This beer is a collaborative brew betweeb Belgium’s De La Senne brewery, and the utterly unique-sounding Pravda Beer Theatre from the Ukraine.
Situated in the centre of the city of Lviv, in a 20th century theatre building, the brewery features its own brass band that performs most nights for the enjoyment of the beer drinkers. Sounds like a place that would be well worth a visit (when that is possible again!)
The beer they created is a saison, using rye, spelt and wheat, and dry-hopped with a Ukranian hop called Zachrava.
A cloudy straw colour, with a herbal aroma and a light farmhouse yeast. The body is of grainy cereal, not really sweet at all but with a hint of fruit in the background.
The beer is dry, with a sustained herbal bitterness that lasts through the beer. In the aftertaste is a little citrus note. Interesting and refreshing.
