Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Hazy pale golden. Citric tart nose with some butter and mild buttery smoke. Light bodied, tart and citric with spritzy mouthfeel. Slight bacon and rubber. Refreshing, yet flavourful.

JStax (5498) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Hazy yellow with a white head of foam. The aroma has sour lemon at first, but then the smoke hits you. Ham and bacony notes come through and are even with the sourness. Lighter body and medium carbonation, though that smoke makes the beer feel bigger than it really is. Interesting stuff.

Bottle at the RBSG Lobby Share. Pours a hazy orange gold with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is smoke, wheat, wood. Medium body, wheat, smoke, ash, light tartness, very good.

Beer5000 (5962) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2016
650 ml bottle. Hazy golden body with a moderate sized white head. Aroma is refreshing light sour berry/fruity with salt, mild smoke, bacon and lemon. Flavor is also light, but distinct sour fruit, lemon, some salt and moderate smoke/bacon. Medium body and quite long lasting aftertaste. Refreshing, quite nice, lot less demanding than expected, actually missed a bit more complexity, but all inn all an nice and refreshing beer that shouldn’t offend anyone..

Nocturne (1859) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2016
650ml bottle. Murky orange shade. Fleeting head. Aroma is a real interesting clash of citrus and smoky flavours. Waxy, gummy, fruit rind taste. Not so much smoke here. Carb helps it along but still a bit tough to work through. On the whole a fair success, as it all seems to work.

freretoc (1723) - Besançon, FRANCE - FEB 3, 2016
Bue en bouteille de 50cl à la brasserie, couleur très très blonde, peu de mousse mais grosse effervescence. Nez sur le jambon fumé. Attaque en bouche sur le fumé, l’acidité et vraiment une fin de bouche très salé. Le bacon, je préfère le manger que de le boire.

esp0r (2756) - NORWAY - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle from Gulating Lørenskog enjoyed at home
Golden, thin white head that falls down quite fast. Smell of smoked wood, hints of bacon, some tart yoghurt, light malts. Light sweet, quite sour, medium i would say. Lemon, lactic acids, smoke, wood, quite complex. Light bitter finish. Very nice, the lactic acids and smoke works well together

Guruhso (428) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle. Courtisy of plovmand. Aroma of smoke, fruit, apple, citrus, smoked paprika. The flavour starts sweet but finish dry and sour with a lingering sourness and smoke aroma. Amazing Combonation. Medium body and the texture is juicy. A surprisingly good beer. Balanced and enjoyable.
