JIVA BIRA

Good luck finding this or even following me to get hold of it.

This is the Jiva Bira, an unpasteurized lager that's brewed by and only sold in the Restaurant Magernitza in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Terrific restaurant, by the way, with awesome traditionally cooked game and domesticated dishes.

Anyway, the beer is cloudy as all get out and sips initially like a weiss but isn't. That goes away about halfway across the tongue and you notice its beautiful mouthfeel. It's lightly bitter all-round and a great surprise.

Have one next time you pop into town.

 

8/10
