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!

scoth (679) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours clear copper brown with almost no head, very fine lacing. Malty aromas, toast, caramel, vanilla, cherry, plum, venous, sake, pepper. Medium-thick body, boozy hot, very low carbonation. Heavy sweet, just a touch sour, with a light dry bitter finish.

BillHick420 (460) - NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
Pours red/brown with a small effervescent white head that dissipates quickly. Not much on the nose, some malts. Strong arrival of sweet aroma, some bitterness. Some earthy yeast. And the main aroma I can make out is... American beef jerky. An odd beer.

Rödaktig i kroppen. Spritig i aromen, sötma, röda bär. Väldigt kraftig smak. Besk eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Well, today seems like as good a time as any to taste this beer, which has been in my fridge for years. The best-before-date is 2014-06-08, batch nr is #430 and brewed-on-date is 2009-06-08. It pours an amber liquid, with a small head which after a minute or so retracts to a bubbly halo around the edge, and the bubbles just keep getting smaller. The aroma is complex, somewhat sweet, notes of berries and fruits, with a kind of artificial strawberry thing dominating; also some pear and a bit of caramel? A note of alcohol as well. Flavorwise it follows the aroma, with some malty flavors and some nutty flavors. There’s not much more I can say. The 17% abv is very noticable. The mouthfeel is full and almost oily. Lingering flavors of burnt sugar and fruits - (artificial) pear-ish notes, nutty notes and something else. Quite on the sweet side. Not as special (flavorwise) as I thought a beer made with sake yeast would be - but maybe my expectations were unrealistic. Very much a beer I’ll be slowly sipping for the rest of the evening. I’ll update the rating if I discover anything worth adding.

2014, January. The color is slightly hazy orange amber with a small head. The aroma has notes of ripe fruits, raisins, burnt sugar, caramel, light yeast and malt. The mouth feel is oily. The flavor is sweet with notes of yeast, loads of ripe fruit, light alcohol, burnt sugar, caramel and there is even more alcohol in the finish.

Bottle from the Norwegian contingent. Amber pour with a thin ring of off-white foam. Sweet sugary aroma. Vanilla, citrus, sweet red beans, brown sugar, and yeast. Flavor is really sweet and sugary. Brown sugar, citrus, vanilla, and caramel. Yeast, booze, and some vinous character.
