3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Look; light beige huge head and hazy orange-brown body. Aroma; tar, fried apricot, grass, peat. Taste; slightly roasted malts, liquorice, grass, peat here and tar where, dark caramel - leading to a herbal smoked finish in peat and grapefruit peels. Smoked texture and normal carbonation. Overall pretty smoked, consequently I couldn’t detect any bananas nor corianders. [50cl brown bottle 5.2%abv BB-10-2015 T@Ferie2015]

Bottle. Amber with one finger head. Mild smoky aroma. Flavor follows, almost a liquid hot dog. Some hefe sweetness underneath. Mild fruity banana. Somehow this works pretty well.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle into Weizen glass. Pours with an enormous head that may take many months to settle. Aroma is lightly smoked bbq meat with a malt background. Smells great! Opaque dark brown beer with still towering head. Taste and body are surprisingly light. Finish is sour and smoky, lots of umami. It really does taste like a cross between a Hefe and a Rauchbier. Unusual but not as brilliant as its big brother.

Dark chestnut with a tiny white head, slightly fizzy in the glass. Smells strongly of smoked bacon and a little wheaty. Smoked trout/fish flavours, smoked cheese - very interesting beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Unclear brown with a medium sized good lasting tan head. Nose has meaty smoke; spegepølse, salmon. The flavour is also focused on the smoke, but that was expected as this is in the Smoked style. Spegepølse, smoked salmon, bonfire, light dark berries, toasted bread, cookie dough, brown sugar, over ripe banana. Medium body, prickling carbonation, filling sweetness, low bitterness, some acidity. Pleasant to drink, but seems less rounded than the other offerings from this brewery, too sweet and fizzy.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz bottle, no date code.
Hazy muddy brown, typical large lasting wheat head, sparse lace. As it should, smoke dominates the aroma, but there is also tobacco, banana, burnt wood.
Flavor is sweetish at first, little bit of banana, then the campfire like smoke, tobacco, wood, a little acidity, Smoke is always there, but it doesn’t get overwhelming. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
butelka, pod mosteczkiem. niezapiekne to piwo, ale dalej tylko lepiej - wedzonka taka ogniskowo-szynkowa, przyjemna bardzo, do tego fajnie wyczuwalne to, ze weizen -jest bananowosc, lekka przyprawowosc. Bardzo mile w piciu, smak nie taki zdecydowany moze, ale milo pasujacy do aromatu, slodkawy, bez kwaskowatosci weizenowej. bardzo pelne w ustach.bardzo dobre
