The Monarchy and Kissmeyer collaboration. First time trying this style.
Pours hazy light orange, one finger white head that pops away fast, bombarded by a lot of aggressive fizz strings. Minimal tracing on the glass.
Smoked cheese gets in the room right after popping the cap. Salted pork, some fruitiness also, like Turkish smoked apricots and orange juice.
Mainly smoke in the front of the taste, all over the mildly sweet wheaty malts. Nice fruitiness adds complexity, with sweet orchard fruit, crisp/sour lemon zest and a dry mustiness, like unripe white grapes (a bit aromatic, gin-like, so probably because of the juniper twigs). Smoke fades away bit by bit and some spices come to play, bit of wood too. Mildly bitter finish, salty, but clean.
Light body, rather fizzy, but surprisingly refreshing for a smokey salty beer, but then again, it is my first Gose.
Hopefully there will be more, this was really good. Great complex style, and Viking Gose is probably one of the best.

Pours a hazy, pale orangey / golden color, topped with a small white head.
The aroma is very pleasant - smoked and woody, slight fruits also present. but mostly smoked - reminds me of a certain smoked cheese.
The taste is not strong as was expected. Balanced begining comes to a slightly spicy and tiny bittery finish.
Never had this style before, but I definitely love it. Easily drinkable and delicious.
