thought I was picking up the urbock which I have tried and like; won’t do that again - disliked this and didn’t even finish the bottle. aroma - some nice smoke and some unpleasant wet rag and stinkiness. taste wasn’t much better - funky, stanky end. out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Smoked bacon aroma, but not as intense as others. Has that clear weizen texture without the yeast-forwardness. Meaty throughout. Full-bodied, a bit oily. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
50cl bottle. Pours hazy dark amber with a beautiful thick off white sticky head. Aroma is light sweet malts, grain, wood smoke. Taste has the smoked note less pronounced with a good balance with the refreshing weizen flavor (banana, spices) that comes out in the finish along with the smoke again. Light body, medium carbonation. Surprisingly good.

Pours a clear iced tea brown with a thin white ring. Nice smoky aroma. Descent smoked flavors with a somewhat tangy finish. OK but not as good as the other styles.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap @ Schlenkerla / Bamberg Germany --- Nearly opaque amber brown color, smooth white head that drops to 1/2", splotches of lace. Taste is clear malt that has medium fizz, spice (especially coriander), then after the swallow, a hint of hops followed by light smoke that slowly strengthens as everything else fades. Surprisingly solid, awfully big and filling, but it is effective. I could drink it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 l bottle @ Green Sheep Bar. Hazy, deep amber color. Its aroma and taste is a fine mix of weizen and smoked characteristics. A bit thin on body and has a short finish. Otherwise it’s fine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2016 From a 500ml bottle on 12/6/2016. Pours a deep amber with a small head. Smells like smoky bacon with a bit of basement. Not surprisingly, the smoke dominates against some faint wheat notes. A bacon and fire ash beer with a wheat beer finish! Medium body and moderate carbonation. Very interesting and more than pleasant (unless you hate smoked beers), but not in the same class as the Doppelbock for mine.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Grayston Unity, Halifax. Hazy mid-brown coloured ale with a small head. Gently smoked in both aroma and taste, this is still the dominant feature of the beer and it’s very tasty for it. Ham is evident, it has a fairly easy-drinking texture for its strength, and there’s a few dark malts evident too.
