3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a good head and lots of lacing on the glass.
The aroma is a whole lot of wheat bread, some orange and some lavender. It’s got a little sort of smoke... it’s weird... but it’s not bad.
The flavor is a little bit soapy & floral with some smoke, some spiciness and some orange... ugh, weird.
not so much my thing, i guess.

Not a bad witbier. Interesting that it is smoked but honestly it doesn’t really come through in the flavor, only the smell. The smell is typical witbier with a hint of smokiness/peat. Tastes like a normal witbier with just the lightest touch of smoke. Light body with a sweet finish. Interesting beer but it could’ve been better.

On tap at brewpub
Of all the beers on draft this one was the most disappointing. That established, it is still a respectable wit beer for longer sessions. Perhaps it was the fact that this was my last sample but I was not terribly disappointed to bypass this a week later at the Great Taste of the Midwest. Your mileage may vary though and there is little risk in a four ounce sample.
Aroma / Appearance - The bronze polished base shines like copper pennies. A fluid texture retains wheat and a rubbery meaty texture. This is where the problems arise. Whatever it is meant to be it feels off the mark.
Flavor / Palate - Wheat and malt rise from the glass. The next flavor is a bit shocking however. The taste of brisket makes me wonder what went into this recipe. Maybe there was something in the tap line. Whatever the reason at some point I will have to try this again. I’m sure that it has to be better than my initial impressions.

Bomber, love the aroma of mild citrus and spice, cloudy yellow with good head. Has a strong taste of fruit and malt backbone. This is a great Belgian white!
