Bottle at Craig’s. Pours cloudy amber with a big head, very high carbonation. Aromas are sulphurous and peppery, smoke and sharp lemon. Taste is sour and woody with salt at the end. Strange brew, but good.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
750 ml bottle from errl poured into a Jester King Chalice. Pours a hazy gold with a big, fluffy white head of foam. Pretty good retention. In the aroma I get a definitive smoke note along with a more subtle, fruity tartness and a little bit of wet straw. In the taste, I get a meaty, bacon, umami with a turn toward tartness. Some salty notes come through to accompany the meaty smoke. Medium to high carbonation. I can drink this in a small quantity, but this is not something I would want any sort of quantity of. The sour smoky salty combination, I can usually get into it, but this one just isn’t setting right with me.

Bottle. Pours golden with white head. Aroma is smokey, not much else. Taste is smokey, BBQ. Aftertaste is way too smokey. A little tart too. This while thing is a but muddled for me, not sure what else too do with it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at THE FESTIVAL 2013 in Maine with Andrew, Jay and Kramer. Pours a hazy golden body with thick white lacing. Aroma is nice woody, smoked meats, lemon tart, pineapple - wow this is strange. Mouthfeel is medium with a nice tart palate; notes of smoked meats, funky lemon - lightly acidic. Super strange, but works.

Orange hazy, big white head. Smells of smoke, some tart fruits and malts. Moderate sweet, a nice sour kick and a touch of salt. Nice play between the fruityness and smoked malts, very nice. A ver ynice Smoked gose

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by JBPortland ! Pours a slightly hazy golden color with two fingers of thick foam. The nose is very peat smoked forward with bits of fruity acidity and rustic grain peaking through. The palate has the initial punch of peat smoke but opens up into a tart lemon, field grain, salty wood, wet campfire... Pretty nicely balanced and refreshing on the finish. Rustic, smokey and sour !

750ml bottle, thanks cparles! Pours hazy yellow with medium head. Nose is funky campfire, hay, citrus, and maybe a little gasoline? Taste is fruity spices, straw, funk, hay. Finish is smokey, plastic, citrus, earthy must. Grew on me as it went, but kind of a strange one.
