4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very intersting new beer, as close to the original style as possible. Easy going beer with a great taste, luckily low in alcohol. Breadish, soft, not too smoky, balanced. I really enjoyed this. Not easy to distinguish from the Grodziskie (samerecipe with willow-bark added) however.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Bruce’s, London. Thanks for another rare style from Paul. Pours hazy gold with a fine, frothy white head. Dry smoke in the nose, some dry dough and hay. Light sweet flavor, pretty dry, mild straw bitterness, light smokey meat, mellow bitterness. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Dry finish, lightly smokey, some meat, hay. Interesting beer. Pretty drinkable.

Bottle. Pours hazy pale straw with small white head. Sourish, yeasty and grainy aroma. Bitter, hoppy onset, sourish body, paperlike finish. Watery mouthfeel. Dry finish. My first grodziskie (the very first bottle I tasted when I was six years old doesn’t really count).

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Maslany i przede wszystkim wedzony aromat, serowy posmak. Jakby sfermentowany kefir, troche kwaskowate ale za razem delikatne w calosciowej mojej ocenie. Piana utrzymuje sie do konca degustacji, kolor bliski belgijskim bialym piwom. Ciekawie odwzorowany stary i zapomniany gatunek piwa Grodziskiego przez holendrow.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from bottle thanks to Joes. Opaque pale yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste are again, like the Grodziskie, tobacco-like and lightly bitter. Absolutely weird.
