Bottle, bought @ Nordisk Ølhandel, Cph. Pours murky red with a fine, small, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has red currants, mild piney, some astringency, bog myrtle. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite light mouthfeel. Flavour has no fruity notes, more like branches and oak. Dry and bitter, light caramel, bog myrtle, earthy. Some more fruitiness would have been nice. Otherwise a fine example of the style. I

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle and served in my Unibroue tulip: Pours a muddy reddish brown with an initial huge infected head. The aroma has notes of rye bread, caramel, biscuity malts, twangy fruit, and some dirty yeast esters. The smell is actually pretty inviting but alas the taste left more to be desired. Interesting fruity component that is neither acidic, tart nor sweet... sort of just there if you know what I mean. Additionally I believe some infection got into this beer and ate some of the remaining sweetness and body. There is a light medicinal note that is out of place. The mouth feel is actually not all the sprite considering the carbonation of the initial pour. The finish is rye dry and chalky. I would have liked to try this brew when it was fresher for I think what I have in this bottle is not what was intended.

Bottle. Poured a murky reddish brown colour with a fading off white head. Nose of earthy fruit and malts. Flavour was similar with a little sourness and notes of yeast and spices. The fruit lingered on into the finish. Quite unique really. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Det er en ale brygget med noen håndfuller krekling, det lille svarte bæret som vokser på norske vidder. Kreklingen gav en dyp rød farge til brygget, og en friskhet som balanserte godt alkoholen (7%) og en litt forsiktig bitterhet. Skikkelig forfriskende og tørsteslukkende.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted on tap @Grove Inn, on 03/11/2012.
Pours of muddy brownish/velvety color, with a gorgeous caramely white head.
Aroma is so beautifull, very intense, having loads of lovely berry tartness mixed with biscuits - that distinct crownberry character.
Taste just beats you up with its complexity, mildly sour upfront, then going into the berries' world, following by a sweet, malty theme.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a clear reddish color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light sweet berries with light tart notes is quite interesting. Taste is also a good balanced mix between some tart notes mix in with lightly sweet berries notes. Acidity level is quite low and taste is only lightly tart and not sour. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not necessarily something I would drink on a regular basis but very interesting nonetheless.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
50cL bottle Aus imported. Gassy with off white head that dissipates quickly. Beautiful rose water colour in glass. Lovely aroma of cherry and cranberry with stalky/earthy notes in the background. Palate is light and fresh with red berry/stalky flavours and a light malty finish. Still has plenty of that Haand Bryggeriet house style. Nice beer that is beautifully refreshing on a spring day.
