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.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2010
Medium offwhite head. Hazy deep orange body. Fruity mealy oily aroma with herbal notes. Dry-sweet alcoholic oily wheaty taste with toffee and tropical fruit notes. Fullish body. Mild faintly hot mouthfeel. Dry herbal coriander and alcohol aftertaste with tropical fruit and marzipan notes. Nice, drinkable, but perhaps a bit too low-key for the strength. As I drink, and the beer warms, faint resiny honeyish notes show up, improving the beer. The aroma becomes more like Westmalle Trippel after a while. Might rerate this one warm, which would probably give it better scores. (0.5l bottle, Håndverkerstuene, Oslo.)

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2010 Bottle at Cardinal. A nice-looking orangey golden beer with a small off-white head. The aroma is rather unusual, very flowery, but with an underlying wheat, fruit and hops scent coming stronger as it warms. Some spices and alcohol too. It’s full-bodied and warming in the mouth, quite sweetish, but with a good bitterness. The malty sweetness is almost balanced by the bitterness and spiced touch. Canned fruits, white sugar, flowers, and wheat too, all the way. The alcohol is evident too. Well, it’s nice, but to say it’s a friendly one might be pushing it. Not that it is rude, but it is quite intense. Like it. 101113

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - OCT 29, 2010
Bottle shared by OleR. Thanks! Pours a hazy bright yellow with a thin white head that is gone in seconds. Aroma is almost smoky, heavy wheat notes, banana, belgo yeast. Very sweet brew, but it’s got a hefty bitter and slightly sour bite in the finish. Spicy. Good balance, the bitterness might actually be a bit too heavy. Carbonation is sparse, mouthfeel is thick. It’s a bit of a wierd one, but it works. Not too hot, not too raw, but I think it could use some age to take the sting of that finish.

50 cl bottle. Brewed 2010-07-22. 50cl bottle. Very hazy yellow colour. Aroma is wheaty. Notes of hops, fruity and malty. Flavour is bitter and lots of hops. Fruity and yeasty. Notes of apples and spices. Medium long aftertaste.

Sigmund (4811) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 28, 2010
500 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 10%. Cloudy brownish golden colour, moderate white head. Strong wheaty / estery aroma, notes of yeast, cloves, banana and chamomile. The flavour is sweet with strong notes of banana, yeast, spices and chamomile. Powerful and warming mouthfeel. I admit being sceptical to a wheat beer this strong, but Good Force is actually .... well, GOOD. You’ll need an ability to handle a certain amount of sweetness, though.
