3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap 4 oz. pour at Meridian Pint in Columbia Heights, Washington, DC.
Clear, straw-yellow with small off-white head and excellent lacing.
Aroma if bread, roasted malt, biscuit malt, lemon, horse blanket and light smoke.
Taste of bread, spice, wet straw and light smoke.
Medium/light body and medium carbonation.
A fine mildly smoked beer. Not robust enough to hold its own against a burger and catsup, but fine on its own.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap. Light clearish orange yellow with a white head. Some citrus, fatty smoked meat that’s fairly light, some grains in the aroma as well. Not overwhelmingly smoky, some burnt toast, and a slight sweetness. Lighter body. Strange brew.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Golden yellow, nice subtle smokey aroma. Taste is almost like a smoked heffeweizen. I am not a hop fan and did not think it was particularly hoppy. Nice beer, but not what I was expecting when I ordered it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Light smoky malts up front, followed by some weird herbal and lemony notes, a light sweetness, and a very wheaty finish. An odd one, comes close to being really good, but not quite.

On tap @ brewery. Poured a cloudy golden with a small tan head and minimal lacing. Aroma of smoke, floral notes, and citrus zest. Taste is wheat, citrus, and smoke. Very drinkable, but limited complexity.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled at DC Brau. Pours a hazy, straw color with some thin white head. Nose is mild, lightly smokey, a little malty, dried leaves, a little dried orange peel. Flavor is vitamin C tablets, buttered biscuit, buttered popcorn jelly beans, light creamed corn, some mild smoke. Wasn’t impressed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location/Date:Draft at Comet Ping Pong on Friday, September 7th.
Appearance: Pours a yellow cloud.
Aroma: Aroma is of faint smoke, wheat malt.
Taste: Wheat, faint citrus, hint of smoke.
Palate:Medium light body.
Summary: I see from the description that this is a style that hasn’t been made in awhile. It’s an interesting combination, and it’s solid but not amazing.

interesting brew, loads of smoke and a tad sour. Blends well, huge palate considering how low this is. Very impressing
