4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sour Ale limitadíssima de 330 botelles. Molt bona i equilibarda. Fins i tot es nota un punt la malta torrada al costat de les notes avinagrades. Bona textura i bon color d’escuma que tot i desaparèixer ràpidament es manté una mica tot i l’estil de la cervesa. Si la trobeu a algun lloc, no dubteu en comprar-la!

Rodenbach-like with some soot well blended in. Bittersweet, vinous. Redcrurrants, cherries, crowberries. A splendid blend.

Sample from bottle at Haand Festival 2012
Black, espresso head. Smells of liquorice, aquavit, berries, and heavy roasted malts. Very malty, heavy sweet, fruity, you can really feel the Kreklingøl in here, also spirits and aquavit. Some dark tastes as well, like coffee. Oily feel, full body, nice light bitter finish with some earthy feel. This is a very nice beer, two beers i like alot blended together in harmony

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Dark brown near-black body with a small khaki-colored head. Nose is dark, pungent and intriguing: wood, bretty horseblanket tones, red wine, juniper berries, leather, cinnamon, vanilla, hints of licorice and herbs. Very "Jolly Pumpkin"-ish, but with a couple of extra layers of complexity. Taste is juniper, wood, ashes, red wine, tart berries, horsey stable tones, licorice, hints of leather and smoke far in the back. Full body, medium carbonation. Luscious and tantalizing, this is a complex sipper with a great deal of balance. Definitely one of the best one-offs from Haandbryggeriet so far in my opinion. A real treat.

Shared bottle at hotel room tasting, thanks to OleR. Dark colour, moderate beige head. Very interesting aroma, roasty, brettanomyces, fruity, mildly spicy. The flavour is moderately sour and roasty, not as complex as the aroma, but still very good. I’d like a little more hops, though.
