3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 Presentation: It was poured from a brown 1 pint 0.9oz bottle into a pint glass. The label has no freshness date but it does have the abv (5.2%) and a description of the beer on the back.
Appearance: The body has a nice copper colored body with clear reddish highlights. From the pour I got a tall, light tan head that makes some spotty and slick lacing on the glass.
Smell: Its aroma is smoky and bready. The smoke character is very similar to imitation bacon bits and this is backed up with bready and roasted maltiness.
Taste/Palate: The smoked malt is the dominant force here and it is balanced with some mild bready sweetness. Under this are some very light yeast notes and some faint herbal/mineral hops notes. The palate has a slightly slick smooth feel with a medium body and carbonation.
Notes: There is a little more balance to the Weizen compared to some of there other offerings and so it is more interesting and drinkable for my taste.

Hazy Brown with a nice lasting tan head. Good amount of carbonation in this one. Light smoke aroma. Soft clean wheat taste on the palate with a light body. Finishes slightly dry. Something different than your average wheat beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
August 2011. From bottle. My least favorite of them all. Aromas of banana, close, spice, malt and of course smoke. While better than most weissbiers, I’m still not sold on this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice aroma of smoked malt, but not enough wheat aroma there. I can’t smell any banana or citrus fruit there. The smokedness is in the foreground and covers everything else. Still, it’s less distinct than in "Jak w dym" by Pinta. It’s better balanced. It has very nice color of honey and amber, but the head could last longer. There is pleasant bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable but heavy. The heaviness is the most distinct weizen-descendant factor.

A smoke beer combined with a weizen beer. Result is mix of extreme smokiness, on a body of soft wheat. Good beer.

Off white weak head. Cloudy light brown colour. Aroma is malty, fruity with date and sweet smoked notes. Flavor is malty too with apricot and smoked peat tones, ending in a moderately smokey and fruity finish. Light bodied.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
50 cl. bottle. Hazy, dark amber colour with a big, fluffy off-white head. Sweet aroma with wheat malts and fruitiness, banana notes as usual in wheat beers. Also smoked malts, bonfire, caramel and sausages. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a good, creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes sweet with smoke, light tar and fruitiness from the wheat. Good, not as good as the Märzen, that is more consistent as a smoked beer. A good choice for the rookie in the world of smoked beers.
