COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vikking, een bier met ballen. Heel lang geleden ving een Hammenaar een Vlaamse gaai en leerde hem klappen (praten). Jaren later kwam deze wuiten in handen van een schipper die hem voor minder dan een schijntje gekocht had doch de vogel weigerde te praten tot de dag dat het schip vanuit de Schelde de Durme opvoer en onze gevleugelde vriend begon te roepen "kwek,kwek,’k ein Ham gezien!!!!!!". Deze vogel leidde de schipper naar de kant alwaar een kist met aloude Vikkingdocumenten waaronder het recept van een bier met ballen.

Bottle 330ml @Gastropub Tuulensuu
Hazy orange color, good creamy beige head. Woody, spicey-yeasty aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Some leafy hops, not bitter anyhow. White peppery spiceyness. Quite yeasty flavor. A bit of alcohol. Thinnish and ordinary ale.

FatPhil (9421) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 18, 2013
330ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
A touch vegetaly taste. Onion soup. Soft malty aroma. Dull, light grains. Some soapiness. Covers .5% well, but that’s the most positive thing I can say about it. A beer with balls? Nah, a beer that’s bollocks.
