COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HaandBic is our first beer in the style of a fruit iambic with added red currents and Lingonberry. We have naturally also added a lambic style yeast blend incl bacteria and yeast of different types. Then this concoction has been aged in oak barrels for almost 18 months. The beer gets its tartness from both berries and the concoction we added. It will most certainly develop further given time

Holmen2 (1436) - NORWAY - OCT 7, 2013
Sour aroma and taste, as expected. A good sour beer, but perhaps too neutral and lacking personality.

Kurgen (1) - - SEP 13, 2013 does not count
Great Beer, super juicy fruit character with plenty of acidity. Lambic styles are totally a man’s drink and this beer is proof. Cant get enough.
