750 ml bottle thanks to errl poured into a jester king chalice. Pours a hazy gold with a big white head of foam. Decent retention. The aroma has notes of musty grass and light smoke. Meaty. The taste has more of that umami heartiness and grassy, herbal bitterness. Medium carbonation and medium body. I keep getting a little bit of a citrus quality in here as well. For my first experience with the style, I think I enjoy it well enough. I’d like to try some more examples of the style, for sure.

Crazy strange style which is tart and smokey at the same time. Good for what it is but comes off a bit disjointed. Dont get much of the odd flavors that are added not that i know what sweet gale tastes like.

Pours a hazy gold with a thick, foamy white head and lacing. It has an aroma of smoke and malt. The flavor is light smoke and malt up front with a medium malt backbone and slightly sweet and sour finish over a medium body.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle - kindly shared by Dennoman, sampled with FX Cannelle and Romain VeryNiceGuy at the pre-BBF13 tasting. Pours hazy light yellow with a soapy steady head. Aromas of smoked bacon, some sunflower buttery tohc, floral notes and lime. Lots of carbonation prickling in the nose. Light medium body, sweet and a light bitter finish. Pecullar beer; light and drinkable but a tad too much sweetness for the body of the beer; 4th and 5th sip are leass agreeable than the first ones.
