COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Рады представить вам наш новый сорт, который мы сварили совместно с пивоварней Σολο (о. Крит), а точнее с легендой пивоваренного мира - Къетилом Джикьюном, бывшим главным пивоваром культовой норвежской Ngne .
С Къетилом мы познакомились еще в 2012 году на фестивале касковых элей в Англии. Идея же совместной коллаборации родилась полтора года назад, и планировалась на май прошлого года - когда можно собирать еловые побеги. Из-за очень насыщенного расписания перед уходом из Ngne , Кьетил не смог к нам приехать, но мы таки сварили еловый IPA по рецепту, который был придуман в процессе долгих переписок. И вот, Къетил приехал к нам в Ивантеевку, уже как владелец и главный пивовар Σολο!
Мы обнаружили много общего во вкусах и поэтому был выбран не совсем обычный сорт - кислый сэзон с сухим охмелением! Как выяснилось мы очень любим и кислое пиво, и сэзоны, и сорта с сухим охмелением. Кислинку мы получили за счет использования методики, называемой kettle souring (закисление сусла перед варкой смесью штаммов лактобактерий), а также приправили хорошим количеством черносмородинового сока, который также дал прекрасную фруктовую кислинку. Пиво бродило при высоких температурах, что полностью раскрыло характер соответствующих бельгийских дрожжей. Сухое охмеление прекрасными австралийскими сортами хмеля завершает картину этого пива.

Bottle shared at home. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a fluffy white-head. Smooth blackcurrant is very pronounced in the aroma, yoghurt, lacto, tart fruits, fresh citrus, light funk. Taste is extremely smooth, quite sweet and not as sour as expected. This is a surprising one. Not very saison like but lovely blackcurrants in there.

Great!

visionthing (5072) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2017
44cl bottle from Kaubamaja, Tallinn. Wasnt too tempted by this one before I noticed that it was a collaboration brew with Σολο, then I got curious. And Im glad I got curious. This is nice! Sour, refreshing and surprisingly pleasant! Pours slightly hazy golden with a rather large, white head. Aroma is certainly fruity and the lacto notes is quite evident. Pleasant berry flavour and a quite decent sourness, surprisingly pleasant and refreshing. Could easily buy this one again.
