Danish: Hjul & Stejle - en RugBrett. Julen er en tid præget af tro og myter - men troen på Jesus, Julemanden og engle burde jo høre fortiden til. Vi afliver symbolsk Julemanden med følge og udbringer en skål i Hjul & Stejle: En øl hvor humlens rene bitterhed og rugmaltenes særlige udtryk komplementeres af det tørre og krydrede Brettanomyces-præg. Hjul & Stejle passer godt til julefrokosten - hvad enten du tror eller ej.

English:: "Hjul & Stejle" is an old execution method called "The Wheel" in English which was often used for blasphemers and the like. Christmas is a time ripe with beliefs and myths - yet belief in Jesus, Santa Claus and angels ought to be a thing of the past. We symbolically execute Santa Claus and the like and propose a toast in Hjul & Stejle: A beer where the clean hop bitternes and distinctive flavour of rye malt is balanced by the dry, spicy contribution from Brettanomyces at work. Hjul & Stejle is a good match for any Christmas lunch - whether you believe or not! Launched november 2009.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 27, 2011
Hazy amber.Aroma of cloves, lemon zest and funky sourness. Fresh spicy taste, a litte sour, with a hoppy bitterness cutting through, not exactly your average X-mas-beer, Served cold, it has its own warmth all though rather reserved in its immediate appearance.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2010
Draught at Monks Porterhouse, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy amber colour with a small creamy white head. Strong aroma of brett, yeast and lemon-zest with hints of dough, caramel, red currant, peat and white pepper. Weird but interesting! Medium-bodied with semi-dry notes of brett, dough, peat, lemon-zest, currant-leaves, nut-shells and orange-peels. Long semi-dry finish of brett, paint, yeast, jasmine and over-riped red grapefruits. Funny, almost bizarre stuff!
