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

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of anders37. Pours an orangey brown with a small beige head. Odd farty, yeasty, spicy nose with a chemical tang. Medium body, heavy xmas spices while the Brett adds a minerally and farty edge - sort of like band aids. Odd and not overly thrilling. May develop in a more interesting way with age. 131212

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Colin. And big thanks to Paul for ensuring this would be a gusher. Pours ruddy brownish with a foamy off-white head. Interesting beer. Some Christmasy spices, a bit of brown bread, moderate funk. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Further spices to finish, light sweetness, lingering funky twang. OK.
