Bottle from Vika enjoyed at homedouglas88 (9194) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 25, 2013
Dark copper, thin laced beige head, wonderful laces. Smells of malts, yeast esters, some phenols, fantastic fruity aromas. Medium sweet, super fruity, some caramel, fantastic yeast flavors. Oily texture, medium bodied, flat carbonation. Moderate bitter finish. This beer is awsome. The sake yeast really makes this something special. Fantastic and fruity. Glad they only malde it a 13.5 abv; much more drinkable than the strong sibling RH1, and better too
Bottle thanks to Dallas. Cool tin can. Pours a cloudy reddish color with a medium white head. A big fruity nose with pronounced sake notes. A sweet flavor with grapes, cognac, smoke, earthy, caramel. Very good. Unique. Bamsen78 (5403) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 15, 2014
On tap @ Setka Pub, Poznań. Pours hazy dark copper brown with small off-white head. Complex aroma of fruit, malt, caramel and hops. Sweetish, fruity flavour, with malty and caramellish notes, and bittersweet presence of alcohol. Lingering aftertaste of oaken barrels and fruit. Good. Finn (7547) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2014

DAA; Bottle 0, 25L. Batch #741. Brewed 12.20.2011. Opened celebrating New Year’s Eve comming up, and my 900 rating. Excellent packaging, as shown on picture, with bottle wrapped in red tissue paper. Pours small, hazy bronze with a short lived off-white head. Aroma is intense, malt, caramel, overripe fruit, plums, sugar, wood and yeast with noticeable alkohol. Taste follows nose, heavy sweet with a citric and spice touch, warming and sweet plums lasting. Body is full, texture is sticky, carbonation is flat. I like my sweets. Happy New Year!

Pours a deep ruby red with a pinkishly brown head which does not last long. Aroma is toffee, caramel, lychee and slight cherry drops. Taste is caramel, toffee, buttescotch, slight cherry and malty sweetness. Long and dry slightly raisiny finish. TET (3034) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Batch # 741, bottle # 10942, brewed at December 2011, bbe at December 2016, over 3 years old but still years to expiry date. Slightly red, dark brown beer, almost without head. Aroma is rich, strongly fruity with notes of dried and fresh fruits, plums, honeydew, some red and sweet berries, raisins, strong sweetness but not too much. Taste has concentrated fruits and berries, honeydew, herbal bitterness is drying the taste. Strong sweetness but that’s in the fruity form, thus it’s not too much. Alcohol can’t be tasted but it’s there. Full bodied, slippery, only slightly sticky in the mouth. Unique, honeydew fruitness from sake yeast is also in this edition. Charming. bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2015
25cl bottle, brewed 11/2011, bb12/2016, odd-one-out contribution by bastarda @Outre-Rhin tasting 05/2015, danke. Soggy oddbrown pour. Aroma is an instant under-the-radar education to unsuspecting nostrils: damp wild rice, umami-meaty, smoked trout and algae, contoured by a stonefruity sweetness of old date and fig jam. More umami yeast textures in taste: grilled shiitake mushrooms, both rice-powered sake and vinous plum wine blending in, creating a meaty mouthfeel like charcuterie, woodcured ham/Schwarzwaldschinken and wheat-derived fig puree. Manages to remain dry and smooth despite all that. Quite a composition. Gorm (1899) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2015
