NordicV (1293) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - DEC 22, 2014
Lätt grumlig aprikosfärgad öl med vitt medelstort skum. Doft av jäst och lättare charkuteri-rökighet, även vissa syrliga citrustoner. Även i smaken så är rökigheten mer påtaglig än syrligheten. Smakar som en rökt weissbier med en skiva citron i.

500 ml bottle (?)
A novel style caught my eye during a beer run. A low risk beer with a potential reward turned out to be an unusual mixture of smokiness and sourness. Given that it doesn’t cost much and offers a chance to try a style which is not widespread I would still recommend picking up a bottle if you run across it next time you visit the local store.

Aroma / Appearance - A rich billowing head rushes towards the top of the glass. Settling after a minute or two, the coppery bronze base eventually fills the glass with a warm glow. Light ham on wheat dominates with only a tease of cider and vinegar. Dry in tone, it offers a smooth sweet profile.

Flavor / Palate - Mild smokiness tastes like a dash of sliced smoked ham. Caramel, wheat, and delayed wheat emerge after two more sips. The spicy finish reveals a trace of tartness. Ultimately though this has more smoky aspects than sour. My final impression had me seeking another bottle to move on but it provided a nice distraction. Your mileage may vary.
