Notes/Commercial Description:
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. Unfiltered, unpasteurized, and naturally-conditioned.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy golden color ale with a nice generous white head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of light salty rustic malt notes with some spices, juniper and light smoked notes also noticeable. Taste is a unique mix of juniper, smoked notes with some salty rustic malt notes clearly identifiable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Very interesting beers for sure but I am not sure I would feel the need to drink this on a regular basis.

A: A 3 finger head belched from its orifice into a standard pint glass. The bright cloud white foam held strong for many moons white the brilliantly golden liquid brought forth bubbles from the depths. When the clouds finally parted the spiders web was revealed on the edge of the glass.

S: The smell of smoke from the burning fires from the night before, earth and nature revealed underneath. A faint whisper of sweet breads and berries. Clean and crisp as the nights sky.

T: The balance of smoke and earth once again washes over my senses. The smoke is fresher this time and with more phenols peering through. There is a firm, yet noble bitterness about this grog that I came to enjoy over a few swallows. Crisp and clean like the legendary beers of distant Germanic lands. The balance is speared down the center.

M: Dry as a drought and crisp as a winter night. Light in body like a fair haired maiden and a soft bitterness left on the scenes, not unlike the fair haired maiden.

O: Worth the journey for this tasty brew? Indeed. Not to the liking of all, but hit the spot on a mild almost-spring night.
