Saaz is a blend of younger and older wild ales, that fermented and aged for 8 months up to 2,5 year. The beer was dryhopped for over 6 months in an oak foeder with Czech Saaz hops. In the nose you will come across a grassy, herbal smell which is characteristic of Saaz. Flowers like chamomile and roses, fresh peaches, some funk and hay are also found in the aroma. In taste you will experience a slightly bitterness from the hops, a balanced sourness with a fairly dry finish which can remind you of a natural cider.

This beer is suitable for longer ageing. The bitterness and sourness of the beer are expected to merge. In addition, it’s always interesting — often fascinating and amazing — to see a beer develop over time in the bottle. Especially with a dryhopped wild ale. When drinking fresh, we recommend to let the beer open up in the glass.

Store our beers upright or lying down in a cool, dark place. Our beers are best enjoyed between 12 and 14 degrees Celsius.

Tommie Sjef is a beer blendery from Den Helder, the Netherlands. We make wild ales which are fermented and aged in wooden barrels. All our beers are fermented using our own wild yeast and bacteria culture. This gives the beer, after extensive ageing — 1,5 up to 4 years — in oak barrels, its typical slightly sour taste, and eccentric aromas. A bottle of Tommie Sjef often contains a blend of beers originating from a selection of barrels, differing in age. Every barrel develops differently, each showing its unique characteristics. It is the art of blending to add balance, depth and joy.
