Herslev Bryghus(DK) - Christmas Beer Box(BIO) 50cl
At farm brewery Herslev Bryghus, they brew with their own grown organic grains and as much as possible with organic or wild local ingredients.
They like to brew with the seasons and with as least of interference as possible, like natural wine, they brew natural beer.
With the winter coming, they have released some wonderful beers that are perfect for this season. They're dark a bit more heavier and stronger in alcohol.
Like every beer from Herslev Bryghus, you can taste the full flavours of the organic ingredients and the craftsmanship of the brewer. Strong flavours yet well in balance, with a long after taste. Beers to enjoy on their own or accompanied with delicious and equally well produced simple foods, like cheese, chocolate, charcuterie, and such.
This Christmas Beer Beer box contains six unique beers that are suited well for this time of year;
Porter, a nice and well balanced full and creamy organic porter with hints of chocolate, plums and raisins and even a light scent of mokka. 6,5% abv.
Starry Night / Stjerne Brew, one of our personal favourites, a dark strong Trappiste style beer, brewed with organic Abbey Ale Yeast, coriander and star anise. It has a nice spiciness from the Abbey yeast, balanced out by the Cascade hops. With 9% a strong fellow, but therefor perfect to share in this seize bottle.
Mørk / Dark, a new beer, brewed in collaboration with award winning chocolate gure Mikkel Friis Holm. An organic Imperial Stout brewed with O'Paya chocolate nibs. It's a heavy one for sure, but does not feel that way in flavour. It has a smooth and silky mouth feel, a lot of liquorice balanced out by the Citra Hops, with a nice chocolatey after taste. 9,4%
Jule Øl / Christmas Beer, strikes a fine balance between Christmas spice, sweetness, bitterness and depth, with a beautiful warm red colour. Brewed on organic barley and wheat malts from the fields and tinted with organic oranges. A fresh scent, full of character and easy to drink.6%
India Dark Ale, one of our personal favourites, India Dark Ale is a lovely smooth and creamy organic dark ale brewed with fresh hops and lightly roasted malts.
It's very well balanced with the bittiness and fruitiness from the hops with the sweetness from the roasted malts. 6,2%, IBU 70
Mark Kirsebaer / HAY Cherry, this one from their Hay Series is a special wild fermented so called terroir beer.Brewed with solely ingredients from Herslev and therefor with hay instead of hops. Organic barley malts wild fermented with the wild yeast from the hay and in this variety with local organic cherries. A light and elegant cherry beer, full of juicy fruits, nice tartness from the wild fermentation and the unique hay flavour that makes this a great drink during Christmas Diner, perhaps as an aperitif. 4,8%
