COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Good Force is the sister brew to Dark Force, but Good Force is a friendly brew. This is a powerful imperial wheat beer flavoured with chamomile flowers.

500 ml bottle @den gode nabo. Slightly dim golden body with a nice but fast diminishing white head. Aroma is fantastic, fruity and floral, sweet toffee and alcohol. Flavor is almost extreme sweet, light malty with molasses, fruity, spicy, flowers, decent bitter and quite alcoholic. Palate feels fat and almost sticky. Aftertaste is mainly sweet with warming alcohol. The first few sip feels like a really pleasant beer for sipping. Unfortunately I was alone with my bottle and actually had to struggle to finish it all. After finishing the bottle I was not able to drink any more beer and feels almost like after eating one kilo of marzipan or something. I had to reduce my originally score some points, normally I’m quite capable to drink this amount of sweet beers, but this one where far above my capasity. Sorry.

500ml bottle, by courtesy of OleR. First pour is almost clear, grey-golden. Last pour is just muddy. Good amount of white foamy head with enduring qualities. Pleasant smell of coriander, wheat, notes of hay and dried fruits like figs. The taste brings sweet, spiced wheat with a touch of floral hops and faint yeast. Sweet fruity endnotes and overall rather sweet. Almost full bodied but not that heavy to drink. Has got its moments of drinking joy (hotel room, Oslo 07.02.2011).

Half pint at Cardinal’s "Onsdag i Annen". Pours hazy golden with moderate head. Real sweet. Tastes of tropical fruits, marzipan, sugars and wheat. Quite heavy but a good dessert ale, if served in small aperitif glasses. My half pint was too much.

Bottle. Cammomille tea? No- a deceivingly smooth beer, perfumed with flowers. Quite heavy, almost oily. Pleasant drinking, but the flowers would be more appropriate toa 5% beer. As a summer aperitif, maybe?

Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 17, 2011
0.5l bottle from Valken, Bergen. Pours a hazy darkish golden body, with a solid wheat-head. I get some yeast, sweet banana and bacon! Strange.. Medium to full-bodied with low carbonation. Nice warming alcohol not well hidden but really nice, some chocolate hints and orange peel. Must admit that I’m not sure how chamomile tastes, but I’m sure the strange flowery taste is just that. Refreshing and a bit different wheat ale because of the quite clear sweet alcohol notes. Want more of this!

gunnar (4863) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JAN 8, 2011
Bottled gift from OleR, thanks mate! Pours light hazy golden with a big stabile creamy white head. Sour wheaty aroma, belgian yeast,banana and barn besides some sweet malts, heavy that is. Taste is initially medium sweet dark fruity malty, raisins and plums, before a nice bitter, slightly pepperish/ginger feel take over and saves this brew from beeing just sweet. Nice lingering herbal end. Moderate sticky mouthfeel. Another good brew from Drammen.

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 21, 2010
500 ml bottle. Brewed 22.7.2010, bottled 14.9.2010.
Pours a hazy orange colour with a small, white head. Aroma of strong wheat, citrus and tropical fruits. Flavour of wheat, sweet fruits, plum, alcohol, loads of it. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a dry mouthfeel. Burning alcohol finish. Quite pleasant and has some Sahti-like notes, but somewhat unbalanced. Not nearly as good as Dark Force.

500ml bottle @ Gloria, Kuopio

A strong wheat beer that reminds me of sahti.

My first wheat ale! :-) Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. A medium, bubbly white head covers a honey-hued hazy straw yellow body. Aroma is wheat and yeasty floral tones with chamomile tones and hints of molasses; sort of like a Belgian tripel gone a bit wild. Interesting. Taste is massive; heavy molasses, herbal tones and floral yeastiness, flanked by a chamomile that definitely makes itself known. Mouthfeel is near-oily and full-bodied. A rough floral bitterness along with an alcohol punch comes through in the aftertaste. Good Force is an extremely dense and rich brew, packed to the brim with flavor. Perhaps a bit too intense in its sweet, flowery makeup at times. Although not entirely my style of beer, this is a well crafted beer which I expect will be very pleasing to those who take to its flavor profile.
