4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of smoke, light clove, banana, and a hint of citrus. It pours a cloudy orange with a one finger off-white head that eventually fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. There is some sporadic thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus that is quickly followed by moderate smoke. The finish has moderate sour lemon. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, I really didn’t see this coming. Considering I don’t like sour and roasty, I’m surprised sour and smoke works so well for me. I wish I bought more.

Nice little beer. Pours cloudy yellow with good head and lacing. Nice smoked aroma with some bretta and funk. Bitter slightly burnt finish, but not overbearing on rauch. I can find no fault with this - generally well put together.

hazy orange gold, thin fizzy white ring. Dusty smoke nose, heavy wheat with considerable ester, light sour with heavy spritz lemon. Flavor is heavy lemon candy followed by light smoke, fatty and oily slickness. Smoke is schlenkerla quality, wished for more. Balanced throughout if a little sweet, no biting acids thankfully despite variety. Well done.

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.
