On tap at The Cove. Pours a cloudy orange with small paperthin head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a strong funk, clove, pepper, and smoke. Medium mouthfeel with light sour fruit and nice lingering smoke dry finish. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Alibi Room for the 500th beer list celebration, pours a hazy dark golden orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma and flavour brings out smoked malts, Belgian yeast, and more smoke. Fairly smoky and wild, like a traditional rauchbier. Good stuff.

Bontà assoluta per il palato. Un’esperienza straniente e anticonvenzionale che unisce sensazioni acido-acetiche e sfumature citriche, con una presenza di note affumicate che riempiono la bocca e stuzzicano l’immaginazione.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in a sampler at Ei8ht Ball. Pours a pale, semi-cloudy gold color with a small white head. The initial aroma has a big rubbery note. Pushing through, there is some tart lemon citrus, vinegar, and crackery malts. Flavor of smoked and pale malts, sauerkraut, and rubber. So weird. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a smoky, briny, rubbery mouthfeel. I don’t know how to rate this. I liked the experience but wouldn’t want a lot. One of a kind.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tria Rittenhouse, Philadelphia tap: Pours cloudy yellow/brown with a white head. Aroma is a bit strange; both the sourness and the smokiness are really evident, and combined, they smell sort of like a good-smelling sewer. Taste is unsurprisingly similar to the aroma. Light amounts of smoke with a hefty sourness. Ending up in a tart finish, with a weird combined aftertaste. Interesting. Reminds me of some traditional German beer styles.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly clear golden yellow color. Mildly hazy, thin white head. Leaves good, thicker splotches of lace. Wow, savory smokiness evident up front in the nose, and up front in the aroma. Light lemon citrus . Very interesting taste - as a fan of both sours and smoked ales, I dig this. Nice moderate sour taste, light acidity in the finish. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation, lightly slick texture. Bigger body, especially for the ABV. Kind of like the lemon slices that get thrown in with the pork on the barbecue. I enjoyed this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a very slightly hazy light gold with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells tart, wild, and smokey. Tastes like it smells with a tart, dry mouthfeel. Light on the palate. Interesting and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Poured a hazy yellow color with a large fizzy white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy sour fruit and yeast aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer for style.
