COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
HaandBic is our first beer in the style of a fruit iambic with added red currents and Lingonberry. We have naturally also added a lambic style yeast blend incl bacteria and yeast of different types. Then this concoction has been aged in oak barrels for almost 18 months. The beer gets its tartness from both berries and the concoction we added. It will most certainly develop further given time

Estebanik (1313) - Lublin, POLAND - JAN 1, 2016
Warka nr 521 Piany praktycznie brak, poza pojedynczymi grubymi bablami. Metne jak woda w kaluzy. Aromat dominuje zapach stajenny, funky. Intensywny, przyjemny. W smaku wytrawne. Kwas ?redni w stron? wysokiego. Beczka wychodzi g?ównie w postaci taninicznsoci, ale czuc drewno tez lekko w smaku. Derka w smaku wciaz motywem przewodnim. Jest nieco gryzace. Owocow nie czuc wcaaale. Mimo to nie?le.

mgajdaczewa (2311) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 25, 2015
W aromacie owocowa swieżość, dojrzałe jabłka, czerwone porzeczki, wiśnia, pestka, bardzo rześko! W smaku jeszcze lepiej, tu dominuje czerwona porzeczka, potężnie kwasne z długim pestkowym posmakiem, pojawiają się także akcenty beczki, lekka wanilina. Niezwykle pijalne i intensywne!
