Beer review: HaandBryggeriet Kreklingøl

HaandBryggeriet KreklingølThis is a fruit ale that contains crow berries (Krekling) from Finnmark in Norway. The recipe is created by Erlann Eldorsen, who is a price winning home brewer.

Looks

There is a light red/pinkish hue to this beer when poured. Once in the glass it looks brown with some red tones to it. Pretty unusual color for a beer (19 EBC). The head is also a bit pinkish.

Aroma

Very fruity aroma from the berries. There is also some yeasty aromas coming through the sweetness from the fruit.

Flavor

Very refreshing flavor. Not as fruity as the aroma, and the beer is a bit sour. The level of carbonation is very pleasant. The beer does not have much bitterness to it (28 IBU). There is some yeast in the flavor as well which is not that good.

Finish

The finish is not very long and is dry and a bit sour.

Rating

Not amongst my favorites from HaandBryggeriet, but a very interesting beer nonetheless. Score: 3.2/5.
