Summer. Lazily flowing time and thoughts wander around unguarded. The summer heat slows down busy hubbub of the city life and nature is friendly towards us. In the outside, there is the sweet aroma of the linden flowers and bright shining sun.
Brewed to celebrate our memories of last summer, using wildflower honey from Estonian forests and replacing our summer Sun with big bright orange.
Experience: The reddish brown beer has a beige head that is quickly devoured by all the added oranges. In the aroma there is orange. Not some abstract citrus flavor but bright orange. Like in your favorite triple sec.
Flavor is dominated by honey and malt. It drags your thoughts to the pastry area. Old school honey bread, if anyone still remembers it.
In the aftertaste, bitter zest will balance the sweetness of the honey.
Bière de Garde is a beer style that is similar to the beret. Every beer aficionado has heard about it, but it’s not widely available.
It does not compete with jeans or leather jacket either. This strong-minded beer needs time to mature and time to enjoy. It opens itself slowly for eye who has the patience to spot timeless elegance.
„Beret is Always in Vogue“ is our interpretation of this classic French beer style. The hint of novelty is given using Barbe Rouge hops.
Experience: The glass is filled with the thick white foam and bright golden beer.
In the aroma, there are spicy phenols from the yeast, but they are quickly tamed by red berries from Barbe Rouge hops. They decide to call it a draw and settle on the couch with the bowl of toffee and barbaris candy.
Flavor starts with the ripe and sweet berries but starts to veer off towards sour and sweet malts. Fortunately, hops will intervene, and balance is restored - what malt sourness with berry sweetness is playing in your tongue with slightly grassy and unique bitterness.
Oh, and you can try Rorschach test on lacing left on the glass.
Maybe this sunrise arrived unexpectedly because you have been having a good time with friends around the small bonfire at the beach. Perhaps it’s your own private spot where you can fish undisturbed, alone with your thoughts.
Maybe you just woke early to enjoy the sound of the forest waking up and have a refreshing skinny-dip. It’s your secret pöace to enjoy the sunrise.
“Sunrise at the secret beach” is hoppy and juicy IPA meant to be enjoyed in summer.
People in the North have always known that ice-cold beer did not mix well with the freesing cold weather. So for the wintertime they brewed a strong beer spiced with herbs and honey, suitable for heating over the fire.
„Mulled Ale“ has been brewed with those old traditions in mind. This ale, spiced with exotic herbs and Estonian honey, tastes best when heated to quite high temperatures and raisins, cinnamon or dried berries added to the liking.The brave ones can add a lightly beaten egg yolk.
