COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Denne belgiskinspirerte red alen ble brygget i samarbeid med Redchurch Brewery, et lite håndverksbryggeri i London. Det ble gjæret med trappistgjær for å få balanse og kompleksitet. Ølet er komplekst, men subtilt med smak av røde frukter og krydder kombinert med unike Brettanomyces og sherryeikefat. Brygget forsiktig og med lidenskap.

This Belgian-style red ale was brewed together with the Redchurch Brewery, a small artisanal brewery located in London. Primary fermentation with Trappist yeast, it achieves balance through complexity. It’s deep yet subtle, with flavours of red fruits and spice mixed with the uniqueness of Brettanomyces and sherry oak barrel. Created with a soft touch and passion.

Malts: Pilsner, Rye, Crystal, Roasted. Hops: Aurora, Styrian Golding.
Aroma: a myriad of smells including malt, plums, pepper, and nuts with a touch of smoky character.
Food pairings: roasted duck, washed-rind cheeses with fig compote, forest-berry tart.

It’s a collab between Lervig Aktiebryggeri and Redchurch Brewery from England. It’s a bottle of their ’Softly Softly’, a Brett’d and oaked Belgian red ale at 6.66% ABV. It pours a dark deep red colored body with a slightly beige head. It looks quite nice! The aroma is kinda funky and fruity at the same time. There’s a nice red gummy bear note to it almost, with some toasted nuts and yeast too. Interesting! The taste is much more on the yeasty side. Big notes of that classic Belgian yeast, a nice maltyness but with a nice amount of funk or brett too. The taste wears off pretty fast though. Bummer, because it’s actually pretty nice! I do miss some bitterness or some more sourness. As it is right now it’s pretty malt and yeast forward. A good beer, but it lacks that little something to make it truly great.

33cl bottle purchased at Oedipus Brewery, Amsterdam and poured into a tulip glass on 07-May-2017. Reddish amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is tart and fruity - caramel, berries and sherbet; a little sour. A nice collaboration.

Keg. Dark brown. Speckly head. Dominated by a woody barrel character. Fruity and malty sweetness vying with sourness. Decent stuff.

Bottled. Cloudy copper colour, rich head. Cardboard and caramel, some red apples and hay. Very slight rred berry tartness. Sweet and bold, square and unrefined. Some cobwebs artificially placed on caramel and red berries. Lifeless.
