COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1930'ties archaeologist found some 3800 year old clay tablets, which described how a fermented beverage was brewed by the Sumerians.
The poem in the clay tablets was called "The Hymn to Ninkasi". When we brewed the beer we baked some bappir, which is a dried bread made of barley, honey and dates. The bread was mashed with barley malt.
It does not contain hops and it is not boiled either. A mixture of wine yeast, wild yeast and acid producing bacteria are responsible for the fermentation. For more information see http://www.olfabrikken.dk/ninkasi

Cask at Ølbaren. Reddish amber, cloudy and almost no head. Sourish aroma with notes of apples and malt. Flat with a sour flavour of apples. A great experiment, but not a great beer.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2006 Hand bottled from cask at Ølbaren and tasted shortly after.
Unclear dark orange colored with absolutely no head. Extreme aroma, dominating sour and herby with obvious smokey tones. Flavor is just as odd and different as the aroma, acidid and smokey, but actually with some balance that makes it slip down more easily. Herbs and spices and a sweetish fruity tone in the background. I honestly can’t say I enjoyed this very much, but it’s a funny and different beer experience that I’m glad to have tried!

Mette (224) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2006
Smagt på Ølbaren 16.06-06. Yderst interessant og eksperimenterende tiltag. En ugennemsigtig væske, orange i farven med en sur duft . Lidt æblejuiceagtig. Lav kulsyre og intet skum. Smagen er syrlig og frugtig. Oplevelsen overskygger pruduktet.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2006 Cask at Ølbaren. Served in a Hommelbier glas. Aroma is very sour, almost like vinegar. But the taste is luckily better, dry, a bit sur, apples, a little sweet as well, some malts. No carbonation.

Ungstrup (29473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 17, 2006
[Cask at Ølbaren] An unclear dark orange beer with no head. The aroma is powerful with strong notes of vegetables and sulphur, but also light smoked notes and a light acidity. The flavor is also strong with notes of vegetables, and lighter notes of sulphur, and honey, as well as hints of burnt malt, on a slighlty acidic background. It grows on You while sipping it. A very interesting experiment.
