Ölbeat 081: Hiisi Pecko Brett IPA

Brewery: Panimo Hiisi
Country: Finland
Style: Sour Ale
Abv: 6,3 %

What about the beer?
Colour is sparkling golden yellow with huge white head. Aroma has "horse-sweaty" yeast, sour lemon and sour apple. Taste gets going with strong, slightly bitter lemon sourness. Sour citrus and fruity yeast take quickly the command. Near the finish some sweet pineapple and kiwi make a visit. Aftertaste is sour, yeasty and bitterly dry.

This works. Sour and fresh brew. There's the taste of summer here. There's more Belgian ale like yeast and farmhouse ale like lemon here than IPA bitterness, so this goes to the sour ale category with me. Anyway, excellent delicious beer from the Jyväskylä dudes again.


The scent of the stables and the feeling of a farmhouse ale try to force the choice towards southern state country music. If you like country, feel free to put a Dolly Parton album to the gramophone. Instead, I selected something with a sting without turning into an Englishman in New York (idiotic wordplay here, right?):

The Black Crowes: Sting Me (YouTube)

From the 1992 album The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion, the song was written by Chris Robinson and Rich Robinson.
