Kingmaker (5) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 25, 2015 does not count
Blume hält sich nicht lange und hat sehr große Blasen, was aber beim Sauerbier zu erwarten war. Farbe ist ein tolles Rotbraun und etwas trüb. Sieht toll aus im Glas. Frisch-fruchtiger Geruch nach Kirsche und ganz leichte Malznote. Viel, scharfe Kohlensäure im Mundgefühl, ganz leicht ölig. Frisch, bitterer Geschmack, wobei die Säure gut ausgewogen ist. Ein vollen Beerenaroma, auch im Nachgeschmack. Hier hält sich der Bitter eine gute Weile. Ein tolles Sauerbier mit nicht zu starkem Beerengeschmack, was sicherlich auch vielen Biergenießern schmecken wird, die noch keine Erfahrung mit Sauerbieren haben. Ein paar Extrapunkte für die Verwendung der Krähenbeere einer norwegischen Waldbeere.

KnutAlbert (6386) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2013
Bottle from the brewery. Lovely ruby. Discreet berry aroma, fruity and dry, just a little edge of sourness. Funk, raspberries, the dry crowberry mouth feel is very evident. Lovely.

Foffern (1435) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2013
Bottle at home. Has a hazy reddish amber colour with a light pink medium whipped eggwhite-like head. Aroma of fruits, Belgian yeast, hay, spices and cherries. The flavour is similar but balanced and complex, and is sweeter. There’s also some forest floor, heather, smoke and barnyard. Has a slick and smooth mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A nice mix between Norwegian berries and a Belgian beer.

krumbum (725) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Cloudy read color with little head. The crowberrys own the scent of this beer. It makes my sense question weather crowberries are poisonous or not. It taste syrupy and thick like cough syrup with a dry finish. Thick bitter berry and dry. Different.

gyllenbock (5898) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2013
Bottle at Christiansand Brygghus in June 2013. Hazy reddish with a medium head. Red berries and crowberries both in the aroma and taste. Also some wood, leather and malt. Lively carbonation. Refreshing and nicely drinkable.

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2014
Bouteille sample 50cl @ Il Pretesto, Bologna. BB 02/12-2015. Batch# 691. Cuivrée tirant sur le rougeâtre, col blanc cassé. Arôme est fruité de baies et de plante rappelant un peu le framboise. Palais est fruité assez léger sur un malt plutôt pâle, le tout offrant une belle rondeur de bouche gardant une petit note sucrée et de fruit rouge. Pointe surette perce en retrait.
