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.

freretoc (1381) - 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.

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

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.

ctipping (713) - Florida, USA - SEP 14, 2015
650 mL bottle poured into a wine glass. Clear golden with a small white head Smells meaty and acidic. Smells more savory than smokey. Lemon tartness and then it gets meaty. Almost salty and hammy. Grainy throughout and pretty sour. Light body with high carbonation. Fascinating flavor that I didn’t think I would like. Nice surprise.
