icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Smoky, yeasty, light citrus aroma. Lively mouthfeel, with a lot of complexity for a light bodied beer. Very interesting beer, nicely bringing together some unique flavors.

Shared with fiulijn @ El Pedal. Pale golden colur with a white head, good lasting. Aroma is slightly citrus and smoky. Flavor is slighty wheaty, strong sourish, lively, fruity with notes of apple; smoky notes. The final has a long sourness maintaining smoky notes.

Bov (10468) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 5, 2013
from Erzbierschof - pale and cloudy yellow beer under a firm and long lasting white head; the smokyness comes first followed by fair sourish lactic notes; hints of hay; sourish and juicy palate with a solid carbonation; very dry and fruity finish where the sourness this time dominates the smoke - very interesting

Very hazy gold beer, short white head. Light crisp palate. A touch of sourish citrus. Mild wheat. Turns lemony. Smoke is omni present but never overwhelming. Minerally crisp finish. Sour and and smoky. Not really my thing but it’s fine.

Bottle at ChrisO tasting, thanks to Henrik, 30/12/12. Hazed pale golden/yellow with a thin white head. Nose carries sour/tarte fruit notes, wheat, touch of smoke. Taste comprises sour and tarte berry fruits, grapes, wheat, sugars. Light medium in body with spritzy carbonation lending towards a sour/smokey finish. Decent enough fayre!
