bottle. near clear gold color with almost no head. fruity pink bubblegum aroma. the flavor has very very subtle smoke. some fruity bubblegum hops. a very light/subtle example of style. i’ve had grodziskie with much more gusto(but who’s to say they were accurate examples). the bottles claims some sourness, in which i get none. i’m not sure what to expect from this style now. its has an almost czech pils like hop flavor and the smoothness of the palate with a subtle touch of smoke. you can really slug it down with a 4% abv. i enjoyed it, but i also like the more robust examples.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A really odd refreshing beer. Has a slightly fetid sweet honey aroma and flavor with a hint of the smoked. Very smooth taste with a fizzy long finish. Good and different.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma is not very pleasant and consists of dirty wash cloth, must, wheat, faint smoke, and some mineral notes. It pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a one finger white head that quickly fades to a thick film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus and wheat. The finish has moderate smoked cheese with just a hint of lemon. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I dig the flavor, but the aroma is rough.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy orange pour. Smoky, sour, grassy, a touch salty but with hefeweissen base. Sort of strange, but not bad at all. Fairly light. Good for summer.

Aroma is cross between hefeweisen and abbey dubbel. Taste is mainly water with hints of lemon and mild smokiness. Sort of boring.

(12oz bottle) clearish, lasting white fine bubbles. Nose of smoke, wheat, maybe a tinge tart, salty, celery. Taste of smoked wood, wheat, light salt, maybe a bit papery too, just kind of bland tasting. Needs some sourness.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle thanks to Danny. Stome is slightly smokey with some honey sweetness. Pours a hazy orange with minimal head. Taste is immediately smokey with some graininess. No hop character at all. I’m guessing this is a tired bottle that’s been around a while. Mostly malty sweetness with some smoke. Decent but not great by any means

Fra flaske, Luksus at Tørst, NYC. Klar, gylden, lavt hvidt skum. En del korn og sødlig fermenteret hø i næsen. Minimal syrlig note. Let let røg. Grønlige humlenoter. En vis bitterhed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark yellow gold body with a small fizzy white head. The nose is just slightly sour with some wheat, light smoke, and an earthy yeastiness. The flavor is pretty mild in its sourness, just a light hint of it on the finish where it mixes with a subtle smokiness and a little yeastiness. A rather drinkable version of the style, some of the others were a bit more in your face about one component or the other. Medium bodied with a nice soft gentle carbonation level and a lingering finish. Pretty nice beer, very approachable and subtlety complex.
