Poklič: Ahrest

Saison with Gooseberry

More than two years ago, when we were just discussing the idea of starting a commercial brewery, we home-brewed one of our favorite styles of beer – saison, and made a small presentation in one of Minsk spy bars on the eve of the BPR (Belarusian People’s Republic) centenary. In connection with this memorable event, the name “Poklič” (translated as “plea”, “call”) appeared, which eventually became the name of all Malanka saisons. The new beer from this series is being released again, at a very special time for everyone in Belarus.

To add a special twist to our beloved saison, we loaded it with fresh gooseberries. The gooseberry brings acidity and expressive astringency, which are wonderfully combined with the specific Belgian profile of the style. The result is a highly carbonated, golden beer with a foamy white head. It smells of vast barley fields and shady apple orchards. The taste is super dry, crisp, slightly mineral, a little bit sour, with fantastic notes of gooseberry.
