Une bière unique et de prestige qu’il faut découvrir.
This beer has changed ABV erratically during the years of production. Started at 7.5%, subsequently 6%, it stands actually (2009) at 9%. Only the brewery knows whether it will stay at this level, since they never bothered to signal differences, and always considered it to be the same beer...

sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 17, 2007
(Bottled, BBE 2009) Very dark red with a smallish, lasting and tanned head. Neutral aroma of black currants and some raspberry stones. Quite dry and acidic flavor with currants and some blueberry. Pretty foamy-carbonated, almost medium-bodied, but slightly thin palate. Almost like a fruit beer, but not very enjoyable. "The beer that can make you dream" … of better beers, maybe?
