3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very interesting and intriguing aroma of yeast, smoked malt, spices and herbs. Pours a cloudy orangey golden color with a medium white head. In the flavor, the smoked malt reminds me of smoked herring, there’s a good dose also of herbs and spices and some yeast. There’s mild bitterness in the end. The body is medium with a creamy texture and medium carbonation. This is unique and unexpected, I like that!

0,5l bottle. Hazy,gold brown,caramel head. Nice aroma of hops, yeast and a hint of pineapple. Really interwoven taste, but mainly sour and heavily astringent. Too bitter for my taste. Overpowers the spices.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500 ml). Slight hazy bright dark golden with a medium fully lasting off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is a nice mix of herbal/floral presence and smokey notes along light berries, moderate spiciness and hints of caramel. Taste is moderately herbal/floral and spicy with smokey notes, hints of caramel/malt, berries notes and earthy presence. Medium body. Very active bubbles. Light lingering smokey finish. Quite tasty beeer. Nice balance between herbs and smoke. Carbonation level is a tad too high. Well done!

500ml bottle purchased at Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida. Orange in colour with an off-white head, good retention and good lacing. Aroma is musty, some berry skins, some smoke, perfume. Flavour is a bit dirty, some berries, smoke, chocolate, sweet caramel, some yeast. Sweet mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, sweet, malty.
Another strange beer from this brewery that I just can’t help but liking.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Distinct hoppy aroma with hints of cloves. The taste is odd - some alcohol, a bit of weird malts with hints of figs and a leathery numbness. The aftertaste is weak and numb, I dislike it somewhat. Not surprising that the taste can not follow up the excellent aroma.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purchased at Sola Airport duty-free in a 50cl bottle. Batch number 774. Hazy red-gold colour with a firm white head that clings to the glass, and a fruity, hoppy aroma. Taste is full of rich malts with a very subtle hint of smoke. Also fruity notes of Seville Orange marmalade and hops. The hop taste is well-defined and creates a great balance with the sweeter flavours of malts and fruit. Beautiful long, bitter finish. A really lovely well-balanced harvest beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Has a very interesting quality of smokiness along with a really nice depth of malts, a bit of a brown rice nutty character, some wild berry, a very strange but delicious beer as I’ve come to expect from Haand.
