3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

Hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma and taste of smoke, some ham, citrus and bread. The body was light and the finish nicely sour and dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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?

On tap at Irreale. Smoky aroma, with green olive and cedar wood notes. High refreshing acidity, mineral, salty, smoky. Weird one, but really good beer. I will repeat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
