SlackerMads (2824) - DENMARK - MAY 2, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy pale yellow with a medium sized white head. Nose has lots of lemon, light smoke and dough. Sausage like smoke comes more through in the flavour, still lots of lemon also, white bread, sour peach. Medium body, light sweet and medium sour. It is quite sour, but no unpleasant yoghurt or bile, so it works well. Crisp and refreshing, reminds me of the Almanac Golden Gate Gose only with smoke. Good summer beer, would buy again.

Sour smell with slightly smoked smell, light appearance, very sour taste, light smokeyness, buttery finish...the finish hurts it a bit...wish it wasn’t buttery, and wish it was a bit smokier..butteryness lightens with time

Bottle. Hazy golden yellow, whitish head. Citrus, campfire, bit of minerals and sour wheat in aroma. Smoked fruits too. Tart notes, smoked bacon and grapefruit in taste. Wheat and sour notes in aftertaste. It works out quite well with a tasty combination of citrusfruits, bacon and campfire in finish. Quite interesting one.
