Jester King Gotlandsdricka

RATINGS: 149   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.45/5   EST. CALORIES: 198   ABV: 6.6%
Gotlandsdricka, meaning “Drink of the Good Land”, is believed to have been the beer of the Vikings. Our rendition of this ancient style is inspired by the traditional farmhouse ales once brewed on the island of Gotland off the coast of Sweden. Gotlandsdricka (6.6% alcohol by volume) is brewed with birchwood smoked malt, juniper and sweet gale. It’s unfiltered, unpasteurized and naturally carbonated through re-fermentation in the bottle.

Gold pour with a fluffy white head. Nose is bbq, florals, sweet, salt, and earth. Very smooth on the palate, heavy smoke upfront, earthy malts, juniper, and an easy finish.

ineedbeer (2132) - Oakland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2016
Poured from a Batch 2, Dec. 2014 750 ml bottle. Aroma has a light, sweet floral and honey note to it with moderate smoke notes. Light grain notes with hints of acid and citrus. Medium light juniper berry notes and a touch of tropical fruit. Pours a hazy, pale yellow gold with a medium sized, moderately thick, white head that steadily recedes. Moderate lacing and faint legs. Flavor has a medium acidity with a nice lemon, citrus note and a touch of pineapple. Some light grain notes with a medium light sweetness with honey and floral notes. Light smoke character with hints of juniper. Light bitterness. Some lingering acidity and pineapple with a touch of smoke and juniper. Light sweetness lingers. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, this is a weird beer and most people probably wouldn?t like it bit for some reason I really enjoy it. The smoke works well with the sweetness and the phenolic notes from the juniper berries. The citrus and acidity from the yeast also really help brighten the beer. I don?t know why, but I love this beer.

Opened at the Eagle Bay Cacao Launch by Elliot. Bloody impressed with this one! Complex apircot jammy notes with bright citrus, mango, moderate smoke and light floral undertones. Veyr citrusy which helps it flow and has a mild sweetness which is a nice touch. Really nailed this one
