Lactiwel

Sounds a little strange, but: a French farmer has created a milk beer.

The new drink, Lactiwel, made from milk and malt, contains 2% alcohol and is brewed using a fermentation process similar to that of traditional beer, except that instead of ale or lager yeast, Bernard uses kefir (Turkish milk product) yeast and lactic bacteria.

Sounds like it might be similar to kumis, a fermented mare’s milk found in Central Asia.

First found reference to this here, an online French newspaper. I can read some of it (it’s in French), but I don’t really see anything that describes how the Lactiwel actually tastes or anything.
