Refrigerated 0.5 L brown bottle poured into a La Trappe glass (closest I had to a bowl). Pours light amber with small white head which dissapates quickly. Medium body, medium carbonation, and light tart aroma. Taste is tart malt, some smoke (mostly pepperoni), and mild grain. Interesting and pretty good, but nothing really special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500mL Bottle, purchased in San Diego. Light smoked meat aroma, paired with some of that Hefe banana peel. At first, this is ass-kicking, thirst quenching, complex and rounded. As it warms, the wheat takes over with some rubberiness, the lacto gets a little languid, and the smoke fades into the background. I love the juicyfruit yeast quench finish and the breadth of the flavor profile, but I want a little more levity, bubbliness and a bit more sour tang. Still, worth trying.

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.
