Mikkeller, the contract brewery based in Copenhagen, Denmark, will be bringing more of its Spontan Series of beers to the United States in the coming weeks.

The Spontan Series, which means “spontaneous,” is a series of spontaneously  fermented sour ales brewed with fruits or vegetables and then aged in oak barrels.

According to William Blennow, sales manager at the company, Mikkeller will be importing Spontanlemon, Spontanyuzu, and Spontancherryframboos.

  • Spontanlemon is a sour ale brewed with lemons.
  • Spontancherryframboos is brewed with cherries and raspberries.
  • Spontanyuzu is brewed with yuzu, a type of citrus fruit.

These Spontan beers are brewed and packaged at De Proef Brouwerij in Belgium, then will be imported to the U.S. by Shelton Brothers Inc. All three beers weigh in at 7.7 percent ABV.

In an email, Blennow told Tenemu that Spontanyuzu “should be on its way and will be released within weeks” while Spontanlemon and Spontancherryframboos “are still fermenting.”
