Argouse – brekeriet beer


From brekeriet beer out of Landskrona Sweden comes their “Argouse” a sour farmhouse ale. The beer pours a cloudy orange with little to no head. The aroma consists of lots of barnyard funk and citrus. The flavour is of lemon, barnyard funk, tartness, citrus and some wheat. The alcohol content comes in at 5.5%. This beer was quite refreshing and tasty and we’ll worth picking up!  The price is pretty high in Canada but worth it.

Sourley Wine – brekeriet beer


From brekeriet beer out of Landskrona Sweden comes their “Sourley Wine” a sour Barleywine. The beer pours a cloudy brown red with a tan head. The aroma consists of dark fruits, sweetness and some mild funk. The flavour is of sour cherry, dark fruits, toffee malts, wood, apple cider vinegar, red wine and some brown sugar. The alcohol content comes in at 11%. I love Barleywines and I love sour beers and this takes the cake. Why not blend two amazing styles into one super beer?

Pistonhead Kustom Lager – Brutal Brewing


You always know when you have great friends when they have their friends bring you beer back from their holidays. I was given a can of “Pistonhead Kustom Lager” from Brutal Brewing owned and operated by the employees of Spendrups Bryggeri AB out of Stockholm Sweden. Brutal Brewing is done in the brewers spare time from Spendrups. The lager pours a slightly cloudy golden colour with a white head. The aroma consists of lots of grain, grassy hops and a sweet citrus finish. The flavour is of a lemon citrus, mild grapefruit with grassy hops, grainy malts and a very mild hops bitterness. The beer comes in at 4.9% and is organic according to the brewery. This beer won’t wow North American craft beer fans but it is still pretty tasty and I am glad that I was able to try it out!

Commercial Description:  Crafted in our Brutal Brewing workshop, the Kustom Lager is a smooth, light, no-nonsense brew with a spicy citrus edge. What’s more, the brew is organic.
And it glows in the dark when it’s exposed to light for a short time. Need we say more? Didn’t think so.
