From a 33 cl bottle at home in Skövde. Brown beer with a really big offwhite head. Malty and a bit smokey aroma. Hoppy and some smokey flavour.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
340ml bottle, 6 % abv, picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo and shared with Finn back home. A gusher. Unclear dark brown body with a rustic shade. Fast diminishing tan-coloured head. Tart and sweet aroma of dried fruits and yeast. Unsuccessful blend of yeast, caramel malts and sour fruits. Foamy and empty in the mouth. Drain pour (mass online tasting, Tromsø 03.12.2013).

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2013 0.34l bottle. After the pop it slowly rises and definitely wants out of the bottle. Easy to see that this has way to much carbonation when pouring it in the glass, cause it immediately forms a gigantic kinda dirty beige looking top that quickly fizzes away. When it has settled it’s clear that this is a cloudy really deep dark wood brown colored beer. The nose is a mix between sour wood and sweet caramel. A bit strange to say the least. I have my suspicions that there might be a little infection going on here. Yeah, ehm. This is not drinkable. Soapy water added lemon and wood chips - leaving it for a year in a clear bottle and you might get something like this. Well, perhaps I’m a bit rough now, but this is a horrible tasting thing. Should I perhaps for the first time ever go back to the place I bought this and demand my money back? Tempting, but if I know myself I won’t. Anyhow, this is rubbish. Stay clear! 14.09.2013

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Gusher. Beige, cracking head, reduces fairly fast, but leaves a stable thick film of foam. Murky, dark rusty brown colour. Salty-malty aroma with boiled vegetables, soy sauce, anchovies, broth, mild vinegar. Medium/light body, fizzy carbonation. Taste is malty and mildly salty with a hint of sour-sweet fruit. Finishes mildly bitter with some umami. Weird, but ends up quite well-balanced.

Bharfh, Not many sips from this one. Sourish, funky. In one way i like it but it haves an unpleasant old sour taste to it. Not my cup of tea

1.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sour aroma with hints of cherries. Similar taste. Not what you would.expect from a bock beer, or ’dark wheat beer’.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Vika ( sept 2013), abv 6%. Dark unclear, with sediments and lots of foam: gusherstyle. Aromas of malt, light honey, fruitiness, dried fruits: medium aroma intensity. Medium body & complexity.
Some sweetness, but well balanced. Enjoyable

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
34cl bottle (6%) from Vinmonopolet Vika. Pours hazy dark brown with a large off-white head. Fruity aroma with strong notes of blackcurrant, reminds me a bit of blackcurrant syrup. Also dark fruits, yeast, malt, licorice, raisins, sour candy and hints of alcohol. Quite strange, but not unpleasant. Moderate sweet with some sour notes and somewhat dry and lightly bitter finish. Medium body with too liveley carbonation. Can’t reconize much of the wheat aromas and it’s certainly a bit strange, but quite drinkable.

1.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Colafarget, semi-gusher, mest skum i glasset. Høy karbonering. Banan, tyggis, soyasaus, kjeller aromaer, kokte grønnsaker. Ingen slager for min del. Det eneste som er verre enn smaken er aromaen
