Aike – Imperial Gose
Quince and Thai basil: a great combination, I promise. Those of you who have had the Vikerkaar gose (brewed with rhubarb and rosemary) know that the combination of fruit and herbs can be absolutely winning!
The nose from the Äike is dominated by yellow stone fruits, but the basil is also already wonderfully integrated. This relationship continues on the palate, complemented by a dry mild acidity and a fruity-mineral finish.
Põhjala Brewery was the first in the new wave of Estonian microbreweries, starting as a gypsy brewery at the end of 2012. In April 2014, we started brewing in our own brewhouse in Tallinn’s Nõmme district and at the end of 2018 moved to a new facility in Port Noblessner, featuring a 50 hl Rolec brewhouse and a tap room with Texas bbq-centered cuisine. We brew small batches of hand crafted ales, using the best malts, loads of mostly New World hops and a relentless passion for good beer. When creating our beers, we are inspired by Nordic nature, Estonian new cuisine and the work of our fellow small brewers.
