Bottle thanks Tom. Pours hazy orange with light soapy head. Nose is big time BBQ and some fruit. Tastes of smoked wheat, lots of kiebalsa, lemon, lime, and wood. Lively palate and tar finish. The hammyness lingers. While first sip is a bit much it gets better and better as you enjoy.

Bottle thanks to Jason. Pours yellow gold with white head. Nose and taste of beef jerky, BBQ pit, smoked pork, smoked banana, smoked wheat, smoked wood and lightly soured wheat. The smoke is perfect - not overdone, but very smoky. None of the "off notes" that some smoked beers acquire. Tons of fresh BBQ, smoked pork and jerky. Lighter than medium body. A total home run.

Damico (2512) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2013
Pours unclear lemon white very hazy with white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma brings lebanon baloney, tons of that smokey meat flavor, kielbasa, crazy. The flavor brings a beautiful tart acidity that goes down so smooth on the palate with a decent sweet yeasty ending. It is a bit dry, but not too dry at all, so nice!

Totally unexpected winner here. Grabbed a couple bottles in Huntington, LI and had no idea how much I would love this beer. Think smoked berliner weisse, with a hint of beef jerky and you have Vlad the Inhaler. Pale straw in color with a thin bright white head. Smoky aroma. Taste is incredible, as it has a sour tartness that goes so well for the style. Very drinkable and for everything that is going on, the flavor does not linger one bit. Very refreshing and a must try if you like smoked beers.

Pith (123) - New York, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours cloudy almost light pickle juice yellow with dissipating thick white medium carbonation head. Sour smelling with wheat and smoke and wood hops. Stars high carbonation almost pickle juice. Sour and smoke. Middle sweetness. Burnt oak? Finish wholly smoked saurkraut. Interesting truly andvery good with kkielbasa. Definitely a wheat with a Polish twist.

Bottle. Golden / yellow color with an averaged sized head. Initially I was getting some band-aids in the aromas. Smoke, wheat, woody, fruity and some some funk. Another different and nice.

Aroma is very smoky, a lot of oak, appearance is a little hazy. Taste of smoke with a little bit of funk, very interesting beer style. Overall even though the alcohol content is low, not the easiest beer to drink a lot of.

Pours a light pale yellow with a billowing three fingered head. Heavily smoked aroma accompanied by some fruitiness and funk. The flavor is initially sweet and finishes sour.

I’ve been looking for this for a while. I really love reproductions of beer recipes throughout history. The pour is very opaque yellow, slight orange, like an unripened peach, white head. The aroma is mild smoke., light fruit, banana, bubblegum. The flavor is smoke, sour lemon, cereal grains, very nice. Medium, slightly thin in body. The finish is very light smoke, salt, almost no hoppiness to speak of, just a mild bittering, like weak noble hops. Excellent beer, unique and interesting. Glad I finally got to try this.
