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. Here’s 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.

Bottle picked up in Julios on the way back from a great weekend that included NotF and BBF in Boston. Pours a hazy dirty brown with a medium to large creamy beige head. Berries hidden behind oxidized old paper, moves into a slight liqueur aroma. Sweet at the start, then sort of an ugly charred berry flavor. Ugh. How did that happen? Just tastes like burnt currants. Lots of ash. Not a ton of sourness or acid, just a lot of unpleasantness. Finishes with some more paper, flat old berries, and a bit of tang with some flavors that remind me of Indian food. Well, it looked pretty at least. Shame it all had to go down the drain.

Nice brew. Dominated by wild, rather bitter forrest fruits, moderately bitter, but really natural way of brew. In general not that bad with nice natural accents.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupelniania profilu na ratebeer. Dominacja nut karmelowych i przejrzalych owoców, wyrazne nuty octowe, mimo umiarkowanej kwasowosci. Jakies takie nieco przegnile, ble.

zacgillbanks (5500) - 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 (6465) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 4, 2016
Flaske (batch 730) fra polets nettbutikk, hjemme: oransjegylden med ok skum. Syrlig og frisk bæraroma - rips, rognebær, tyttebær, hyllebær (har de brukt noen porsblader også, mon tro?). Smaken er enda bedre, dette er rett og slett en kjempegod surøl i det mest innsmigrende segmentet. Delikat balanse, og med en lett bitterhet i den halvtørre avslutningen som inviterer til å helle sorgløst innpå.
