Brøckhouse Påskebryg

Formerly brewed at Brøckhouse
Hillerød, Denmark
8.5% Belgian Strong Ale | 60 Ratings | Spring Seasonal |
Danish: En stærk højtidsøl, der er brygget på de bedste danske påsketraditioner og en belgisk overgær. På trods af det høje alkoholindhold på 8,5 procent er øllen lys og let og dufter herligt af forår. Den har en flot lys gylden farve med et dejlig hvidt skum. Påskebryggen har en god, nærmest honningagtig sødme fra de rigelige mængder af Pale Ale-, hvede- og karamelmalt, der bliver afbalanceret af en moderat humlebitterhed. Aromaen er behagelig frugtagtig med en krydret duft af tørret frugt og muskat. Passer godt til påskelam. Bør serveres ved 10-12 grader.

English: A strong and festive ale brewed according to Danish Easter traditions using Belgian top-fermenting yeast. In spite of the alcohol content of 8,5%, the ale is bright in both colour and taste and has a magnificent scent of spring. Brøckhouse Easter Ale harbours a full, almost honeyish flavour, from the abundant contents of pale ale, wheat and caramel malts which are balanced by a moderate hop bitterness. The aroma is pleasantly fruit-like with a spiced scent of dried fruits and nutmeg. This ale goes extremely well with Easter lamb roast. Best served at 10-12 degrees celsius.
