3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of smoke, wheat, citrus and mild sourness. The lactic sourness is more present in the flavor than in the aroma, it’s joined by smoke, citrus and wheat, the flavor is very sharp and refreshing. The body is bigger than what I expect from a Berliner Weisse, although it’s not too heavy, the texture is a bit oily and the carbonation is lively. This might not be the best of the style, but it’s definitely worth a try and I wouldn’t mind buying this again.

Bottle. Aromas are wheat, pears, and light smoked meat. Tastes slightly sour with a light balancing smokiness. Thick wheat base. Almost creamy mouthfeel. I really like this obscure style.

Pours a hazy cloudy golden sunshine color with a slight head. Unique aroma of biscuity wheat, smoke, tobacco and a slight citrus sour note. A mouthful is light and different. Smoked wheat and mild citrus capitalize the flavors.

Bright yellow and cloudy pour from 16oz bottle. White head. Smokey, straw, grassy and lemon aroma. Smokey taste dominates. Lemons, flowers and yeast taste too. Weird. Haven't had a beer like this before.

Nice gently smoked. Like ham. Still a bit sweet and lovely punch. This is strange. Not bad, but something ain’t right. I don’t get it. Maybe too fancy to me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange with a light haze and a white head. The aroma has peaches, peat smoke, lemons, caramel and a bit of meatiness. It has a medium / light body that is pretty smooth and a good amount of gentle carbonation. The flavor starts off with smooth wheat malt, caramel, citric acid, orange peel, lactic sourness and a bit of smoke underlying. The smoke comes out more in the finish and the sourness goes to the back. Interesting beer. Don’t think I’d want it all the time, but a nice change of pace.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Hazy golden, small head. Mild citric smoky nose. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity and lightly smoky, light lactic sourness, notes of pine needles and butter. Low bitterness. Much, much better and balanced than the Abraxas I had years ago.
