On tap at Vices et Versa. God I love the name on this beer. it is a cloudy light straw gold. It has a mild fruity earthy aroma. The taste is earthy, lots of maple, smokey, honey glazed ham - good stuff. Very good stuff especially when you consider the low ABV.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild rauchiger Antrunk mit säuerlichen Noten, die schnell verschwunden sind. Dafür im Mittelteil vollmundig, etwas hefig, leicht herb. Eher langweiliger Nachgeschmack mit einer Mischung aller vorherigen Aromen in ihrer milden Form. 11/11/8/9/8/10

Bottle from Vaaland. Pours unclear weak golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is surprisingly some smoked and cured meat,weak fruits. Taste is light sweet, very subdued smoke, more fresh fruits, high carbonated, dry yet creamy mouthfeel, lots of spicy undernotes towards the lingering finish, a very good summer beer

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Station Ho. St., Montreal tap: Pours whitish, cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is light bits of funk, a bit of smoke, and some of that sour tart smell, whatever that is. Taste was not as sour as I expected that it would be, and it was actually more sweet than I thought it would be. The body was also fuller. There was also some spiciness in there.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75 cl bottle. Bottled on 10/2013.
Pours pale hazy golden color with a huge head, somewhat of a gusher this one. Quite weird but pleasant yeasty, spicy and smoky aroma, some lemon. Lemony fruits and yeast on the flavor, spices, some faint toffee notes and earth. A bit of a surprise this one, very pleasant in a way, and very flavourful with such a low abv. Weird but nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden colour with a small head. Aroma is very interesting with smoked wood, white bread and herbal notes. Flavour of smoked wood, clove, pale malts, grassy bitterness, white bread and some herbal notes. Light bodied and soft carbonation. I’d say this is a smoked witbier. Easy, but weird.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle) cloudy orange colour with a ridiculously tall head (the bottle sat for a week undisturbed in the cellar, then it was carefully opened - the foam exploded out, and kept coming out for about 5 minutes continuously as the beer was being poured); aroma is musty, smoky, smoked longans; balanced and refreshing flavour

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle,75cl corked. It’s an unclear, yellowish orange beer with a nice, white head. The aroma has some smoked malts, a fruity touch, some pale malts and hints of grains and beef jerky. It’s medium to thin bodied, dry and soft on the palate, low carbonation level. Some sweetness in the flavor, with salt, something herbal and spiced, feeling like coriander, still not, and a faint bitterness. Lasting finish. Very refreshing and easy drinkable this one, and tasteful too. 140502
