Old in the Fridge: Nøgne/Mikkeller Tyttebær

Bottled in January 2008, Tyttebær is now in perfect condition for quaffing. A collaboration between two of Scandinavia’s best breweries, Danish Mikkeller and Norwegian Nøgne, this wild ale is brewed with lingonberries as well as Brettanomyces yeast and Lactobacillus bacteria, combining to impart tart, fruity, mineral and vegetal characters to a delicate wheaty base.

Intense in the nose but mellow on the palate, with sprightly carbonation to emphasise the rosehip, cranberry, and lemon-rind like notes imparted by the mountain fruit and unusual microorganisms. We only have a couple of this beautifully aged ale in our fridges and at only £9.90 a bottle, they are one of the best beer bargains in London.
