Mikkeller/Lervig/Lindheim Pop That Cherry

Mikkeller Denmark

Mike, Ingeborg & Mikkel got together in August 2014 and brewed up a slightly tart, cherry beer. With wheat and pale malts, fermented with various yeasts strains and cultures, then the fun part, a huge amount of sour cherries grown in Lindheim fruit farm in Telemark Norway. Its resembling a Kriek without the extreme sourness.

This cherry beer was brewed using a turbid mash as they do in lambic production, and fermented with various yeasts and cultures to impart a pleasant tartness without being to puckering. Kirsebær juice from Lindheim’s farm in Telemark (southern Norway) provides the intense sour cherry flavour that dominates this beer. This beer tastes beautifully today, but can be stored for years as the cultures will continue to do their thing, and further develop the complexity.
