COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brekeriet White Label
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

Bottle. Pours dark Brown with a creamy grey head. Fresh aroma with notes of nutmeg and sour cherries. Taste is malty, spicy and bretty at the same time. Notes of nutmeg, milk chocolate, salmiak and sour yeast funk. Nice balance. Smooth. Maybe a little too thin? Interesting!
