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.

Koelschtrinker (10475) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 20, 2014
Mild rauchiger Antrunk mit säuerlichen Noten, die schnell verschwunden sind. Dafür im Mittelteil vollmundig, etwas hefig, leicht herb. Eher langweiliger Nachgeschmack mit einer Mischung aller vorherigen Aromen in ihrer milden Form. 11/11/8/9/8/10

gunnar (5219) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2014
Bottle from Vaaland. Pours unclear weak golden with a huge frothy white head. Aroma is surprisingly some smoked and cured meat,weak fruits. Taste is light sweet, very subdued smoke, more fresh fruits, high carbonated, dry yet creamy mouthfeel, lots of spicy undernotes towards the lingering finish, a very good summer beer

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Station Ho. St., Montreal tap: Pours whitish, cloudy yellow with a white head. Aroma is light bits of funk, a bit of smoke, and some of that sour tart smell, whatever that is. Taste was not as sour as I expected that it would be, and it was actually more sweet than I thought it would be. The body was also fuller. There was also some spiciness in there.

olio (6115) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
75 cl bottle. Bottled on 10/2013.
Pours pale hazy golden color with a huge head, somewhat of a gusher this one. Quite weird but pleasant yeasty, spicy and smoky aroma, some lemon. Lemony fruits and yeast on the flavor, spices, some faint toffee notes and earth. A bit of a surprise this one, very pleasant in a way, and very flavourful with such a low abv. Weird but nice.

lusikka (6184) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 25, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy pale golden colour with a small head. Aroma is very interesting with smoked wood, white bread and herbal notes. Flavour of smoked wood, clove, pale malts, grassy bitterness, white bread and some herbal notes. Light bodied and soft carbonation. I’d say this is a smoked witbier. Easy, but weird.

thorongil2 (1189) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUN 23, 2014
(bottle) cloudy orange colour with a ridiculously tall head (the bottle sat for a week undisturbed in the cellar, then it was carefully opened - the foam exploded out, and kept coming out for about 5 minutes continuously as the beer was being poured); aroma is musty, smoky, smoked longans; balanced and refreshing flavour

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle,75cl corked. It’s an unclear, yellowish orange beer with a nice, white head. The aroma has some smoked malts, a fruity touch, some pale malts and hints of grains and beef jerky. It’s medium to thin bodied, dry and soft on the palate, low carbonation level. Some sweetness in the flavor, with salt, something herbal and spiced, feeling like coriander, still not, and a faint bitterness. Lasting finish. Very refreshing and easy drinkable this one, and tasteful too. 140502

Light yellowish pour from draft. Had this on draft at the Hopfenstark brewpub. Smokey for this style. Like beef jerky and lemon combo.
