@ Gyllenbock 17-10-28: Mycket lätt rökighet och något tunn kropp, men helt ok. gyllenbock (10294) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2017
Bottle from Beergium. Golden with a medium white head. Quite mild with smoke, malt, some ham and light herbs. The body was medium. A decent one.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2017 Pretty intense smoked beer, coupling a delicious Blackberry Farm saison with heavy-duty smoked malts, adding dominant char notes to all the farmhouse mellowness. Moderately sweet with vanilla, clove, banana, and grass all providing a solid saison base, yet the smokiness underlines every aspect of the bottle, tacking on an all-encompassing blackened heaviness to the general farmhouse subtlety. Never grows overpowering though, ultimately achieving a precarious balance between lovely trip-through-a-meadow grassiness and a scorched-earth charred finish. Takes a while to attune to what this pint's puttin' down, but when you get it, you get it. Deceptively well-made beer.
