A true Southern California original, this smoked wheat ale pays homage to our own California tradition of yearly wild fires. This unique medium bodied wheat ale is slightly fruity with a pleasant hint of smokey goodness. Give this refreshing, yet flavorful seasonal ale a try and we’re sure you’ll think it’s a fitting beer for our hot summers.

Pour on tap at the brewery, clear yellow pour with thin white head, aroma has smoke notes, hints of biscuit, bread, slight clove, banana, and bubblegum, very interesting. Taste is a mix of wheat, slight vanilla, clove, banana, nice smoke notes, finishing fairly dry, sweet.

Cloudy yellowish orange, decent lacing and retention. Aroma took me a minute to figure out, but yes, it’s got clove banana and all the usual wheat stuff but it’s also smokey. Medium bodied, strange mix. Misses the mark for me, but I could imagine liking this.

daknole (10837) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Orange pour, white head. Aroma has some cloves, gum, banana, wheat and smoke. A cool smelling beer and the flavor is pretty good too. Wheaty and smokey. A neat combination.

KyotoLefty (9040) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 20, 2012
Draught at the brewery. Hazy orange color with a fine head. Smokey nose with dirty weizen character, a bit of clove. Flavor also somewhat smokey, but not a full-on smoke, and undistinguished weizen flavors. Not at all terrible, but it doesn’t do either the smoke or the wiezen right.

From tap at the brewery. Pours hazy orange with a small, creamy, dense and off white head. Aroma is light phenolic, smoked. Fruity and light estery. Bitter and dry into a light estery and smoked finish.

Damico (3138) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Pours cloudy amber with an orange hue. It smells like a wheat field just set on fire, early smoke stages, bit wheat potent base in the nose. There are big wheat flavors, not over bready, and slightly sweet. The body is medium but the flavor doesn’t bring the smoke as the aroma did.

hazy orange. Taste has a nice wheat feel and consistency, with a hint of smokiness. An enjoyable beer
