COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Bottle. Quite boozy, and definite sake characters, malty, and feels like its going to be sweet, but the alcohol seems to detract from the sweetness, and balances it a bit. Having said that, I couldn’t see myself drinking more than half of a small bottle of this.

vtafro (3795) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle. Amber pour with a couple of bubbles. Sweet malt, fruit, and other sweet aromas. Malty, sweet, sake, dry flavors. For 17% actually drinkable.

Geokkjer (6016) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours deep golden with a tiny off-white head. Aroma of alcohol, rice, white asparagus, malt and bread. Flavor is sweet and warming with some caramel, oxidized notes, bread and fruitiness. Full body, soft carbonation.

slowrunner77 (6083) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 29, 2014
"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 $."

Yorker (1344) - Herning, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2014
25 cl bottle @ home. Pours dark amber with no head. Aroma and flavour are caramel, dried fruit, and alcohol - with an alcoholic finish.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2014
8.5 ounce bottle, with some age obviously. Pours a hazy brown with not much of head (and there was barely a hiss upon opening). Aroma of toffee, caramel, earth, cardboard, tart and dry fruits, faint hints of booze. The taste is sweet caramel, sunflower seeds, nuts, honey, oats, booze, candied berry like fruit notes, vanilla. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation, fairly hot. Solid beer. Interesting.

Mora2000 (5855) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Milky amber pour with a white head. The aroma is fairly heavy on the caramel and alcohol, as expected with a beer that is 17%. The flavor is very sweet with a lot of caramel notes and brown sugar. There is also a strong tobacco character with a lot of cigar notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

M82 (319) - Kansas, USA - JUN 9, 2014
Consumed New Year’s Eve 2010 into Stölzle Grandezza Snifter 21oz at 45°F

half inch white head quickly settles to very thin sheet and delicate ring, bright pinkish orange softly hazed body

Pears, apples, honeydew, quite sweet, slightly floral, some characteristics similar to white wine and brandy, warmer temps introduce sweeter woodiness, alc is present but not overwhelming

Med body thickens at higher temps, warming, low carbonation

Bottle. 5 years today. Pours brownish/cobber, no head. Some coating. Aroma is malty, clean, sweet, fruits, bit alcohol. Taste is really sweet. Caramel and red fruits. Nice alcohol! Bit burning but in a comfortable way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
