COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Norwegian ale with cranberries and currants added. The Haand brewers - four guys making beer in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale - specialize in recreating old Norwegian farm beers. Heres one made with a variety of different grains, and some typical fruits from the region, handpicked by the brewers. It is fermented by airborne wild yeast, unfiltered, and unpasteurized. Wild Thing, you make everything...groovy.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, - NOV 15, 2012
A moderate gusher upon opening. Veiled orangey dark pink hued ale covered by a slice of white that lasts. Lightly lactic, gently flowery, mineral, very phenolic nose barely hints at the fruits this contains. Rather earthy pits, branches and... bile meet in this rather messy ale. In mouth, carbonation takes a lot of room and the beer is very dry, the fruit sugars having apparently been eaten up through and through, letting a texture that feels on the very light side for a Haandbryggeriet. They still manage to pull out very noticeable smoke flavours out of this and it is fairly complementary to the minerally fruits, but there is little else going on and some of the phenolic compounds, giving plastic and medicinal flavours a plenty, are detrimental to the enjoyment. Funny how I really love that brewery and wild beers, yet combining the two leads to a disappointment.

zacgillbanks (4868) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2016
7% bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Cloudy amber coloured with no head. It has a cider apple and berry flavour with slight tartness and oak, earth and bitter-sweet currants on the finish. Too high an ABV for the flavour but not bad.

Holmen1 (5327) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2016
Flaske (batch 730) fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: oransjegylden med ok skum. Syrlig og frisk braroma - rips, rognebr, tyttebr, hyllebr (har de brukt noen porsblader ogs, mon tro?). Smaken er enda bedre, dette er rett og slett en kjempegod surl i det mest innsmigrende segmentet. Delikat balanse, og med en lett bitterhet i den halvtrre avslutningen som inviterer til helle sorglst innp.
