NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
Draft at GI Clybourn. Pours a deep red/brown with off-tan head. Nose is campfire, bacon, spicy esters of cloves and bread. On taste, the smoke comes through well and the esters support a sweetness that compliments the smoke very well. Kinda like smoked maple bacon. Finishes clean and sweet with the weizen yeast very complimentary. Another great smoked from GI.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Dark hazy copper color with a modest head. Served in a goblet, not sure if that would be the vessel I would chose, but who am I to argue. Initial smoke aroma is somewhat quickly displaced by the dark caramel, banana and spice of the weizenbock. Smoked malts come out quickly in the flavor, but then again yield to the wheat and malt. hints of spice in the finish from both the yeast and the alcohol. Toasted malt-o-meal in the finish and linger as well. A very nice balance of smoke, malt, and yeast for a weiss. Easily one of my favorite smoked weissbiers that I have had.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Draft at wrigleyville pours hazy light brown, little tan head. Bacon, smoke, pine. Touch of sweetness then a long dry smoky finish. Great beer that only lacks a little in drinkability.

BVery (5979) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Remarkable beer! Semi-clear dark amber pour, small white head. Nose of barbeque (smoked meat), more of the same on taste. Phenomenal smoked brew!

Dark brown-orange, off white cover. Aroma is smoked sausage, ash. Taste is bacon, sausage, ash, campfire, caramels.

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Draught at Clybourn. Pour is hazy deep brown with a medium beige head. Aroma is pleasantly smokey, lightly malty, lightly earthy, and faintly sweet. Flavor is much more balanced and cohesive than expected. The smoke is present but not overwhelming. It is coupled with the lightly sweet and spicy roasted wheat. The flavor is not unlike smoked gouda cheese in both assertiveness and subtlety. A distinct and tasty beer.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Pours amber with a thin white head (served in a goblet). Aroma of smokey meat and some sweet malt. Nice smoke flavor that was fairly well balanced with the rest of the beer. Interesting.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 11, 2010
Growler. Poured a clear brown-orange color with a light tan head. Smoke? You bet, but not overpowering. Just the right amount in my opinion. There were also shoe leather, toffee, and new rubber elements. Medium bodied and delicately sweet with a dash of salt. Good stuff.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 11, 2010
On draught at the Wriggleyville location: Pours a dark amber with a nice sized beige head. Talk about campfire! Big smokiness surrounding this beer. Like a sausage- smokey. Maintains quite a bit of fruit and wheat throughout. Cashew, caramel and bacon flavors. Mouthfeel is delightful. Fun and carbonated with a nice creamy finish."

17thfloor (2429) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2009
Pours clear rich red slightly hazed with creamy eggshell froth. Aroma is the highlight, great beechwood aroma, lovely wet forest wood, some very light banana caramel sweetness. Flavor same but a bit tannic and watery. Weak finish.
