COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This is pretty darn tasty. A nice orange brown color with tasty head. The beer is fruity, kind of like a cherry but not as sweet. Also just a tad bit smoky. I like it.

50cL bottle Aus imported. Gassy with off white head that dissipates quickly. Beautiful rose water colour in glass. Lovely aroma of cherry and cranberry with stalky/earthy notes in the background. Palate is light and fresh with red berry/stalky flavours and a light malty finish. Still has plenty of that Haand Bryggeriet house style. Nice beer that is beautifully refreshing on a spring day.

Everything about this beer and brewery always. Delicious in ever aspect, and gorgeous red carmel pour with a effervescent head. Has a nice carmel body that is slightly bitter and becomes slightly sweet and bubbly. Points for using local and traditional ingredients of course.

Tasted on tap @Grove Inn, on 03/11/2012. Pours of muddy brownish/velvety color, with a gorgeous caramely white head. Aroma is so beautifull, very intense, having loads of lovely berry tartness mixed with biscuits - that distinct crownberry character. Taste just beats you up with its complexity, mildly sour upfront, then going into the berries' world, following by a sweet, malty theme. Recommended+ ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2011 btl. Murky medium red amber colour, off white medium head. Smells..crisp berries, some light kriek like sour berry, some light spice/pepper hints, a little malt too. Tastes.. A great balance between spice and fruit. I’ve never had crowberries, but the berry taste is fresh/crisp adds to a palatte cleansing mouthfeel. Quite spicey in a peppery sense, some malt too. I’d absolutely buy another one.
