Is it Gotlandsdricke or Gotlandsdrika or Gotlandsdricka?  I've seen all 3 spellings.
Primary: gotlandsdricke/alt/dunkel hybrid
Secondary: pale barleywine,
Bottled:  Gotlandsdricke
               Oatmeal/blackberry stout
               Honey Kolsch

Gotlandsdricku

Probably just depends on where you were raised & how your family spelled/said it.
I think Finns & Norwegians call it sahti.


Your safest spelling is probably "Gotlandsdricke".

Oh no!  Now I've got four ways to spell it?  Must have a homebrew to chill out.  I've actually been using the 'safest' one.
