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 on October 20, 2013. Thanks to Skakapa! Marked 2012.
Dark brown to black color, big fluffy brown head. Brett, sort of sweet scent. Reminiscent of fermented tate, hard to describe. Metallic, wheat aftertaste. Semi smooth mouthfeel, low bitterness.

mzaar (3463) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2013
Flaska (tack NordicV) BF Oktober 2014. Mörkbrun med gräddigt smutsvitt skum. Tunn arom, kryddnejlika och hästsadel och apelsinmarmelad. Mycket bättre smak och det är ju vad som gäller, eller hur? Kryddnejlikan är betydligt intensivare, följs upp av en örtighet och citrus.
