Bottle @ RBBSG II. Courtesy of Benzai. Thanks Rene! Appears cloudy honey color with off-white head. The smell is mild peaty smoke. The taste is the peaty smoke, touch go carmel with a dry finish. Light+ body with active carbonation. This one is just OK in my book.

Very high carbonation, really overshadowing the original taste. Aromas of wood smoke, a little soury. Tastes of leather, some sweetness, lots of carbonation. Wouldn’t bother to pick this up again.

Bottled. Pours hazy orange in color with an off-white head. Fruity notes, some smoky ham as well. Smoky ham in taste, burnt rubber too and the before mentioned fruityness. Otherwise good but the fruity sweetness is a bit disturbing here.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gusher! Hazy redbrown colour with lasting soapy head. Smokey and salty aroma, reminds me of schwarzwalder schinken. Flavour has initial sweet malty taste before the salty, smokiness takes over.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 330 ml, into a sort of tulip glass. ABV 6.3%
Slow Gusher - thanks to Theydon_Bois I had my glass ready to pour it.
Dark orange colour on the body, very hazy. Almost three fingers of off-white heaf, thick and soapy, with very good retention. After it has slowly collapsed light lacing remained on the glass.
Aroma is heavily smoked and peated at first, but after the foam has collapsed it smells less smokey and much better actually. Some caramel hidden underneath.
Nice smoked flavour, mildly sweet, with hints of burnt caramel,toffee. Aftertaste is also sweet and more enhaned on the toffee. Very tasty!
Medium thin body, a bit high on the carbonation, without becoming annoying.
Overall a really good one, not too heavy on smoke with other flavours being dominant.
