3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. A hazy dark blonde beer, with a large, frothy, lightly lacing, mostly lasting white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted bread/grain), lightly to moderately yeasty (dust), with notes of smoke, lemon, banana. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation, average length finish with light to moderate bitterness. A pleasant surprise. A strongly wheaty and lactic beer, with a good amount of both drinkability and complexity.

Gravity at Cambridge Beer Festival 2013. Wow this divided opinions! Crazy shit. Cloudy yellow brown. Smokey, funky, grainy, citrusy, lactic, sour. The ladies came up with lapsang souchong and lemon as a description, I thought a bit of kvass in there too. I think I liked it, was an experience for sure.

Hazy straw white head. Aroma of wheat smoke yeast/banana. Wheat on the palate with light smoke and yeast. Tastes like a lightly smoked hefe. Very drinkable with nice flavor and not offensive. I could really drink a lot of this beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
4.0 A: Murky dark yellow brown color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a decent sized ring of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Good balance between the base and the smoke. The smoke offers a nice complementary campfire vibe. Mild lemony tartness from the base along with neutral wheat and a light peppery spiciness. Unique to me and quite pleasant.
4.0 T: Again there is great interplay between the base and the smoke. Tart lemon with campfire smoke straight up works. Hay, wheat, peppery spice, light barn funk.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Good here, but I like a bit more creaminess in the style.
4.0 D: Well rounded tasty brew. This is an instance in which combining two things I like if a huge success.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from EithCubes. Hazy, golden orange body with a lasting, fluffy white head. Light sourness and wheat in the nose. Reminds of a Beriner Weiße. Light, fruity esters and a strangely pleasant, metallic hint from the smoke. Citric tartness pops through upon the first sip. Lovely, light smoke and some grainy malt. A little sweet orange peel is there, too. Medium body with medium carbonation. Tartness is coating and lingering on the tongue. Overall a very tasty beer and the smoke is integrated beautifully. I’m a fan.
