To Øl Sans Frontiere

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

To Øl is Danish for ‘two beers’, and it’s a collaboration between Tobias Emil Jensen and Tore Gynther, who were students of famous craft brewer Mikkeller and who, like him, are gypsy brewers.  Their goal is to make potent beers, full of flavour and character, and they started brewing back in 2010. This one is aged in white wine barrels, and brewed at De Proef Bruwerij, Belgium.

To Øl Sans Frontière
7% alcohol
A Belgian ale dry hopped with European hops and refermented with Brettanomyces. Deep copper colour. Sweet, slightly yeasty nose with a hint of caramel and fine notes of malt and pepper. Rich-textured palate is smooth with caramel and malt sweetness and some tangy, spicy, herby notes. There’s a little bit of citrus/grapefruit and a hint of apricot, as well as a faint hint of wild funkiness. Salty caramel core anchors everything. Distinctive. 8/10
