiding the alcohol. Big ricey barley wine.

L’éthanol est corrosive au premier coup de nez mais s’estompe un peu avec le temps. Le caractère évident du barleywine, fruité et caramélisé, s’impose mais une chose étonnante se pointe vers la fin, la touche sake. C’est difficile à expliquer mais le fait que l’alcool goûte autant n’y est surement pas étranger.

Shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks a lot, Brad! The beer is transparent and orange hued with no head and no lace. Mkay... The aroma is minty, sweet, fruity, herbal, grassy. The flavor follows suit, with a pronounced mint presence. Sweet and boozy with a throat-warming finish. That said, the beer isn’t super hot or messy, just strong. At 17% abv, a couple of ounces is all you need. Worth a try. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 05-29-2012

Got this in my very first trade ever, IP in Norway. Big thanks to Mr. Erik for introducing me to trading, and giving me this bad boy. Pour a murky hazy deep n’ dark orange (brown), with a very small white head. Aroma of leather, malt, slight smoke/roast, sake(?), caramel, alcohol, dark fruits, banana, basement, old leafs.. A lot of funny stuff going on.. (something green as well) The taste is sweet up front, with a long and slightly bitter aftertaste. Quite some heat in the throat, but nothing that wasn’t expected. Oily and quite sticky body, with a surprisingly fizzy carbonation. This sure is some funny stuff...
