Pours hazy gold with a white head. Smells like a bamberg smoked beer. Tastes slightly tarte and minerally with a smoky finish. I am happy to see gose separated out, but why lump it in with lichtenhainer and grodziskie?

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.

On tap. Excellent, interesting beer. Pour cloudy dark gold. Smoke and sour apples in the nose. Taste had a lemon zest, moderate tartness, with just an inkling of smoke. THe surprising part was that it was blend so well. Really refreshing and drinkable. Very surprised.

Bottle (SB, if my memory serves me right). Yellow hazy. Smoky nose. Wheaty malts, smoked ham, beef jerky, seaweed, peat. Sort of soft though, the smokyness is. Very pleasant. Med bodied, med dry finish. Good flavours, bunch of them. Malt-wise a bit weak- wheaty, blandish, but the peat/smoke is soft, nicely filling in. A soft nice drinkable smoked.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow to orange color with minimal white head. Aroma is bacon, smoke, and a faint sour/tart character. Taste is mild compared to the aroma in terms of smoke, there is a pronounced lemon tartness in the flavor with a hint of perfume and coriander type of character. Ok, and interesting, but nothing crazy.
