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!

The honeysweetness from the Sake yeast makes this strong ale an explosive Barley Wine taste bomb. Brewing creativity at its best!

Tranquillity (1454) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2013
Bottled. Almost looks like dark honey, no head. The aroma is very much honey-like, quite identical to some better miod pitny (honey mead) found in Poland. The taste is more like a nordic mead, with freshness of lemons and other citrus. It’s surprisingly sparkly considering the lack of head. The finish could be a bit more exciting, currently it’s more alcohol than fruits.

From bottle. It pours rich golden, slightly hazy with a minimal white head. Aroma is big sweet with peaches, mango and ripen fruits. Taste is again mostly sweet with big fruity notes and slight alcohol. Good stuff indeed.

probstblueribbon (3323) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2013
0.25 L bottle from Bieropholie, cool, tulip. Hazy deep amber with no head. Rich and pungent, fruity, spicy, boozy, peppery, very malty, savory, salty caramel. Medium plus body, very relaxed effervescence. Big and punishing, so much alcohol, quite peppery and savory, bad booze, grassy? I guess there is some sake character; big and very boozy.
