A bizarre concept for a beer. I was skeptical... it could have easily been a trainwreck, but it was actually great. There is a fairly subtle smoke flavor and aroma from the peated malt and the scotch barrels. In the forefront is there is mainly sour and funk flavors. All 3 beers have strong flavors, and they combine very well without drowning each other out. Hard to believe this isnít Belgian. A very impressive and innovative beer.

Neat squat bottle from Caponeís. Pours turbid straw colored, looking like pulpy orange juice,with white head. Nose is huge peat, yeast, funk, oak. Smells like a scotch and funky ale hybrid. Tastes tart, fruity, with heavy notes of peat, tangerine, grapefruit, smoked malt. It all comes together nicely.

Kauge (546) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 31, 2015
Tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend 2015. Now thatís a crazy brew. On the nose itís fatty smoked bacon and dry cider... mixed. Very sour, with a lingering bacon smokiness, cidery fruitiness, extreme tartness, almost burning in the finish (which is thankfully abrupt), leaving a nice smoky bitter feeling in the throat. Body plus medium, texture sticky, carbonation plus average. Being so different from all other beers at the festival I found it to be an absolute stunner, an incredibly complex and strange thing... I loved it.

Marduk (3476) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 30, 2015
Tap @TCBW2015. Cloudy orange color. No head, some expected. Nice peat, rubber, bit of leather in aroma. Itís like stale, sour whiskey full of peat smokiness. Sourness is bit too strong and vinegary, but peat really rescues that one for me. I donít mind drinking it.

On tap at Tallinn Craft Beer Weekend. Hazy golden with a white head. Sour peaty aroma with notes of sour berries and farmyard. Strange and simply lovely mixture of the sour funky stuff and the smoky, peaty stuff. Never tried a beer like this before, but I certainly hope I will later. Moderate sweet with a quite noticable acidity and lasting a aftertaste. Oooh, delicious!

tiong (4326) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Draught @ TCBW 2015

Pours yellowish orange with a small head. Really interesting aroma with loads of bretta, peat, wood, farmyard, earthy notes, wood and yeast. Taste is stingy, sourish and a bit messy with loads of bretta, peat, wood, farmyard and yeast. Finish is smooth, sweetish and slightly sour with loads of peat and hints of bretta. Interesting stuff. Quite unique.

Aroma has nice peaty tones, some citrus and grapefruit. Flavour is really, really tart. Citrus juice and some mellow peaty tones. The acidicness hurts the drinkability so bad. And the aroma and flavour are really far from each other. Not really sure what to say about this; drinking in quantities is impossible but I seem to enjoy every sip anyway.

Tap@tcbw15. Yellow hazy. Whoa, this is interesting. Really srrong peat, barnyard horsey pale malty nose. Citrus. Tart quite acidoc actually. Dry. Horsey burps, peaty flavour. This is interesting pretty exactly what the label promises.
