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.

Beer pours a pale straw yellow with a strong white head.

Aroma is of of campfire and pine. A pretty potent combination.

The beer is pretty strong tasting. The smoke hits you in the face in a big way. The finish is of pine and juniper berries come through strong. It makes for a sappy spicy finish.

The mouthfeel is medium.

This is a pretty strange beer. It is technically sound for a smoked beer but the flavors are not something that I enjoy at all. The smoked aroma and flavor do not play well with the juniper. It is too much like liquid campfire in a bottle to be enjoyable.

A: This beer pours a yellow straw body with a thick white head that quickly fades away. There is also a little bit of lacing on the glass.

S: HOLY MOTHER OF GOD, So much smoke! It almost smells like burnt ham to me.. Not really digging this at all.

T: Yeah this is terrible. It tastes like you took ham and bacon and threw it in a smoker for a year. God I cant stand the flavor of this...

M: There is a lot of carbonation and really full feeling.

O: Dear god the flavor of this beer is just terrible that it made me gag on the first sip. Just nasty.

The new version of this (2015) is a complete mess of a beer. Gross sweaty smell. Mild sour taste with some smokiness. Nothing like the old version, this version is all bungled up with nothing substantial to offer. Would decline this
