2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The beer had a nice, clear dark red color. White, medium head. Weak aroma of berries, fruits and some chemical notes. The taste was not too impressive but it was little better when the liquid got warmer. Berries, (maybe blueberries?), fruit, some chemical notes. A slight sourness, thin mouth feel. Medium carbonation and some notes of alcohol. Not the best one from Haandbryggeriet.

Pours red with a nice small white head. The aroma is malty with some sweet toffee backed up by strong berries. The flavor is the same. It’s a tad watery with a mildly tart finish. A little herbal as well. A nice refreshing fruit beer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nose: Some berries but with a pricking chemical nose which is not very nice.
Taste: Lemonade gone bad. Not much that tells me that this is a beer.
Too much alcohol and kinda crisp.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, City Beer Store. Drinkable and refreshing with an interesting berry flavor and a sour twang. This is a nice beer and sits lightly for the abv, but it’s not really a standout for the brewery. The mouthfeel was a bit chalky, and the the berry note is somewhat muddled. There’s more caramel maltiness than I cared for. That said, the sour flavor is pleasantly mild, and the cloudberries are unfamiliar and tasty. Also, the beer has a nice funk note and some woody dryness.

On tap at Håndverkerstuene. A hazy, orange to dark golden beer with a big, creamy, beige head. Some berries-like sourish notes in the aroma, with caramel and hints of lemon blending in. Berries, a sourish touch and some caramel in the mouth, full bodied and nicely carbonated. Berries in the finish. The crowberries stand out in a really nice way in this tasteful beer, making it a pleasant beer to drink. 100820
