Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

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.

Pours out very effervescent lending itself to a voluminous white head and a bright hazy yellow body filled in with tons of carbonation bubbles.

The smoke is heavy lending meaty and campfire aromas. Earthy, grassy, floral and wheaty notes coming through with a touch of spice and sweetness. It’s cool that you can pick out the different ingredients even with the smoke.

The smoke is there throughout from front to aftertaste. Grass, wheat, yeast, and spice.

Light bodied with plenty of carbonation that is not overdone which is what I was expecting based on the huge head.

Drinkin this with my corn dog. And a bum. Pours up a dark hued orange/gold with endless solid white head. Ok lacing. Smells of citrus, that's it. Tastes of smoked pork, lemon peel, sour lemon, light malts. Light bodied. Crispy smooth carbo. Not too shabby
