COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We brewed this ale with the famous sake yeast No 7 from Masumi Sake in Nagano, Japan. On advise from Masumi’s master brewers, we fermented this ale very slowly at low temperatures to bring out No 7’s fabulously fruity character. This product is unfiltered and unpasteurized. Please enjoy chilled! Special thanks to Masumi!

Brown beer with a minimal head and floating flakes of yeast.Intense caramel and dried and ripe fruits on the nose.Medium sweet, earth, mould, ash, dried fruits, light sourness. Medium body, light carbonation. Weird at first but this is actually a really good and interesting beer.

Rather dark brown appearance, with practically no head. It tastes and smells sake, caramel and sweet fruits and raisins.

Bottled. Pours hazy, deep golden with a little, lacing off-white head. Aroma of sake, caramel, yeast and spicy notes. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily to creamy texure and soft carbonation. An excellent Ale. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Inbreak (4860) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2016
Old rating rerated 08.01.2016, 0,25l bottle @ Nama:
Tiny shortlasting head, nice golden amber color. Aroma is slightly rich and sweet - nice oxidized, raisins, dark sugar, minerals, caramel malts, nuts, candied sugar, hay, alcohol, burnt caramel. Taste is slightly sweet and burnt, dark sugar, raisins, burnt caramel, peat, ashes, leather, alcohol, minerals, grass, yeast, weeds. Medium bitterness, slightly dry boozy mouthfeel. Nice, but I think it used to be better before, and very different from what it has aged to become...

RexTalionis (3549) - FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle 25 cl, BBE 12/20/2016. Pours amber in color with thin bubbly off-white head. Sweet honey, cantaloupe and that sticky hoppyness in aroma. Perhaps that cantaloupe kind of sweetness comes from the sake yeast they used. Sweet in taste at first, some honey and ripe garden fruityness but also a bit of malts is there. Slightly bitter in aftertaste as well, but the sweeter side gains victory here. No sign of the alcohol. Pretty good as a sweet dessert beer.

25 cl bottle. Pours cloudy brown with a small to fully gone head. Aroma is toasted malty, caramelish and toffee. Sweet, caramelish and toffee. Lingering caramelish and sweet. Mild bitter and toasted malty finish.

laiti (8138) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2013
25 cl bottle @ wPBF’13, bottle #12481. Batch #741: brewed 20.12.2011, BBE 20.12.2016
Vertical with 3. edition.
Aroma has caramel, malty notes and yeast. Also some ripe fruits. Flavour has alcohol, some American hops, raisins and ripe fruits. A bit too sweet but nice anyway. The alcohol cuts the sweetness. Less aggressive and more boozy than 3. edition.
