3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body under a large foamy off-white head that left some nice lacing. The nose is slightly sour and funky with some nice campfire smoke, wheat, and some yeastiness. The flavor is rather smoke-forward, much more than was expected. Smoky from front to back with just a light almost citrusy twang from the yeast and the sour mash. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and a lingering smoky finish. Pretty nice beer, and a fairly hard to find style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quick dissipating white head atop a clear, lively gold body. Nose is peat and a sweet white wine. Flavour is surprisingly tart, some lime, tart apple juice and lingering smoke. Interesting blend of tart and jerky.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a light ambery orange with a small, white head. Aroma is light. The smoke is there, some wheat, light clove perhaps. It’s a bit hard to make out much. The taste is very light as well. There’s some sourness, some peach, light smoke perhaps, some wheat. But there’s not really much flavor though a strong mouthfeel. The sour is fairly strong in the mouth as a feeling, but not as a taste. Definitely needs to have a stronger presence in actual aroma and taste.

Bottle from Bierkompass, bought in 2013.
Hazy dark golden with a small head. Light notes of smoke, also wood, malt and "cake batter". Not that sour. The body was fairly light. An ok one.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
@Gyllenbock: en ganska liten doft. Smaken är också ganska liten men med en tydlig syrlighet. Någon rökmalt tycks jag inte känna.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden orange with some carbonation. It subtley smells of lemon peel, and the body is light. There is an underlying saltiness, and sourness. However the most prominent tastes are of wheat and tartness from lemon peel.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle brewed at Göller.
Aroma is moderately smokey with a nice medium light wheat character and faint acidity.
Pours a cloudy golden orange with a fairly large and thick, faintly off white head. Solid retention with moderately high lacing and faint legs.
Flavor is moderately tart with a nice lactic acidity. Moderate smoked malt character cuts through the acidity while the acidity keeps the smoke in check. No bitterness or hop flavor. Moderate wheat character. Moderate citrus character with a light fruitiness.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall this is a really enjoyable beer and the best version of this style that I have tried. This is the first version where the smoke seems well integrated with the acidity instead of two different notes acting separately.

500 ml. Pours a turbid amber with light head. Aromas of smoke and stoned fruit. Flavors of smoke, mangos, and oranges. Smoke first, fruit later. Odd.

Very happy these were imported; it’s not every day you get to try a new style. Hazy deep gold, white head. Nose is yogurt (I’ve always wondered at that beer description and finally found one where it fits for my palate), lemon, smoke. Flavour is more yogurt, smoke but not too much. Not as good as the Geisterzug but still enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 1 pint (9 fl oz) bottle. Slightly hazy golden yellow with minimal white head. Aroma has grain, mild sour apricot, and very subtle smoke. Taste of grain, sour funk, smoke, and some lemony apricot. Very lactic texture. Quite odd, I literally said "wtf?" after the first sip, didn’t like it on the second sip, but began to enjoy it around the halfway point. Definitely a once in a blue moon kind of beer.
