22 oz bottle from the good man nearbeer, who I met up with on a family trip to Knoxville. 22 oz bottle poured into a Green Flash tulip. Cloudy brass yellow with effervescent white head. Head disappears to nothing, but quickly comes back with a bit of swirling. Nose is tart mid citrus sweetness. Lots of flavors moving around on this one. Bit of tart, saltiness, vinegar bite, smoke. My wife says "Tastes like meat!" Thanks for a great bottle to bring back from an adventure.

blipp (6869) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Growler. Pours gold with a white head. Mild acidity and smoke, quite well balanced and restrained, with some tart lemony notes, mild meaty notes, wheat, and a relatively clean finish. Quite drinkable.

larsga (6676) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
Small coarseish white head doesn’t last. Hazy opaque yellow body. Smoky lemony aroma with mealy yuzu notes. Acidic, verging on sour, smoky herbal lemony taste with yuzu notes. Mid-to-thin body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Acidic mealy smoky aftertaste with lemony notes. It’s fairly simple and straightforward, but I like it. (0.65l bottle, from Kihoskh, Copenhagen.)

Pyrmir (4067) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 16, 2015
On tap at O’Connors. Slightly hazy golden with white head. Aroma tart, lactic, smoky, some smoked meats and faint pale malts. Taste is sharp lactic, tart and sour, lots of smoke and smoked meats, finish is smoky and sour. This is great in small amounts but a half pint was a tad too much.

Nische (1152) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2015
Tap at CBC. Pours a hazy pale yellow colour with white head. Aroma of tart citrus, herbs and some smoked bacon. Quite strong flavour of wheat, strong sour citrus, some smoked wood and orange. Smokiness is less prominent in taste. Pretty close to Berliner Weisse?
