The forest has a deep influence on Estonian culture and cuisine. This heritage is embodied in our Forest Series.

In these editions, we twist rare botanicals, forest ingredients and Estonian folk-medicine with ancient methods into absolutely extraordinary beers.

Laugas

12.3% Barrel Aged Imperial Gruit

Retired

A traditional ale, spiced with Estonian herbs, caraway and juniper berries, aged in bourbon barrels.

Taste: Rich sweet malty notes come through, before being dashed through with the somehow citrusy taste of juniper berries drying by a fireplace. Earthy spices then appear, including long forgotten herbal aromas that are strangely familiar, as if remembering a childhood hike through nature, or the wild, gnarly, primeval end of your grandmothers herb garden.

As the beer warms, even the bitterness starts coming through as a rounded, medicinal quality rather than aggressive hops.

Finally, the gentle carbonation lifts the creamy notes from the bourbon barrels, adding a delicate smoothness to the beer.

Serve 12–16˚C
