A refreshingly complex wheat beer. Aromas of clove and banana intermingle with light smoke imparted from German malt kilned over beechwood fires.

Pours a slightly hazy straw gold with a foamy white head and lacing. The aroma is smokey with some bananas and clove, and the flavor is similar, with a light, smokey finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating 1123 - 08.06.2014. - I’m rating this as a Smoked - not a clearcut heffy. Pours a bright yellow - mild cloudiness with a fluffy head that fades quickly. Distinct smoked wheat aroma erupts from this pour.Very unique body, mild alcohol warmth, predominant smokiness on the palate tempered with the sweet, citrusy and earthy herbal/clove components in the weizen.Beautifully done.

After reading the deScription and some reviews I had high hopes for this but they weren’t fulfilled. Appearance is average with a small short lived head, no lace, and a hazy amber color. Aroma is mainly smoke with some traditional hefeweizen in the background. Flavor’s similar to nose, with yeast and smoke up front and dominating along with carbonic tang, malt sweet barely noticeable Body is ok. Finish is a long bitterness that clashes with the smoke. Oh well..

Smokiness in a beer is a new experience for me. Add clove and that distinctive wheat beer taste and it’s a little heady - but just medium abv. - exotic.

Smokey smell is incredible, the smoky, spicy taste is perfect. Beautiful golden blonde color, I log this beer.

A very nice hef. Pours a cloudy orange with a white head. Smells of lemon, cinnamon and smokiness. Taste is like a saison, with some lemon and banana, but with a nice smokiness and cinnamon spiciness that sticks on your tongue. Quite nice. Had in the bottle.

Poured from bomber. Nice orange golden hazy color with a light lacy head. Weird overall aroma of banana, medicine or clove, wheat/yeast and hint of smoke. Thin yeast driven body gives way to similar flavors as the aroma. Very unique

swanmann (685) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - NOV 15, 2014
From the bomber: Golden orange color with ample, well-sustained eggshell colored foam, leaving sparce lacing. It smells like a hefe, but a bit subdued. The flavor is not as sweet as the aroma, with a touch of extra bitter toastyness. It’s not quite a syrupy as the aroma either. didn’t taste much of the smokey quality. Sort of just like a standard hefe, but not bad.

Cloudly, muddled gold body with a quick to die head. The aroma is lightly smoked with wooden and earthen notes aplenty. A mild weiss spice blend with hints of clove and banana. Well carbonated with grainy malts and a ligth grassy hop in the middle. Pervasive but moderate smoky notes linger well throughout the finish. A nice, rather refreshing smoked brew.
