4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle) hazy orange, creamy white head. Wow! What stunning aroma! Smoke, campfire, wood, ham and juniper. Smoke and junper in flavour with a woody undertone. Creamy mouthfeel. Reminds me of Gotlandsdricke. Really Good!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Muddy orange, rich firm head. Heavily smokey aroma with notes of oranges. Sweet and fruity, which along with intensove junipy smokiness makes it resemble Gotlandsdricke. Finishes with lemony esters. Perhaps too fruity, but the flavours are stunning!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[bottle, 50 cl, bottled 31.01.06]. Amber, very cloudy body. Fine smooth white head. Bizarre aroma mixing smoked cheese, herbs, spices, resin (it’s them juniper berries!). A bit of a shock at first, then it gets addictive. The "smoked" is more prominent than the "chestnut" part. Mellow maltiness in the background, but the mouthfeel is dry and with a bitter tarty finish. Original, complex, interesting. Not too easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Compact and adherent foam, discreet persistence. Orange dark color, dense and torbid. Medium fizz. Elegant and agreeable scent. Notes of flour and smoked wood. Much aromatic and fresh one. Toasted chestnuts and parched wood taste. Modest and balanced bitter. The best one produced by Beltaine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2006 Bottle shared with a bunch of folks - courtesy of R. Hazy sunshine gold with a small white head. Very interesting aroma - kinda smoky, kinda nutty, kinda funky - odd, but I liked it. Mouthfeel is soft and pleasant. Flavour is a bit fruity and nutty, with some definate smokiness, and a herbal tang in the finish. A really unique beer that I quite enjoyed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 7%. Salami smoke aroma. Muddy brown orange colour. Small white head. The flavour is quite smoky. Again a bit like salami, quite good, but also a bit one-dimensional.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
From a bottle at home in Skövde. A bit hazy orange beer with an offwhite head. A bit smokey aroma, fruity with some rubber notes. Fruity flavour with some burnt notes. Much better taste than aroma.
