From a 16oz can:

Appearance: Clear gold, good head.

Smell: Smells like a malt liquor--fruity apple, pear, grape notes. Not what I was expecting.

Taste: Fruity, grape and apple, some grain, reminds me of wine but with beer-like feel. Pretty weird but not offensive.

Overall: Kveik yeast does some weird things, sometimes it tastes meaty, sometimes fruity. Most beers I've had with this yeast have been hoppy but this one definitely is not, so the yeast can be weird out in the open. Interesting to try but I doubt I'll get another 4 pack.

Poured a froathy head that disappeared to nothing and no lace. Smells of yeast, but has a lager smell too. Similar in taste. What makes it Norse? A Belgian lager? Overall it's not for me.

I would actually place this under the Belgian Blonde Ale heading, as this beer is very much about the yeast. Tastes like a more tropical Belgian Blonde actually. Flavorful and fairly easy to drink. Just a slight aftertaste is a hindrance.

This is a strange beer. Can definitely taste (and smell) the yeast, which at first smell (and taste) mistaken for cereal grains. Some mild tartness offset by the yeast and malt flavor - not bad, but let it warm up to let it put on the best show for you.
