Gold pour with a fluffy white head. Nose is bbq, florals, sweet, salt, and earth. Very smooth on the palate, heavy smoke upfront, earthy malts, juniper, and an easy finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to Sam! Hazy golden pour, small white head. Nose and flavor are crazy and rather awesome, with huge sour, smoke, and herbacious kick throughout. Beechwood a la rauchbier is certainly apparent, but not moreso than undeniable lactic funk. Ginny woody bite complements this bizarre but attractive quaff. I’m into it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a shallow, creamy, fine-grained head. Nose is smoke, lemon, stone fruit, sea salt, and peeled green wood. On the tongue, it’s mostly smoke and sour; saline, herbal, some honeyed sweetness, a touch of fruit, and earthiness rounds it out. Creamy yet sharp on the palate, with a long, acetic finish. I don’t get much juniper, though there’s a ghost of it in the close. I don’t know if I can say good, but I’ll assuredly say fascinating.

Bomber. Thanks to mike12da. Bacony, smoky nose, a bit sourish with some stinky herbal notes, creosote, and tuna fish. Hazy apple juuice color. Sour fruit initial, moves to a sweet peachy flavor with some light spice, then some smoke and funk, and later celery and wheat. Thin-medium body. Wow! Very uusual and complex. Nice tartness, but not a pucker monster -- just very pleasant. Couldn’t drink this everday, but it is a special brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle. Deep, cloudy, glowing orange. Great nose: smoke, berries, grapefruit, lemonade. Very tangy, lightly sour, berries, bacon, salt. Nice blend of smoke and sour with a pretty strong bitterness as well. Complex and wacky, though it comes together very well.
