COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En syrlig l p 10 pct. med kirsebr Med Helge har vi nsket at brygge en dessertl der kan nydes i situationer, hvor man elles mske ville vlge en dessertvin en portvin eller en sherry. Helge er af typen barleywine. Barleywine er en engelsk ltype, der opstod da Napoleon forhindrede englnderne i at importere vin. S var gode rd dyre, nr velstillede englndere skulle finde en erstatning for den vin, de nu havde vnnet sig til. S fandt snarrdige bryggere p at brygge en rigtig strk l og uden for megen humle. Barleywine, eller bygvin, direkte oversat. Napoleon mdte frem ved Waterloo, s englnderne kunne igen f vin. S blev barleywine glemt, indtil amerikanske mikrobryggere genopfandt ltypen. Helge er vores bud p en barleywine med frugt. Den har syrlighed fra brrene, og den er sd fra malten. Farven er rdlig. Vi har brygget den p pilsnermalt, mnchenmalt, cholademalt, kirsebr, appelsinskal og humle. Drik den afklet og helst af vinglas p stilk. S bliver den rigtig flot.

From bottle. Pours dark brown, with limited foam. Aroma, when warmer, is rich: cherries under spirit, chocolate, caramel, resin, cookie, a little cough syrup, butterscotch, vanilla. Body is full, oily and a little sticky, with only some initial carbonation Sweetness dominates. Finish is long, with some more sweetness.

eternitye (12) - Wroclaw, POLAND - FEB 9, 2016
I was extremely pleasanty surprised by this beer. Although not falling into the typical style of barley wines (definitely would have expected a barley wine to be heavier, more malty) I found it phenomenal. I love sour beers- so I guess thats a prerequisite. The aroma was very tart, lots of cherries and red currants, taste similar - almost a wild flavor to it. I think the only thing that would make it better would be if it were a bit more dry. The alcohol was completely hidden - dangerous! I would definetely recommend it and buy it again!

tmrmwel (1973) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark amber, with a small creamy head. Aroma is sweet, syrupy malts, with kandi and notes of cherries. Flavour is sweet malt and canned cherries, and not much more really. Pretty one dimensional, and a bit disappointing.
