beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 11, 2012
Cloudy yellow pour with a thin white head. Pleasant aroma of smoke, wheat, citrus and mild sourness. The lactic sourness is more present in the flavor than in the aroma, itís joined by smoke, citrus and wheat, the flavor is very sharp and refreshing. The body is bigger than what I expect from a Berliner Weisse, although itís not too heavy, the texture is a bit oily and the carbonation is lively. This might not be the best of the style, but itís definitely worth a try and I wouldnít mind buying this again.

Stunning. Get one. Get two. Get in! This is smokey on opening, smokey in the glass and smokey in the mouth, with softness from the malt and a sharp bitter but not over the top finish. Itís just a good beer .

500 ml bottle from the Party Source. Pours a hazy yellow gold color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have smoked grainy malts, bread, lemon citrus, salt, lactic sour notes, strange yet interesting beer.

Hammy78 (961) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle from the University Plaza LCBO. Pours a cloudy golden colour, big foamy white head, spotty lace. Smells, sweet caramel, malt, also a little smokey. Tastes not quite what I imagined, no sour or tartness or salt. Tastes more like a burn banana, and sweet.

Spab (3374) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2016
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a gently hazy, dull golden colour with smallish off-white head. Aroma is fairly smoky with some wheat and gentle sour fruitiness. Flavour is also smoke forward but the pear is more prominent as well as some lactic sourness with some light wheaty notes. Average body. Decent.

Smoky more than sour. Milky, but also, somehow, thin. Not bad, but didnít live up to my Oh too high expectations.
