A tart and herbaceous hybrid Scandinavian grog. The newest in our lineup of Ancient Ales, Kvasir (say: Va-seer’) is brewed with lingonberries, cranberries, birch syrup and herbs.

Another interesting beer from Dogfish Head. It’s as advertised, a tart beer with sweet backbone. You would not be able to pick out cranberry tartness in a blind taste test, but it’s there. Also for an ALE that is 10% abv, it is very well hidden. Definitely not a must try, but if you’re looking for something different and not offensive you might want to try this.

Strange, as one would expect from something pulled out of a chemical sample of a clay pot from a few millennia back. Exotic berry aromas are big here, and honey and syrup add a viscous sweet and tangy element. Pours dark amber with decent head and lacing. Tangy finish. Tap at Right proper.

Smells slightly sweet and berry like with some spices. The taste is dominated by the berries, very tart but not in the way a wild ale is, as it warms it sweetens considerably. Overall it’s a good beer, cool concept but not something I would drink all the time

From a capped 750 ml bottle purchased at the North Coast Coop in Eureka, CA. Pours a reddish copper with a beige head. Good lacing. Nose is a melange of fruit aroma with berries, herbs and birch. Medium body. Flavor moves from berry into birch as it warms. Other flavors here adds complexity. Really interesting and unique brew. Quite good.

(bottle - 750 ml) range pour with a puffy white head. Herbal and slightly sweet berry aroma. Interesting to say the least. Flavor is the same way. Herbs and a lot of interesting tart berry flavors. Some light bitterness at the end. Eh.

It looks they didn’t make much of this stuff, so I’m glad I grabbed a bottle. It didn’t have much of a name on the label, either. Cool Nordic babe on label. Russet pour with a thin head. A very interesting brew - tart fruits/berries, grains, grapes, leather, plus a little bitter/sour edge that works well. It seems like it has some hops, and you can taste the molasses-like birch syrup. It is complex, with a warming, chili-like finish. The aroma grows floral as it warms. Dave says it is one of most interesting, unique brews he has tried. Excellent.

Taster at the Calibration Dinner @ Big Beers in Vail. Pour is clear orange with a small tan head and good lacing. Herbal, tangy, light vegetal, some orange peel, doughy, and bready aroma. Taste is tangy, herbs, some basil, light bread, orangey, and lime. Medium body wth soft carbonation. Kind of weird but I guess that’s expected from Dogfish Head.
