A light Norwegian style farmhouse ale traditionally brewed with juniper branches, HHB Kveik features spruce. Kveik (pronounced kwike) is the yeast passed down for generations by farmhouse brewers.
A hazed golden ale with a thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, light fruity esters, herbaceous character, light caramel malt with light grassy hops. In mouth, sweet caramel malt with light fruity esters, light grassy hops, light mineral notes, light doughy character, OK. Bottle from brewery.
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a slightly hazy dark golden-orange with an average size semi-lasting fluffy off-white head. Minimal to no lacing. Big aroma of caramel malt, honey, yeast and spruce followed by light spices and fruit. Flavour: Slightly watery but there's a good amount of flavour in the back end. It's malty with spruce, fruit, yeast and some spices in the finish. Average bodied. I didn't know what to expect but I liked it.
Picked up a bottle at the brewery. Pours a foamy bubbly beige head that sticks around and has a dark golden/coppery appearance. Some decent sticky lacing. Good retention. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of sweet and toasty malts. Flavours are sweet, toasty and earthy. Some notes of caramel and bready malts as well. Has a slick and drying mouthfeel. Goes down pretty well, fairly refreshing.
