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!

Rödaktig bärnsten, disig, litet skum som försvinner snabbt. I doften finns alla sorters torkad frukt, pomerans, trä, fatkaraktär. Smaken är mycket fyllig med massor av frukt - tropiska, aprikoser - en lite torr träsmak, under den stora sötman finns en balanserande beska, alkoholstyrkan (17%) märks bara som en skön eldighet. En helt fantastisk barley wine, det här är så bra det kan bli!

0,25 flaske (bb. 080614, trade med Sigmund), hjemme 3.juledag: klar, rødlig rav helt uten skum. Sherryaroma med rosiner, sake og alkohol. Sviskeplommer i tillegg i smaken, og alkoholen varmer i magen fra første slurk. Klebrig, sherryaktig munnfølelse og ettersmak. Bringer tankene tilbake til mitt første møte med sake i Japan i 1984. En unik ølopplevelse ettersom dette antakelig var en av de siste flaskene som fantes.

Bottle - Vintage 2009 - Sweet, herbal, booze and sweet spice. Cloudy gold. Sweet, light starch and sweet fruity notes. Complex and hard to describe, but decent.

Red Horizon is almost a liqueur. It is fruity sweet with notes of peach, passion fruit and tangerine. Lovely warming alcohol with full body reminds a lot about cognac. Not the boring and cheap cognac, but a really nice and soft cognac / armagnac. It can (and should not) be simply enjoy a very long time because there really talk about a masterpiece.

Reddish orange color, aroma had some alcohol, orange fruits and spices. Some malt in the body, more tropical fruits and spice, quite a lot of apricots. The malt gives off some nice sweetness, possibly some molasses here also along with plums, all stone fruits. Like a barleywine.

I got this from pushkinwow a few years back and i just avoided drinking it, waiting to share it with someone. Colour is a murky brown/amber. Aroma is alcohol, dark fruits. Flavour is a rich caramel, alcohol not really that strong, apples, vanilla. Truly this is delicious, not sure if waiting 3 years helps or not but it was enjoyable.

Pyryn luona 5/2015. Interesting beer in many was, there was for example a hint of soy sauce in the aroma. Unique.

25cl bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours hazyorange amber with no head. Aroma is fruity, yeasty, malty, liqourice root, spices and honey. Flavour is sweet and boozy. Full bodied, oily texture, no carbonation. Finish is sweet, bitter and overwhelming boozy.

8.5 oz. bottle shared with drsordr. Pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have quite a bit of fruit, sweet malts, sake yeast, still a big alcohol burn, caramel, some spicy character, apples, at one point I got a hint of smoke, surprised at how boozy this still was.
