COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s not a smoke beer. It’s not a tart Berliner Weisse. It’s maybe a weird saison. BerlinerRauchSaison. Yes! Low gravity beer with good presence of wheat. A small layer of smoke malt disappears after a few sips. And light tartness and spice from the Saison yeast. Refreshing and flavourful at the same time.

laiti (7263) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2015
Draught (3.8%) @ Lambic Foeder, Bruges. Rated on 25.06.2015
Aroma has sweet and soapy citrus and mild cereal. Flavour has strong citrus, tart notes and some mild lemonade tones. A citrusy wit - reminds me of some lemonade-like Belgian ones.

77ships (5299) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 26, 2015
250 ml. draft @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Hazy golden, big quickly fading egg-white head. Mellow sweetish smoked wheat nose mixed with big sweet gelatin candy, sweet candy, wheat, plastic, a combination that doesn’t make any sense to me. Taste is very odd mixture that doesn’t work for me, like gummy bears, sweet candy with smoked plastic, lingering plastic, faint almost vaguely peat smoked wheat, lingering odd smoked plastic aftertaste mixed with the heavy gelatin candy sweetness, soda, odd mix, lingering plastic finish that reminds me of bitter plastic, peach, plastic wheat,… Very odd mix flavors that really don’t jell for me,… Overly carbonated. Doesn’t work for me, I had higher hopes.
