Bottled. Reddish amber colour, small slightly head. Aroma is berries, some mild herbal and sweet malty notes along with some slight sweetness as well. Flavour is similar, but also has some quite tart strange sourness, probably from the berries. Flavour gets a bit strange.

Hazy red beer with a small pink head! Softish palate, semi dry. Light fruity vibe but also very floral, almost perfumey, akin to but not the same as Rosehip. Light softish finish. Very interesting!

yngwie (13350) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2013
Bottle, at Christianssand Brygghus. It pours an unclear, reddish dark orang body with a small, diminishing, off-white head. Fruity, lightly malty aroma with the berries sure present. The flavor is quite pleasant, but I sort of miss the sour touch from the first edition. This one’s not really sweet, but it sort of lack charachter. The crowerries shines through in the flavor, with a maltyness underneath. Medium body, quite dry, and pleasantly carbonated. Lasting fruity, berry-ish finish. Well, certainly not a bad beer, but I prefer the more complex first try. 130235

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.
