3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle at the St Neots ’Booze on the Ouse’ Beer Festival 2016. Mid- to dark brown, hazy. No head but quite a lot of fizzy carbonation. Oaky aroma with stone fruit. Taste is sweet and malty, and the wheat holds the smoke incredibly well. Starts out OK but just gets better and better. Full lip-smacking body. Excellent.

Sehr leckeres Rauchbier, Weizen schmeckt man recht wenig heraus.
Leichte Malzsüße, danach ein wenig Banane zu erahnen.
Im Anschluss viel Rauch, welcher lange im Mund bleibt.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle; pours dark brown with a white head; aroma of smoke, wheat, and a hint of banana; taste is smoked bacon, wheat, and banana; dry smoky finish; the smoke aroma and flavor are present but not quite as dominant as their other beers but this is still very nice
