Norwegian ale with cranberries and currants added. The Haand brewers - four guys making beer in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale - specialize in recreating old Norwegian farm beers. Here’s one made with a variety of different grains, and some typical fruits from the region, handpicked by the brewers. It is fermented by airborne wild yeast, unfiltered, and unpasteurized. Wild Thing, you make everything...groovy.

zacgillbanks (4533) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
7% bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Cloudy amber coloured with no head. It has a cider apple and berry flavour with slight tartness and oak, earth and bitter-sweet currants on the finish. Too high an ABV for the flavour but not bad.

Holmen1 (4892) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2016
Flaske (batch 730) fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: oransjegylden med ok skum. Syrlig og frisk bæraroma - rips, rognebær, tyttebær, hyllebær (har de brukt noen porsblader også, mon tro?). Smaken er enda bedre, dette er rett og slett en kjempegod surøl i det mest innsmigrende segmentet. Delikat balanse, og med en lett bitterhet i den halvtørre avslutningen som inviterer til å helle sorgløst innpå.
