COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En syrlig øl på 10 pct. med kirsebær Med Helge har vi ønsket at brygge en dessertøl der kan nydes i situationer, hvor man elles måske ville vælge en dessertvin – en portvin eller en sherry. Helge er af typen barleywine. Barleywine er en engelsk øltype, der opstod da Napoleon forhindrede englænderne i at importere vin. Så var gode råd dyre, når velstillede englændere skulle finde en erstatning for den vin, de nu havde vænnet sig til. Så fandt snarrådige bryggere på at brygge en rigtig stærk øl og uden for megen humle. Barleywine, eller bygvin, direkte oversat. Napoleon mødte frem ved Waterloo, så englænderne kunne igen få vin. Så blev barleywine glemt, indtil amerikanske mikrobryggere ”genopfandt” øltypen. Helge er vores bud på en barleywine med frugt. Den har syrlighed fra bærrene, og den er sød fra malten. Farven er rødlig. Vi har brygget den på pilsnermalt, münchenmalt, cholademalt, kirsebær, appelsinskal og humle. Drik den afkølet og helst af vinglas på stilk. Så bliver den rigtig flot.

I was extremely pleasanty surprised by this beer. Although not falling into the typical style of barley wines (definitely would have expected a barley wine to be heavier, more malty) I found it phenomenal. I love sour beers- so I guess that’s a prerequisite. The aroma was very tart, lots of cherries and red currants, taste similar - almost a wild flavor to it. I think the only thing that would make it better would be if it were a bit more dry. The alcohol was completely hidden - dangerous! I would definetely recommend it and buy it again!

tmrmwel (1759) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark amber, with a small creamy head. Aroma is sweet, syrupy malts, with kandi and notes of cherries. Flavour is sweet malt and canned cherries, and not much more really. Pretty one dimensional, and a bit disappointing.

jamaty (1867) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Marrón rojiza, clara. Escasa espuma. Aroma dulce de cereza. Igual que el sabor, en el que el tono frutal de las cerezas prevalee sobre el resto. También toques de caramelo. Final algo flojo.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2015
It’s a beautiful dark red beer with a small head. The aroma has notes of earthy cellar and light cherries. The flavor is both sweet and sour in a nice way, a slight touch of smoke in the first sips. cherries and a touch of dark chocolate. The finish is pleasantly tart.

Bamsen78 (5031) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2015
Bottle. Pours hazy dark ruby with airy off-pink head. Clear aroma of malt and fart and dust, with some vinous notes. Sweetish, malty flavour, heavily offset by vinous and fruity, berrylike notes. Touches of yeast. Rough and slightly dusty aftertaste with vinous notes. Well balanced and not bad but the dusty notes are more interesting than good.
