I noticed you immediately. You are hard to miss, and I liked you from the very first sight. I believed you are wonderful. Everybody loves strawberries.
„Right away, I know you are wonderful” is strawberry pilsner where two all-time favorites are meeting - strawberries and pilsner.
Experience: Bright white and thick foam covers pilsner whose golden yellow color has a hint of the red from the strawberries. Aroma is dominated by strawberries. Fresh picked in hot summer day from the clearing in the forest.
Aroma may raise some doubt? What if it’s juicy fruit wine what sometimes hides under the beer label. One with tons of berries or juice in it? But fear not. The first sip tells you firmly that it’s good old pilsner. Bitter and refreshing. With a dash of strawberries in the flavor of course.
In the aftertaste, soft berries will caress your tongue.
When brewery from Estonian and brewery from Latvian are brewing together it’s only natural to look toward Livonia. Sklandrausis is a sweet pie with Livonian origin, made of rye dough and filled with potato and carrot paste and seasoned with caraway. And if this does not sound like great beer idea, you do not know craft brewers.
What about lighthouse? Well, it’s a gem hidden in the sea, north of Kolka. You should visit it.
Elamus: Deep red beer is covered with a thick layer of beige foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is intensive and spicy. Molasses, rye malt, dark caramel, and crispy carrot pie.
At the beginning of the sip, molasses are dominating the palate with an added kick from sweet carrots and added spices.
In the end, intense flavors are slowing down, and that’s left is black rye breed with a dash of caraway.
Hellhound, with its three heads, looks at the same time to the past, present, and future. This beer is blending together everything that has been, that is now, and that is about to be.
“Hellhound” is triple IPA, flooded with hops. During three-hour boil we added hops 3 x 3 x 3 times. It’s dry-hopped with 3 x 3 times. In the end, we got 3x IPA that is brim-full of vibrant hops.
Experience:“Hellhound” is different triple IPA. Instead of pushing modern super-fruity hops, one of his head is looking back to the past. When IPAs were bitter. During a long boil, we continuously hopped this beer with an excessive amount of hops. And the result is right here. Actually not, the sip of this beer, supersaturated with hops, starts slow and safe like the tsunami in the far horizon.
Powerful, dank hops are dominating the aroma, leaving malts, caramelized from the long boil so far behind that they are rarely visible. Exceptional strength is not apparent behind the wall of hops, but they are not hidden, but rather amplify the experience.
Bittersweet middle experience quickly scares away malty sweetness and replaces it with bitterness. Rowan berries and wild apples. Are we done now? No, mountains of hops added to the boil will rush to the game like a tsunami to the shore. Bitterness will grab your tongue with an iron grip and twist it mercilessly. You can not deny some sweet delight in this hoppy pain. Are you brave enough to take another sip?
There have been lengthy discussions, and possibly occasional fistfights over the question of suitability of lime wedge added to a hefeweizen. To avoid an embarrassing situation, we added lime to the beer already in the brewery. Here it is, classic German hefeweizen with mountains of lime. If you like it that way, you can enjoy it, free of the burden of the decision, free of the guilt.
The sweet pain of our pointless wondering. Our inability to communicate openly and honestly that leads us to lies and destruction. The siren song of trivial pleasures that wheedles us forever. An express road spiced with carefully picked jokes through opportunities lost. All this has been carefully and with ultimate precision inserted into this beer.
“The Sun Also Rises” is a double IPA, matured in the Cuban rum casket – an escapist distraction to the hedonistic world binding and demolishing the styles, showing you there is no solution there.
