COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Danish: En syrlig øl på 10 pct. med kirsebær Med Helge har vi ønsket at brygge en dessertøl der kan nydes i situationer, hvor man elles måske ville vælge en dessertvin – en portvin eller en sherry. Helge er af typen barleywine. Barleywine er en engelsk øltype, der opstod da Napoleon forhindrede englænderne i at importere vin. Så var gode råd dyre, når velstillede englændere skulle finde en erstatning for den vin, de nu havde vænnet sig til. Så fandt snarrådige bryggere på at brygge en rigtig stærk øl og uden for megen humle. Barleywine, eller bygvin, direkte oversat. Napoleon mødte frem ved Waterloo, så englænderne kunne igen få vin. Så blev barleywine glemt, indtil amerikanske mikrobryggere ”genopfandt” øltypen. Helge er vores bud på en barleywine med frugt. Den har syrlighed fra bærrene, og den er sød fra malten. Farven er rødlig. Vi har brygget den på pilsnermalt, münchenmalt, cholademalt, kirsebær, appelsinskal og humle. Drik den afkølet og helst af vinglas på stilk. Så bliver den rigtig flot.

Hm.... Ja, når jeg drikker en Barley wine, regner jeg med at få en tyk alkoholstærk øl. Jeg får så en mellemting mellem barley winen og en geuze...... Hørnbeer foreslår selv at den kan bruges til risengrød. Jo, det ville jeg nok også vælge den til.

4.1
rumore (947) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 3, 2016
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.
