This is pretty darn tasty. A nice orange brown color with tasty head. The beer is fruity, kind of like a cherry but not as sweet. Also just a tad bit smoky. I like it.

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.

Everything about this beer and brewery always. Delicious in ever aspect, and gorgeous red carmel pour with a effervescent head. Has a nice carmel body that is slightly bitter and becomes slightly sweet and bubbly. Points for using local and traditional ingredients of course.

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.

2011 btl. Murky medium red amber colour, off white medium head. Smells..crisp berries, some light kriek like sour berry, some light spice/pepper hints, a little malt too. Tastes.. A great balance between spice and fruit. I’ve never had crowberries, but the berry taste is fresh/crisp adds to a palatte cleansing mouthfeel. Quite spicey in a peppery sense, some malt too. I’d absolutely buy another one.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Pours a deep ruby brown, with a large, foaming pink-tinged white head, which lasts very well. The nose shows berry notes, with a touch of grainy malt. An initial sweet, fruity taste is soon swamped by a combination of mild leafy hops and a sour, fruity flavour which I assume to be crowberry. This mixes delightfully with burnt caramel malt to create an unusual sweet-sour mix in the body. The sour crowberry flavour lingers well into a long finish, complemented by a touch of rye bread at the end. This certainly is another unusual beer from Haandbryggeriet, yet it works wonderfully, and is an extremely refreshing drink. I would make it a regular summer tipple, were it not so hard to get.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a beautiful burnt cherry into copper with a nicely proportioned head, some of which hangs around. The nose has prunes, stewed cherries and a bit of chocolate biscuit. The taste has oatmeal, vinous fruity characteristics - cherries again - then biscuits, nuts and chocolate. The palate has a medium body, a lovely creamy and mid-palate texture and a nice elegant finish. Overall, lovely.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl bottle from Eggedal Borgerstue. Enjoyed with some nice local elkroast. Pours murky red with a big creamy off-white head that stays there. Aroma is crowberries, some pine. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite easy to drink. Flavour of crowberries and oak. Dry and bitter, light caramel. A very good match for our dinner and we enjoyed both.
