2.14/5 rDev -41%
Don't remember where I got this. Think Julio's unless I got this as an extra in a trade. Anyways....
A- Poured into my Duvel tulip a very, very nice strawberry rhubarb-esc hazy hue with a good three finger of super super light pink head that fades to leave thick lacing and a dense, dense blanket. Looks just perfect.
S - Aroma is an epic let down. Its earthy, grains, almost a wheat aroma, wet hay. Getting no fruit at all. A shame.
T - Taste is almost as bad as the nose. Bitter, funky, wet hay, a slight flash of nondescript fruit. Some medicinal taste, earthy, just not well done.
M - Mouthfeel is on par with what I would like here, nice carbonation, crisp.
O - Overall a huge let down. Looked so great but smelled and tasted so mediocre. Huge disappointment.

Wow, I'm a huge fan of HaandBryggeriet and I've had the Krekling before and thought it was something I liked but this bottle is a huge disappointment.
A: Ruby/brown in color, light head, slight lace.
S: Earth and not much else.
T: Just bitter and funky, no hint of fruit or tartness, medicinal and astringent aftertaste.
M: Nice carbonation and mouthfeel.
Did something else end up in this bottle? No bottling date on this one.

A minor mishap while unloading my bag from the store lead to slightly uncapping this beer. Uh oh, guess I'll have to drink it now...
A: Big, gushing pink head. Did I mention this just got dropped on the floor? Really pretty red color, with medium clarity.
S: Smells like crowberries, I guess? Herbal, earth, sour. Perhaps most similar to blueberry, among common fruits, but distinctly something else. Some definitely funk in there too... mushrooms, wet hay
T: Somewhat similar to blueberry and cranberry. Intensely earthy with a mild bitter finish. Bready malt character in the mid-palate.
M: Medium-full body. Carbonation is a bit low, but that may be due to the traumatic circumstances of this pour.
O: At $10, a bit of a let down, although certainly a unique beer. What's a crowberry?!?!
