Bottle, thanks Ryan. Ruby brown pour with tan head. Tart berry aromas. Dry earthy berry with some malty tones.

Sparf (106) - Östersund, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2014
Färg som hallonsoda med ett ljusrosa, stadigt skum. Doften påminner om en belgisk framboise men med en sötare framtoning. En parfymaktig syrlighet vävs samman med lätta toner av jäst och rabarber(?). Halvsöt, fruktig smak med inslag av ljung och hö. Munkänslan är torr och halvfyllig medan eftersmaken känns blaskig men med en kvardröjande beska. Mer roligt och intressant att prova en kråkbärsbärs än en storartad upplevelse.

Holmen2 (702) - NORWAY - JAN 16, 2014
Batch 552. Colour of Pink Panther-soda. Unclear. Slightly sour aroma of red berries with hints of malt. Taste of wild berries and rhubarb. Otherwise quite neutral. Some crowberries and bitterness in aftertaste.

Holmen1 (2315) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 16, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Flaske fra polets nettbutikk, ombord på Fridtjofen jan-14: høflig gardinskum, fargen minner om rabarbrasuppe. Frisk og ukomplisert smak med et sjenert kreklingpreg. Ønsker meg mer personlighet, men en god sommerdrikk og en utmerket måte å få i seg nok antioksidanter.

laiti (5572) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
50 cl bottle @ wPBF’14. Batch #552: brygget 06.12.2012, BBE 06.12.2014
Aroma has hay, berries and some juicy notes. Flavour has berry juice, some tartness, and hints of licorice root. A bit messy but interesting anyway.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle 500ml (WPBF)
Red color, pinky steady head, lace. Spicey berryish a bit tartish aroma. Medium-bodied. Berryish, kind of red currant juice flavor here. Some woody-malty notes. Crowberries are not very tasty.

olio (5969) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 3, 2014
50 cl bottle @ wPBF’14.
Pours hazy rose red color with a small head. Aroma of berries, wood, some herbal notes and grass. Flavor of grass, yeast, red berries, gooseberries and spices. Decent but a bit weird.

toxichop (329) - South Gate, California, USA - DEC 2, 2013
S: An odd berry smell I guess those are the crowberries, lots of hay, wheat and dirt. P: Amber/deep red with a light frothy pink head. T: Wet hay, metallic fruit juice, some lime and wheat. M: High sparkling carbonation with a light mouthfeel. O: Easy to drink even wtih the medicianl notes this beer carry’s. Easy beer to forget here.

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - NOV 20, 2013
500 ml bottle, batch #552, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.0%. Pink colour, large and lasting pinkish off-white head. Aroma of ripe crowberries (which seem to be the only actual berry ingredient), lingonberries and raspberries. Also notes of yeast and farmhouse. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is fruity and pleasant, not sour nor very sweet, with distinct notes of crowberries. Some hops in the finish. Enjoyable.
