Looks pretty bad and palate not great, but you get both the smoke and the tea, mostly in the aftertaste. Interesting, especially with the low alcohol content. Bottle from De Zwart in Wilnis.

Lore (1107) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 27, 2014
hazy orange colour, medium sized off-white head, which lasts for some minutes; aroma of smoke, some smoked ham and green tea; taste of roastedness, smoky notes and a bit too intensive tea; will not be my favourite smoked beer

laiti (5768) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 13, 2014
33 cl bottle @ hotel room, Amsterdam. Brewed(?) 09.09.2013
Not sure what Hofje van Wijs is, but I bought mine at some liquor store at Amsterdam
Aroma has smoke and tar – feels quite like Lapsang Souchong. Also some sweet malt and grainy tones in the background. And raw bun dough typical to grätzers. Flavour is somewhat tart with citrus, gooseberry bush leaves, smoke and dough. Also rising grapefruit after some sips. This has captured the soul of the tea quite well, but I wonder if the tartness is intentional. Or is this just too old bottle? Without the tart notes this could be delicious and unique, now this just feels somewhat contaminated.

TheCametron (1805) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle. A Lapsang Souchon smoked tea beer. Points for originality. Pours Amber Orange with no head. The smoky woody flavouring is too dominant. It was interesting at first then turned in to a bit of a chore. Black forest ham. Not carbonated enough. Not balanced enough. Ham fisted.

GSAP (499) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 24, 2014
Tsja, rokerig en stoffig in aroma, zuur en rokerig in smaak, en licht rokertje in nasmaak. Niet spannend, wel drinkbaar. 6 maanden overtijd.

Bosbouw (1302) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2014
Heldere koperen kleur met bijna geen kraag. Ruikt zoetig, honing, rook en bbq. Smaakt naar koude thee. Weinig smaak, iets citrus, fruitig, kruiden en een beetje rokerig.

harrisoni (13856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2014
Bottle from Reading BF 2014 and drunk at home. Hazy amber colour lasting beige head. Smoked cheese aroma. Wood smoke. OK in the mouth but a little thin to carry the strong smoke flavour. Not sure the balance works. Slightly sour. Strong smoke and then not sure there is enough malt or body to back it all up. Quite spicy on the finish. Strong flavours but not sure all of them work together.
