3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
I find this an intriguing style. This one is quite golden and shiny. Quite salty, fresh fruity sourness, lactic, herbal. Acquired aroma, but that shouldn’t stop a beer nerd (geuze, anyone?). Taste is strongly different as well, lactic again and an acidity that’d different from the known beer sours. Lovely full body for the abv but I am not quite used to this taste yet. Until then I categorise this under experiment and nice to try, rather than tasty. (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, smoked, bacon. Tastes malts, little sour, smoked, ash. Weird stuff. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Cafe Sara
Golden clear, white head. Smell of smoke and sausage, tart fruits, some malts as well. Moderate sweet, a smoky touch, hints of sausage, a bit tart. Moderate bitter finish. Very interesting beer and style. It’s not like gose at all; it’s smoky and tart. Very refreshing and probably supert on a hot day. And the best thing of them all, the low abv makes this a good session

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strange beer. Bit sourish and stingy, with a slightly salty note. Body bit too thin. Feels uncompleted.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Has a slightly hazy straw color, and a small, off-white colored foam. The aroma is marked by smoke, pale malt, motor oil, barn and some citrus. Really special aroma on this. Lime tones is evident in the taste along with more sweet smoked meat, sweet malt and bread in the aftertaste. Mouth feel is tart, light and smooth, and has a low bitterness. Basically this is a beer that combines smoke, engine oil and citrus, and I do not know if this is my favorite combination in a beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
200ml on tap, ølbrett menu, at Cafe Sara. Crystal clear, pale golden body. Tiny white head. Modest aroma of smoked malty, half-dry. Flavours of bacon, oyster, grass and citrus towards the ending. Medium to thin bodied. Fair enough, not that exciting (Oslo 22.04.2014).
