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!

super rich malt nose, with some elegant oxidation/sherry notes. some alcohol as it warms. a bit estery/fruity. slightly hazy medium amber/gold with a hint of a red highlight. the head quickly falls to large bubbled lacing. smooth, smokey, viscous. the alcohol is well masked by the rich body, malt flavors. almost a saltiness to it towards the finish, before some bitterness pokes in. very warming. after two sips, the alcohol is very easy to notice -- but it still doesn’t taste like a 17% beer.

Honey and syrup thickness. Golden orange. Burnt red. No head. Nose is nose is like and English barkeywine. Toffee and figs. Hop bitterness and caramel. Ugh. Tastes terrible. Major boozy and chemical taste. Sweet medicinal finish. Do not buy. Whoa.

Pours clear, golden brown in color. Nutty, sweet and complex, one of the most enjoyable beers I've tasted. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

Tranquillity (1641) - 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.
