Bottle Conditioned Ale. The Best Before Date in 10 Years.
藤原ヒロユキさんプロデュースによる日本では初となる賞味期限10年の本格的ボトルコンディショニング(壜内熟成)エールが誕生しました。ボトルコンディショニングの醸造テクニックは、一次発酵が終わったビールを壜詰めする際に生きた酵母を再び添加し、熟成庫で温度管理を行いながらコンディショニングを行います。酵母は壜内で活性し続けています。新しいビールはバーレーワインよりアルコール度数を抑え、軽やかさを演出する為に小麦麦芽を加え、2つの銘柄を用意しました。 ボトルコンディションのビールは酵母が活性しているため、ボトルは耐圧性のあるシャンパン用ボトル (750ml)を使用しています。打栓も通常のビールに用いる王冠ではなくシャンパンと同じものです。(新型のエコ・タイプのもの。抜栓後も留め直しが出来るためグラス売りも可能。)どちらも壜内熟成の為、エージングが進むことにより一層豊かに華開きます。
Brewed at Kiuchi Brewing for Beer Writer Fujiwara Hiroyuki.

Pretty silly beer. Like a sour BW with little character or verve. Cherry, tannins, wood, under carbonated body. Sour lactic finish. Pretty dull. Imagine a flat lou pepe that has been left in the sun and this is what you might get.

Bottle at RBJG 2 Grand Tasting, thanks KyotoLefty. Light brown with a small brown head that leaves some lacing. Sour grape aroma. Mild sour aroma. Doesn’t taste like a barley wine.

Travlr (23323) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 1, 2013
Bottle at RBJG courtesy of KyotoLefty, thanks! Cloudy amber color. Aroma of sour plums, prunes. Taste is sweet and sour summer fruit, in an odd combo.

KyotoLefty (9847) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2012
750 ml bottle at Asahiya, shared among a group. Aroma of peaches, melon, wine, as well as a paint-like solvent character. Pretty pink-red color with lace. Flavor of blood orange, peach, melon, wine. They said it was aged in wine casks, but I haven’t been able to confirm it yet. Tasted like it could have been. Much better than the Blanc, and probably will be better in the couple years, though I don’t see it being very good in 10. They’ll probably sell some for 10 times this silly price at that time.
