This is a collaborate brew with Erlann Eldorsen based on his recipe. Kreklingøl is made with crowbrerries, a very special berry that is picked in Finnmark, the part of Norway north of the Polar circle. The beer is very refreshing with a reddish hue from the berries.

Editor’s note: hey, crowberries are common in most of Norway and can even be found at Rejkjær Sande in Denmark.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Bouteille de 500ml. brassée 14.02.11 et embouteillée le 16.03.11. Gusher de couleur rouge-brunâtre très trouble. Le nez est de médicament, band-aid avec à l’usure des fruits rouges. La bouche goûte le fumé et les remèdes. Franchement mauvais.

Bottle. Dark ruby brown pour with beige head. Different like tart berry aroma, some malt tones. Berry tones are very light on flavor, beer is quite subtle but nice.

Une bouteille de 50 cl qui contient une bière brassée le 14.02.11 et embouteillée le 16.03.11. Un liquide à la robe plutôt rougeâtre et fortement embrouillée. Une tête mousseuse rose pâle qui s’affaisse rapidement. Au nez, un souffle de rusticité derrière des bleuets, des petits fruits rouges et des citrons. Sur les papilles, des brettanomyces, des fruits et des notes aigres-douces. En bouche, un corps de moyenne dimension avec des bulles présentes et une texture huileuse. En finale, des notes de cuir qui s’étendent sur des bleuets. Appréciable et assez unique.

first time having this, first time having a Haandbryggeriet. From the bottle into my founders snifter. had to try this and see what it was all about, the nose of sour berries and some cherry escape the glass. the murky red liquid almost erupted out of the bottle into the glass. with a taste that i feel matches the description of a very thirst quenching liquid is spot on, i almost wish it was blistering hot outside to see how good it really is. this wasnt as sour as i was led to believe but it wasnt an issue since this was a tasty brew anyway, a bit saisony in some of the aftertaste. a lively mouthfeel that wasnt as explosive as expected from its rush to leave the bottle. overall this is a good beer and one that i will probably pick up again.

On tap at Parkteateret. Dark brown with a reddish hue and a light brown head. Aroma of crowberries, malt and fruit. Nice berry flavour with some acidity and a dry finish with some bitterness. Nice beer on a sunny day outside.

500ml bottle. Slighty cloudy red red amber with average frothy moderately lacing off-white head. Tart and fruity aroma, a touch of leather. Taste has tart, dry and fruity notes, prickling carbonation supports acidic fruit notes.

The colour of the beer is brown, off-white head. Aroma is sort of sour, berries and fruits. I’ve never tried crowberries, but I guess that’s what’s present in the taste, a moderately sour berry taste. I thought this was a good beer. (Bottle)
