Danish: De bornholmske landeveje snor sig smukt igennem det kuperede terræn; og både pindsvin, pindso og pindgris ynder at gå deres natlige ture på dem. På bornholmsk kaldes det pindede kræ for ”Jylkat” og alt for tit ender dens svipture under et bildæk. Men også her kan den bornholmske ordskat råde bod: Hvad der før var en ”Jylkat” bliver nu til en ”Jylsplat”. Lidt makabert måske, men meget træffende. En lignende metamorfose har fundet sted i denne hvedeøl.
Oprindelig en belgisk ”Wit” af komposition, har den fået tilsat ferskplukkede stikkelsbær, solbær og ribs under hovedgæringen. De naturligt forekommende vildgærceller på bærrene har efterfølgende indledt en rolig eftergæring som siden har forandret øllets smagsprofil. Hvad før var præget af citrus, coriander og sødme har nu forvandlet sig til en knastør, lettere tanninbitter, bærpræget og syrlig sag. Dette i selskab med det høje naturlige kulsyreindhold gør at øllet er en fin og forfriskende tørstslukker. Bærrene har under deres lange ophold i tanken afgivet deres farvestoffer til øllet som i tidens løb har skiftet udseende fra mat gul til klar lyserød. Ved udgangen af maj har ”Jylsplat” ligget på tank i 22 måneder og kan i princippet holde sig ”evigt”. Gæret med belgisk Trappistgær og vildgær.

English: Secondary fermentation on gooseberries and red and black currants, giving it a nice wild yeast infection. Fruity, leathery and dry thirst quencher. ABV 5,2 %. “Jylkat” is a porcupine in the Bornholm dialect; whereas a run-over porcupine on the street becomes a “Jylsplat”.
