COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Gotlandsdricka, meaning “Drink of the Good Land”, is believed to have been the beer of the Vikings. Our rendition of this ancient style is inspired by the traditional farmhouse ales once brewed on the island of Gotland off the coast of Sweden. Gotlandsdricka (6.6% alcohol by volume) is brewed with birchwood smoked malt, juniper and sweet gale. It’s unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

brokensail (13676) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Hazy straw colored pour with a white head. Definite smokiness to the nose. Some sweet cracker malt, decent amount of lemon zest and orange, light tartness, and a bit of bread. Interesting flavor. Quite a bit of smoke, but well balanced by the sourness. Plenty of lemon, some sweet bread, cracker, and yeast. Pretty dry on the finish.
