Brettlehem is a Scanian Christmas beer spiced with cloves, that gives a special character by fermentation with the mixture of different yeast strains, particularly those of the genus Brettanomyces. The beer is carbonated naturally by fermentation in the bottle which gives a thin layer of yeast sediment on the bottom. The taste of this beer continues to develop in the bottle for a long time

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Theydon of Bois. Hazy amber beer, small pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and dry. Light bretty start. Ripe generic fruits. Light caramel malts. Light finish. Lacks cohesion but fine.
