Had on draft in sac at Pangaea... Aroma is smoky and tart... Flavor is fairly sour up front with notes of peat and smoke on the finish... Amazing.

500 ml bottle poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a white head of velvety foam, good sheets of lacing and retention as well. Aroma is doughy and a touch smoky. Some clove and cardamom esters as well. The doughy, estery, smoke come through in the taste, along with a hearty sourness kickng in and dominating. Spritzy carbonation.

Bottle via trade, shared at Stout 3 & Freestyle tasting. It pours hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is soft smoke, wheat, meaty, earth, touch of BBQ sauce and light sweetness. The taste is tart lemon, light smoke, lactic, meatiness, faint ketchup, sherbet and wheat with a dry, lightly tart finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Alcohol is well-hidden. I canít say itís my favourite style, but this example is smooth, well-balanced and drinkable.

Itís smoked berlinerweisse. Why even bother rating this. Obviously itís great. Amazing how the smokiness actually helps makes this beer more refreshing. Pretty strong smoke character all the way through. Lightly lactic acidity. Blue label.
