Unfiltered, Unpasteurized & Bottle Conditioned

Top-fermenting yeast {type Koelsch} . Quite intriguing as nobody appears to have used a "koelsch style yeast" to ferment strong beers such as bockbeer, barley wine, old ale, etc.

The top-fermenting Koelsch yeast has done a marvellous job in creating its distinct subtle fruity esters in this barley wine style while at the same time very successfully fighting its way through all the complex malt sugars thrown at it.

Hops: Hallertauer Magnum, Aurora , Cascade
Malts: Pilsner Malt, roasted malts, Caramalt
Maturation: 4 months

Tasting Notes

bright amber-reddish with full creme-colored foam

fruity, spicy

complex notes of wildberries {raspberries, black currants, elderberries,blackberries, cranberries} mingle with spicy herbal flavors. On the palate the malt sweetness balances well with the roasted bitterness and the aromatic dryness of the hops.

Very long, sweet-dry-spicy, warming
